What is Clue?
Did you know that you can now find game-by-game stats of everyone, including Austin Rogers, who has won 10 or more games on Jeopardy!, here on the site?
Clue, known as Cluedo in the UK, was originally published in the late 1940’s by Waddington’s (and simultaneously published by Parker Brothers in the United States). When it was launched, they called it “The Great New Detective Game”, but were very quick to get a licence to use the Sherlock Holmes name from the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle estate. A film version of the game was released in 1985 and gained a cult following, even though it did poorly at the box office; the film now is well-known for being released with three different endings.
You can now get the following products (and others!) from our store! Here are our top sellers; all prices are in US dollars!
