Clue is a crime fiction board originally published in the United Kingdom in 1948. It was developed Anthony Pratt, a lawyers clerk from Birmingham, England. Clue is now published in the United States by the game and toy company named Hasbro. The game takes place in a mansion and the game board is divided into different rooms. The players each represent a character that is staying at the mansion as a guest. The mansion’s owner Dr. Black or Mr. Boddy has been murdered. Players attempt to solve who's the murderer of Dr. Black or Mr. Boddy. The solution to the murder requires the three components of suspect, weapon, and room. At the beginning of Clue, three cards are chosen at random and placed in a special envelope, so that no player can see them. The three cards that are placed in the special envelope consist of one suspect card, one weapon card, and one room card. These cards represent the true facts of the case. The remaining cards are distributed among the players.
The aim of the game is to deduce the details of the murder, which are the cards in the envelope. In other words, the aim of Clue is to deduce exactly who's the murderer in the mansion. There are six different characters, six different weapons, and nine different rooms. The rooms could include a hall, lounge, kitchen, dining room, ball, room, conservatory, billiard room, library and study, giving 324 possible solutions to the questions who's the murderer, what room was the murder committed in, and what weapon was used to commit the murder. In order to solve the murder, players announce suggestions to the other players; for instance, it was Mrs. Peacock in the ballroom with the candlestick. Now that all of the elements of this board game have been laid out it is time to enjoy a relaxing and intriguing game of clue; play this game, if you dare.
