Cheaply made game that is not nearly as much fun as the original!
on June 24, 2012
Clue was one of the top games we played when I was a kid and we even played it with our grandsons. We thought we would buy this game for our youngest grandson to teach him how to do deduction like a detective. The game requires you to find out who ate the cake, with what drink and at what time. Over all the game is boring and not fun to play.
Our biggest surprise is how cheaply the game is made. You even have to put stickers onto a cube to make a single die to throw to determine your moves. Parts are all cheaply made plastic and you have to put plastic stickers onto them to use them. Characters are cardboard cutouts that slip into the plastic stands that contain the cake or a blank white piece with no clue. Playing the game seems complicated for young children and there is really no action or excitement.
For the price of this game it is a rip-off because of the very poor quality of construction. There are a lot more fun games out there so don't waste your money on this one.
