Call the police! (Again!) The unfortunate Mr. Boddy has been showing up dead in his mansion ever since Anthony Pratt invented the game of Clue in England in 1944. Here's another chance for intrepid country-house weekenders like you to do him in (or have fun trying to figure out who did). In this 50th Anniversary edition, the 19-inch, square green board represents nine rooms in the Boddy mansion. The suspects are 1.75-inch metal figurines of Colonel Mustard, Professor Plum, Mrs. Peacock, and the late Mr. Boddy's other so-called friends. Other game elements include a die, a Clue card pack, and a pad for keeping track of suspects, locations, and weapons. The weapons are 1.5-inch-long metal models of a dagger, a pipe wrench, etc. Read the story of a weekend gone tragically wrong, and then set up the board and seek the awful truth. Just be sure to watch your back--unless, of course, YOUdunit. --Richard Farr
