As a huge clue fan I felt that I had to buy this because it had a talking gameboard. I was shocked when I opened it to find that it is practically nothing like the original clue. It has suspects, locations and weapons on cards still, but there is no dice and you have to "interview" all of the suspects (you look in their envelope which has a card in it...it's hard to explain). Since me and my college friends have nothing better to do we've played it almost every night since we got it. Its a really fun game if you go into it thinking that you are not really playing clue, and you are just playing some new game. But in the end, we have played at least 3 games every night, sometimes staying up until 4am.
It's really fun but DONT THROW AWAY YOUR REGULAR CLUE!!
(ps. one really negative thing is that since you aren't a suspect and you are a detective, there is a max of 4 players. One plus this that now you can play clue with 2 players.)

I read the reviews to this game and was not sure if I would like the game. I love the original clue game and was somewhat skeptical because of some of the reviews. My husband and I then began playing the game and loved it. It is a quick game that you can play over and over again. In one night we played four games. This game is very similar to the original game with fun twists. I recommend this game to anyone who enjoyed playing the original clue game.

Clue was a favorite growing up, so when Clue FX came out, I was intrigued. The game is very different now, with different suspects, locations, weapons, etc. That was a little disappointing, because you got used to the characters and the weapons and rooms growing up, but it was fine overall. I enjoy playing this version, but in moderation. That's because there are several drawbacks (mostly with sounds):

1. If you are playing with people you want to have a conversation with, it becomes extremely annoying that the game keeps talking to you, telling you when it's someone's move and not giving anyone enough time to decide about their move or think something through before the announcer reminds you, "Miss Lavender, please move." I cannot tell you how many times this has irritated us to the point we decide to stop the game, or we cut down how long we will play it because it is getting so frustrating.

2. As an adult, it's a little embarrassing to pull out this sound FX, 3-D game board that seems better suited for a young person's game time.

3. The time factor between it becoming your turn and the announcer starting to irritate you with prompts to move is extremely short, so even if you are not trying to have a conversation, but simply want to think for a minute, it's annoying. What is more frustrating is there is a button you can push if someone is taking too long (for real) in making their move that will force a prompt, so why did this game get set up to prompt you automatically? And it keeps going, so if you are just simply taking a bathroom break or getting something to drink, it gets old really fast.

I was sucked into buying this game because it said "deluxe" on the box. The directions are pretty long and it takes a while to finally understand the game. Don't get me wrong the game is okay...after all, it does have a very pretty box, lol. However, at several points in the game I thought that maybe I should have stuck to the original Clue. The original clue is a lot easier to understand. And the talking voices kind of get repetitive and annoying after awhile in the deluxe edition.

As a fan of all things Clue, I bought this game the instant I saw it. While not unlike the original board game, Clue FX brings a new spin on an old classic that can entertain for hours.

The biggest perk of this game is that it is for 2-4 players. This is the first version of Clue I've seen that works for just two people, which is great when you can't find enough people to play the original. Also, the way the game has been engineered, regardless of number of players, no one is at an advantage. In the original Clue, whenever 4 or 5 people played, some people got more cards than others. This is not the case here!

While maintaining the typical who/with what/where format of the original, Clue FX provides eight suspects, and adds the twist that each suspect holds one of the "innocent" cards. So, not only do players need to make suggestions to deduce whodunit, but they also need to track down each of the eight suspects as they search the grounds. Another change is that players can move anywhere on the board in each turn, which speeds up the game.

While it could be confusing to newcomers, Clue FX is a welcome and exciting twist on the original game. I highly recommend giving it a try.

Although I had never played the original Clue game, the talking version appealed to me. Clue FX is a fun game that is educational in two ways. It uses problem solving and listening skills which improve everyday skills as well. It says "more mystery" on its cover and it is true to its word. It has more suspects than the original game. To summarize: If you took the best features from every single game I ever played, plus added a few of your own that you never saw before, Clue FX adds up to that.
