Clue is one of those transcendent games that's maintained it's viability for over 50 years. Why? It still feels fresh and is flat-out fun to play.

Here's a quick synopsis for the unfamiliar: There's been a murder at the mansion and you're a character in a race to figure out who did it, what weapon they used, and which room the murder occurred in. Be the first to get your accusation right and you win the game.

The suspect, weapon, and room combo changes every game through a brilliantly simple process involving cards and a CONFIDENTIAL case file envelope. It takes about 5 minutes to set up and usually between 20 - 40 minutes to play. Clue can be played with as few as 2 people, but 3 - 6 is ideal as it adds layers to uncovering clues (without increasing the complexity). The game states it's appropriate for ages 8 and up, and my 8-year-old understands the concepts well enough to have lots of fun and often be competitive (if I leave my cut-throat self at the door). The learning curve for this game is really quick, especially if you have a seasoned player helping explain the rules. If not, don't worry. You'll be solving murders in no time.

The "Classic Edition" bills itself as having the "Original Suspects, Rooms, & Weapons". (There have been a few updated editions released that included extra weapons and rooms.) If you grew up on Clue or are familiar with editions released prior to 1990, this will very likely be the format you're familiar with. The character pawns are stained wood and all weapons are metallic. The only difference I detected from my 1980s edition was the artwork on the cards. It looks as though the manufacturer resurrected the original 1949 artwork as well, giving the game a very classic, whodunit-y feel.

Now this is the Clue I so fondly remember from childhood! This game calls to mind the golden age of British mysteries; I am always surprised not to find Hercule Poirot or Jane Marple wandering through the story. Same classic rooms, same old weapons, same great characters- this is the version of Clue to play if you want to recall those rainy childhood afternoons. I was delighted to find it after seeing the new version which is not at all to my taste.

I played clue as a kid. Was looking for the classic version for my 7 year old son for this past Christmas. We played it together and he LOVED it. Still the same game, still lots of fun!

My family always plays a lot of games, and during the past year I guess we've been playing very regularly (TV viewing time has decreased dramatically by design). Lately, we've been rotating between the 'new' and the 'old' and, when Clue's turn came around, well... we had the usual great time. Teaching my kids about reasoning and how to apply deductive logic seems so abstract until you play this game. Process of elimination? Clue illustrates it in spades. Who did it? Where? Using What? The basic premise - solving a mystery - is an intuitive and fundamental part of our essence, regardless of what the mystery actually is. That's why playing this game is more than just being a 'detective'. Unsurprisingly, I still haven't come across anybody who doesn't like it. A classic in every sense of the word.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
In a time when it seems that the classic board games are being produced and sold at the cheapest price point possible, this edition of Clue might make someone pause. After all, when big box retailers are offering games at $5 each, why pay almost three times that amount? This item answers that question well.

According to the box, Clue has been around since 1949, which predates me by more than a few years. When you open the box, you will find the game board that is folded in half and measures approximately 19"x19" when unfolded. The printing on the game board is well-done, and the thickness of the board reminds me of the board games I played back in the 70s and 80s.

The game pieces continue the classic feel. Rather than some lightweight plastic material, the suspected weapons have a metallic feel and weight to them. The game tokens are plastic, but that's also something that I'm accustomed to outside of Monopoly and its metal tokens. The game cards are sturdy and should hold up to repeatedly play and the normal wear and tear that come from use by kids of various ages.

Clue is a game that requires a little more from players than just rolling a die and moving a piece. Players must use deduction skills to figure out who did it, where, and how. The box says that it's good for those aged 8 and above. A test group of kids from 9-13 enjoyed playing the game, but I do think that kids younger than 7 or 8 will probably lose interest before the game is completed.

It's nice to see a classic, well-built edition of a popular game. I would much rather pay the money to have something that will last for years than to get something that is not durable and just doesn't have a good feel while playing it just because it was on sale for $5.
