Cluedo & Clue Miscellaneous


Clue Christmas Ornament:

There may have been others that were released in previous years (like the various Monopoly ornaments), but none that I'm aware of. Just released this year, and only available at K-Mart stores in the "World's Greatest Games" collection, this ornament features a miniature board with all six weapons and pawns on it, along with the Case File envelope with cards in it. Sitting on top of the board is a Santa in a detective outfit, holding some cards in one hand and a magnifying glass in the other (and it really magnifies!). Other ornaments in this series include Monopoly, Life, Twister, and Trivial Pursuit Genus IV. Retail at $5.99 each.

Clue Christmas Ornament 2:

Very similar to the Clue Christmas Ornament (above) this version of the ornament differs slightly in that Santa is wearing a Santa Suit, rather than a detective suit, and half of his body is above the board, the other half is below.

Clue Keychain:

This keychain looks like the current Clue box. The top flips open to reveal a miniature game board. Inside a drawer are die and a couple pieces (not sure which ones). They usually sell for around $3.99.

I've finally got hold of one of these keychains (thanks Jaime!) so I finally know what it is. It is as Timothy describes it, but the items you get are a die, a dagger and a candlestick. It's a bit disappointing if you think you are getting a proper game but quite neat if you think of it as a novelty item.

03/06/02: It has become apparent that there are other weapons available than the dagger and candlestick. Damian Griffin found a revolver and a candlestick in his. Could all six weapons be out there?

Cluedo Keyring:

Very similar to the keychain above, a British version has been released with the UK 2000 cover instead of the US cover. The packaging of this version has been clearly labelled to say "Game CANNOT be played!" as like the US version, the keyring only contains one die and two weapons.
Thanks to Louise for the picture.

Cluedo Instant Scratchie (Australian lottery scratchie tickets):

These have just been released in Australia for $3. They are 16cm by 10cm and have a miniature version of the Cluedo game board and a solution box on one side of the ticket - you scratch the rooms. On the other side is a list of characters, rooms and weapons under the title of "Your List" which you scratch (there is also a prize column);

Here are the instructions, as printed on the back:
           1. Scratch one of the nine room panels (HALL etc.) pictured on the "GAME BOARD" to reveal two symbols. The symbols revealed in a room panel will be either a "SUSPECT" and/or a "WEAPON" and/or a "ROOM". For each symbol revealed in that room panel, scratch the equivalent/same "SUSPECT" name and/or "WEAPON" name and/or "ROOM" name shown on  "YOUR LIST".
           2. Repeat step '1' for the other eight room panels.
           3. By the end of the game you will have scratched and revealed eighteen symbols in nine room panels on the "GAME BOARD", and scratched a total of eighteen of the "SUSPECT", "WEAPON", or "ROOM" names on "YOUR LIST".
           4. One "SUSPECT" name, one "WEAPON"  name and one "ROOM" name will remain unscratched on "YOUR LIST". If you have correctly played the game these "YOUR LIST" names will not match any of the symbols that appear in the nine room panels on the "GAME BOARD".
           5. Scratch the "SOLUTION" panel on the "GAME BOARD". Each symbol in the "SOLUTION" panel that matches a remaining (unscratched) "YOUR LIST" name wins the money amount shown under "PRIZE" beside that "YOUR LIST" name.
                              You can win up to three times on this ticket.

Play Bites - Cluedo Scratch Card Detective Game :

Cluedo for the person in a hurry! In this shortened version of the game for either one or two players, you have a scratch card which has a list of all the cards, the murder cards, the cards in your hand and the cards in you opponent's hand (if you play the two player game). You scratch off the silver panels next to a suggestion - and it will tell you how many cards you got right. The idea is to work out whodunit, with what and where, by scratching off as few panels as possible. A box contains six scratch cards and a keyring scratcher. (Images show the British and American versions).

Cluedo "Pub Quiz" Machine:

A very popular arcade/pub quiz/fruit machine in which you move around the edge of the board by answering trivia questions correctly. Whenever you land in a room you can make a deduction and are told whether each of the items are a murder card.
The jackpot is won by making the correct deduction; or a smaller jackpot by collecting all six suspects (by landing on their squares.)
Other tactics include getting a card to be told a clue (e.g. the murderer was a woman), a secret passage to jump to a room (the best of the cards) or extra lives for when you get a question wrong.

Cluedo Super Sleuth Fruit Machine:

Another arcade machine, this time in the standard "Fruit Machine" format and made by MayGay. Complete with nudge buttons and all, it has a £10 jackpot and accepts 10p, 20p, 50p and £1 coins.

DistaclorMR Mouse Mat:

Drug company "Lilly" have been promoting their antibiotic DistaclorMR with the tag line "Who Killed The Infection?" and used "Cluedo" as it's motif. One gimmick was a mouse mat with a reworking of the board - renaming the rooms as "The Surgery", "The Treatment Room", "The Dispensary" & "The Waiting Room". There is a clear fluid trapped under the clear plastic cover with some of the weapons floating in it.

Cluedo Christmas Crackers:

These Christmas Crackers that were released in the UK for Christmas 2001 (and sold in the shop Boots) are a bargain! For £10 (or in the deal 2 for the price of 1) you get 6 crackers - each containing a hat, suspect sticker and a trivia question related to the character (e.g. White's is "What is the white trail behind a jet plane composed of?") - plus a complete version of the 2000 edition of the game! The game comes packaged in a box covered in the newspaper article from the cover of 2000 and the quote:

'Murder, you say?'
'But who, where and how?'
...All the answers will be revealed inside.

The cards, playing pieces, weapons and dice are the identical ones from the 2000 game and the board is the same board, but chopped into jigsaw pieces!
So basically, for 5 pounds you get a more portable version of the game, plus more than the 18 pounds version! Bargain!

BTW, the answer to the question above is "Ice Crystals".
Thanks to: Bob Cook and Louise for telling me to go to the shops!

Clue Lego Minifigs (Unofficial):

eBay seller wag.footsteps had the fun idea of combining Lego pieces from several sets, to make a cast of Clue characters along with a weapon each! Click on the picture left for a better look.

Michael Ozlawiz writes:

  • Scarlet's shirt is taken from the pizzeria set. The lead pipe she is holding is a Ron's magic wand from the Harry Potter Legos. I don't know where the face came from and her Lego hair color is hard to find.
  • Mustard is better known as Baron Von Baron (Lego currently has him named Sam Sinister, which is actually the name of his old sidekick). He is included in the Adventure sets. The candlestick he is holding is the bottom of a lightsaber from the Lego Star Wars collection.
  • Mrs. White is a cook. There are many Lego sets including cooks exactly like her. The knife she has is not unique in the Lego world.
  • Plum is a combo of many things. His Hair belongs to Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter Legos. His face is that of a scientist from the retired Time Twister sets. His shirt is from a goblin from the Harry Potter sets. His pants are Professor Snape's from the Harry Potter sets. The gun is included in many sets.
  • Most of the pieces on Mrs. Peacock seem to be retired except the hat, arms, and pants. The rope she carries is in many sets but is usually used as a vine.
  • Mr. Green is from a retired Lego Western set. His wrench could be from a lot of sets. Trust me. I have all the Harry Potter sets and a lot of these other sets and if I don't have them I've seen them in my issue of Lego Magazine I receive every other month.
Thanks to Michael Akers, Adam Seirafi, Michael Ozlawiz, Daniel Cogburn and wag.footsteps for their input to this item.
