Clue Has Been Updated!

| Filed under: Etc.

clue.jpg

One of our favorite board games has just been 'modernized'!

In the new version of Clue, your favorite characters have had a little work done.

Their last names remain the same, but their first names and bios have been updated.

For example, Miss Scarlet is now Kasandra Scarlet, a famous actress often featured in tabloids. And Mr. Green is now Jacob Green, an African-American "with all the ins."

Colonel Mustard is now Jack Mustard, a former football player. And, the Professor is now Victor Plum, a billionaire video game designer.

Each character also now has a special power that could help players discover clues more quickly.

Special powers???? WTF???

Clue gets superhero!

Game maker Hasbro has also added more 'weapons', up from six to nine.

The candlestick, knife and rope remain, but now weapon choices include a dumbbell, trophy or poison.

The lead pipe, revolver and wrench are no longer part of the game.

New rooms have been included as well. There's now a theater, spa and guest house nearby.

Guest house?

How O.J-esque!

What do U think of all these changes????

    cool, can't wait to get it for christmas lol



  2. 2

    I think they should stick to the original, but whatever.



  3. 3

    cool!!!



  4. 4

    yesss



  5. 5



  6. 6

    That is incredibly stupid. Nothing was wrong with the old clue!



  7. 7

    lame-o!



  8. 8

    i like ;)
    as long as they keep the old oneee. originals still better.



  9. 9

    Stupid



  10. 10

    what does it mean if you comment 'first'? do you actually win/get anything?????????



  11. 11

    They should leave a classic exactly what it is (was) - a classic. This all seems to gimmicky. Also, what's the deal with all these product-endorsement blogs? First the Sopranos DVD Set, now this… ?



  12. 12

    How ridiculous. Better go buy the REAL version of Clue before they bastardize another childhood love of mine.

    Kasandra Scarlett, in the spa, with the trophy?? Are you serious, Hasbro? And HOW could you have gotten rid of the lead pipe, the revolver, and the wrench? Those are good old fashioned murdering devices! Next thing you know, Mr. Boddy will be morbidly obese and one of the weapons will be a ham sandwich.

    Way to go, Hasbro. Morons.

    could be fun!



  14. 14

    no revolver? wtf! but thats the giant cheshay wots the game without that?



  15. 15

    seriously, why change a classic?



  16. 16

    Aw I liked how it was..but hey change isn't always bad.



  17. 17

    Sounds good, I've always loved clue. I was hoping, when I read the heading, that it would be more like the Scene It movies and have a DVD part included. Meh, love that they vamped up the characters



  18. 18

    ahahaha hotness!! first btw

    Re: heartless – lmao - ham sandwich would be a sign of the times!



  20. 20

    nooo!
    it's a classic.



  21. 21

    cleshay*



  22. 22

    Love the original Clue & I'm sure that the newer version will make it even more fun & entertaining!



  23. 23

    Wow, way to ruin my life.
    Sounds really stupid…



  24. 24

    What's next Candy Land : Britney Spears Edition?



  25. 25

    What, Are the gonna update the movie next?



  26. 26

    I imagine miss scarlet as scarlett johansson. yummy.



  27. 27

    I wish they would leave games like this alone. I don't like the new monopoly either.



  28. 28

    Personally, I think the changes are shit.



  29. 29

    just stick to the original



  30. 30

    No Sir, I don't like it!!! I want the original back!! It better still be available! Clue is not supposed to resemble the O.C.! :(



  31. 31

    it a shame that they took out some of the weapons! lol but i think it's kinda cool



  32. 32

    Cant anyone leave well-enough alone??
    I, for one can tell you nothing will beat the original. I hope the game company allows the original to still be available on toy shelves……
    Some of the special edition Clue games are awesome, though—anyone ever see the Simpson's version with the Extenda-Golve weapon?!!! HA!!!!



  33. 33

    That looks like Catherine Zeta-Jones!

    34

    dont fuck with a classic!!!



  35. 35

    dont mess with a classic period.



  36. 36

    i'm surprised perez, i heard about this on the radio last week…. old news! and i think its awful, Clue is classic! but it will probably be fun anyway :)



  37. 37

    Thats pretty cool! The original is still awesome but I'm sure this one will be good as well!



  38. 38

    I can't wait! I love clue… Is it like scene it tho? That's lame if it is. i hate dvd board games….



  39. 39

    that is stupid…clue is one of my favorite games…what's the fun in it if you don't get to blame the Professor??



  40. 40

    that's actually kind of awesome.
    i totally love clue!

    This is the same type of thing they did in 1988 when Clue: Master Detective came out. It was a deluxe addition that had added suspects (I can remember Miss Peach and Sgt. Gray off the top of my head) as well as more weapons and a bigger game board with more rooms. As a kid I thought it was awesome. Why not update it?



  42. 42

    JESUS FUCKING CHRIST leave well enough alone! Won't matter in the long run as 99% of people can't figure out the fucking game and stick it back in the box after one try.



  43. 43

    blasphemy!! SUPERPOWERS?!?!?! they have GOT to be kidding. was there ANYTHING wrong with the old version of clue?? NO!! the fact that it has been "modernized" is stupid. its not going to up the sales of clue. if they are having trouble selling the game, its cause everyone already has one!! the old version i would but (again) in a heartbeat. this new one just looks like another crappy board game.



  44. 44

    Yet another game ruined by "updating"

    Classic games are classic for a reason.



  45. 45

    I think they should stay with the original game.



  46. 46

    six words.
    do not mess with colonel mustard.



  47. 47

    Some updates are nice, like new photos of the characters but some things should have just remained the same :/

    Guess that makes the old clue more valuable now!



  48. 48

    I like playing board games but none of my friends or family do so I've no one to play them with! If they wanted to make a modern "up-date" to an old game, they should have made it an on-line game! Maybe then there'd be someone to play the game *with*



  49. 49

    wttttffffff?? i dont even know what to say. its retarded!!



  50. 50

    i wonder if audrina will be living in that guesthouse! hahaha jk!



  51. 51

    Sounds cool to me. I'm a big fan of Clue…I even have the interactive talking one. So, this one might be cool to check out.



  52. 52

    Re: Alisa-Chan – LOL! I agree, no one EVER wants to play this game! Online would fucking ROCK!



  53. 53

    LAME. dont fuck with a classic…whats next? the damn high school musical kids ruining the movie as well?! screw that.



  54. 54

    Color me annoyed. That game rocked as it was. Like the movie based on the game.



  55. 55

    clue is my favorite game ever. i do NOT like these changes. you cannot change their names! the game is a classic, they shouldn't have done all of those changes.
    how sad.

  56. LIP says – reply to this


    56

    I dont like it at all. Our poor youth…



  57. 57

    She looks like Rebecca Gayheart……



  58. 58

    I don't like these changes. Thank God I have the old-school game here at home.



  59. 59

    Wow, you just plagiarized that from a MSN article. Cite your sources, weren't you taught that in college?



  60. 60

    I don't care about the race of the characters or the addition of first names BUT MY GOD DON'T TAKE AWAY MY LEAD PIPE! That is the only weapon I loved… might as well put a light saber into the mix.



  61. 61

    Uh….old fashioned is way better. Kasandra Scarlett? What is she a porn star. Colonel Mustard is way cooler than Jack Mustard. And is that Catherine Zeta Jones on the cover? Hahaha



  62. 62

    yayyyy! what coincidence. ive been so addicted to this game lately!!!!!!



  63. 63

    aw that's stupid how they modernized it. i wouldn't have mind if they updated it, but um why take away the old weapons? i don't like how they include new bios; their old names described them…. but WHATEVERRR.

  64. SKB says – reply to this


    64

    WHAT? Oh my gosh, this pisses me off so much and I don't even know why. KASANDRA? Isn't Miss Scarlett supposed to be a little, well, CLASSY? Oh, this is SHIT.



  65. 65

    woohoo!
    ….



  66. 66

    I'ma buy it. I love updated games, like the Monopoly Here and Now. Hook a bitch up!!!



  67. 67

    I know, blah blah, don't mess with a good thing but when was the last time the majority of you actually played Clue? At least this sounds interesting and I feel a desire to play it again.

    As long as they don't make it much more complicated, I still have to play this drunk dammit.



  68. 68

    OMFG I am seriously about to cry! WHY must corporate America fuck with everything classic and turn it into shit??? TV, movies, toys, now board games….

    I'm going out right now to buy the Classic version before the watered-down, politically correct, 2008 version takes over :(



  69. 69

    WTF!!! They got rid of the 3 best weapons(excluding the knife). What are they going to do now,replace the car in monopoly with a razor scooter………….LAME



  70. 70

    Alisa-Chan that is an awesome idea…….



  71. 71

    Why mess with perfection.



  72. 72

    I'm not buying it.



  73. 73

    that was too funny!



  74. 74

    is this the american version of Cluedo or something? anyways it sounds stupid, i hope they dont do it to our version



  75. 75

    I think it's a little much.. adding the bios and all that.. I'd still play it though :]



  76. 76

    once again, modern times ruining a classic.



  77. 77

    Suckfest. Classic is way better. What is clue without the wrench, revolver, or lead pipe?? Poison? Pfft, give me a break.



  78. 78

    In Swden, we call it "Cluedo"! ;) I think it sounds great by the way :) Miss the revolver though.. it's my thing!



  79. 79

    well… i love originals… but if Menopoly can make a zillion different versions of it self, why cant Clue make one?



  80. 80

    They've done the same sort of thing in the UK with Cluedo. The moment you add Spa then you've sold out as a game.

  81. Jo! says – reply to this


    81

    Why the hell is our version called 'Cluedo' wtf? Anyways I'd love this version hope it comes out in the grand ol' UK



  82. 82

    its not even clue anymore. they should call it "The Super Hero Game"
    it sickens me.

  83. JET says – reply to this


    83

    BLASPHEMY
    .
    Keep the original version, but also make a 2nd modern version. Replace the revolver with a semi-automatic, replace the dumbbell with anthrax, replace the trophy with an IED (Improvised Explosive Device), and replace the wrench with AIDS.
    .
    New characters could include O.J. Simpson, Robert Blake, Phil Spector, Gary Condit, Osama bin Laden, Michael Jackson, Lindsay Lohan and Sienna Miller.



  84. 84

    They should have at least kept their titles. Kasandra Scarlett isn't as cool as Miss Scarlet. :( Plus they shouldn't have gotten rid of some of the original weapons.



  85. 85

    ew superpowers? the game was a classic– you just can change it!



  86. 86

    Some things should just stay the same.

    Besides, I always pictured Professor Plum to be a kooky psychiatrist, like in the movie!

    I'm hanging on to my old board game.

  87. CEE-e says – reply to this


    87

  88. 88

    oh jeez.. why can't they just leave the classic shit alone?



  89. 89

    stick to the original. i mean superhero powers WTF?



  90. 90

    boo!

  91. Mtl23 says – reply to this


    91

    That is so stupid, there is no need to change a classic!



  92. 92

    In england the game is called Cluedo, and its not been changed yet. The classics are the best!!!



  93. 93

    OMG i wanna PLAYYYYY



  94. 94

    Pretty sweet! Makes me wanna go find it and buy it!



  95. 95

    wtf no.



  96. 96

    dang it!
    everythings changing!

    >.



  97. 97

    Sounds like fun, but then the old one was fun too! Soooooooooo………..
