Clue Suspect Card Game ~ Family Game Series #10
Okay so by now you may know that I love playing Clue: The Classic Edition. Clue Suspect is a card game version of the original Clue. What I like about it is that it removes the board in an attempt to streamline the game. This makes it quicker and perfect for taking the game on the go! The object of the game is exactly the same as the original. You are trying to solve a crime by asking questions about the cards possessed by the other players. The difference is that instead of asking for a location, suspect and weapon; players can only ask for two things. The two things you can ask has to be of the same type. And through deduction skills and process of elimination players need to figure out the suspect, weapon and location involved in the crime.
The game comes with a selection of cards that are divided up like this: Case File cards, Evidence cards, Reminder Cards, the Crime card, and not-used-in-the-game-at-all cards. There are four sets of case file cards. They are identical and each player is given one set to start the game. Each set contains a card for each suspect, weapon, and room. The Reminder cards can be used as rule cards, we use them like this. The Evidence cards are similar to the Case File cards. There is one Case File card for each suspect, weapon, and room. However they have a slightly different purpose in the game. When you set up the game, one suspect, one weapon, and one room card are randomly removed from the Evidence cards. You then shuffle the rest and deal them evenly to the players. If there are any extra cards, they are placed face up where all can see them. The Crime card is placed over the three Evidence cards that are removed at the beginning of the game. The not-used-in-the-game-at-all cards are exactly that. There is a description card for each of the six suspects and four blank cards. Honestly I’m not sure as to why they are included as they are totally pointless.
This game is very easy to play, and I find it just as good as the board game. This one finishes quicker though. It’s a super fun game that our family enjoys playing!
A true clue experience is “in the cards” with the “clue suspect” card game. Played clue before? this game is very similar. Use your hand of cards to determine the suspect, weapon and location of the crime. Was it Colonel mustard in the dining room with the knife? or was Professor plum up to no good in the spa with the candle stick? ask questions until you are ready to zero in on your target and make an accusation. The first player to solve the crime wins! every time a player shows you an evidence card, you know it’s not in the confidential envelope. Put its matching case file card from your hand into your innocent pile – this is like crossing things out on a clue notepad. Each game provides an exciting new challenge of foul play to test your ability as a super-sleuth. PLUS the perfect travel game for clue fans! includes extra cards and special rules for a more advanced game. Includes (2) decks of cards, (1) confidential envelope and illustrated instructions. Clue suspect card game plays in 15-30 minutes, is recommended for ages 8+. for 3-4 players.
You can get this great game on Amazon and of course on Winning Moves!
