Not so good with only two players



A little while ago I was sorting through the garage when I discovered an old game of Cluedo from 1965. Once belonging to my grandparents and dad when he was a child, it had somehow migrated to our house.

Launched in 1949 by Anthony Pratt, Cleudo is a classic board game, but one I had never played, so I decided to give it a go. The game is for two to six players - the more players, the more challenging - with each person taking on a character from the game. Each character is a suspect in the murder of Dr. Black, and it is up to you to discover who the culprit is, what weapon they used, and which room the murder was committed in.


To do this you roll a die and make your way into the various rooms, where you make suggestions as to who the murderer is. Every player has a set of 'murder cards', and you have to whittle these down until there is only one possible combination left.

With physical pieces, and the opportunity for conversation, it makes for a brilliant family game that brings everyone together.
