Clue (Cluedo in Britain and abroad) is a detective board game made by Parker Brothers, a division of Hasbro.


There are 6 suspects, each of a different color. They are:

  • Miss Scarlet
  • Mrs. Peacock
  • Mrs. White
  • Mr. Green (Rev. Green in Britain)
  • Colonel Mustard
  • Professor Plum


There are six weapons, which are:

  • Knife (Dagger) in Britain)
  • Rope
  • Lead Pipe
  • Revolver
  • Candlestick
  • Wrench (Spanner in Britain)

The Board

The board is set to look like a mansion, titled "Tudor Mansion" in recent editions, or "Tudor Close" in the British versions. There are 9 rooms on the board, which are:

  • Ballroom
  • Hall
  • Lounge
  • Study
  • Billiard Room
  • Conservatory
  • Dining Room
  • Kitchen
  • Library

The Lounge, Study, Kitchen, and Conservatory each have secret passages to these rooms on the corners of the board.

How to Play

Up to six players select their suspects, which must be the one closest to the player. After the suspects are selected, one player takes a suspect card, a weapon card, and a room card and puts them in a solution envelope, which is put in the center of the board. The remaining cards are then dealt clockwise to the players.

The object of the game is to correctly suggest and prove, through elimination, who murdered "Mr. Boddy" (Dr. Black in Britain) with which weapon and in which room.
