Much better than the board game!
July 16, 2004

This game is a much faster game than the original Clue game and has more variables of play. You do no have to go slowly around the board with the roll of the dice but can immediately be in a place depencing on the cards in your hand. The cards allow you to also ask to see a male suspect from everyone sitting at the table, see multiple location cards, etc. Be warned that this makes the game much faster and keeps you working hard to be the first person to figure it out.

This game has been a hit at parties and everyone seems to agree that it is much better than the original when I ask them after playing with them. I have both games myself but the board game is just taking up space on the shelf.

 
 
 
 
 
Faster edition of a classic
February 09, 2005

I have to say that I think this game is very similar to the original board game (a classic which I love). The thought process required to win this game is almost identical to the original board game. The difference, as stated in the earlier reviews, is the tempo of the card game. No more rolling and waiting to make your way to that room you've been longing to get to all game. This makes it great for those times when you want a quicker game.

I would classify this as a new spin on an old classic. It's not really an improvement, and not really a sequel. It's just a new way to deduce whodunit.

 
 
 
 
 
If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It
October 14, 2003

Clue: The Card Game takes the original board game a step further: Mr. Boddy has been killed, but the murderer has escaped and is headed to an unknown location via an unknown mode of transportation. There are still the original six suspects, but the six weapons have been replaced with vehicles (Airliner, Automobile, Train, Hot Air Balloon, Seaplane, and Limousine). The nine rooms of the mansion have been replaced with destinations from all over the country (Coney Island, Niagara Falls, Lincoln Memorial, Miami Beach, Mt. Rushmore, Old Faithful, Golden Gate Bridge, The Alamo, and Hoover Dam). There are also action cards that help in making suggestions, eliminating suspects, etc.

The only advantage over the board game is, obviously, no moving around the board at a snail's pace, and you don't have to worry about another player snatching you up and plopping you down on the other side of the board just as you were about to enter a particular room. But it just isn't the same; at least that made the board game more of a challenge. I love the board game, and was excited about the card game until I played it.

The game is fast-paced compared to the board game, and is suitable as a filler, much like Razzia and Reiner Knizia's Vampire. But the game does nothing to improve on the original, and in fact takes away from it. I wish I could love it, but this game just isn't necessary.
