Most people will know the board game called Cluedo and will therefore be aware of the object of the game. I will not insult your intelligence by explaining the gist of the game here. But I would like to talk about the PC game called Cluedo – murder at Blackwell Grange made by Hasbro.

The CD needs Windows 95 or above to run, and you also need DirectX 5.0 or higher. However, do not worry if you don’t have this, because a copy is on the CD and when you install, it asks if you want to add it and you just like yes or no.

The installation of the game is easy and once loaded, it does not take long to start playing. You can either play against real humans in the same room as you, or via the internet or you can play against computer players.

The part I loved most about the game was the choice of preferences. If you want it too, you can see your suggestions of how the murder occurred in little movie snippets, you can have the house in spooky darkness and the walls of the mansion can be solid or translucent. There is a butlers voice that can talk you through the game play and the characters have there own special way of walking!!

But the very, very best bit is what is not mentioned in the instruction manual. In each room, there are articles and items you can click on that make it do strange things – the bear can dance ( or sometimes growl), lights go on, record players play, pictures fall off walls and much much more. This really appealed to me as I was starting to play the game.

If you quite like Cluedo, I think this is a great little game, ideal from child to adult and it has some novel features in it. You can pick the game up now for about a tenner, and I think its well worth the money.

How much was this? Is it one or more players?
