Count Eutin was found murdered after a dinner party at his villa. The guests are all considered suspicious and even the murder weapon and the precise sequence of events are not clear. But neither Horatio Caine nor Dr. Temperance Brennan determine, for sure, the 3-6 players are required which take in one person or even just the guests.
The game Cluedo by Anthony E. Pratt was published in 1948, the first time and is considered a classic in the field of Deduktionsspiele. Since then it has appeared in different versions. We want to be included in this report, the classic mode and the new edition. All variants have in common is that the players should be determined by logical inferences from mutual surveys the scene, the weapon and the murderer. Who creates it as the first is the winner.
The material is high quality and invites you to play. The schedule shows the rooms of the villa. These are obviously different for each edition, but all variants make a little envious, because who wants no home theater or a
huge conservatory? The cards in the game to show the possible areas, people and weapons. In the new edition are also still in character and action cards included. To play now lack only the Pawns for each person, the miniatures of the weapons made of plastic and metal, and the dice.
At the start of the game, each player selects a person and draw them to the appropriate starting field. All figures are not elected but placed on the schedule, as always come to all persons as potential assassins in question. Subsequently, the cards are designed for people and places and ordered one each of each variety placed face down in the case record. Then the remaining cards are shuffled and distributed to the players. In the new edition every player be assigned to the mixed nature of maps and action maps. Now we can start hunting the killers.
If a player's turn, he rolls the two dice and can move his character entsprehend the number of dots. He reaches this room, he may express a suspicion. To this end he draws any person and any weapon in the room where he stands. This results in eg the suspicion that "Reverend Green murdered" the count in the "kitchen" with the "rope". If the player to the left of the active player a card that matches the suspect, he has to show the active player. Did he not show the next player has a matching card, etc. With this information, it is possible to exclude certain combinations until you have a definite suspicion. Is one of the series, and certainly know the right answer, you go in the appropriate space and makes a charge. Now the active player may look at the case file. Meeting all of his evidence, he has won, otherwise he is out of the game.
In the new edition will be broken up the flow of play or by the character and action cards. These always include a specific action, which one may use at any time. New cards do you get when your own character is transferred to a suspicion that on the schedule a field with a "?" Is reached or one rolls the appropriate icon.
The game is entertaining and always exciting. However, Fortuna has a say, because there must always be the correct number of dots in order to reach a particular area. The game would also be suitable for players of different ages and can be a good option for a family-safe Deduktionsspiel count. Not for nothing, it is enthusiastically played for over 50 years all over the world. Which version is the Matching, should decide one's own taste. The new edition of "Classic" version, however, is highly recommended, as they aufpeppt the simple game principle by the new action cards and thus always a few unexpected turns brings into play.
This game should be seen as the launch of a small series Deduction, puzzle and puzzle games to demonstrate the range of the genre again. Other games in the series are to be found here.
