    It was Colonel Mustard, with the lead pipe.  In the conservatory. Playing this game is a great family memory from my childhood.

    A graet concept for a board game, wonderful for building deductive resasoning. But sometimes the games are just too short. A more complex version of clue would be awesome.

    I love this game!! Playing it with my family though was dangerous, we were cut throats! ;)The PC version is ok but is rather slow. I have a similar game called "Whodunit" only in that game you are a detetive and not a suspect.

    Clue was always fun (three or more players a MUST for this one)--good for learning logic when I was young. Too bad after a certain age, everyone's got the strategy down and we all figure out the answer at virtually the same time. A lot of fun for a family night in.

    Incredible. I grew up playing clue on stormy nights with my entire family. It teaches logic and never gets boring. Long live clue (I still dream about colonal Mustard!).

    I have always loved this game. You have a bunch of colorful characters (literally), and there is a sense of mystery and intrigue about it. Another thing I like about it is you have to use your brain to figure it out, not just throw the dice.

    This is a classic family game to play. You have to try to solve a murder mystrey by guessing which player did it, in what room, and with what tool. It is a challanging game.

    I still have my Clue game board from over thirty years ago.A fun who done it game.The player has to guess which person done it, with what, and what room.Once the player figures out the answer they must still get to the room they think it happened in.I can remember how anxious we got when you could see others knew who done and trying to get to that room first. Each player has cards dealt to them and must show a card on when requested.this game is still around today for this generations kids to play with.

    I love Clue, but i think it's more fun when you have 4-6 people playing. It teaches strategy and stuff like that. I have the Simpsons version of Clue. I love it!

    Clue is one of the most exciting and fun games ever made by a board game company in recent years. It is extremly easy to play, and it is fun and pretty educational too.

    I loved playing Clue as a kid and my family just received it for Christmas and I think I enjoy it even more now. It is one of those games that isn't too difficult, but at the same time, makes you feel somewhat intelligent. Every game is never gets boring and people of all ages can play.

    This is a game of mystery. It's all about playing the detective. You can play with a group of three people or more. It's another game that's good to learn as a child and can be played throughout the rest of one life.

    I really like this game because it's easy to learn but hard to win. The more people you play with the more fun it gets because you don't get as many cards as you would if you played with three people instead of five or six.

    Clue is an old game, but every time you play it it's different circumstances for the murder. You never know "who-dunnit" or "who-didit."

    This game is boring. There really is no purpose to playing this game. It's a mutiplayer game but then it's not fun. The game is too simple and I think it's a waste of time playing it.

    This is the best game ever invented. It's a board game you can play again and again and never get tired of it. It's always a new game with different players. You can form teams, make allies, and mess people up by not showing them the correct card. Also, the older you get, the better you are at playing the game. For example, instead of marking X's in the column, you mark what person gave you that card, so as the game goes on you can konw other people's cards without getting it shown to you. Some may say that's cheating, I say it's a good game plan.

    I loved being Ms. Scarlet, but playing with crafty older siblings often took the fun out of it. Used to be my favorite board game.

    I feel that this game helps you use your mind to make predictions and check them.

    Not enough immediate gratification for those of us raised on MTV. Still, Colonel Mustard was pretty cool.
