I love Cluedo. It's one of those board games that has a couple of very distinct advantages. 1. It doesn't take much to master
2. It doesn't take hours to play
3. There's just enough strategy and
4. It's the right balance of luck and skill
It is also the sort of game that even a competitive games family such as mine manages to play without too much name calling or cheating. That's quite a result. So we were very happy to accept an invitation to Cluedo the Interactive Game.
All the characters were there: Miss Scarlett, Reverend Green, Col Mustard, Mrs White, Professor Plum and Mrs Peacock as well as Dr Black. Everyone got into the spirit. Some guests also got into a few too many spirits which didn't much enhance their problem solving abilities but you get that. It was set in 1934 and all the characters were dressed to match. A jazz band played. It was all fun and games until someone got hurt ... by which I mean Dr Black was murdered.
Then we had to solve the crime using the best Cluedo approach of elimination. Our team - the purples - got there but we were too slow. Still, a good night was had by all.
