To Clue families, Clue FX takes the sleuthing experience to a new level thanks to the addition of sound, new characters, new places and new weapons that take you into the world of Clue like never before. Be the first player to deduce who, where and with what "offed" the attorney, Mr. Meadow Brook. Clue FX plays similarly to Clue [each player has three cards, three are hidden in an envelope] -- with the added assistance of Mr. Ash -- The Butler -- who "hosts" the game as a narrator (and an additional 8 suspect envelopes -- each holds one card/clue.) Ash calls out the players turn (in random order), the designated player can choose a location to visit. Upon moving their sculpted, decorated "clicker" pawn to the desired location and pressing the pawn on the board, players hear sound effects from the location and Ash shares if there are any suspects lurking around. If there is a suspect(s) at the location, the current player can peek at the card(s) held by that suspect(s). Players can then make a suggestion (to be refuted -- if possible -- by the next player) or "seek" and have Ash disclose where other suspects might be located (useful for the next turn.) The game plays out just like Clue -- when a player believes she knows who, where and with what, she can make an accusation on her turn, check the solution envelope and -- if correct, wins. (If incorrect, then the game continues with remaining players.) Ages 8 to Adult. For 2 to 4 players. Requires 3 "AA" batteries (not included).
