Cluedo Cluedo is a version of the popular Waddington's board game known as Clue in the U.S.A.

The game is a detective / puzzle game for one to six players, though the computer will play five of these for a single player game. The objective is to determine who killed Dr Black, where they killed him, and what the murder weapon was. This is achieved by a process of elimination. Each player has three clue cards. When all of these have been accounted for, what remains unaccounted for is the solution.Players can learn what other cards other players have by making suggestions. The game rules require opposing players are asked in turn if they possess any of the items suggested and if they do one card must be revealed.

This computer game follows the board game very closely starting with rolling the dice for a high number to see who goes first.After that the cards are shuffled and play commences. The dice is rolled. When it is the turn of a human player a series of options are presentedRoll Dice : self explanatoryNotes : is used by the player to record who & what they suspect and who & what has been eliminatedClue Cards : the player can view their own clue cardsPassage : As in the board game, the player may surrender a turn and take a secret passage to another roomSuggestion : Ask opposing players if they possess any of the cards suggestedAccusation : used when a player has enough information to end the gameNext : used after a roll of the dice to pass control to the next playerThe game also has an optional sound feature which plays music before each player, 'Colonel Bogey' before Col. mustard etc. [source:mobygames]
