Our Clued-In Murder Mystery board game was inspired by our most popular game Clued-In Murder Mystery Scavenger Hunt.
In our board game version you still need to discover who Murdered Mr. Boddy, with what weapon, and where the murder took place. It has all the same suspects, weapons, and locations as the scavenger hunt version except to play this game you don't have to leave the table.
Players still get to bribe, blackmail, form alliances, wager and even duel in order to learn what cards other players have discovered. If you liked the board game Clue, then you will LOVE Clued-In.
Play again and again because each time the solution is different!
Players each get a case file in which they will use to mark their discoveries. Their goal is to determine:
The three Solution cards are removed from the board at the set-up of the game. So if a picks up a card from the board they can mark if off their Case File because they know it is not one of the solutions - this is called a discovery. When you have discovered all the cards in each category except one you are ready to solve the case.
1. This printable game comes with a 4 pages that you connect to use as the game board.
2. Before the game starts you will remove one suspect card, one weapon card, and one location card and place them in an envelope or place where no one can get a peek at them.
3. There are 36 Game Cards total, to include:
Once you remove the three solution cards you will be left with 33. These 33 cards are to be shuffled without viewing. Each player is then dealt 4 cards and the remaining cards are placed on the board face-down in the allocated spots.
4. Now Each player gets a game piece - this can be anything from a coin to game pieces from other games - and places it at the start square. Roll the die to see who gies first. The first player then rolls the die and moves forth on the board. Depending on which space they land on they will depend on what Action they perform. See below for details.
When a player lands on a square it will have an image on it - that image will let you know which action they get to perform on that turn. The following are the Action Options:
SEARCH THE SCENE: Player Spins the Color Wheel and then chooses a card from the board that matches the color, replace it with a card from your hand.
FORM AN ALLIANCE: Player can choose a card off the board but they must also choose an alliance to show the card to as well.
OFFER A BRIBE: Choose any player to show you one of their cards, but you must show them one of yours as well.
BLACKMAIL: Demand another other player to show you one of their cards.
TAKE A GAMBLE: All players roll the dice. If you roll the highest you get to look at one card from everyone’s hand. If someone else rolls the highest they get to look at one card from your hand.
DUEL! When you land on a duel space if there is any other player on a duel space on the board you both must duel. The game is Rock-Paper-Scissors. The winner gets to see a card from the loser’s hand. Record it and give it back. The loser also gets sent back to the Start Square. NOTE: When two players land on the same space they must also duel.
INVESTIGATE: When you land on an investigate square you get an option to ask other players about thier discoveries, make an accusation, or Solve the Case and WIN THE GAME!
