I have added a new page that I'm going to use to track my "Clue" game collection. As I update it I'll try and keep it, somewhat, in chronological order with the oldest editions of the game coming first. I have shown of the three versions of the Disney Haunted Mansion Clue here before, so those are photos that will be added to that page. Mostly I'm doing this to have an excuse to inventory my games and figure out exactly what I have, including which games are complete and which games I need to find pieces for.
This morning I am putting up pictures of the 1st American edition of clue, circa 1949-1950. This is a transition era game as games moved from small boxes with separate boards to larger boxes that contained everything.
This is the 1949 Small box edition. I'm continually keeping my eye out for these as the colors of the box faded so quickly from a pretty nice darker green to a rather ugly grayish green. This is probably the best of the bunch as far as color goes and it is complete (although I forgot to take a picture of the board). I have a second copy that is only a little lighter in color from this one but neither are really close to the original.
Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)
