The Game of "Clue"; Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition

Its been a tough month, far busier than I expected it to be and I just haven't had the time to really sit down and paint or really do anything gaming or railroad related. I still need to box up and ship out the loot from my birthday giveaway. However, I did find time to acquire a new copy of "Clue". Well a friend acquired it for me. He was very excited because he know that I have been searching for the Dungeons and Dragons edition of Clue. We met at my 2nd Saturday painting workshop and he proudly displays it and I burst his bubble  by saying "that's not the right one"! However, it is a revamped edition and I didn't have it so I was happy to take it off his hands. The first licensed "Clue" variant was the Alfred Hitchcock Clue Game in 1999, followed quite quickly by the Scooby Doo version also in 1999. The Simpsons edition first appeared in 2000, making the Dungeons and Dragons edition the 4th in the licensed lineup in 2001. Now, 12 years later we get a new edition. As far as I can tell there are no major changes to the game itself or the components, just the box size has been changed. I still need to a 1st Edition Dungeons and Dragons clue at a reasonable price for the collection.

Here are the picture of the Dungeons and Dragons "Clue" game:

    1. I have seen them priced as much as $110 on Ebay. I'm not sure if they actually sold it at that price or not. I might be willing to pay $40 for a copy in at least good condition. Condition is definitely an issue with this version of "Clue" I have seen some pretty beat up versions out there.

    2. I'll keep my eye out for that sort of merchandise!

    3. You never know what you will find. Of course the center piece of Clue games is the Franklin Mint edition.
