Crime Themed 7 Day Deal Coming Soon


Items for the next 7 Day Deal have been added to the inventory. These items shown below remind me of the game Clue.

  1. The correct name for the game is Cluedo, which was invented by Waddington in Leeds, England in 1949, It was devised by Anthony E. Pratt, a solicitor's clerk and children's entertainer from Birmingham, England. It is published by the United States game and toy company Hasbro, which acquired its U.S. publisher Parker Brothers, and Waddingtons.

    Numerous games, books, and a film have been released as part of the Cluedo franchise. Several spinoffs have been released featuring various extra characters, weapons and rooms, or different game play. The original game is marketed as the "Classic Detective Game", while the various spinoffs are all distinguished by different slogans.

    But as i know Americans have a short attention span so they couldn't cope with 2 syllables so they changed the name to just plain old 'clue' ;-)

  2. In Canada and the U.S., the game is known as Clue. It was retitled because the traditional British board game Ludo, on which the name is based, was less well known there than its American variant Parcheesi

  3. How interesting :) LOL "Americans have a short attention span" ... I'll hurry to go look it up before I forget ;-)
