New 60th Anniversary Version of Clue!

My favorite board game of all-time is back in a new edition! I remember the 50th anniversary Clue came out the Christmas before the actual 50th anniversary of 1999 (i.e. Christmas 1998), so I expected that this Christmas would reveal a 60th anniversary Clue (1949-2009) — and sure enough here it is (although it's not designated as an anniversary edition-- just an update)

Although I love the classic Clue, I actually think it was smart to update it a bit and add the modern mansion rooms. And nine weapons instead of six-- including a celebrity award (nice idea)!

See NPR link for full details.

Read the whole history of the game on this wikipedia link— the original UK game is called Cluedo.
