I love mysteries. I like board games. And I also enjoy the two's lovechild, Clue. Clue was created in England during the World War II so that there was something to play during air raid drills. Originally entitled "Murder!", the game was taken to a company named Waddington's, and was rebranded "Cluedo". The game was patented in 1947, but because of the scarcity of supplies in post-war England, the game wasn't published until two years later. The game was very different from the version we play today, and included ten characters eleven rooms, nine weapons, and drastically different rules. But then we released the state of the game was stupid, and the game slowly morphed into the recognized version today.
