Clue is a murder mystery game for three to six players. This collection features the six most famous and notorious serial killers in history. The murder happens in Cecil Hotel, where stories of suicides, murders, and serial killers checking in for the night all turned this 19-story building into a place talked about more for its creepy history than hospitality.
This board game is inspired by many serial killers such as Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Ed Gein, Amelia Dyer, Jane Toppan, and Nannie Doss. All weapons were chosen from the tools that serial killers have used for their crimes. The six weapons include a crowbar, a noose, a drill, a syringe, a knife, and a hairpin. The game is designed in art deco style to match the original hotel interior. By establishing this ironically elegant aesthetic, it creates a unique selling point that attracts murder mystery fans.
