Let’s Modernize Clue for 2015

MsFleekClue was one of our favorite childhood board games. While we’re nostalgic for the original edition, it’s clear that this classic is in need of an update. We have some ideas, and hope that Parker Brothers will contact us about implementing them.

SUSPECTS
The current characters are simple, but boring. Why does the green piece need to be called Reverend Green? Jazz it up:

  • Miss Fleek
  • Professor Yolo
  • Colonel Emoji
  • Reverend Ratchet
  • Mrs. Twerk
  • Dr. Swag

WEAPONS
There’s a nice variety here, but again, they’re all dated. We have a contemporary vision that will capture this generation’s imaginations:

  • Bath Salts
  • iPhone 6 Plus
  • Sham Wow
  • Vape Pen
  • Selfie Stick
  • AK-47

ROOMS
Mansions may still be relevant, but do you think Kim Kardashian has a Conservatory? She doesn’t. Here’s what the rooms will look like in a modernized edition of Clue:

  • Kitchen
  • Dining Room
  • Whiskey Bar
  • Real World Confessional
  • Wine Cellar
  • 20-Car Garage
  • Sex Dungeon
  • Bowling Alley
  • Home Movie Theater
  • In-ground Pool

RESULTS
These updated roles, items and settings provide a lot of fun new combinations as players try to solve the case. “Professor Yolo in the Sex Dungeon with the Bath Salts” has a much better ring to it than “Mrs. White in the Lounge with the Rope,” don’t you think?
