The classic detective game! In Clue, players move from room to room in a mansion to solve the mystery of: who done it, with what, and where? Players are dealt character, weapon, and location cards after the top card from each card type is secretly placed in the confidential file in the middle of the board. Players must move to a room and then make an accusation against a character saying they did it in that room with a specific weapon. The player to the left must show one of any cards accused to the accuser if in that player's hand. Through deductive reasoning each player must figure out which character, weapon, and location are in the secret file. To do this, each player must uncover what cards are in other players hands by making more and more accusations. Once a player knows what cards the other players are holding they will know what cards are in the secret file. A great game for those who enjoy reasoning and thinking things out.
In this Excel spreadsheet, there are 6 tabs at the bottom. Each tab contains a detective note sheet, with the suspects/weapons/rooms in a different order from all of the other sheets, as well as lots of blank space to write down the details of all players' suggestions. For a game, I print one of each sheet and put them on 6 clipboards for the players. Since the other players are unaware of the order of suspects/weapons/rooms on your sheet, they won't be able to figure out which ones you have eliminated by looking at the area of the paper that you're writing on.
