Sorry if a list like this has been done. What games out there use a gadjet or mechanism (if the game needs it or not)?
Feel free to add more!

Still a pretty fun game for a light filler. Always fun when the thief 'gets away' and you have to listen to the five or six clues and try to figure out which street he ran down!

Came out around the same time as Stop Thief. Found this at a garage sale recently. I wonder what the guys who invented these electronic gizmos were thinking?

The voting wheels may be comparatively low tech, but I think they could still be described as "gadgets."

The gavel that sorted player votes was a gadget. Players placed marbles in the gavel (green for yes, red for no), shook it up, and turned it upside down to see which color was exposed. Too bad Florida didn't have a similar mechanism for counting votes back in 2000.

Two gadgets in fact: the "crime computer" stands in for special dice to regulate movement and other game functions while the "clue scanner" holds clue cards which a player tests by poking a special indicator into its holes.

This list can't be complete without one of the newer ones - EBAY. The game isn't that bad. Granted, it's not a gamer's game, and there is luck involved. But if you want an fun game that's easy to learn that almost any age can play, this is the one. Especially since KayBee and Toys R Us sell it for as low as $4.99!
