This is the same as the basic Clue game, but with more of everything.
Was it Madame Rose in the Carriage House with the Poison? Monsieur Brunette in the Trophy Room with the Horseshoe? Or was it our old friend Colonel Mustard whodunit in the Library with his trusty service Revolver?
You’ll need your sharpest detective skills to solve the ever-changing CLUE MASTER DETECTIVE mystery, because in this expanded version of our classic game of detection, there are more rooms, more weapons, more suspects — more mayhem!
The late Mr. Boddy’s country manor has a total of twelve possible Murder Locations, both outdoors and indoors, with secret passages, plus new “Snoop Spaces” that let you broaden your investigation. A vial of Poison and a Horseshoe bring the number of Weapons up to eight. And the devious bunch of Supsects has grown to ten with the addition of Miss Peach, Monsieur Brunette, Madame Rose and Sergeant Gray.
With all these additional people, places and things to unravel, your most expert powers of interrogation and deduction will be called into play.
So shuffle the Suspect, Weapon and Murder Location cards, slip one of each into the Confidential Case File envelope — and start sleuthing!
Turn by turn you probe, collecting evidence and pinpointing certain culprits, means, and rooms. Then, when you think you’ve got it, make your accusation: Whodunit? Where? With which weapon?

How to Play?
Mr. Boddy of Boddy Manor has met with grave misfortune: He’s been murdered by a person unknown, somewhere in or around the manor house, with an asyet-undetermined weapon. It’s up to you, the CLUE MASTER DETECTIVE player, to determine Whodunit? Where? With what weapon? Even if you’re a veteran clue-finder, you’ll have to exercise your “little grey cells” to solve each CLUE MASTER DETECTIVE mystery, because now there are 10 possible perpetrators, 12 possible scenes of the crime, and 8 possible weapons. So put away your violin, put on your deerstalker hat, fill your meerschaum pipe, and start sleuthing! If you’re a master detective, the solution will be elementary!
Aside from its additional Suspects, Locations, and Weapons, the CLUE MASTER DETECTIVE game includes a feature not found in the classic CLUE game. It’s the “Snoop Spaces”–those squares marked with a spyglass on the board. Your objective is to move around Mr. Boddy’s manor, going in and out of the 12 possible murder Locations. Each time you enter a room or an outside location, you may “Make a Suggestion” and gather valuable information about what cards are in your opponents’ hands. When you have figured out what cards each of the other players holds in his or her hand, and knowing what’s in your own hand, you can deduce which three cards are in the Case File by process of elimination.
Remember: To make a Suggestion, you must be in the Location you name. To make an Accusation, you may name any Location without actually being in that place.
Winning: The first player who correctly names all three cards in the Case File envelope wins, and lays the cards face up on the table as proof.
