Games and Gaming: Classic Games

What are Classic Games?

When we say classic games we're referring to older American board games, or American Style Board Games, such as Monopoly or Clue, that are typically straightforward and feature some luck, and player conflict/elimination. 

Featured Game

Clue

# of Players: 3 – 6

Play time: 45 minutes

 

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.
