CLUE: Secrets & Spies Game Review
CLUE: Secrets & Spies Edition is actually nothing like the original board game at all. In it, you take on the role of a top international spy (Agent Mustard, Agent Green, Agent Scarlet, etc.); your job is to find the notorious Agent Black.
Hasbro’s just come out with a brand-new version of its popular board game CLUE. The CLUE: Secrets & Spies Edition is actually nothing like the original board game at all. In it, you take on the role of a top international spy (Agent Mustard, Agent Green, Agent Scarlet, etc.); your job is to find the notorious Agent Black, who starts at the top of the scoring chart while you and your fellow players start at the very bottom (you have to start scoring points to work your way up to win the game).
The first cool thing about this game is that no one knows which spy you really are except for you – you get a hidden character card at the beginning of game play that fills you – and you alone – in on this secret. After that, you and your friends have to try and score as many points as possible in order to and until someone finally nabs Agent Black.
In CLUE: Secrets & Spies you score points by completing missions and attending top-secret meetings between various spies. As the game goes on you and the other agents will pick up cool spy stuff like weapons, microchips and diamonds – your mission card will tell you exactly which items you’ll need to advance on the game board and, ultimately, win the whole thing.
Another neat thing about this game is the fact you get to use a cellphone to play – you and the other players will receive text messages on the phone that could give you extra moves or advantages to mix up the fun a little bit. However, you should only expect about six text messages in total while you’re playing the game.
- Great game graphics: Clear plastic pawns, digital numbers and high-tech drawings that look pretty Mission: Impossible.
- Only expect to receive about six text messages on your cellphone throughout the entire game; also, you may keep getting annoying messages after you finish playing.
