Cluedo - The London Edition-Review

Murder comes to the Capital for the first time ever as Winning Moves, the innovative games company behind many classic family favourites, unveils Cluedo: London Edition. The popular country house whodunit classic has been given an urban make-over and relocated to London, axing original characters such as Miss Scarlett and Mrs Peacock and replacing them with Malcolm Mustard the Mayor, Paul Plum the Journalist and Gus Green the Footballer.

The game also features new London-themed murder scenes – St Paul’s Cathedral, Soho, Tower Bridge, Covent Garden, Heathrow, Wembley, The Houses of Parliament, Knightsbridge and Canary Wharf – and boasts a brand new ‘media mogul’ victim instead of the traditional millionaire. In a nod to the nostalgia of the original game, traditional Cluedo murder weapons have been kept the same: the candlestick, dagger, lead piping, revolver, rope and wrench.

With over 300 possible murder combinations in the new game, Cluedo: London Edition guarantees hours of fun for all the family this Christmas.

Cluedo: London Edition (RRP £24.99, ages 9+, 3-6 players) is available to buy now on the High Street from a wide range of retailers and from the stockist Winning Moves
