Cluedo & Clue Junior Boardgames

Junior Cluedo:

This was a more basic version of original game, with child versions of the characters (e.g. Wendy White and Mustard the dog).
Instead of having to uncover a murder, you now had to find the treasure hidden in one of the rooms while avoiding ghosts and spiders.

Cluedo Junior Detective:

This kids version of Cluedo involves a bit more sleuthing than Junior Cluedo as players have to move around locations to reveal magnifying glass clues to work out which two items Watson has hidden in his kennel!
There are EIGHT playing pieces (Black and Peach are added) and the blurb goes:
"Watson, Inspector Cluedo's bloodhound, has hidden some items around the Detective Academy. Choose a character from the Inspector's eight nieces and nephews; Jake Plum, Natalie Peacock, Jessica Scarlett, Spike Mustard, Robbie Green, Tom Black, Megan White and Beth Peach. Help them to find the items and become Junior Detectives!"

The locations are 9 cards that you place in a grid (plus a tenth start card) and are: Main Gate, Shed, Swimming Pool, Terrace, Stables, Grand Hallway, Staircase, Boat House and Conservatory.

Clue Jr. Travel Game:

Which Child is hiding in Which Room with Which Pet? This portable case contains everything junior detectives need to solve the mystery. Place the clue-filled mystery cards under the case lid, and play the mystery on the top card. Start by moving around the house until you land in a keyhole. Now use your mover like a key to open the door and reveal the clue hidden underneath. Cross off that clue on your notepad - but don't let anyone else see what you saw! When you've visited all the rooms and crossed off everything you've seen, you'll know Which Child, Which Room and Which Pet you didn't see. And that's the solution to the mystery!
