NEW (1/May/08): Depressing that the first update I've done to the website for so long is to have to remove the guestbook feature - both the old books (which were 10 years old anyway) and the current book (due to misuse). Sorry to those people who would like to use the guestbook for what it was designed to be; and sorry to those who used it for what it wasn't designed to be - but I'm sure you'll find a different route to get what you want, that won't result in me getting sued!
As for a "real" update - I still live in hopes that I'll find the time and energy needed some time soon (on the plus side, it's because good things are happening in my life that's keeping me away!) While I'm here though, I'll fill you in on the latest gossip: "Real Arcade is Beta testing a PC game Clue Classic. Which is a transliteration of the 2003 north American board game version." [Thanks Tank for the info]
And also there are rumours of a new Clue movie! Check out This Link [Thanks to Marty Fairgrieve].

NEW (08/Sep/07): Happy Birthday to Cluedofan, Happy Birthday to Cluedofan, Happy Birthday dear Cluedofan, Happy Birthday to Cluedofaaaaaan! This website is 10 years old today. Wow, where did the time go? Alas, I was held hostage by an unknown person (but I've narrowed it down to six) and held at XXX-point in a certain room of a big house, thus preventing me from finishing the big update I had planned for today. Well, that's what I told Inspector Grey and I'm sticking to it! This site will get some changes soon (hopefully some big ones) so please keep sticking with me! A HUGE thanks to all those people who have been visiting this site over the last 10 years - it always amazes me when I look at the statistics for this site how people love Clue(do) in so many countries in ever corner of the globe. Anthony E. Pratt made a magical game back in the 40s that people still love and enjoy to this day. So, to celebrate Cluedofan.com's 10th anniversary, please get 5 friends around to your house, lift a certain game down off the shelf and have a few games! Hey, why not take a picture of it and send it to me and I'll put it on the website! [When life allows *ahem*]

NEW (11/Jun/07): Hi All! I'm back from spending most of the year so far touring a play around Italy; and am hoping to start some overdue updates soon. If you have any requests for what I should do first, then drop me a line. Also, if you see things missing from the Merchandise pages, please let me know - I already know I need to add Cluedo Vintage Bookshelf Edition (UK) / Library Clue Game Set (USA), Clue: Suspects (aka Cluedo: Brainteaser/Rätselfälle/Breinbreker) and the Clue: Confidential LCD game [Why hasn't that appeared in the shops yet?]. So keep an eye on the website as I hope to have new stuff soon. PLEASE NOTE: I have a HUGE backlog of emails to get through, so I'm very sorry if it takes me a while to get to yours.

Also, Australians and New Zealanders may be interested to know that when I put the UK DVD into my computer, it said it was encoded for Region 4 players as well as Region 2 (Europe) - so I "think" that the DVD will work in Region 4 players. Lastly, I'm pulling together a load of screen captures and more for the game to add to the site in the next few days - so come back soon!
NEW 2:
Rula Lenska (Mrs. Peacock Cluedo Series 2) is a member of this year's Celebrity Big Brother house! Check out Channel 4 and E4 for the next 3 weeks...
NEW 3: Kevin Elyot's new adaptation of Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None" ends its West End run on 14th January! I saw it last night and enjoyed it greatly. I thought the set and music were great - but wasn't a great fan of Vera or Wargrave. I also thought that the production lacked some of the suspense it could have had. I'd still recommend fans to check it out quickly though. Tickets start at £12.50.
NEW 4: Keir Shiels has noted that despite Cambridge Arts Theatre being on the list of venues for the Cluedo (The Play) Tour it isn't in their brochure or on their website. Hopefully this isn't a bad sign that the tour might not happen... I shall try to get more information...

Also hot off the presses is that Christopher Biggins will be reprising his role of Reverend Green in a new production of Robert Duncan's stage adaptation of Cluedo. Another British stalwart actress - Liza Goddard will be taking on the mantle of Mrs. Peacock but the other roles are still to be announced (I'm desperately trying to get in it as Sergeant Rose...)

I have updated the Mrs. White page with Pam Ferris' year of birth [thanks to Noah Whitford] and made reference to her appearance in "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" as well as Liz Smith's current appearance in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory".
Lastly, I've added Noah's new Cluedo themed murder mystery Cluedo: Last Train from Paris to the Links section.

2) I have split the four series from being one big page, into four sub pages, linked to from the UK Cluedo TV Series page. Check out the funky suspect cards at the top of Series 3 - I hope to do this for all the series. Actually, my aim is that one day every episode will have it's own page - I've started work on a layout and you'll probably see it in 2010!

NEW (27/Jan/05): As part of an early spring clean, I've split the Boardgames up so that each sub-section has it's own page. This should speed up the loading of the page and use less of my bandwidth. Similarly, this home page has been chopped down as a lot of it was just a repeat of the nav bar (the menus to the left of this page). I've removed the banner that advertised the International Page and the Links section has been moved to it's own page.

NEW (20/Dec/04): Some holiday presents for you all:

It has the most extensive "official" backgrounds ever given on the characters, especially Black / Boddy, Rusty's full name and occupation, and a nice link to Cluedo 2000 - it's just a shame they don't know the year in which WW1 started! [Thanks Jaime for the scoop]

NEW (03/Sept/04): Fixed a couple of bugs with the Pairs Game. Can you beat the 100 second barrier?

I know, it's strange the BBC are releasing ITV programmes, but apparently they are releasing other ITV shows as well like "Spitting Image".

He is also developing a new Clue-based game comprised of fifty Clue mysteries for Hasbro." - I'm a big fan of Hy Conrad's as I used to read his mysteries on TheCase.com and have a couple of his books (see Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com) so hopefully this should be good if it comes off.

NEW (01/June/04): News: Herbert tells us that Hasbro told him that Cluedo FX will be released in the UK in Autumn / Winter 2004. Also, watch out for a heavily made-up Pam Ferris (Mrs. White UK Series 3) as "Aunt Marge" in "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban".

NEW (01/Feb/04): NEWS: Thanks to Lee Walker, "cageandaquarium" and Jérôme Viot for telling me that the standard Cluedo editions in the UK and France (and thus probably the rest of Europe) have been changed to the same style as Clue 2003 (with just the word Clue changed to Cluedo) !! I had an inkling this may happen as Clue 2003 merged some plot details from both sides of the pond (e.g. saying that Mr. Green was aka Reverend Green). Fingers firmly crossed that we get Clue FX next!

NEW (16/4/01 Again!): Bah! I've just discovered that YahooGeocities changed their guestbook system - meaning that the "Sign" link didn't work. I've now migrated to the new system, so you can now add a comment if you want to.

NEW (1/4/01): I'M BACK!! Apologies for the lack of updates; but I'm now back - with a HUGE list of updates to do over the next few days - so keep coming back! For today, I've finally put up the results for the last lot of Clip Votes so as to not keep you waiting any longer. I will be putting the choices for the next lot up tomorrow (psst! The movie vote will be for the best Wadsworth clips!) Also for now, I've added a little surprise for anyone who bookmarks this page in Internet Explorer (though I'm a Netscape man...) and a link to the fab new Games.com - which is the first website where you can play Clue(do) online (at last!) See you all tomorrow :o)
NEW (11/2/01): Huge apologies for the lack of updates. I'm currently swamped directing and producing a production of Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None" which will be on at the end of March. Normal service will resume here as soon as that is out of the way. PLEASE NOTE: The forms on clip vote (and possibly at the end of the mysteries) are playing up. I am in contact with Yahoo Geocities to find out what's going wrong. If you have any feed back, please contact me (Thanks to Damian for letting me know). I've also updated the link to Foul Play.
