New online skill game duplicates the thrills of Hasbro's "Clue" board game
Internet skill gaming website WorldWinner.com has launched its latest game, a cash game version of Hasbro's classic mystery game in the whodunnit genre, 'Clue'.
To crack the case in "Clue Mystery Match!", players match identical cards in three separate rounds to identify the murder weapon, location and perpetrator of the crime through a process of elimination. Was it Mrs. Peacock in the study with a lead pipe? All of Clue's classic characters make a cameo appearance in the online version of the game.
"Between the list of suspects, crime locations and murderous weapons, Clue has kept generations of game lovers guessing," said Peter Blacklow, president of WorldWinner. "Now, we've taken the game of deductive reasoning and added a skill-based, memory-challenging twist where online players can challenge one another to achieve high scores and win cash prizes. Given our players' enthusiasm for previously adapted Hasbro titles, we're confident WorldWinner players are up for the Clue Mystery Match! challenge."
The game is essentially a memory test where players uncover one element of the murder mystery in each round of match making. The one remaining unmatched card at the end of each round leads players to the murder weapon, location and suspect. When a match of two cards is removed from the board, players have the added challenge of the "gravity affect" where remaining cards collapse in to the now open spaces.
Players score points for making matches, as well as a time bonus based on how quickly all matches are made.
"Clue Mystery Match" joins a stable of online skill games developed from Hasbro games and offered by WW, including Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, and Scrabble. New Internet skill games currently being developed from Hasbro licensed products, include Twister! and Battleship.
