How to Play Clue Board Game and How to play 2 Player Version CLUEDO RULES!

Hi, welcome to GameFluent! Today on GameFluent: Clue! You guys have been asking for it. You saw me do Monopoly and everybody wanted to learn how to play Clue! So let me go pver Clue for you. It’s a fun game. It’s been around for a while. You probably found these on your parents or your grandmother’s bookshelf and wanted to learn how to play. It’s super simple game but it takes a little bit of a deductive logic to solve it and win but once you get the knack of the game it’s kind of fun how you go through to figure out who done it. In a nutshell, the game is a murder mystery. Mr. Boody was murdered in his mansion and you need to figure out who did it. The game consists of six players you of course don’t need six players to play you can play with at least three players but so three to six players.Each one of the players gets a player token. There are six weapons there’s the knife and the candlestick and some other weapons and then of course there’s the rooms in the in a mansion itself. The objective of the game is to figure out who done it so who it was where it was and with what weapon so basically you need to determine which one of the six players it was. Was it Mr. Green? Was it Colonel Mustard? Was it Mrs. White? Was it done in the library? the Conservatory? the billiard room? and with what weapon? which one of the six weapons was used the candle stick the knife the lead pipe all of these things are represented on the board obviously the rooms the weapons with the small player pieces the players are represented by the small movable token so that the bright blue mrs. peacock the green mr. green player the white mrs. white and so on so set the game up put each one of the players on their respective start square start this is why it gets the white token find the dye put the six up weapons in six various rooms on the board sort out the suspects from the rooms and the weapons shuffle each one of these together and then draw a suspect a room and a weapon this is what we need to determine in the game this is what everyone’s trying to figure out this no one sees and it gets hidden in the confidential file and remains on the middle of the board for the entire duration to play wherever we can see it no what’s cheating no one’s looking at it the rest of the clues get shuffled together and sort it out to the other players so say there’s three of us playing I can stack and the other two players get sex once you’ve distributed the cards to everyone give everyone a notebook off the stack everyone gets a detective notebook so chair these off and then fold it in half and then write down of course I’m going to do it so you can see it on camera but break down what you got in your hand here so I’ve got mr. green I’ve got the rope I’ve got the kitchen I’ve got the dining room I got professor plum and I’ve got the revolver of course you won’t do this right on top of the board you’ll do this in secret you’ll do this so no one can see okay so you’ll keep this secret you’ll keep these secret the other players will do the same with their cards and now the game begins now the fun of the game is trying to figure out what cards the other players are holding by moving your piece around moving other pieces around on the board so that you can make a suggestion through the course of the game you’re going to make suggestions of mrs. peacock in the conservatory with the revolver or maybe you’ll suggest mr. green in the billiard room with the candlestick now in order to make those suggestions you take turns moving your piece into the various rooms and then you can make a suggestion who you think committed the crime based on what room you’re in so you roll a great role one two but any other players will go it’s my turn again I’ll roll 1 i’ll make a lot of headway here for i’m heading for the ballroom it looks like but you already have the ballroom no i’m not sure about the ballroom so maybe that would be my first suggestion i don’t know i’m not holding the ballroom card one of these guys might be or it might be in the confidential file so again on my turn one is going to take me six rolls to get into the ballroom at this point i can say hmm let’s see here maybe let’s work on Colonel Mustard in the ballroom with nice okay so I’ll say all right I’d like to make a suggestion I think it was I suggest that the crime was committed by Colonel Mustard in the ballroom with the knife now I don’t have any of those cards the player to my left looks at his cards and says hmm let’s see what am I going to show him well boy that’s a pretty good suggestion I don’t have any of those cards so play moves further to the left around the table but the player three looks in his hands find something that I suggest suggested shows me and only me and then put this cards down I got an answer I know it wasn’t the knife so i’ll write in my little detective notebook nope not the knife I keep that secret from him so player 3 and I know it wasn’t the knife because he’s got that in his hand alright so that was my suggestion my turn and the other players move trying to move into a room we make a suggestion of their own if you want to make another suggestion about maybe a different player or different weapon but in the same room you literally need to move your player out during one turn and then roll the dice to move your player in on the next turn and then you can make another suggestion about that room with the same player or maybe a different weapon one thing to note though every time i say this note that i’m saying suggestion because you can make a suggestion on every turn in clue once you think you know who did it you got this narrow down to one suspect that you haven’t seen one weapon that you haven’t seen and one room you haven’t seen they’re not checked off so you’ve got a pretty good idea of what’s in that envelope if you want to at any time during your turn you can make an accusation deactivation it’s just like a suggestion you can say all i think it was professor plum with the revolver in the billiard room but because you’re making an accusation if you’re wrong when you look in the confidential file you lose you get to make one accusation in this game if you make an accusation and you’re wrong when you look at what’s in the confidential file you’re out you lose well you’re not out because you need to be available to show the other players on a single card at a time when they when they make a suggestion so make sure you know what’s in that confidential file before you accuse otherwise you’re just making suggestions and everyone takes turns making suggestions until the mad dash for when everyone’s seen all the but three cards and then everyone knows who done it where they done it and with what weapon in moving your feet so you can move on the tile squares up back left right you cannot move diagonally you can’t ever go diagonally and if there’s a player blocking your piece you need to go around them so if there’s a player blocking a door you won’t be able to enter that room through that door you’ll need to go around to another one of the doors if the if you’re in a room and the door is blocked by a player you can’t get out of the room you can’t move their piece you can’t land on their piece that’s an illegal move so but the one nice thing about the corner rooms is they all have secret passageways so you can announce I’m going to use the secret passageway and the secret passageways just go to the diagonal corner of the other of the board so you can say i’m going to use the secret passageway to the lounge and put your piece in the lounge or if you’re in a kitchen you can move from the kitchen over the opposite corner and move your player into the study how much does yeah like to use is not necessarily guessing three things that are suggesting three things that you don’t know maybe sprinkle in something you already know so maybe suggest professor plum with the knife in the hall and so that way you can force you know you know that these cards already exist you know you don’t want to see them you know they’re already there so you don’t have to go and just make a suggestion of three unknowns each time maybe sprinkle in a couple of knowns and that way you can force someone to in this case show you the hall card you know you’ll know that those other cards are already out there so don’t always just make suggestions of things that you’re trying to find out and in that way you can also sort of throw up or even better yet as a regular practice I’ve got the professor plum card so why wouldn’t I just say well I suggest professor plum in the ballroom with the candlestick and that way it throws people off because people think wow John’s looking for professor plum he couldn’t possibly hold the card and so by suggesting professor plum I’m kind of throwing off my opponents because they’re wondering why I’m suggesting professor plum they wouldn’t think of actually holding the card so maybe that’ll put them on some wild goose chase that they think professor plums in the envelope when in fact he’s in my hand they’ll never think to ask for him because I’m not asking for them so little tricks like that is what makes cool a lot of fun a couple of years ago Hasbro came out with a two pointer version of a clue that you can play traditionally clue is a three to six player game you can actually play with two players here’s the trick as you’re dealing out the cards deal out all but four cards deal out the rest of the cards between the two players these four cards make the third player so you’ll put those out on the third play and you’ll have half the cards your opponent will have half the cards the difference is is that if you move into a room and make a suggestion for whom I to committed the murder your player look at his cards and if he can’t show you a card that you just suggested at that point you can take a look at one of the extra cards so slowly one suggestion at a time you are moving through progressing through the first car the second car the third car the fourth card and slowly figuring out what cards are in the mystery player and so basically you can have a fun game of Clue between the two of you you both have a lot of cards so you both actually have quite a few clues in your notebook to begin with but it’s a matter of figuring out what those four cards are and then making your actions pation and seeing if you solve the mystery of what’s in the confidential case file so that’s clue I don’t think I’ve fun playing if you have any questions that things that I overlooked or didn’t explain it very well leave me a comment below and thanks for watching

Thank you! I will be playing this on family game night!

Kem Modal Insan · November 15, 2017 at 9:46 am

thank for teaching

Robert Clark · December 20, 2017 at 12:14 pm

What is the point of moving around the board just to go into a room to make a suggestion?

Robert Clark · March 10, 2018 at 11:57 pm

I need you to answer a very important game play question not actually covered in the rules….

Robert Clark · March 18, 2018 at 10:57 pm

Clue master detective is a bigger game with many more cards. How about a 2 player rule for that version???

Leila Torres · March 21, 2018 at 12:10 am

Thank you so much! Sooooo helpful!

norah haque · March 27, 2018 at 9:33 pm

So when you make a suggestion, do you move the suggested character's pawn into your room? Then does that person who owns that character play from that room on his/her next turn?

Varun Rajendran · June 27, 2018 at 11:43 am

Say I make an accusation and I no one proves me wrong. Then the player left of me rolls the dice right?

Hussein Alyaseen · June 27, 2018 at 12:04 pm

Thank you very much, it was useful

MarSweet · July 31, 2018 at 9:42 pm

I was playing the online version and only allow to one player show cards…is the same with all the real games???

Roland Oldengarm · August 26, 2018 at 4:54 am

Thank you so much for the 2 player rules! I've played this game for ages, never with 2 players though.

Joe Francis Papa · October 16, 2018 at 11:34 am

Raised my eyebrow at the "super simple game" remark. Haha! Sorry for being clueless.

Ronald Rose · November 2, 2018 at 3:54 pm

1. When we use super passage then do we get to make suggestions immediately?
Say when we enter lounge we make a suggestion. Then in nect turn we go to Conservatory. Can we make a suggestion there immediately?
2. Can we use the closed doors also to get in and get out?

Myah Yancey · November 15, 2018 at 6:52 pm

Wonderful tutorial!🤗

MIZIUPA · December 25, 2018 at 7:57 pm

Thank you!!! This was by far the most accurate one! And I have been watching other videos but this one is the best one! Thanks!

NOT MY EYEBALL GAMES · December 29, 2018 at 1:31 pm

There is no need to role and move in Clue. Just move your pawn from room to adjacent room.

Zack & Sunny bros Inc · January 1, 2019 at 12:46 am

So simply and well explained. Thankyou so much

FaZe Gummybear · January 7, 2019 at 9:50 pm

Thx it really helped me learn how to play

Døminic Nelsøn · January 24, 2019 at 12:25 am

Thanks this helps sooooo much!!!!

drea Benson · March 1, 2019 at 6:30 pm

2play rules @11:00 yall welcome

Haydo Mo106 · March 16, 2019 at 12:36 pm

So you put each weapon in a different room… let’s say the rope is in the kitchen,
I know I have to say the kitchen since that is the room I’m in. But do I need to say the rope? (I just play where we put all the weapons in the centre room. And can pick any weapon in any room)

Frantastic Jxn · April 14, 2019 at 4:02 am

I enjoyed

Margaret · April 28, 2019 at 2:40 am

Very clear explanation of the rules–thank you!

JULIO MENDOZA · July 14, 2019 at 1:44 am

That was really well said. Easy and straight forward

Srishti Shetty · July 24, 2019 at 8:42 am

Can I move any other Character into a room for a suggestion, which is being used/moved by another player?

Barnacles · July 28, 2019 at 12:34 am

There are some important strategy pointers that are not covered in this 12 minute video. One of which is that while it is helpful to mark an X to show your cards and the cards you are shown it is even better to use a separate column for each player so that you know who showed you a particular card. It's also helpful to use a different mark, like an O or – when someone cannot show you cards during a suggestion. This can lead to you deducing the suspect, weapon and room faster than other players.

André Pedras · August 27, 2019 at 8:47 pm

Great video. Love the game. Thank you for the good content. Cheers.

Love myself · September 15, 2019 at 12:59 am
