Clue fans! If you’re looking for a quick and easy game, download Adventure Escape Mysteries and play their limited-time content based on Hasbro’s classic Clue game. Adventure Escape Mysteries, by Haiku Games, is a collection of online escape games. They have lots of different story lines and themes. I usually play the Detective Kate games, but when I saw the new “special event,” I knew I had to play!
This is an app game, so you’ll have to download it via Apple, Google, or Kindle. This is a limited-time special event, so you’ve only got a week left to play, but that’s plenty of time to solve the mystery of Clue: The Murder of Mr. Black. I took my time and played a chapter a day and finished in three days, but you could finish in a day, if you wanted or needed.
How to play Clue: The Murder of Mr. Black
This is an escape game puzzle (see my Ravensburger Escape Puzzle article for more information about escape games), so you’ll work your way through the story by solving puzzles in the right order. You can collect clues as you go, but the puzzles generally have to be solved in the right order. The Clue Special Event follows the board game faithfully. There’s a big house with lots of rooms and a certain number of suspects and possible weapons they could have used. It’s your job as detective to put the clues together, follow the evidence, and find the killer.
How to win Clue: The Murder of Mr. Black
Just like the board game, you have to determine who killed Mr. Black, using which weapon in which room. Just like escape room games, you have to access the rooms, discover the suspects, and find the weapons by finding clues and tools which guide you through solving a series of puzzles. Once you’ve complete your dossier, you’ll be able to review all the evidence and put your theory together. Can you solve it one go like I did?
This isn’t the Clue game your kids are used to, so if they’re not well-versed in video escape room games, you might want to play this one together. It’s designed as a single-player game, but you could easily cuddle up, share your screen, and solve the mystery together. The game is only available for one more week, so go out and play now!
