Behind the Release
If you have played any of the Clue games, then you know it is a mystery solving game. Clue has several versions of its popular game out on the market. The Waddingtons brought clue into existence; however, Anthony Pratt invented the game. Waddingtons licensed the game to Parker Brothers for sale in the United States in 1949. The premise is simple, solve the mystery of who killed the owner of the mansion, but each version will be different. Each of the players will use dice and pawns to move their characters around the board. They will collect clues and try to solve the mystery. The players move miniature weapon pieces around the board and make suggestions or an accusation based on the information they have acquired. In the Firefly edition, River has been turned over to the Alliance and players have to discover the traitor on the ship.
