Playing a real life version of CLUE is a total riot for any age. All you have to do is hide the weapons and suspects names in a certain amount of rooms. The players go around the house, searching for the hidden weapons and names while taking notice which rooms they are in.
We completely did 2 different versions of the game, one for the kids and one for the adults. Some of the weapons we used with the kids were a feather duster, a paper towel roll, and a shoe lace. The sillier, the better. We did not hide the items too hard. We were a little more authentic with the adults. We actually had a candlestick, revolver -not loaded, and knife.
Both ages had a checklist and went from room to room checking off a weapon, name, and what room they found it in. When the pair thought they knew who, what, and where, they made the big announcement. The big announcement involved a bell and magnifying glass. Very dramatic and fun.
