Earlier this week Hasbro announced in a press release that its newest version of the iconic mystery game CLUE will take on an international (and 21st century) twist.
CLUE: Secrets & Spies will take players on a globetrotting adventure to foil the plans of the (are you ready for this) Criminal League for Ultimate Espionage (C.L.U.E.). And it gets better. The game will feature an optional text messaging feature that transmits game shaping intelligence to Agents Plum, Scarlet, Mustard, and the others while an ultraviolet, secret decoder reveals hidden missions to the players. The agent who completes the most missions before being discovered by Agent Black will be known as the world’s number one spy and will win the game.
“The use of text messaging to enhance a traditional board game experience is a true innovation in the board game category and we are thrilled to pioneer this experience with Hasbro’s Clue brand,” said Jill Hambley, Global Marketing Vice President of the Clue brand at Hasbro. It should be noted that standard text messaging rates apply for players who elect to use the game’s optional text messaging feature (cell phone, of course, not included), and Hasbro is committed to maintaining text messaging support through December 31, 2011.
CLUE: Secrets & Spies is expected to be available this fall. The image was provided by Hasbro but may not be the final artwork for the game when released.
