Clue is the original board game of mystery and intrigue as you try to solve a crime. Everyone is a suspect and every turn is an opportunity to uncover another clue. With these special editions of Clue you can solve a mystery in almost any fictional universe. The Game of Thrones edition comes with a double-sided board that allows for great replay value. In the Big Bang Theory version of Clue you help Sheldon uncover which of the other characters is messing with his stuff. The Star Wars collector's edition has you run around the Death Star looking for secret plans and ultimately a way to escape. There are now quite a few ways to play the classic game of Clue.

The Harry Potter edition has you looking for a student that has mysteriously disappeared from Hogwarts. This differs from the original because the players are not actually the suspects but you still have to accurately guess the culprit. In The Legend of Zelda collector's edition, the players must determine which of their characters has the ability to defeat Ganondorf and what magical item they must use to do it. The game board and rules change with each unique edition of Clue. You will most likely find that the rooms are from key scenes or sets from your favorite TV show or video game.
