I am not sure if this is the first copyright of the game of Clue, but I have never seen one from 1949 before.
Love the artwork and it's in fabulous condition! I am assuming this was hardly played with at all, the pieces are still there and nothing is crumpled, bent or torn. The one thing I miss is the Prof's pipe, this version he is tobacco free.
...And it was obviously the Dining Room and the candlestick.....The pieces are wooden- just love that feature! Also the weapons are larger than the modern versions and we believe the lead pipe is made from real lead-sorry children no chewing.
We always fought over who got to be Miss Scarlett, love the 1940's hairstyle she has in this version. I always pictured Miss Scarlett in the lounge enjoying her red carpet, or looking for her lost necklace in the ballroom.
In my excitement of playing with our "new" game, I made several suggestions when I had all the cards.....no wonder I didn't win.
Now you have to give me three clues, what edition of Clue do you have, who is your favorite character and what is your favorite room?
