Playing Clue Suspects
Clue Suspects is an out of print one player version of the original Clue board game. The goal of the game Clue Suspects is the same as in the original board game, to deduce who the murderer is. The game was published in 2006 by Winning Moves Games USA.
Clue Suspects isn't really a board game. It's more of a card game combined with a puzzle to solve. It's important to understand that this is a solitaire game; it has no options for playing with more than one player.
How to Play Clue Suspects - Rules & Instructions
In the original board game Clue, the players spend most of their time gathering clues. In Clue Suspects, the clues have already been gathered and written on cards. The Clue Suspects rules are actually pretty simple. The player draws a card and reads the clues. The Clue Suspects instructions specify that the player then has to put the body token in the room where the clues indicated. She also puts the other suspects and pieces in the rooms.
Each of the 60 cards represents a single puzzle. Once you've finished solving the puzzle on each of the 60 cards, you've done all the puzzles.
The suspects in the Clue Suspects game have increased in number from the original game. They include the original six suspects and five new suspects.

Clue Suspects Review
Clue Suspects is okay, but I'm not sure it's a worthy successor to the original board game. I think it offers the most value to children in the age ten to fourteen range as a puzzle. Kids today play too many video games; even if you can get them to solve a few puzzles for a few hours, it's worth doing. If you solve four puzzles per hour, Clue Suspects represents a solid 15 hours of entertainment. That's not a huge value, considering that other board games, including the original Clue game, have almost unlimited replay value.
