IDW Comics brings you a new issue of a murder mystery, detective feel and a distant board game of a comic of CLUE on its first issue.

You guys may know about the old board game where you can actually find someone who murdered a person in the game and solve mysteries until you’ll find who’s the killer. I do know and play some board games from my childhood, but not for this one because what I know is that the players have to move from room to room to find clues, make an accusation and reveals the murderer. And that game was over 60 years ago, and people still played it.

Board games are all usually cardboard and plastic, but board games can take you into a great experience because unlike any other games like trading cards, or video games, board games would provide such a strategy in order to win. Games like Trouble, Chess, Guess Who, Scramble, or any other board game that provides some strategy, and this game went overtime, and finally, the board game gets a story to a comic book.

The story starts where the guests were invited for tonight’s dinner however, the story can be menacing regarding of what it’s about a murder-mystery because the friggin’ Butler is narrating this goddamn story which he still thinks that they’re in a board game. It’s odd to know that this story is based on a board game, there are so many witnesses who actually found what they’re dealing with this kind of threat of this story. While every one of the guests was enjoying themselves, something horrible happened, the senator is murdered by someone in the mansion. While the other guests were going on about the murderer, there’s a slight chance that the police will know who the murder in this mansion really is.

To be frank, I’m really surprised that of all comics that I’ve read, CLUE is making a story of the whole series based on a single board game. The funny thing is that reading this whole story is actually making someone to play a game, however, the murderer is still one the loose and someone needs to find the murderer. This story is amazing to witness the story from a board game, and this is one of the first stories that I’ve ever read. While the butler is narrating and all the other guests are scratching their heads to find some clues to the murderer, it’s a great read. I would recommend anyone who loves board games including this one, read this story and you’ll see what am I talking about.
