Clue Board Game History
Clue was originally published in the United Kingdom in the late 1940's; however, the name was called Cluedo. The name wasn't changed to Clue until the game was released in North America. It was developed by a solicitorís clerk from England named Anthony Pratt. It is now published by Hasbro, a United States toy company.
A few highlights in the history of Clue:
Supposedly, Pratt had spent quite a few years developing and perfecting Cluedo before meeting with Norman Watson, the marketing director for Waddington's Games. Also present at the first meeting was the Bull family who had designed the game Buccaneer, which was a popular game at the time.
Because of World War II, the game company had a difficult time finding material to manufacture parts for the original Cluedo game, so the actual launch was postponed from 1947 until 1949.
Today, the legacy of Clue continues beyond the edges of the board game. The following are just a few of the many products that have spun off of the original Cluedo game:
