Hasbro recently unveiled a Star Wars-inspired version of their popular board game Clue, but with a big twist. Instead of the old school murder mystery theme, players of Clue: Star Wars Edition have to figure out how to escape the Death Star.
It’s the Clue game transported to the world of Star Wars. In this game, it’s a period of civil war, and players have managed to sneak onto the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the Death Star! Be the first player to find out which planet Darth Vader plans to destroy next, which room the Death Star plans are hidden in, and which vehicle is the correct escape vehicle. The cards revealing the correct planet, room, and vehicle are placed in the mission folder at the beginning of the game — no one sees what these are until the end. The player who correctly identifies what’s in the folder wins!
Includes 6 Star Wars character pawns, 5-piece cardboard gameboard (bottom level, back wall, 2 supporting walls, top level), mission notepad, die, 6 vehicle tokens, 6 planet tokens, mission folder, 21 Clue cards (red deck), 19 corridor cards (black deck), and game guide.
That’s right: instead of trying to figure out who killed Obi-Wan with the hydrospanner, players will have to find a way to escape the Death Star while also smuggling out the battle station’s plans. As you can see, the actual playing board has changed too—it’s now a 3D recreation of the Death Star’s interior.
