Get a "Clue!"

My new passion. Since the movie isn't coming out until JULY (argh...) I need to fill my time with other ridiculous things. I bought this on a whim, but it is really fun. It has secret passages, spinning home rooms, and cool evil dudes.

Our first time playing we invited Mia to play, since it was complicated and we were still trying to figure it out. Well, big mistake. By the forth turn she guessed it right and the game was over.
Here are the winning cards: It was Peter Pettigrew, in the Great Hall, with Impentimentia.

And here is Jan laughing about it...

I don't know if I will allow Mia to play anymore. It does say 9 and up, probably so you don't get embarrassed when your five year old beats you.

Clue was my favorite game growing up, but I could only ever get my dad to play with me. :(

It's so strange that you wrote "5 year old." I can't believe that she's already that old! Did she have a good birthday? My mom told me she called and talked to Mia and Julia and Mia said something like "It's SO much fun being 5!" :)

Five year olds are so smart! Remind me not to play Clue with Mia. It's embarrassing enough when I lose to other grownups!

I can't wait to play. We got Clue Jr. the other day at the thrift store. Maybe we'll bring it so we can make Mia think she needs to play with the other kids.

I love the look on Mia's face. She looks totally smug. It reminds me of the time my mom told Kevin he couldn't play Uno, because he didn't know how to play. He talked her into it anyway and won.
