From The Manufacturer

The classic mystery board game has an aristocratic twist as it features characters and themes from the award-winning masterpiece television series, Downton Abbey. While at a Crawley family dinner party Mr. Carson realizes something was stolen and he needs help solving the mystery. It’s an exciting strategy board game for 2 to 6 players, or to play in teams. Players ask questions about who did the crime, what object was stolen, and where it was hidden. Did lady Mary steal lady edith’s typewriter and hide it in the dining room? Perhaps Tom Branson stole the Countess’ Telephone and hid it in the pantry. Players mark their pads and narrow down the possibilities as other players show their cards. Ready for an accusation? Check Mr. Carson’s envelope to see if it’s correct to win the game.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Step into the 20th century and attend a dinner party with the cast of Downton Abbey. Hasbro took the classic game of Clue and twisted it. Instead of a murder, players figure out what was stolen from the house, from which room it was stolen, and who stole it.
This Clue is inspired by Downton Abbey, and it features the main characters. In Clue Downton Abbey, players must accuse which character stole a valuable object in the game, and the stolen item can be a typewriter, a telephone, a bow tie, a pocket watch, or a Lavender loaf.
Was it the Dowager Countess in the library with the rat poison? Or was it Tom Branson in the Great Hall with the bar of soap? Murder is everywhere at Downton Abbey — or at least in the rooms designated on our homemade Downton Abbey Clue board.
The new aristocratic twist on the classic game sees Mr. Carson helping to solve a mystery after a valuable object has been stolen during a Crawley family dinner party. Featuring characters from the show, it’s described as “a suspenseful game of whodunit,” with tokens inspired by iconic Downton Abbey items.
