In this edition of the Clue game, players can solve the mystery with the help of the ghost of Mrs. White by using Alexa. (Alexa device sold separately.) Which suspect is responsible for killing Mr. Boddy in his mansion? Investigate who did it, which item they used, and the room where they committed the crime. Roll doubles to summon the ghost of Mrs. White. Just say, "Alexa, ask Mrs. White." If she's in a good mood she might help you advance in the game. But if she's not, she could very well say, "Hah! You thought your day was going well, but that's over now," and will give help to another player instead. This Clue board game, designed for 2 players, is a great choice for family game night. For ages 8 and up.

I had the previous edition of this game that had very similar box art, but no Mrs. White. It was better in almost every way.
The cards, player tokens, and board are all significantly smaller since the previous edition. And the cards seem to be printed on even thinner paper than before. They are going to fall apart in no time.
The previous edition also had a fun page of backstory for each of the characters that they have removed in this one.
I recommend getting the previous edition if you can find it. You can still play with Mrs White if you have Alexa. If you want to play with her, all you need to know is that if you roll doubles, you can guess *any* room you want even if you’re not in it, but you have to ask her how to handle the question instead of the typical rule where the person to the left has to prove you wrong.
The previous edition also had a second deck of cards that let you play with optional extra rules that speed up the game. I didn’t care for that, but it’s been replaced by Mrs. White in this newer edition.
I wish I could pay $15 just for a set of Clue cards that are Bicycle quality. It’s so frustrating to have to keep buying this game repeatedly.
They include cards in the game that allow you to play with the "ghost" without an Alexa device in case you want to play on the go. You can also remove the ghost entirely and just play the classic Clue rules.
You summon her by rolling doubles with the dice. Here are a few ways she can help you:
- "Take a sneak peek at one of the cards in the envelope."
- "Each player who has items you have included in your question will reveal them to you."
Here are a few ways she can wreck your game:
- "Instead, each player must swap their sheet with the player to the right."
- "Instead, swap your hand with the person to your left."
The idea of handing off your private sheet to another player or giving them all the cards in your hand is maddening. It really raises the stakes.
For us, the only big downside has been that it's difficult to use the Mrs. White cards if only 2 people play. The box lists it as a game for 2-6 players, but for 2 people, some of the Mrs. White cards would end the game. Example: if you're told to swap cards with the other player, then you both know what each other has. There isn't much point in finishing.
So to really enjoy the maximum potential Mrs. White offers, you need a group of people. If you can max it out to 6 players, there will be plenty of chaos and challenges to make it a competitive game.
We bought this as a game to play while in quarantine, so I don't know when we'll get to enjoy it with a group and truly enjoy Mrs. White's ghost.
Lastly, I love the ability to play using Alexa, but it's buggy. The music is spooky and makes great ambiance. But after a few minutes, the Alexa skill turns itself off. It doesn't make any sound again until you say, "Alex, ask Mrs. White." So that's unfortunate. But Alexa is not required to play. You can use the included card set instead and get the same results.
We first played this game with my mom and my two sons, ages 11 and 9. I was happy to see that we could just use the Mrs. White cards if we didn’t want to use Alexa (and you don’t have to use Mrs. White at all - you can just play the classic Clue game). We decided to use Alexa when we rolled doubles and we all found ourselves so disappointed when we DIDN’T roll doubles. We LOVED hearing what the ghost of Mrs. White was going to say or have us do, and the sound effects and music just added to the fun of the game.
We all concluded (even my mom!) that we absolutely loved the Alexa integration. Typically I find that technology just ruins classic games but this really does enhance the game and brings an extra element of fun to it. The best part is that the game is completely playable without it, so you have the choice to add it or not.
Now I’m hoping more games come out that are Alexa compatible!
