Clue Dungeons & Dragons is a board game was made in 2001. It was produced by Hasbro shortly after their purchase of Wizards of the Coast, owners of the Dungeons & Dragons license. The game contains artwork in the Dungeons & Dragons style. The character positions of the cover are in the style of the 1996 version.

Development[edit]

Bill Slavicsek created the rules, scenario, and a sketch of the game board.[1]

Overview[edit]

Six heroes visit the Archmage of Korinon in his castle. A doppelganger has taken the form of one of the suspects and killed the Archmage. This triggers a spell, which seals his castle with the suspects and assorted monsters inside until the doppelganger is revealed, along with the location of the murder and the weapons.

Gameplay[edit]

The game can be played in the classic Clue fashion, or the monster cards can be introduced for added fun. A battle with a monster can result in such benefits as an extra turn or a peek at an opponent's card. If the player loses the battle, however, he will be taken to the maze at the center of the board until he wins freedom by rolling a specific number.

Suspects[edit]

All the characters are iconic figures from the player's handbook. [2]

The Monsters[edit]

Each monster in the game gives you an item when you defeat it. If you fail to defeat the monster, you are trapped in the center maze until you roll a five or a six.
