Nice idea but poorly implemented
on 16 January 2013
This was a present to twin 11 year old girls. It was extremely exciting and welcome until they opened the box!
There is a lot of preparation popping out cardboard discs and assembling wheels that frankly at this price should have been made of something more durable than cardboard. There are no containers for the various sets of cards, or the cardboard counters or anything else for that matter, so everything runs around the main box. Chances are pretty good most will be down the back of the sofa before too long. This game is expensive as board games go and I was really disappointed in the cheapness of the whole thing. The instructions are comprehensive enough but still complex especially if you don't know the rules of normal Cluedo.
The only thing that may make the children go back to it will be the HP theme (they are huge fans) but frankly I don't think they will bother.
If you have a chance - go and see this product in the flesh before buying - that way you will know what you are getting for your money. Had I done so I definitely would not have spent the money.
