Escape To Mr Black's Mansion This Halloween

This Halloween will feature the return of a family favourite as the classic murder mystery game, Cluedo, is brought up to date for a new generation of players. Cluedo Escape: Treachery at Tudor Mansion, features the familiar characters from the original, but tweaks the formula by adding the fun of the modern escape room craze to the gameplay. Described as an “immersive, cinematic, single-play experience” Cluedo Escape players move their pieces around a gameboard that's built room-by-room as they draw cards, solve puzzles, unlock new rooms and use deduction to uncover clues that can be used to make an accusation after escaping the house. "Cluedo Escape: Treachery at Tudor Mansion combines the best aspects of the classic murder mystery with modern gameplay practices to create our most immersive whodunnit to date. We want people around the UK to experience it to its full this Halloween in locations that incarnate Mr Black’s famous country retreat." said Hasbro spokesperson Andrea Lester. To mark the release, the game’s makers are offering murder mystery fans the chance to escape to one of three luxurious Tudor mansions, Rothley Lakehouse in Northumberland, the Grade I listed Horton Court in Gloucestershire, and Selworthy Farmhouse, Somerset. Each house will come equipped with a Cluedo Escape game, and rooms will be kitted out with a selection of luxury Cluedo-themed props. Winners are unlikely to want to escape. With the murder mystery genre enjoying renewed popularity thanks to Hollywood films like Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, demand is likely to be high.
