We have had several people enquire about Star Wars Clue and when it would arrive. The answer, finally, is today. Unlike traditional Clue games, this one comes with a 3 dimensional board. Also, instead of solving a murder, the players must determine which planet will be destroyed, where the Death Star plans are and how they will escape.
The new edition of the very popular Robinson Crusoe board game arrived today, two weeks before the official release date. While they last, buy a copy and get the Spyglass promo and an extra character card, the Sailor.
