WorldWinner Launches Online Cash Game Version of Clue16th October 2009 7:59 am GMT
In the latest in a series of Hasbro titles to be added to the company's roster of online cash competitions, online skills games site WorldWinner.com has announced the launch of Clue Mystery Match!, a new online variation of Hasbro's classic mystery game Clue, in which players compete for real cash prizes.
WorldWinner's Clue Mystery Match! is a memory game where players uncover one element of the murder mystery in each round of match-making. The one remaining unmatched card at the end of each round leads players to the murder weapon, location and suspect. Players score points for making matches as well as a time bonus based on how quickly all matches are made.
"Between the list of suspects, crime locations and murderous weapons, Clue has kept generations of game lovers guessing," said Peter Blacklow, President of WorldWinner. "Now, we've taken the game of deductive reasoning and added a skill-based, memory-challenging twist where online players can challenge one another to achieve high scores and win cash prizes.
"Given our players' enthusiasm for previously adapted Hasbro titles, we're confident WorldWinner players are up for the Clue Mystery Match! challenge."
Clue Mystery Match! is the fourth in a series of Hasbro titles added to the WorldWinner roster of online cash competitions, and builds on the successes of Scrabble Cubes, Monopoly Downtown, and the recently unveiled Trivial Pursuit Turbo.
"For more than 60 years, Clue has been a favorite of mystery lovers and casual sleuths around the world. In WorldWinner's new online twist on this classic, our long-time fans will love putting their detective skills to the test for cash and prizes," said Jim Acton, Hasbro's Director of Licensing, Gaming and Lottery.
"WorldWinner has done a great job of transforming Hasbro's board game classics into engaging online titles, and we're excited to bring Clue into that mix."
WorldWinner will soon be adding online variations of Hasbro's classic games, Twister and Battleship.
