Springfield is in shambles. Chief Wiggum suspects foul play when he finds wealthy industrialist Charles Montgomery Burns dead. In a typical display of incompetence, Wiggum rounds up six likely suspects: Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Krusty the Clown and Waylon Smithers. He gives them 24 hours to solve the crime through a real life game of Clue. The fingered suspects must dress-up as their favorite Clue game character to solve the mystery. Their job is to figure out who killed Mr. Burns, where the crime occurred and what weapon was used.
Okay, they didn't re-invent the rules of the classic murder mystery game Clue, they simply reproduced it with characters, locations, and weapons from the world of The Simpsons. But that simplicity is what makes this set so much fun. Weapons include a poison donut and a plutonium rod, while locales include the power plant and Krustylu Studios. If all these references confuse you, well, it's still a game of Clue and a great game to play. But if these references send you off into a gleeful reverie of repeated catch phrases and favorite episode memories, then you really need this game.
