TAMPA, Fla — As far as iconic board games go, Clue is right up at the top of the list.

Before the device age essentially doomed family game night, countless people wracked their brains to figure out if Colonel Mustard was the cold-blooded killer – or if Mrs. Peacock was a murderer in disguise.

Well now, Clue is coming to Tampa – and it’s going far beyond the board.

It’s a real-life detective game that involves teams of dressed-up detectives competing to catch a “killer.”

CluedUpp Games is behind the action-packed throwback, and according to the company’s website, it’s already been played by 250,000 people in 25 countries.

Each team can have up to six people, who will have to travel around down to track down “virtual witnesses” and eliminate “suspects.”

The event is scheduled for Feb. 15, 2020, and tickets cost $48 per team.
