HOW TO PLAY GET-A-CLUE
* Before Play Begins *
Download the GET-A-CLUE Player Card, unzip it and install it.
The Game Card lists all of the possible clues. During Play, clues will be revealed.
Using the Game Card you will keep track of which clues have been eliminated as well as
which suspects, victims, rooms and weapons are still a possible solution to the Crime.
When asked, ESP the host to REGISTER.
Your card will remain blank until the Host sends the board to you before play begins.
(you won't see it filled till host sends info right before game begins)
* Playing the Game *
The Host will randomly call the first person to play.
You will automatically get a FREE Private Clue on your first turn as well.
YOU then ROLL the DIE (or have the host do an AUTO ROLL for you) OR...
YOU may choose to GUESS = SOLVE the Crime.
Say either: ROLL, AUTO, or GUESS.
*You are allowed 1 FREE GUESS per game. If you don't SOLVE the game with your FREE GUESS,
you are NOT allowed to guess again UNLESS you ROLL a 5 or 6 during your next turn*
As you and other people play, clues will be revealed which are NOT involved in the crime (ie: NOT in solution).
Your job is to keep track of these clues so you can guess the SUSPECT, VICTIM, ROOM & WEAPON.
* ROLLING *
ROLL the DIE or have Host do AUTO ROLL for you. What the ROLLS Mean....

Marking your Card
The Player Card can be used in many ways to track clues and your guesses. Thus helping you in the process of elimination to get to the solution of the Murder.
You can also just use a pen and paper.
Using the Square Box - ELIMINATING
If you click the square box beside the Suspect, Victim, Room or Weapon, you will see a checkmark = possibility.
If you click the square box AGAIN, you will see the Suspect, Victim, Room or Weapon with a line thru it = You have eliminated this possibility.
If you right-click a clue, it becomes italicized
Right-click again, it becomes underlined
Right-click again, it becomes a strike through (line through the clue)
Right-click again, it becomes normal
How you use these variations is your choice.
Using Left-Click (Using Colors)
If you Left-Click a Suspect, Victim, Room or Weapon - the color will change.
There are 8 possible color variations.
How you use the color system is totally your choice or
you may choose not to use it at all.
Using the Round Circle - GUESSING
If you are guessing, click the ROUND circle beside the Suspect, Victim, Room or Weapon to turn that choice ON.
You need to make one choice in each of the categories.
Then click PRIVATEto send your GUESS in ESP to Host) OR Click PUBLIC (to say it out loud).
After you guess, the Host will respond in ESP if you made a PRIVATE guess or OUT LOUD if you made a PUBLIC guess.
You will be told how many you got correct out of the 4 categories.
You will NOT know which one(s) were correct. That is where your reasoning skills come into play.
For example, you may be told... You Got 1 correct and Gain 1 Point.
So you know you got it right in 1 of the 4 categories. But which one?
At this point you might use the text area on the game board to type notes for yourself, or utilize other color variations to keep track of the result of this guess. How you use the colors if totally up to you. Figure out a system that works for YOU!
