Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the out of print Milton Bradley game "Crack the Case"? Please e-mail me if you have a complete copy that you are willing to sell.

it's been so many years since i've played clue that i've all but forgotton how. i just remember that three cards are put in an envelope and that is the solution. can anyone tell me how the game is played after that?

If a player ends their movement in a room, they can suggest who they think did it, with what weapon, in that room. Then another player will show one of those three cards to the first player (starting at the first player's left, and stopping when any player has one of the three cards).

If no one showed one of the three cards to the first player, that player can make an accusation, which doesn't have to be the same as the suggestion he or she made earlier in the turn. The player looks at the three cards in the envelope. If the accusation was right, he or she wins. If not, he or she loses and doesn't get to take any more turns (but does show cards to other players when they make suggestions).

Hope that helps!

Has anyone heard of the game Stop Thief? I played this at a friend's a long time ago, and it was a lot of fun. It is similar to Clue, but with more characters and action, and has sound effects. I'm not sure if anyone even sells it anymore, but I would love to get a copy!

Please forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask.

Has anyone heard of the game Mancala? I think it is a brilliant strategy game, with hundreds of rule variants.

Problem is, I only know a few. Nigerian, Egyptian, and another (unknown) type. If anyone knows any good rule variants, please let me know, including any links to sites with rules.

many thanks,

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

Hi Stephen, if you go to and type Mancala, it brings back a lot of sites to explore. Happy hunting!!

It's been quite a long time since I have played a board game like clue I think you put like three cards in a little envelope and you try to narrow down the suspects and the place and tool where they did it .Whell thats all I have to say.

Every morning, we are given 24 golden hours. Even if you had all the money in the world, you couldn't buy another one. They are one of the few things in this world that are truly free. Spend them wisely.

Stop Thief, oh man does that bring back memories. You had a little remote control looking thing that you would press to hear an audio clue if you were close to the suspects location. It was a great board game, but I have no idea where you would find a working version of it. For that matter, I'm looking for a version of Clue - the master detective one with the extra suspects, weapons and rooms. Any suggestions?
