Winning Moves to launch Midsomer Murders Cluedo

Marks the first ever board game venture for the hit show.

Winning Moves UK has teamed with Bentley Productions and all3media international to launch a Midsomer Murders Cluedo game  

Under official license from Hasbro, the first Midsomer Murders board game will be available to buy from February 5th 2016 exclusively from Amazon, and on general release in spring 2016.

Midsomer Murders is a television series based on the books of Caroline Graham, the creator of Inspector Barnaby and the county of Midsomer.

Dastardly happenings abound in the seemingly idyllic county of Midsomer, with cases of blackmail, intrigue, deceit, adultery and murder, all unravelled by DCI John Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon). Over 300 people have died before their time in Midsomer, and some of those in the strangest of circumstances including death by cow, by French guillotine and even by toppling shelves of Midsomer cheese. 

The game follows the familiar Cluedo format and features key cast and characters from the show including DCI John Barnaby, Sarah Barnaby and Sykes the dog.

This edition will also mark the first time that members of the public have appeared  in a game of Cluedo  with new characters such as The Village Vicar and The Local Psychic played by Midsomer Murders fans, winners of a competition that ran on the Midsomer Murders Facebook page.
