Travel Clue is a simplified version of the game Clue. Like Clue, the object of the game is to correctly accuse the suspect, weapon and room surrounding the death of Mr. Boddy. There are 21 square Clue cards with a picture of the 9 rooms (blue), 6 weapons (red) and 6 suspects (yellow). The detective sheet lists these 21 items and has a 3x3 grid representing the small gameboard of 9 rooms.
One of each color Clue cards is set aside for the answer; the remaining are placed in each room, 2 cards in each, on the gameboard. Players take turns looking at the cards in one room and asking another player if they had seen one of the clues. The winner is the first one to correctly identify the weapon, suspect and room.
