There's a listing online, and the house does look very cool, but the floor plan isn't anything like "Clue". The kitchen doesn't have that black-and-white checkered floor, and there isn't a billiard room, a ballroom, or a library.
In fact, it isn't even a huge mansion. It's 3,000 square feet, with four bedrooms, and two luxury bathrooms. There is a garden, a terrace, and a secret passageway that leads to a bar, which is cool.
The property was once a group of seven cottages, and it served as a hotel for celebrities and other rich people. That's what it was when the game was created. But the buildings have since been turned into separate private residences.
In the listing, the current owners do say the house is great for entertaining and hosting "Clue" parties.
My second one is the game Mouse Trap, I love that when I was Kid. Do kids even play board games anymore? A "Mouse Trap" reality competition series based on the board game is in the works at Fox. The obstacles will be oversized and the contestants will have to steal cheese for money.
Each episode will end with a final round where the last two competitors have to work together to steal as much cheese as they can without getting, caught by the iconic Mouse Trap.
The "Mouse Trap" series isn't the only project from Hasbro that's in the works. There is also an animated "Clue" series being developed by Fox and a potential "Guess Who?" game show for NBC.
