Always make sure that you have a notepad with you when you are playing Clue. When you are given your cards, look at them, and start marking off all that you have from off your pad. When playing the game, each player is supposed to give you a clue. The player gives you a clue by showing you any of his or her cards. When you are shown a card by another player, you can tick that off too from your notepad but when you do that also make sure that you record the player’s initials next to the clue he or she gave you.
Likewise when another player is giving a clue to another player and you know what card he or she showed you can again tick that off on your notepad while also recording that player’s initials next to it. This will build up a database for you that will be very helpful to you in guessing wisely. This is why it is important that you note down the initials of every person so that you know which players has which cards. This will then help you in knowing what cards have been showed around between two other players. Once you start playing with these tactics you can really become fast in crossing out all the clues and in being the first on to know who the killer is, with what, and where.
This is the best strategy to adopt to increase your chances of winning any game of Clue that you play. You basically have to maintain a record where you mark off all the cards or clues that are given to you and by which player it was given. You should also keep in mind that in cases where a player sometimes forgets and asks you to show the same card again, along with some other card that you have, you can then show the previous card to him or her. This is how you will soon become a pro at Clue.
