Fans Can Now Squad Up with Their Favorite Squishmallows in an Adorable New Version of the Classic Mystery Game of CLUE®
The Op Games Launches CLUE®: Squishmallows Edition
CARLSBAD, Calif., Oct. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Usaopoly (The Op), the board game and puzzle publisher behind iconic licensed games and best-selling party games Telestrations®, Blank Slate™, and Hues and Cues™, today launched a new, plush-inspired version of a classic mystery game with CLUE®: Squishmallows Edition, under license from leading toy and game company Hasbro, adding to an already impressive line of licensed Squishmallows games. As the holiday season quickly approaches, the new game makes for the perfect gift for fans on the lookout for new ways to squish, collect, and squad up with their favorite Squishmallows.
In CLUE®: Squishmallows Edition, someone crashed the squad's sharing party, and now Winston's mac n' cheese is missing! Players are challenged to use their best deduction skills to help out the Squishmallows. With six character movers to choose from – Leonard, Cam, Lola, Zozo, Avery, and Emily – explore a fancy mansion and find out WHO ate the mac n' cheese, WHERE they perpetrated the delicious crime and with WHAT item left as evidence.
"Following the successful launch of MONOPOLY®: Squishmallows Edition last fall, we're so excited to be expanding our lineup of licensed Squishmallows games yet again with the addition of CLUE®: Squishmallows Edition," said Dane Chapin, CEO of The Op. "As one of the most dedicated groups of fans and collectors today, we're always searching for new ways to help grow those iconic plush collections in a way that also brings loved ones and fans alike together to play. We're honored to add another Squishmallows title to the fandom's must-have collectors list and are sure this will quickly make its way to the top of many holiday lists as well."
With a super cute spin on the classic CLUE® components, weapon tokens are now "custom items" representing the possible item that was left behind when perpetrating the delicious crime, including Popcorn, a Bucket Hat, a Popsicle, a Fanny Pack, Headphones, and Sunglasses. Designed for two to six players, ages eight and up, CLUE®: Squishmallows Edition features custom-illustrated artwork displaying several original Squishmallows locations, including The Pool, Lounge, and Bowling Alley. The game also includes six Personality cards, 21 Rumor cards, 21 Support cards, and the infamous Clue mystery revealing envelope.
"As the worldwide phenomenon Squishmallows continues to be one of the most coveted licenses across categories, we are thrilled to expand our collaboration with Usaopoly to amplify playtime for the whole family," said Gerhard Runken, Senior Vice President of Brand & Marketing of Jazwares. "The beloved mystery game CLUE® and the iconic Squishmallows' personalities are a perfect recipe for fun."
CLUE®: Squishmallows Edition (MSRP: $44.99) is available now on The Op's website - just in time for the holiday gifting season. To complete your ultimate collection, The Op Games also offers MONOPOLY®: Squishmallows Edition (MSRP: $59.99), SPOT IT®: Squishmallows (MSRP: $14.99) and Squishmallows "#Share My Squad" 1000 Piece Puzzle (MSRP: $17.99).
