Throw away your pads and pencils, Clued Up will make you a Clue champion.
Clued Up transforms your messy notes into a crisp table, showing you for each card, at a glance: who’s holding it, who’s not holding it, who’s suggested it, who’s seen it and the likelihood of it being the card in the envelope. All you have to do is enter the details of each turn.
If you don’t want to give your opponents a chance Clued Up can go beyond just a smart scorecard. If you enable automatic deductions the app will cross-reference all of the turns in the game and locate cards for you, going way beyond what a human could achieve.
Clued Up works with pretty much any edition of Clue.
Alien Vs. Predator
The Big Bang Theory
Dungeons and Dragons
Five Nights at Freddy’s
Game of Thrones
The Haunted Mansion
Legend of Zelda
Rick and Morty Back in Blackout
The Twilight Zone
The Walking Dead
If you don’t see your edition listed you can use the card set editing feature to create any edition you like and store it in the cloud for others to use.
Enter your name then the names of your opponents in the order they are sitting, starting with the player on your left.
Select if you want the game to automatically locate cards for you. If you select to use this feature, as you record the turns in the game the app will cross-reference the location of cards from all of the player's responses and deduce for you what cards must have been shown in each go. Be sure that your opponents don’t mind you winning if you leave this switch on (or don’t tell them).
Once you’ve entered the names of the players in the game you’ll be given the option to select which edition of the game you are playing. If you don’t see your edition listed then you can create a new edition. Any edition you create will be stored in the cloud for yourself and other players to use.
After selecting your card set you then have to enter in all of the cards you have been dealt. Enter every card you are holding and then press finish.
Playing the Game:
On the main screen, you have a list of all of the items. Eliminated items are shown in blue, items held by you in green and solved items are shown in red. Underneath the item name, you will see additional information such as who does or does not hold the card, who has suggested a card and who has seen a card. You will also see stats indicating how likely each card is to be the final item as a percentage and with the progress bar under each card.
To eliminate items you need to make suggestions and enter in the suggestions that your opponents make. The app will automatically eliminate a card if it is shown to you and, if you’ve selected to have the game located cards for you, when entering another player’s suggestion, if a card is shown and it’s known that the other two cards in the suggestion are elsewhere or not held by that player the game will automatically eliminate these.
To enter your suggestion you pick the items from the table and press the ‘Your Suggestion’ button. You will ask the player to your left, if they don’t show a card to you press ‘No Cards Shown’ and move on to the next player, if they show a card you select the card from the wheel and press ‘Card Shown’.
To enter an opponent’s suggestion you do the same thing except you select ‘Other’s Suggestion’ and, on the next screen, select the player making the suggestion.
You can manually enter that a player holds or doesn’t hold a particular card by swiping the cell to the left a pressing the Eliminate/Uneliminate button.
The app will tell you when cards locations are deduced and categories are solved.
You can undo your last move if you make a mistake by pressing the menu button and selecting Undo.

Wrong number of cards in 2 player mode.
The iPad version of the app Clued Up is fine, but Klued Up does not work right in any of the 21 card sets with 2 players. 21 cards minus 3 for the Confidential envelope leaves 18 cards. So 9 cards per player. The iPhone version seems to think you get 7. So it never calculates anything correctly, particularly rooms. It lets you enter 9 of 7 cards okay but you have to go with your gut and choose a room with 40% odds not 100%. It seems okay with 3 or 4 players. I finally bought another app for the iPhone. I used to graph all this out as a logic problem so this does beat that, but only on an iPad apparently. I was contacted by the developer, so they are responsive, kudos. On box technically the game is for 3-6 players only. 2 player version of the rules include setting aside some cards to look at when no one can prove anyone wrong, as a sort of virtual 3rd player. But the iPad and iPhone apps are still not consistent with each other. The developer said that they may put in a setting. Changing to 4 stars. We only have so many iPads and iPhones around the house when everyone is playing but this at least only effects 2 player mode.

I think you’re probably playing with a different set of rules to what the game is programmed for when it comes to two player games. The app uses the Clued Up: The Classic Mystery Game rules for 2 player games. They state that when playing 2 player games 4 cards should be placed in rooms and not dealt to players. That’s in addition to the 3 in the envelope. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to discuss. Perhaps there’s a setting I can add to accommodate your needs.
My siblings and I love this app and love using it when we play Clue. However, each time we play we get tired of having so show what we have. It’s too risky when you have 2 or more things when someone is making a guess so when you show your cards someone automatically knows you have more than one. And it’s too much work to make a rule about having to show cards instead of showing the phone-we like playing outside and it gets kind of windy. My older brother suggested that the app should allow you to send one item that you have when it’s your turn to show any cards you have. For example if I have the candlestick then I can just click show candlestick and it’ll pop up on the guessers screen or something like that.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm going to implement this feature as soon as I can.
Good app, too many ads/in app purchases
The app is very good--it processes the odds of any of the various cards being one of the 3 required to identify. Really makes it clear how certain it is & lets the user know when it also "finds" a card in someone else's hand.
The bombardment of ads takes what is a practically perfect app and makes it an almost abhorrent money grab. The constant ad bar at the bottom of the app is rather annoying. I was under the impression that, if paying $2.99, there wouldn't be any ads, though to be fair, it was never promised to be ad free when I purchased it. When the app determines who is holding a certain card, it allows you to know that specific information--if you either watch an ad (which doesn't always work well in a live game) or pay $1.99. Initially, I didn't think the $1.99 was a bad deal, but then I found out that fee was for each game played, not a one time expense. And if you spend the money for an ad free game, but don't finish the game, you're out the $1.99.

It's now possible to pay once and use it for an unlimited number of games for a whole year.
