image for Waddingtons release Portuguese version of 'Cluedo' called 'Arguido'
Portuguese criminologist tests new Waddington game 'Arguido'

The well-known family board game Cluedo has been released in Portugal by Waddingtons. This version will be marketed under the name Arguido and will have some differences from the version played by the rest of the world. There is no board, there are no tokens and there are no cards.

The object of the game is the same, to discover who killed the victim (Mr. Boddy in the U.S. version and Mr. Black in the international version), where and with what weapon.

In the version played by the rest of the world, players announce theories, which other players have to disprove. In the Portuguese version, the players fall asleep for four months, then the first to wake up and shout "Arguido" wins.

The Portuguese Government has announced that Arguido will form part of the training course for all policemen and women.
