What is the goal?

Someone broke one of the toys and you need to find out:

  • which toy is broken,
  • who broke it, and
  • when they did it!
  • Gameboard,
  • 6 Clue character pawns
  • 6 furniture tokens,
  • 7 white bases,
  • 7 yellow bases,
  • detective notepad, die, and
  • label sheet
  • Place all of the yellow bases facedown and mix them up. Do not peek. Put one facedown in the board’s center. This is the time the toy was broken!
  • Place a furniture token into each of the left-over yellow bases (don’t look at the bottoms) and place each token in its appropriate room on the gameboard.
  • Set aside the white base with the toy chest, Place face-down the others, and mix them up. Without peeking, put one of those bases facedown in the board’s center. This is the broken toy.
  • Mix up the toy chest base with the remaining white bases, and place a character pawn into each. The character pawn with the toy chest broke the toy!
  • Place all character pawns on matching start spaces, even if there aren’t six players. Everyone begins to pick a character!
  • Everyone takes a notepad sheet and keeps their notepad entries hidden from others


Take turns rolling the die to see if you:

  • move your character, 
  • look under characters, or
  • check under furniture

Note down the clues that you find, strike out choices, and eventually find out what happened.

Crossing out characters

When looking under a white base, cross out the toy you see as this can’t be the broken toy. Also cross out the character, UNLESS you find the toy chest. Whoever has the toy chest broke the toy! Keep looking under characters to figure out which toy was broken.

How do you win?

Make an accusation and solve the mystery

2. Secretly look under the bases in the center of the board and under the character
you’re accusing.
3. Are you right about all three?


If you solve all 3 questions, you win the game.


If you fail to solve all 3, you are out. Don’t tell anyone the solution.
