We all love the classic game of Clue where each player tries to figure out whodunnit. But what if the whole game was given a twist into a game of whereyougonnadoit, instead. Are you with me?
This date will take some planning, and it will require some money to buy some special colored lingerie or panties, but it will be worth it. You’ll also need access to the whole house, so make plans for your children to be elsewhere for the evening.
- Clue game board
- Soft music or mystery music of your choice
- One piece of lingerie in one of the following colors: Mustard, plum, scarlet, green, white and/or peacock. (Or one of each if you’re able.)
- Six objects you would enjoy using for a romantic rendezvous. For instance, a blindfold, a feather, flavored lipgloss, ribbon, etc. Assign each object to a game piece: rope (ribbon), wrench (blindfold), knife (feather), candlestick (scented candle), pipe (massage oil), revolver (lipgloss). You can use these ideas or come up with some of your own.
Next, make cards for each room in your house to match the rooms on the Clue Board.
Here is what you could do:
- The Kitchen = Your Kitchen
- The Study = Your Bathroom Shower
- The Conservatory = The Backyard
- The Hall = The Hall
- The Dining Room = The Dining Room
- The Billiard Room = The Family Room
- The Lounge = The Master Bedroom
- The Library = The Office or Schoolroom
- The Ballroom = The Garage or make this a Wildcard – the winner’s choice
Play the game using the normal rules and try to figure out who did it and with what weapon and in what room. This will determine where you and your sweetie will make a romantic memory on this night.
If you don’t have enough rooms to use all of the clue rooms, then pick different parts of a room, like the living room sofa, the living room floor etc. It doesn’t really matter how many rooms you have. Once you determine whereyougonnadoit, you won’t care one bit. 🙂
This is an awesome idea. Love your blog Debi!!!

I love this idea! I’m always up for something creative and out of the box (even a game box) to do with my hubby. And just in time for Valentines Day too. I’m not sure if I can get my boys out of the house for that night, but I’m going to look at the calendar and see what I can come up with soon. Thanks for the great idea and come on over to Messy Marriage – I have my first ever link-up called, Wedded Wednesday. This would be a great post for others to read!
Now I wish we weren’t living with the in-laws! What a fantastic idea! I’ll have to tuck this away for future reference.
I am amazed at the ideas you come up with Debi!
Tom says it’s a gift. 😉
Definitely like this one. Sounds like great fun! Thanks for sharing.
I may be waaaaay to much of a game geek, but the minimum number of players for Clue is three.
But I guess the whole point of this is NOT playing a normal game of Clue.
Exactly! This version is only for two of course. Bending the rules adds to the fun.
Woohoo, Debi. That is spicy!! Me like :).
Glad im married to the game geek, dwayne the canoe guy. This is one game of clue i could enjoy!
Hmm, I think I might need to pick up clue now….
This is a great idea. my wife has actually done this twist with a small list of games including. monopoly, clue, jenga, memory. they are a blast and have been anniversary gifts that she gives me. Lots of fun memories.
