Trivia-QLUE

Packaging for Sinclair QL Trivia-QLUE

This is a version of Cluedo, where you are attending a house where there has been a murder.

It is not clear what the correct title of the program is, as it is listed as 'Trivia-QLUE' on the side of the cassette case, but named as 'Executive-QLUE' in the game itself.

You have to guess which room the murder was committed in, the name of the murderer and the weapon. There are 13 rooms, 13 weapons and 13 suspects to choose from.

However, in order to be able to make a guess you first of all have to answer a trivia question (there are over 700 questions in the game, covering religion, history, science, geography and astronomy.

Tantalisingly, there is a slip inside the cassette case which says that included on the cartridge was a program called LIFE EXPECTANCY. According to an old RMG Enterprises catalogue this was a life expectancy predictor or you might receive a football forecaster instead.

Unfortunately neither were included on our microdrive cartridge.
