Color Computer Clue is version of the popular board game Clue. It was originally written in 1982 for the Coco 1; Larry re-did it for the Coco 3 using John Kowalski's (Sockmaster) VDG emulator (which does 32x16 text on the Coco 3's 320x192 screen, making the characters even larger and easier to read). He later went back and fixed up the Coco 1/2 version a little, and made a loader that allows one to pick the version to run, if you have a Coco 3, or run the Coco 1/2 version if that is what you have. The goal of the game is to solve a murder, by figuring out in what room, with what weapon, who the killer was. This involves deducing, through cards between the computer player and you, and travelling between the rooms, which rooms/weapons/suspects to exclude.
