The Op Games Unveils CLUE®: Diary of a Wimpy Kid – Available Now!

Usaopoly (The Op) has introduced a humor-filled twist on the classic mystery game with CLUE®: Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Merging one of the world’s most iconic games with Jeff Kinney’s best-selling book series, this new edition will thrill fans of all ages.

A Fresh Take on Classic Mystery

In CLUE®: Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Greg Heffley loses sight of his mischievous little brother, Manny, and players must unravel the mystery to recover the toddler before time runs out. Gamers can play as beloved characters from the Wimpy Kid world, such as Greg, Rowley, Frank, Rodrick, Susan, or Holly, each equipped with unique game-changing abilities.

The game breathes new life into the traditional CLUE formula, replacing the weapon tokens with “distraction tokens” that symbolize Manny’s possible distractions. These include humorous elements from the series, such as The Cheese, Greg’s Journal, Manny’s Pacifier, Ladybug Cellphone, The Pig, and Manny’s Training Potty.

Designed for two to six players, ages eight and up, the game features custom-illustrated artwork depicting locations from the popular book series, alongside six Suspect Clue cards, six Secret Clue cards, nine Location Clue cards, 25 Intrigue cards, and the infamous Clue mystery revealing envelope.

Creating New Memories

Dane Chapin, CEO of The Op, expressed excitement over the collaboration with one of the best-selling kid’s book series ever, stating, “We are passionate about creating games that bring families and friends together to create new memories – making CLUE: Diary of Wimpy Kid a perfect fit for fans of all ages.”

Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, also shared his enthusiasm, saying, “We are thrilled to have collaborated with Usaopoly and Hasbro to create a board game that captures the best of both worlds: the classic intrigue of Clue and the humor of Wimpy Kid. We can’t wait for fans to crack the case to find Manny and are confident they’ll have as much fun playing the game as we had creating it!”

Release Celebration at “An Unlikely Story”

For die-hard Wimpy Kid fans, a release celebration will take place at author Jeff Kinney’s bookstore, “An Unlikely Story,” located in Plainville, Massachusetts, on Wednesday, August 23. Attendees can play the new game, purchase copies, and enter to win exciting prizes and promotions.
