Up to six people can play, using any controller. The object, as in the board game, is to determine who murdered Mr. Boddy, where the crime took place, and which weapon was used.
Each player is dealt a number of cards. Each card eliminates a suspect, weapon, or room. Each player can view their own cards during their turn. A die is rolled, and the six players (represented by the six suspects Miss Scarlet, Col. Mustard, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, and Prof. Plum) move around the board. Upon entering one of the nine rooms on the board, the player must make a suggestion, choosing a suspect and a weapon (the room the player is in is automatically chosen). The suspect is summoned to that room, a vignette is shown, showing who or what was in that room, or who held the weapon. This would result in a clue given, such as "Miss Scarlet was in the Lounge" or "No one had the wrench". On the highest difficulty, the clues given are less broad, like in the board game, with clues only given that the chosen suspect or weapon was or wasn't in the room.
