Crack the Case with WorldWinner's CLUE Mystery Match!

Players Test Their Memory Skills to Win Cash Prizes in New Online CLUE Game

NEWTON, MASSACHUSETTS--(Marketwire - Oct. 13, 2009) - WorldWinner (www.worldwinner.com), a subsidiary of GSN and provider of online game competitions, is challenging players to a classic case of whodunit? in the new cash game version of Hasbro's classic mystery game, CLUE. To crack the case in CLUE Mystery Match!, players match identical cards in three separate rounds to identify the murder weapon, location and perpetrator of the crime through the process of elimination. Was it Mrs. Peacock in the study with a lead pipe? All of CLUE's classic characters make a cameo in CLUE Mystery Match!

"Between the list of suspects, crime locations and murderous weapons, CLUE has kept generations of game lovers guessing," said Peter Blacklow, president of WorldWinner and EVP of GSN Digital. "Now, we've taken the game of deductive reasoning and added a skill-based, memory-challenging twist where online players can challenge one another to achieve high scores and win cash prizes. Given our players' enthusiasm for previously adapted Hasbro titles, we're confident WorldWinner players are up for the CLUE Mystery Match! challenge."

CLUE Mystery Match! is the fourth in a series of Hasbro titles added to the WorldWinner roster of online cash competitions. The game builds on the successes of SCRABBLE(R) Cubes and MONOPOLY Downtown, which are both WorldWinner fan favorites. In addition to the recently unveiled Trivial Pursuit Turbo, WorldWinner will soon add cash competitions of Hasbro's TWISTER and BATTLESHIP to the online game site's roster.

"For more than 60 years, CLUE has been a favorite of mystery lovers and casual sleuths around the world. In WorldWinner's new online twist on this classic, our long-time fans will love putting their detective skills to the test for cash and prizes," said Jim Acton, Director of Licensing, Gaming and Lottery, Hasbro. "WorldWinner has done a great job of transforming Hasbro's board game classics into engaging online titles, and we're excited to bring CLUE into that mix."

WorldWinner's CLUE Mystery Match! is a memory game where players uncover one element of the murder mystery in each round of match making. The one remaining unmatched card at the end of each round leads players to the murder weapon, location and suspect. When a match of two cards is removed from the board, players have the added challenge of the "gravity affect" where remaining cards collapse in to the now open spaces. Players score points for making matches as well as a time bonus based on how quickly all matches are made. CLUE Mystery Match! is available at www.worldwinner.com and www.gsn.com, as well as through WorldWinner's partner sites, including AOL Games, MSN Games and Pogo.com.
