Classic murder mystery board game Cluedo, known as Clue in the States, has been given a text messaging make-over by games giant Hasbro.

The new "Clue: Secrets & Spies Edition" launches in America as a spy-themed version of the game in which players receive secret clues through real-time text messages on their personal phones, a gaming first for Hasbro.

During the game, six informative text messages will be sent "to set players on a new path or prompt an urgent meeting".

An example text message reads, "Trouble down under! Move 1 agt of ur choice 2 SYDNEY!" Clues can also be uncovered by using the ultraviolet decoder included in the game to reveal secret meetings.

The game is now available in the States for $24.99 for two to five players age 9 and up.
