Hasbro has replaced Mrs. White from Clue (Cluedo), and replaced her with a younger, more professional Dr. Orchid. This has led to lots of discussion in the game industry about females in games and on box covers.
In Get Adler! Deduction Card Game we have two strong female characters – one good and one bad: Agent Gold and Kate Collins. We are just finishing the 7/8 player expansion which adds French Agent Gigi Bonnet – a good character. That brings us to 3 out of 8 characters, getting closer to 50/50. Our artist is also female. Perhaps all these reasons together is why Get Adler! is popular with female and male, young and older and gamers and non-gamers.
