Very nice. Looking forward to the 3D version. That said, I’m not sure I like the Trophy Room as a concept. Oh, I realize it has its origins in the Patent edition, and Master Detective. But I’m not sure how it fits into a real mansion. Obviously a big game hunter might have such a room out of pe...

@ Sir Shamrock @cacums Thanks for the replies. This looks fantastic, very nice work. The layout and design are brilliant but I do have a couple of questions (mostly ideas I came up with, not changes) - Have you thought about making the game have 10 suspects - the center of the board could be the sta...

Thanks for the replies. @CluedoKid I think the only characters with a clear advantage in the original are Peacock and Mustard (he has a choice of 2 rooms that are closest). @cacums, I see what you mean about 4 spaces now, sorry for the misunderstanding. I've tried another layout and have moved away ...

I've made two more modified versions of the layout. In the first version the conservatory has been made square reducing the moves needed between the 'ballroom and conservatory' and also between the 'Conservatory and Billiard room' My board version 1.5 Kitchen to ballroom = 4 Ballroom to Conservatory...

Thanks for the feedback cacums. Not sure what you mean by 4 spaces between each room on the original board though as that isn't the case for most rooms. I certainly can add more doors but at the moment it seems fairly comparable to the original (some doors are closer in my version and some are furth...

Board layout changes for 8 player

Hello, I've recently been working on a layout based on the original board with the aim of supporting 8 players and also making sure that no player has an advantage at the start. The ultimate aim for this is to make my own Franklin mint style 3D board so I want the layout to be aesthetically pleasing...

ruckage, first off, this is a beautiful design! I was wondering. Where did you get the clear, full images of Captain Brown, Peach and Slate-Gray for their cards you designed? I do not own Cluedo Super Challenge, but from what I see their cards are not complete (I've circled differences in green) so...

Thanks for the replies. Very nice - the rooms look amazing. Have you decided on how many suspects / weapons there will be? I think 9 weapons and 9 suspects. I think it's a cool idea. The only caveat I have is that part of regular gameplay is strategizing how you're going to get around the board. I'm...

Cluedo Master Sleuth

I've just started work on a side project to go with my DIY 'Super Cluedo' set. What I thought would be cool would be to have a modular board similar to Super sleuth but using the super cluedo/master detective rules. Below is a picture of all the room tiles I've designed. I need to work on the full r...

Definitely looks good enough. But you should really keep an eye out for Passport to Murder to get the Blunderbuss and Axe. You could even electroplate them to match at some point. It's a shame about the Spanner though. There's no really high quality Spanner in any of the Cluedo editions. Except pos...

I just managed to get a full set of Super Cluedo weapons from Ebay for a bargain price so I'll be using those in my set. I have to say the quality of these pieces is fantastic. I may add some of the other weapons from Super Cluedo challenge as optional extras to vary the difficulty as well. I was th...

Thanks for the replies That looks great! What did you make the board out of? Thanks. The art is printed on photo quality inkjet paper (it looks like ordinary paper but has a matt coating for high resolution prints). I then laminated the prints using adhesive book covering, this protects the artwork ...

Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been busy though - I've just finished constructing the actual board :D . It took a long while but I think the end result was worth it. I wanted the board to be nice and compact when folded so that it would fit in a standard A4 size box so its constructed from 8 ...

This is a nit pick and I know it won't fit with original Cluedo at all. But would it be possible to call the REVOLVER - PISTOL instead? I think I might do just that as I do agree that it clearly is a pistol as opposed to a revolver. As an added bonus if I could also find an actual revolver game pie...

Okay, I've just had a go at drawing the revolver myself, certainly not perfect but I think it looks okay. Below is a picture of the weapons cards using my own revolver artwork next to a card using the official Master detective candlestick artwork. I think it's a close enough match style-wise so I'll...

I do think that weapon art from master detective is a better fit - only problem is the weapon pieces I have don't match. The wepons I have are from 'Super Cluedo challenge' They are: Lead Piping Dagger Rope Candlestick Poison Spanner * Axe * Revolver * Blunderbuss * The last 4 would need artwork to ...

Thanks for the replies - though I'm more unsure now than I was to begin with :lol:

Anyone else like to offer an opinion that might help me decide (or possibly confuse me more)?

Really nice work. I think the colors all turned out great. I do like the monochrome look, but I also liked your original high contrasting colors. But, while the weapons cards blend right in, the extremely colorful room and suspect cards kind of pop against the subtle colors used throughout the rest...

Thanks for the replies everyone. Out of interest, have you considered using the passport to murder images for the weapons? Hello, I certainly considered it but unfortunately I don't own Passport to murder and couldn't find any good quality images of the cards online. Also passport to murder has very...
