Re: Clue's 70th anniversary

I agree that Clue is probably on the 25 year cycle for anniversary editions. If the How To Train Your Dragon series can get Drew Struzan out of retirement from posters, I wonder if Hasbro still has the cultural pull (or would be willing to put up the money) to entice him back. I would be interested ...

Re: New Clue Themed Novel — Not A Clue

Picked this up from the library last weekend and have been reading it slowly. As the description and other reviews preview, this is not a country house murder mystery (cozy or gruesome). Delaume uses the elements of Clue as a structural conceit, and her approach to fiction contains meta-textual flou...

I'm making a bio for Mrs. Peacock on Tumblr.
Neat! Will this be a linked story with all the suspects and characters?

Re: TAoM Invasion of the Spambots

Are there other platforms where spamming is less of an issue (Discource or vbulletin?), or is there something we as a community can do to better deter spam and spam accounts? I'm sure I speak for multiple users when I say that we appreciate all you do, @BBP, to remove all the ads for fake EU passpor...

Re: Clue: RIVERDALE Edition

Branding Clue as "The Classic Mystery Game" has allowed USAopoly (and Hasbro) to tailor their games' premises to their themed material (often relying on theft or similar crimes/indiscretions), but Riverdale's use of Jason Blossom's murder is jarring considering that it is a mystery within the show's...

Re: Which was the best mansion?

I’ll just leave this here: https://www.vox.com/videos/2018/11/13/18092400/victorian-mansion-horror-icon Interesting video about the Victorian mansion. And of course Hill House is included. Ohhh thanks! good video. I never new the hystery of why Victorian mansions are related to horror and spooky th...

I imagine Hasbro will churn these out for a year or two, then let them die off. Reddit is already having a good laugh with these editions, and asking the same question again and again: Why?
Is there a Clue sub, or did this game make its way to r/boardgames?

Re: "MURDER AT THE BLACKWELL ESTATE!"

Interesting, especially the scenario you established with Mr. Boddy being murdered around midnight after a gala. Is this connected to the family tree you are creating?

Re: Which was the best mansion?

I have quibbles with each of the mansions (rich coming from an apartment renter, I know), but Hill House comes ahead with the most pluses from me. That is in no small part due to the movie being able (and also, the movie's requirement) to show what the game boards and game shows either left to the i...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

Actually, this ties into something I've been wanting to do. We have a character repository for character IDEAS, but what about characters that are actually canon? Wikipedia has a decently thorough list of canon characters . Adding the characters introduced in the book and puzzle series would make t...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

The cold open for the September 7 episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert riffed on Clue. Interesting that they used the Clue logo from the 70s-90s, not the current one. However, the writers and production designers who work on his show probably fit in the age range for which those were the ga...

Re: Additional Mystery Puzzle Characters

This collector's page has links to several games' booklets. The two you are looking for are not there, but perhaps the collector has them but has not posted them yet. There is a contact link at the bottom of the page.

"Let's just smash right to the solution -- just like Miss Julep must have smashed Mr. Boddy's head in with that goat skull," said Mr. Nogoon.

[TheButlerButInnocent suggests Miss Julep with the goat skull in the Chamber of Illusions. Cue SirShamrock to disprove.]

"Nice not to be suspect for once," Dr. Yukon remarked.

"You have evidence against the claim?" Mr. Nogoon asked.

"No," she replied. "Nevertheless, still nice."

Mr. Nogoon stared ahead silently.

"Well," said Dr. Yukon, noticing that people were looking at her expectantly, "if the gentleman won't speak for himself, I don't see why I should."

Dr. Yukon sighed. "As distressed as that horrible man's accusation was, I am perhaps more distressed by how its stench is lingering. Perhaps you have something to say on the matter, Sir Shamrock?"
