Re: The Ghost of Mrs White

Hand sanitiser, disinfectant, toilet paper, paper towels, wipes, rice and pasta seem to all be hard to find around here My mom showed me a video my uncle took while shopping H-E-B (a mega-market in Houston, where I live) of people in lines outside of the store. I've had the problem of waiting on li...

Re: The Ghost of Mrs White

Same here. That and flour. I wasn't aware that flour was that hard to find, but then again I haven't looked for any in a while. I have heard eggs can be an issue, and I've also read about people having problems finding disposal diapers in some places. The issues I've had (aside from toilet paper, h...

Re: The Ghost of Mrs White

That was basically what he was getting at, although board games would fit what he was saying as his wife bought them for their family to have something to do - but it comes after a lot of conflicting and vague statements from him about what is and isn't essential at this time. Sort of like we have ...

Re: The Ghost of Mrs White

Amazon is currently sold out. I mean I'd say it makes sense in the midst of a pandemic; board games don't take priority. So I'll just have to wait it out. While there are certainly lots of things that are disrupted by the pandemic across the world, our Prime Minister here in Australia recently call...

Re: Toilet Paper

Who here is stocked up on toilet paper? We had maybe eight rolls left, so I was keeping an eye out for it whenever I was out shopping. Managed to buy a few single-rolls of the brand we normally use, then more recently was able to score a twelve-pack on the shelf at a Walmart. Normally I would buy m...

Re: Marmalade Online Gaming

So ... anyone interested in trying to coordinate some online games in this age of the Corona ? It's probably best to use the term "coronavirus", not just "the corona". The beer maker is having enough problems with people who, for some reason, think there's a connection between the two. https://i67....

Gosh darn it. They're back. At least they aren't so offensive this time. Oh, I don't know about that "so offensive" part. SPAM about things like "Infared Thermal Imager" and "Disposable Surgical Mask" during a global pandemic are sicker than the porno SPAM postings at a time like this. I don't know...

Not sure if any of you lot are locked up already but it seems like a good time to start up another round of Cluedo... By the way, how would that work? Do all the people playing link in to an internet version of the game, or would it be more of a play-by-mail version, but using email instead for any...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

. . . I was referring to things like being able to legally buy alcohol, cigarettes, go to casinos and gamble, and a few other things that you can do once you turn 21 but can't legally do when you're still 18-20. Well I don’t plan to do any of those things in the future, hopefully. Well, alcohol and...

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

Like I said, thank you all! Just one more year til I’m a legal adult. Being an "adult" can be overrated some times. Plus, you still have to wait until you're 21 to legally do some things (at least here in the U.S.) :wink: I'm American, so yea, one more year. Actually, I was referring to things like...

Re: Additional Mystery Puzzle Characters

But there are other shades of blue that could be used for police officer names (that I don't know if they've already been used for a character or not):
* Cerulean
* Cobalt
* Denim
* Midnight
* Prussian
* Royal
* Sapphire
* Teal
* Tiffany
* Turquoise

So there is a Constable Gray in these stories? Another Gray to add to the list (and another police officer Gray).
But don't many police officers wear blue, not gray? :?

For an anniversary they should release a Patent version of the game - the original board, weapons, characters, awkward rule differences - I think it would be great to see!
I wonder if Hasbro has the rights to the prototype/Patent version of the game or not?

Re: Clue Current Thoughts

You can remove cards from a game, but not add cards. It's easy to make a shortplay version out of a longplay game but not the other way round. That wouldn't necessarily work that well because you'd still have all those extra rooms on the board, and those would likely add spaces to move between the ...
