Two more suspects, bringing me to my initial goal of 22 so that after the victim and designated non-suspect have been selected, there will be 20 possible killers (and, as per the game's procedure, there will be 10 women and 10 men suspected). http://i422.photobucket.com/albums/pp310/photobucketmunit...

Thank you all. I really like them, too. This is the first time I've included a Madame Rose along the lines of the canonical one. For some reason, the handle didn't show up when the card was resized, but I assure you that it is there. I may actually change Mrs. Meadow-Brook and a few others before th...

I think that the weapon tokens should match the weapon displayed on the cards. I've never seen or held the token displayed in the first post, but I think that I would much prefer it to the yellowed plastic rope.

I will look into that. I really like how the suspect/victim cards are turning out. Although far from finished, this is how they are shapring up, thus far: http://i422.photobucket.com/albums/pp310/photobucketmunitzer/Other/Set1.png http://i422.photobucket.com/albums/pp310/photobucketmunitzer/Other/Se...

Do you mean Mrs. Meadow-Brook is like the Meadow-Bank School from Cat Among the Pigeons ? exactly. From what I can gather, she is the closest thing to Agatha Christie. I may be standing on my own soap box here with no one to back me, but I'm going to say it all anyway. Mrs. Meadow-Brook is a two-di...

Hmm ... I, too, have had issues with the concept of the board. If everyone was criss-crossing one long hallway through the mansion, someone would be bound to see something suspicious. In term of the movie, it is passable because, as it has been stated, it's a comedy with three possible endings. Howe...

As do I, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to carry such a style through the entire game, but I'll look into it. I am having some luck finding weapons, but I worry that a ballroom card with a piano silhouette will come off as cheap, lazy, or both. I replaced the original Mrs. Meadow-Brook and Lady Oa...

That was the effect that I was going for. I really liked the Cordovan card, but a major problem with that design is consistency. I would like a solid white background, but that is rare to find. Also, especially with the female cards, it is hard to find variety in body shapes. Thus, I fooled around w...

Messing around with card designs, this is what I came up with. Of all of them, I like Cordovan the most because of the clean white background. However, I like the almost over-the-topness of Mr. Boddy (his card I actually just cropped the head off). http://i422.photobucket.com/albums/pp310/photobucke...

Miss Saffron looked around. The air in the greenhouse was humid, and it gave her the uncomfortable feeling that she was being watched from all directions. Hunched over, she made her way through the glass building, trying to keep her hair level with the potted plants. Mr. Meadow-Brook, a few paces ah...

I was browsing images today, and I came upon this one, which seems to me what Miss Peach could have looked like if she was included in the Franklin Mint game. Maybe with a less vibrantly orange dress, though. http://i422.photobucket.com/albums/pp310/photobucketmunitzer/Other/FranklinMintMissPeach.jpg

With my list of suspects, I am currently struggling to figure out which direction I want to take with this game. I have a list of 22 possible suspects/victims. I like having a lot because it will make it easier to do a mix-and-match or decide-for-yourself type of alternate gameplay. The problem I am...

The new and hopefully final board: http://i422.photobucket.com/albums/pp310/photobucketmunitzer/Clue%20Murder%20at%20Sea/Board4.png Yes, the railing doesn't match exactly at the corner of Miss Scarlet's staring space, but I've tried enough times to get them to match and remain sane, so it's good eno...

The board is rather bland, but I have yet to unfold a Clue board and be in utter awe of the rooms. Compare the board of what should be an English mansion to the Griffins' house, and there is hardly a difference in the furnishings. Agreed. However, the point of doing these themed games is quite diff...

Re: Detective of the Year - 1980

That is a really interesting find. The third picture with the lady and gentleman on the stage is rather peculiar. Was there some sort of Clue-themed presentation? I recall watching a YouTube video about Cluedo tournaments where competitors donned suspect-themed outfits. Even though Clue could easily...

A group I am a part of is considering making a silent film, and I'm considering proposing Clue as a basis for the plot. However, I'm not exactly sure how it would shape up ... any thoughts or opinions?

I could say many things about this game, but I choose to say only a few things. - The best part of the game is in the instructions where Meg says that she she thinks it was Brian and Peter tells her to shut up. I think that was a good way to incorporate the concept of Clue with Family Guy, keeping t...

Since I work more or less exclusively within PowerPoint and use AutoShapes, I couldn't crop the board until I had finalized the doors and entrances, etc. That's why so much was wasted on the edges. It will be trimmed to minimize extra sea space once I put the railing around the ship. And yes, I do f...

Of course ... without murder, this entire cast would be dreadfully boring; petty at best.
