Recent collection additions?

Post by alwaysPeacock » Sat Jan 28, 2006 7:13 pm

Anbody have any recent additions to their Clue collections?

I got the 1986 edition today. It is is practically new condition (firm, shiny cards, lots of clean notebooks, etc.) and is only missing the die, but that's so easy to replace. I got that and a record ('Funny Girl,' but that's not Cue-related) for only $1.49 at a Value Village near my house.

I just made my own, and I feel very proud. It isn't ultra glamerous or anything, but I still love it. It has 38 suspects (I may have gone a little overboard with that :oops: ), The main floor has 27 locations, and after my parents go to bed, I will print out the upstairs rooms (all guest rooms). My dad doesn't like me using the printer for "frivelous things", so I have to wait until he's not home to use it.

I need to work on weapons, currently I have only about 10.

I just added a page to my Cluedo section about the International Edition of 1970. And hopefully tomorrow or so I'll get up the Cluedo DVD page.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Also, of lesser note, today, I added a "Look-in Magazine" page in the In Print section that featured a Cluedo competition in 1977 and "Replacement Note Pads" in the Cluedo subsection of the Miscellaneous section. :)

HAHA, I'm glad I'm not the only freak :) I have made several custom versions as gifts. I even thought about making a business of it, but kept worrying about copyright concerns. But I may revisit the idea:)

I saw those on eBay a few years ago. I hate myself for not buying them since I now have editions 72-86, all of which use a very similar notepad.

Can anybody tell me what is so special about Yahtzee that you can just go to the store and buy a box of score sheets, yet we have to order new notepads for our Clue games and wait 4-6 weeks for them to get to us? Why can't they just sell the score sheets for every game that needs them in packs of 3 at the stores?

You may have been looking at the "Replacement Game Pads" for Clue instead of the "Replacement Note Pads" under Cluedo. I need to differentiate the two better in my next update.

Ah, I see.

I still stand by my question about what it is that makes Yahtzee so special.

I just saw an auction for 4 boxes of replacement pads for only 4.99 w/ buy it now on eBay so I snatched them up - don't know why. If you need one, I *might* be willing to make you a deal.

As paper gets older it tends to get softer and you can only erase them for so long. After a while they just *RIIIIPPP!!!* and then you have nuttin.

As for photocopying, why waste $30 on a new ink cartridge b/c I've used it all on making new scorepads when it would be so much easier and cheaper to just go to a store and buy a box for about $4?

Today i got a copy of an old Cluedo puzzle - the ones with the window on the cover. i never noticed before, but they've got a totally different set of suspect images. I'll try to post a page this weekend.

The page is posted in the puzzle section and the suspect images have been added to the progressive suspect list in the links and info section.
