When?

Post by boddysattorney » Mon Feb 27, 2006 8:45 pm

In case you haven't noticed by my posts thus far, I am very interested in putting the game of Clue to a storyline. I am asking in this thread when you think that the murder of Mr. Boddy occurred.

Midnight, windows clattering as a harsh thunder and lightening storm rage outside, the shadow of someone comes over Mr. Boddy's bed and...











BAM!

finally, someone else thinks a midnight murder makes sense ...


yet ... what were people doing downstairs at 12 am?

and even more: HOW DID MR. BODDY DIE?

if he was shot, there would be a bullet wound; stabbed a knife wound ... yeah they could have beaten him with the butt of the gun or hilt of the gun or candlestick ... but could someone please explain the Rope?

they could strangle him with the rope, there would be rope marks on his neck and cause of death would be strangled.

I'd say afternoon, midnight seems a bit too late.

I agree. I'm an afternoon killer, er, I mean, I think that his death is after lunch but before dinner.

I voted for Midnight only because there wasn't an evening option! But I think midnight makes sense. He's having a weekend party. Guests will be up late socializing.... having a few drinks... Indiscretions occur. Tempers flare. Maybe some guests head off to bed (uh-huh...). Others begin to disperse. Suddenly the lights go out. There is confusion. Everyone is scattered. Dr. Black is killed and his body is thrown down the cellar stairs. When he's found, there is no immediate lyapparent method of murder because nobody wants to get close enough to the body to examine it and possibly destroy evidence. Instead, while they're waiting for the police to arrive, they begin to realize one of them must have done it and start to interrogate and accuse each other. They even begin to search the rooms for clues to support their theories.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

I was always under the assumption that his body (almost spelled it "boddy") was so badly bruised by the fall down the flight of stairs, that for amateur "slueths" (the notorious six) would not be able to tell how he was killed. I also believe he was HIT with the gun, not shot with it, it makes the most sense, making it four intruments to be hit with, and the knife and rope, well, I can't really think of anything to offer to that.

Im sorry,but thats just dumb to think he was hit by the gun.


Otherwise they would of came up with a different weapon. You dont use guns to hit people!!!

My favourite set of weapons was the VCR game weapons:

One for shooting

One for stabing

One for choking

One for hitting

One for poisoning!

ACTUALLY... I can easily see Colonel Mustard beating Boddy to death with the gun - interrogation style... perhaps Boddy's tied to the chair... Mustard gets a little over-zealous with his technique...

Come to think of it, Mob Boss Green might employ the same methods.

I couldn't imagine Scarlet or the others doing it, though.

in most video games, one of the options with your gun is pistol whip

I agree, I think Midnight is too late, and the other choices are too early. I like to think that Boddy was murdered after dinner...Possibly before drinks and desserts.
Oh, it's England. Croquet on the lawn, tea in silver teapots, sherry before dinner. One simply has to maintain one's standards!
