Dinner Is Served

Post by boddysattorney » Sun Mar 05, 2006 1:21 pm

Most of us see the murder of Mr. Boddy occurring during a dinner party. However, what did they have to dinner?

And please, no one mention monkey brain's from the movie ... that was just too far-fetched

If it's England, I imagine a good old roast beef. I don't know much about food, though -- especially not English or period meals.

I assume we are thinking period, yes? 20's or 30's?

I imagine most of the guests' dishes are mostly full when they go back to the kitchen, as they fear Mrs. White's cooking :lol:
Oh, it's England. Croquet on the lawn, tea in silver teapots, sherry before dinner. One simply has to maintain one's standards!

question:

why do people think it is better for the suspects to be bad at stuff?

Mrs. White's a book cook ....
Miss Scarlet is a terrible actress ....
Col. Mustard is incompetent ....

dont you think pompous people like that would have had stronger traits that weaker ones and failure?

I don't like the idea of Scarlet being a bad actress.

I just like this idea of Mrs. White trying to be all the house's staff with hardly any help with exception of Mr. Ashe. She's got to fail somewhere, and out of cleaning the house, looking after the guests, cooking, mailing letters, and don't forget she was the former nanny of Boddy. Out of all these, cooking isn't her best talent.

Pepperoni pizza, diet Dr. Pepper, and bread sticks. This is my idea of a good meal.

If they are bad at things, they'll probably be bad at murder too. Hence, they will leave the "clues" that allow the detective (player) to solve the crime.

I believe in the Museum Caper game, the booklet mentions that they had lasagna for dinner.

But to me, that doesn't seem right.

I kind of picture Mrs. White making individual plates for each guest.

Yes, that would probably account for her foul mood.


Or, perhaps it's the same thing for nearly everybody (Plum is a vegetarian), but everyone has their own way it's got to be prepared.
