I'm loving it! :D
Oh, it's England. Croquet on the lawn, tea in silver teapots, sherry before dinner. One simply has to maintain one's standards!

I love it! I dare say that it is on par with Cluedokid's game! It is very sleek and stylish, and I've just printed it! Well done, Poirotfrmda818! Excellent!

I printed out all the boards (I'll send you the pics, Poirotfrmda818) The pieces are great too! I'm about the do the weapons but I'm going to lay them down rather than stand them up.... :)

Yes. It's a few pages back, though.

No, I mean a to-scale one, like what you've done for the ground and first floors.

That one pretty much is to scale. Remember it's alot smaller than the other 2 floors. I used that to print it out and it looks fine to me

Just to know, would we print out the same amount of lock tokens as there are lock cards?

Yes, though it is highly unlikely that all will be needed.

Wow, I love the use of silhouettes and the crisp room graphics.

This forum is full of great work. I was spending a lot of my time at boardgamegeek but they don't really seem to appreciate Clue/Cluedo.

I think it would be amazing if you could somehow set this up to be played on the forum, Poirotfrmda818. Even more so if you posted pictures, either of an actual board representing our gameplay, or of an electronic representation of same. That way, whether we've the time or ability to print out your pieces or not, we can all try it, and, among other things, playtest it to see what kinks there are to be worked out (if any).

Well if he does that, I may as well throw my intended plans for a forum game out the window.

This is amazing. I'd buy a completed version of this if you were to sell them...
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

CluedoKid,


Really? I shouldn't think so. The game play is rather different ... in Poirot's, murders are a matter of chance, whereas in yours they are a deliberate effort on the part of the player. You have the items cards, which his doesn't have. He has the locks which yours hasn't got. There's plenty of distinction between the two -- and I don't think there's any shortage of players who'd want to help both of you.


After all, with Poirot's game already done, that one could be played while yours is still under construction. Then, when Poirot's game is over, or nearly over, your game will be ready.

I second that, but since I'm almost done making my own, I won't ask, but I was going to ask how much money would be enough to put in the second effort... ah well 8)

I wasn't planning a forum game off this. but if people show enough interest, I don;t see why not. Although I don't want it to stop Cluedokid's game.
