Well, in that case, you'll need to be making a box for it all too!
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

So, have you done any more of the suspect bios, yet?

Not really. I've got my ideas but haven't written any more. I'm currently working on the box.

Just bought cardstock.... I'm going to print out the cards, re-print the pawns and weapons...


Are you laminating the notebook, so it is re-usable... forgive me if you've mentioned this already...

I did laminate them, but you can just use pencil and erase.

I did a lot of cutting and printing work... lets just say all I have left to do is the lock cards (which are printing as I'm writing)... 8)

I had some trouble lining up the cards with their card backs, but after the third attempt I got it to work.... :)

Only one nitpick in the whole game.... isn't it an unfair advantage for Senator Gold? :|

Otherwise, this is my favorite game and I'll tell you how our first game pans out... :)

Well I do think I said before that that door is locked at the start of the game. I haven't posted the complete rules yet, only because I haven't completely worked them out yet.

Did Green's bio:

Mr. Leonard Green was always something of a rotten apple, ever since an early age. He and his best friend, Alphonse Brunette, were always lying and cheating to get what they wanted. And when Green took over the family business, an art dealership, he got Brunette, a talented artist, to copy paintings and sell them as the originals. For years things went great until Mr. Green got a call from a certain Mr. Boddy wanting to talk over a deal. A week later, Green had sold Boddy a Picasso that he told him was the original. Boddy, being the fool that he is, suspected nothing until his neighbor, Dr. Black, invited him to dinner, and hanging over the table in Black’s dining room he saw the very same painting that he had bought from Mr. Green. When he asked Black where he got the painting, he handed him Mr. Green’s business card. Outraged that he had been duped, Boddy confronted Green about the paintings and threatened to expose both him and his partner, M. Brunette, as frauds.

Ok, I just played my first two games. The first one was with the rules I posted earlier, which was ok, but things got too confusing. Then I tweaked the rules for the second game that made it faster and more fun, but it's really late right now so I can't post them and I'm gone all of next week so it will have to wait until next week.

Am I the only one that has caught this mistake? :|

From Balcony to Patio... I noticed that as my family was laminating the cards and I counted 19 rooms, one of the patio cards got in the pile... Just thought I'd let you know... :)

Anyways, here is my basic idea for a box cover, though I think I'll still change it. This is just a prototype.

Scarlett looks a bit fuzzy, because it's red against red. Put her in Sands' spot, and she may work.

Change the commas in the phrase on the cover into full stops, so it's:

One Evening. One Murder. So Far...

It's been a while, so I've been wondering- what are these rule changes?

Oh, I completely forgot to post them. Anyways, the changes I made were:

-When a murder occurs, and after you divide your deck into suspects, weapons, and rooms, you only give the top four cards from each pile to be re-shuffled. When the whole decks were re-shuffled, the game went be to quickly with only one additional murder that would occur.

-Everyone starts with 5 Investigation cards at the beginning of the game.

-Before the game starts, draw 10 lock cards and lock those doors, then re-shuffle all the cards, even the ones you drew.

Thanks! So, how have your past games gone? Who were the victims, and who was the killer?
