yes. It's a shame that they seem to reveal some of the solutions...
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Michael & MBD's mentioning this thread in another thread got me thinking about how this thread began.

Boy did I find some startling poo.

First, this innocent enough idea from 2009:
kova wrote:If one of the original suspects could be dropped and another one added, I wonder what everyone would suggest.
And my own response, also from 2009:
alwaysPeacock wrote:I would never replace one of the standard characters with a new one, but if I had to (like if Hasbro execs held me at gunpoint) I would drop Mrs. White (make all the staff innocent) and replace her with Miss Peach (a rival young character to Scarlet, and going by MD, possible relation to the deceased).
...

...

... y'all ... it's my fault. I put it into the universe, and it happened. Axe Mrs. White, add another young female character, related to Boddy/Black ...

Please forgive me. Mea culpa.

I get the feeling that at least one of the higher ups knows about the forum. Perhaps our input truly does matter. :)

We did finally get the MD reprint we've been asking for since FX came out.

Dear Hasbro, More MD stuffs please. Perhaps a MD/FX hybrid. Pretty please? 20 rooms. Indoor and outdoor. Super big board. Love cacums <3 PS I want the FX tokens to appear at some point in some incarnation of Clue. My OCD needs it. Thanks bye.

Colbert did a commentary on it during his monologue. Didn't realize Cheaters Monopoly came with handcuffs players have to wear when they get caught.

But he imagined Hasbro's follow-ups to other famous family games:

So Christopher Lloyd is in a tv show called Granite Flats and interestingly he looks just like Prof. Plum from 1949

He'd be a shoe in for a new Cluedo movie, with characters based on the originals, and dressed in their colours.

That would be really fun actually. Get some screen legends like Helen Mirren to co-star, and set it in Miami or the tropics as the original movie sought to do (which works perfectly with the colors of the original game board).

So the other day I was at a board game club and we were playing Clue! By the end of the meeting, they were impressed with the amount of fun facts I gave them. Just want to say thanks because none of that would be possible without you guys and this site.

Thank you!

I'm surprised TRU didn't go bust earlier.
