Here's the Study. (Not a great photo. Hopefully, I'll get better ones once they are all done.) Once I do the Hall, I'll be done all the cards!

Beautiful. I think the new hall looks great!
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

I admit I will be inspired by the Reinvention for one aspect of the board. In the center I will have the "Loo" (not pool!) where there will be phone needed to make an accusation.

That's an acceptable aspect of Reinvention.

Alright. I making the rooms for the board which will later be added to the board itself. I will be using my old 1996 Clue board for this project as the board itself is old and worn, and despite the sentimental value of it being my first ever Clue board, I really detest the 1996 edition. Ugly characters. Ugly board. Run of the mill edition.


Anyway, so far.

I did the Lounge too, but I'm having second thoughts on it's turn out. I'm going to withhold posting it until I decide whether I'm going to redo it. There are elements that I *like* and that is what is keeping me from deciding. I think it's the bits I don't like that will give reason enough to redo it.

I love the rooms you've done so far. This isn't my favorite edition of yours suspect-wise, but the board itself is stunning, one of my favorites that I've seen. It's spacious and elegant. My favorite is the Dining Room. The Hall has a few things that bother me (the rug being animal print and not centered and the suit of armor seems out of place), but they are beautiful rooms.

Thanks.

I say though, the rug's a suitable kind of kitsch for Boddy Mansion. The Hall should be somewhat imposing. I envisioned Boddy showing off his wealth by allow his guests to wipe their shoes on a Bengal tiger's spreadeagled fur.

Those are some of the best overhead rooms I've ever seen!! Certainly better than the 96 board, and I like that one.

Rooms

Post by Lord Caspen » Wed Dec 23, 2009 1:26 am

I do really like your rooms, sir. Well done all around. I find it fascinating, however, that you didn't like the 1996 edition. That edition is enormously popular here, and I had thought you were among the fans.

I share your sentiments, but I'm surprised.
