You rush upstairs. "Miss Scarlet?" you call.
"Mr. Boddy? Is that you?" Mrs. White calls back.
"Yes, Mrs. White."
"What's with all that commotion downstairs?"
"Oh, just a few more murders, that's all."
Mrs. White whines incoherently at this.
"Mrs. White, please keep calm. I have reason to suspect that Miss Scarlet is the killer. She's hunting round the house right this minute looking for us. We need to keep quiet."

Choices:
- Persuade Mrs. White to murder Miss Scarlet.
- Persuade Mrs. White to allow you to enter her servant's quarters.
- Go back downstairs.

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

"Mrs. White, I think we need to kill her. She's too dangerous!"
Mrs. White opens the door and looks at you. "Are you serious?"
"Yes."
It's a good thing you have a fairly good relationship with your housekeeper. "Fine," she says. "I'll need a weapon. Hold on." She goes back inside and comes back out a few moments later with a lamp. "Will this do?"
"Perfect," you smile. "Let's go!"
The two of you run downstairs.
"Which room should we go in, sir?"

Choices:
- Lounge.
- Dining Room.
- Kitchen.
- Ballroom.
- Conservatory.
- Billiard Room.
- Library.
- Study.
- Trophy Room.
- Carriage House.

I may have seen her run in the Study with a candlestick... After you, Mrs. White :)

The two of you cautiously go into the study. Suddenly you hear Scarlet's voice. "Die you b*****d!"
"No!" Mrs. White cries. She swings the lamp she has just moments before Scarlet has a chance to hit you. White continues to bash Scarlet with the lamp, blood starts to splash over her until she finally stops the beating. White sighs. "There. I can't believe I just did that." That's when the housekeeper notices Plum's mangled body nearby. "Argh! Did she do that?"

Your eyes glitter.

Choices:
- Murder Mrs. White with the cord or the dropped candlestick.
- Run off to get a better weapon.

"Mrs. White, you're great. Allow me to a give you a reward. With this candlestick!" You rush forward to batter her with the bronze candle holder but she knocks it out of your hand with the lamp. "You dirty traitor!" She hits you again and again with the lamp and you join Miss Scarlet on the floor with a mauled head.

Try again?

I don't know if we have time to find a better weapon before the police arrive so let's try that cord one more time.

You get a good grip with the cord in your hands and proceed forward. "What are you doing?" she snaps. "You're trying to kill me! You're trying to kill me!" She lashes out at you with the lamp in her hand and you find yourself with Miss Scarlet on the floor with a mauled head.

Try again?

(If you'd like a hint, try a room you've hardly been in)

I was wondering about that too but anyways...

Yeah, didn't think that'd work. Skip around the mansion merrily singing, "we made it! We made it!" while secretly looking for another weapon.

"We made it!" you cry. "We made it! Now let us wait for the police!"
"Yes!"
"Excuse me, I feel as though I need to better prepare myself."
"Alright. Once the police arrive we need to tell them everything. Especially about how you killed all those people."
"What? How did you know about that?"
"I saw you."
"Oh. Yes, I will tell the police everything, Mrs. White. Excuse me."

You leave the study but you haven't got long! Which room do you want to go to in order to obtain a good weapon? (Hint: Try a room you've hardly been in, a room where no murder has taken place)

Choices:
- Lounge.
- Dining Room.
- Kitchen.
- Ballroom.
- Conservatory.
- Billiard Room.
- Library.
- Trophy Room.
- Carriage House.

Nothing better to skip to than a good tune. To the Ballroom!

I thought we've been in the Lounge a million times tonight. If nothing's there, let's explore the Billiard Room.

You'd do better in the Billiard Room so you go there. There is an axe on the wall. You take it.

You go into the hall where Mrs. White greets you with a smile. The smile soon fades when she discovers the horrible implement you have in your hand. "What do you plan to do with that, sir?"

You smile. Your eyes glitter. You swing the axe, she blocks with the lamp. However, the sharp blade of the axe cuts right through the lamp, sawing it in half in a clean swipe. He grin as you raise the axe. Mrs. White screams, raising her arms in defense the best she can. You go for a full swing and take her entire head clean off. It bounces and rolls down the hall. You throw the axe back into the billiard room. The front door opens and the police immediately exclaim at the dismembered head of poor Mrs. White greeting them at the doorstep.

"Hello, officers."
"What happened here?" one of them says, as others begin barging into the other rooms.
"Mrs. White here went on a killing rampage! She poisoned our dinner drink's that she had made," you begin to lie, "and after discovering this didn't work went and picked everyone off. I managed to subdue and kill her with the axe which I just threw into the billiard room."
"Why did she do it?"
"I think she grew very, very resentful of us all. After all, she was only the housekeeper serving us rich stiffs. She lost it, basically and slaughtered everyone. You'll find her fingerprints on a lamp she used to kill my lover Miss Scarlet and on the kitchen knife she used to hack up Mr. Green and Sergeant Grey."
"I see."
"Yes. Well, at least it's all over now."
"Yes. You're a lucky man, Mr. Boddy."

Oh, how little he realises the power of that point. :wink:

THE END.

Thanks to everyone who took part and I hope you enjoyed it. It went completely off the rails but it was still really fun to do. Forgive the ridiculousness of the whole thing and I apologise if there are any plot holes (probably). I suppose the whole zany theme of it all is in the good Clue spirit, anyway. :)

Poker for sure. An ashtray would be nothing with White's Lamp of Doom
