How does you family cope with your "obsession" with CLUE?

I think, while growing up, my parents didn't quite understand my fascination with Clue - I don't know that I do, even. But they always supported my collection. I kept it in a display case in our family room. It often became a conversation piece when guests came over. Nobody ever played the game with me, though...

How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Personally I would not call myself obsessed with Clue.
My parents do not really have an opinion on clue.
They will play it with me though.

You're here. How can you not be obsessed in some small way?

I never really tell my mom when I get any new items. She just knows I have clue stuff but she doesn't really take the time to know what I have...

My family are pretty bad with it. But I can't really blame them, I am horrendously obsessed beyong all help. Like, if my mum comes down wearing a red jacket, I'll say "You look like Miss Scarlet". :oops:
Whenever I ask them to play they usually say no. They hate Clue. But, I love it. So I guess they'll just have to deal with it, won't they? Thank God for Murder at Boddy Mansion and Cluedome to satisfy my Clue addiction.

Hmmmm, next we are all going to want to experience the thrill of murder. We'll all go out in the middle of the knife committing all sorts of horrendous atrocities with candlesticks and pieces of lead pipes. Sooner or later, we will all be sitting, giggling in jail as we hope that it will be our character in the envelope...

That would make a really interesting movie or novel idea, wouldn't it? :P

Huntley's crimes weren't inspired by Cluedo. God, I can still remember Huntley and his murders. They were all over the news for months here in the UK.

Anyway, ways inwhich you know your obsessed with Clue...

1. You have more than 5 Clue-related games.
2. You are a frequent visitor and member of this site.
3. You think about the characters a lot and are just amazed at how cool they all are.
4. You know who Anthony Pratt is and think he's a genius.
5. You've made a fansite dedicated to Clue.
6. To satisfy your Clue addiction, you play Clue with yourself.
7. You can argue and debate for hours on end at which suspects look the best and why.
8. Your friends and family groan and roll their eyes when you mention Clue.
9. You think about Clue at least once everything 5 minutes.
10. If you have at least 4 of these symptoms.

(Results may vary)
