Winchester Mystery House

Post by PrinceAlarming » Sat Jan 05, 2019 2:53 am

A few fun facts about Winchester Mystery House that pertain to Clue:
Clue inspired the name of the employee break room which is called The Lounge. I've worked there for about two years and it's the only location I've been to with Conservatories which has always reminded me of Clue. We also have a stray cat on the estate that we feed just outside The Lounge named Col. Mustard; he's an old blond cat with battle scars that fancies the company of the ladies over the gents which seems so fitting. I've also heard that Clue murder mystery parties are occasionally hosted at the mansion after hours, but I can't manage to find anyone on the estate who will really give me any information regarding that.

Amazing, thanks for sharing! I hope to visit the house someday but it's a continent away...

That is awesome that you actually work at the Winchester Mystery House - I plan on visiting one day, when I visit the US (I'm Australian).

I'm ashamed to admit that I don't remember off of the top of my head, even though I just took this picture to make a dirty joke with one of my coworkers less than a week ago.

I will investigate and remind myself. I want to say beneath the window is outside between the aviary and the cellar doors, but I'll double check hopefully tomorrow.
