Hey, that's Anthony Sharp on The Young Ones! I thought I recognised him; he was the Minister in A Clockwork Orange.

Sigh... why did I have to grow up at the same time that Clue games stopped being made correctly and the forum members slowly began to fade off?

I remember the good old days of this forum when I would rush home from school and log on and catch up on a Tv Series Game, look at the board games people were drawing, follow along Cluedokid's most recent gore filled adventure, read an exciting episode of Depboy's series, and get lost in the character that I was currently playing in an RPG.

Now it seems that I just log in and make the little gold page turn white and not bother reading the new posts. I knew the forum was slowly dying out but I thought that we'd get a fresh batch of people or some of the veterans of TheArtofMurder would return. I never thought I would ever become one of the people that slowly faded away, but I came to the painful realization a few minutes ago that I hadn't bothered to log in for about a week and once I had there was only a few new posts.

I'm not complaining, because I was fortunate enough to be here during the hay day of TheArtofMurder. I'm just sad to see the slow descent of new posts and interest.

So here's to hoping the forum picks back up and Hasbro doesn't rape Clue(do) anymore than they already have. Here's to the original board game which we all grew close from. :)

Hey I'm doing my best here! But it's not like anyone replied to my Cluedo collection.

I know that personally, although I still have my Clue games together and proudly play them when I get the chance, I'm just far more into the Golden Age mysteries that inspired the game. My blog's got a fair number of reviews ranging from pre-GAD to a book that was released about a week ago... and there's plenty more reading to do!

Try GOG. And ask me if you're stuck: I'm a huge fan of the games and know them all backwards. :)

So I’m watching TV with my dad. We turn on the TV guide channel and I see that “Ten Little Indians” is on the TCM channel. I’m not sure which version it is, but I’m still curious, so we switch over to TCM. The introductory guy comes on, but it is NOT Robert Osborne. So he starts the introduction, turns out it’s the 1965 version, but I go “Let’s stay for the rest of the intro”. So the intro plays out briefly discussing the synopsis, some of the changes, etc....

And then he says that despite the changes it made…the 1965 version is the only film adaptation that uses the book’s ending.

Aaaaand cue fangirl rage. I just went “WHAT?! No it’s NOT!” At that point, we changed the channel. I just facepalmed and wondered out loud if the host or the writers had even bothered reading the book. Or heck, even the play version! I can only imagine what they'd do if the Russian version got shown on TV:

"Despite the few little changes here and there, this is the only adaptation to be one-hundred percent faithful to the play's ending."
Anyone who thinks Canadians are meek and mild-mannered has obviously never seen us during Question Period!

Had my appendix taken out yesterday morning. Luckily, it was in the early stages of inflammation, so there weren't any complications. I even got to go home the same day.
