The Library was only used once in the British series.


You meant twice Smile (Christmas and S3E5.)


OH NO! You're right! I forgot all about the christmas special!

As for more statistics...

There were nine bludgeons.
Nine stabbings
Four stranglings
Three poisonings
1 beheading



And the gun was used never in the British one.

As well, Scarlett and Peacock were tied for the most kills.

Was it a beheading? The victim was sitting down and the killer was standing - the sword might have been blunt.

All I know is that the confession had to be redubbed because Mrs. Peacock originally said, "I didn't mean to decapitate him." The studio later dubbed it with, "I didn't mean to kill him" as saying decapitate was too gory for TV at the time.

So in other words, I think they definitely intended for it to be interpreted as a decapitation.

I just realised something! Wasn't the narrator of the movie trailer the same guy who narrated The Winds of War & War and Remembrance?

Discovered there was a Dutch mystery TV show called Moordspel, hosted by Ron Brandsteder. Here is the end part of one episode. The loser got a Video 8 camera and the winner a Ford Escort.

There's a new Legend of Zelda Clue game coming. Not sure if there's a Cluedo version. It's way overpriced tho either lack of figurines. I made a topic about it a day or two ago but it's automatically moderated. Probably due to the disgusting spam happening at the moment.

My recent fanhood of Moordspel got me into checking out the show of which the scenarios were bought, Whodunnit? by Thames Television. Moordspel's drama scenes are great, using some highly prolific actors, but there are only 6 episodes and I really need a bit more...

So I watched my first Whodunnit? earlier today, the one that has the murdered sergeant during WW2. Very tricky, especially since I'm no native speaker!
SPOILER
Wasn't aware of the possibility of multiple culprits either...

Is there a discussion about the 70s Whodunnit here?

I've just watched this, never heard of it before.
I got a few of the clues but went for the accomplice as the killer. But I worked out the location of the jewels.
It's quite fun, probably was quite innovative at the time.

Good lord...I hate how overpriced all these licensed editions of the game are. I'll gladly pay upwards of $35-50 for Catan, Mysterium, Betrayal, Ticket to Ride, et al, because those are all so well made. They actually look & feel like a premium product & earn their higher price tags.

Meanwhile, we have endless themed Clue, Monopoly, Yahtzee, etc games, mass produced with cardboard playing pieces, often lazy art design, and we're expected to shell out a premium for that?

I'm not even sure who the target audience for these games is supposed to be. A rabid Alien vs. Predator fan might want to add the Clue game to their collection, but who else? Is there really a big enough fanbase for the Zelda games that's also been clamoring to see their favorite characters & whatnot transposed into the Clue mold? Methinks not.

At least the Harry Potter/Doctor Who/Sherlock editions make some sense. Massive built in fan base, plus guaranteed crossover appeal with gamers within the franchise's fanbase. I can even see the Downton Abbey version appealing as a gift for a fan of the show who might find the idea of a Cluedo mystery at the abbey an amusing premise (meaning me and a bunch of older British women, probably).

BF tells me there are that kind of rabid Zelda fans. They'll also shell out hundreds of dollars for the three CD-i Zelda games, which are known to be bad, because of Zelda. Can't say I'm surprised.

I don't like it when Cluedo isn't about murder. For a theft or a measly excuse like this Zelda game I don't roll dice.

Hey! They're selling the 1986 Clue in Waterstones! Only they've slapped a "do" on the end and called it a Retro thing. Admittedly I'd prefer to get a copy without the "do", but...

Yeah, here's the artwork from the Retro thread:

http://www.theartofmurder.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=126742#126742

I was curious if this version ever appeared as a Cluedo brand, perhaps in Australia or South Africa?

Yeah, it kind of did for Australia, only the logo was different.

I notice they call Mr. Green as Reverend Green for their 86 version.

It makes me think, doesn't it make more sense that Reverend Green would attend Boddy/Black's party in a suit, and not in his clerical vestures?

Not for me. I don't know about the progressive church today, but in the era I picture Cluedo, the clergy always wear their vestments in social gatherings. The Al Smith dinner in NYC where everyone else is in formal wear, the clergy wears their vestments. Granted it's a catholic event, but this is a formal party hosted by Dr. Black, so I would assume similar decorum would apply.
