Or are they "whatever the time is when this edition of the game is released"?

I'm working on a bit of a project right now and I'm of multiple minds when it comes to the interbellum period. I've always pictured Scarlett as an actress (I think she was described that way in the 1996 European game, and it's a good profession for her). I just got three miniatures from the Passport to Murder game in the mail - they're absolutely gorgeous and I love the 1920's setting. But, looking up many, many, many pictures, Scarlett strikes me as more of a 1930's actress than really a silent film star. More of a femme fatale than an ingenue.

And then of course, there's the issue of whether she's a blonde or a brunette...
You might want to post a thread for this with a poll. It will get lost here.
Probably, thought I was going through "current thoughts" rather than having an actual question. But I suppose I might write up a separate thread later!

I drew a couple of poses from the Clue app on my Instagram.

There was this estate sale the other day that had a 1996 Clue game for $2. Now the rest of the games there went for $5-$10, but because the owner couldn't find the lead pipe and rope, she marked it down. But when I got home, there they were tucked in the instructions the entire time! A foolish oversight indeed!

I just discovered today that Leslie Grantham died last week. :( So not only is an EastEnders legend gone, we're also down one more Cluedo actor!

Well, happy birthday to me! I haven't had a DVD player hooked up in ages, so it'll be nice to be able to stream this again.

Everyone should own a digital copy of this movie.

I encourage everyone to download VUDU and take advantage of their conversion option. If you own a DVD or blue ray of the movie, you simply enter the UPC and for $2 they give you the digital copy. If you don’t own the Blu-ray, you can upgrade to an HD copy for $5. All you need is the UPC code from the disc. Google can help with locating it. In most cases there’s no reason to pay more than $2 for an older movie.

For casual viewing, I don't mind renting/streaming digitally. But for movies I really love, I have to own a physical copy of the best quality possible (reason I'm always willing to shell out for a Criterion edition). Streaming will never consistently look/sound as good a disc, or at least no better than DVD quality. An HD stream can look/sound really good, but at the end of the day it's entirely dependent on how good your internet connection is when you're ready to stream.

Besides, I can't get a random ending to Clue if I'm always streaming it. It's a nice option to have, but eventually I'm gonna add the BD release to my library (and make room for my BD player currently languishing in storage because I hate unpacking almost more than packing).


On another note: now that I've gorged on the whole thing, I'm very down for a Westworld edition of Clue. A guest (or Ford) is dead. Which Human used which Host to kill him, and Where in the park? Could even work as another "3-D" board like the Star Wars edition.

LOL — you realize I’m responding to the fact you haven’t had a DVD player hooked up in ages right? Not about to debate the superiority of BD over streaming, or even DVD over streaming... my point was for $2, you can have a digital copy to watch any time you want rather than waiting for a streaming service you may or may not subscribe to, to schedule it.

On another note, not sure about WESTWORLD Clue. Guess I’ll have to watch the second season. I loved the first one, but not really feeling Clue for it yet. Would there be an orgy room? Haha

Fun story :D , I was going through an antique fair (looking for weapons :P ) and there was this lady selling candlesticks. So I went over and saw that she had the Diamond Princess. She came over and immediately lowered the price and told the history of the candlesticks set. It was nice, but the Diamond Prince is what is used in Clue. But then she said that she had a whole bunch of those to sell back home. She reached in her pocket and grabed out her card for deliveries. That was a good day.

There was also a nice Pepper Box revolver at another booth, so that was pretty cool

I'd like to see your collection. ;)

Just as well, for anyone interested, here are some Diamond Prince candlesticks selling at a price relatively cheap as far as I see the Diamond Jubilee set usually sell for.
