I could picture Mr. Green with Brass Knuckles but it's more of a thugs weapon. I feel the Cluedo characters have a bit more class.

There's a number of stories behind this photo.

The crossbow was bought by us in Switzerland. Shooting it for the first time was underwhelming indeed. After tightening the elastic, loading the arrow and making sure no living creature was in its path, we fired it. It was launched and landed a magnificent handwith away from the crossbow. Subsequent shots gave the same result.

One birthday later: my father was familiar with the range of the weapon and wanted to demonstrate it to his mother, who didn't know of it. He aimed it at her in an effort to scare her, but decided against it and aimed it to the opposite end of the lounge instead.
The arrow flew straight across the room, smashing a sherry glass.

So, why is the biro there?
In 1991, a woman in Leiden was found dead in her home. The cause was a black Bic ballpoint pen, 14 cm long, that had entered her skull through her right eye socket and had penetrated quite deeply: the end of it was halfway of the eyeball.
In 1995, the woman's son was arrested, as he allegedly told his psychoanalyst that he had killed her by firing the pen with his crossbow. He was tried and convicted for murder, but acquitted in appeal because after extensive testing, court found it would not be possible to cause the injury with a crossbow: among others, the ballpoint was still intact: if you would shoot a pen through a skull at considerable speed, the point and ink tube would get more speed and leave the plastic cartridge. Court believed the trauma had been caused because the woman fell into it.
In 2001 a neurologist tried it out himself and found it impossible to get the result by falling into it, because the pen went in too far: by falling into it, the nose and forehead would make sure the utensil wouldn't penetrate so deeply.

I am updating my weapon collection with some welcomed new additions.

The start, here is the candlestick. What's this for? Very Happy

Very nice updates to your collection! I see you were inspired by your acquisition of an original 1st First Edition of Cluedo!

Indeed, thank you! Though it won't be totally accurate. I have the Clue wrench, and the gun definitely won't be the Cluedo pistol.

Meanwhile here's the rope. This I've had, that I stole from a previous workplace's stable area. Smile

CK, I like the look of your rope.

It looks suitably rope-y.

It's a good looking rope XD

I was walking home from high school and this was this great dirty wrench lying in a worker's toolkit. I could not resist but to take it.

This horseshoe, I got while in Mexico.



I suppose I can mention it's interesting to me the different locales I find these weapons. The wrench and rope were found by chance here in Canada, the wrench in a toolkit on the street and the rope at one of my past workplaces that involved horses. The candlestick is also from Canada, the east coast, and the lead pipe is straight from England.

Im more basic, sticking to the classic six. I still need a lead pipe. My current one is just a plastic stand in. The rope I stole from a friends halloween cowgirl costume. The rest are all from eBay...
