I think I'm losing my touch, in fact my parents are too.

Super Cluedo

Stables - Poison - Miss Peach
Dining Room - Revolver - Miss Peach

Neither game was solved correctly.

I've played a few rounds with the 2016 edition, and have yet to see Dr. Orchid come up as the killer. Out of six games, Mustard has been the killer 3 times, followed by one instance each of Scarlett, Peacock, and Green. I have little real competition around here when playing, so all but one of these games have been wins for me.

So tonight the AI in Clue Classic just whipped my *** with a lucky guess (or something like that) on its second turn: Green, in the Hall, with the Rope.
"But look what happened to the cook!"

Still hasn't been Orchid for me either. Actually, the killer order so far for me has been:

Scarlet - Mustard - Mustard - Plum - Plum - Mustard

I introduced Clue to friends in Mexico. We played the 1963 wooden Nostalgia edition. I had lost the dice, so we played using the 9 point MABM method.

We played 3 rounds -

Professor Plum with the Knife in the Lounge

Mrs. Peacock with the Knife in the Conservatory

Professor Plum with the Revolver in the Library

I think I'm losing my touch at Cluedo :( - I played the SFX with my cousin, we both guessed wrong.

It was Swimming Pool - Water Bucket - Miss Scarlet

We both got the murderer wrong. I said Prof. Plum and he said Rusty

Cluedo SFX - Still surprised it still works (hadn't had to change the batteries in 14 years when I first got the game)

I was Miss Peach / Dad was Lady Lavender / Mom was Lord Grey

My hand was Mrs. Meadow-Brook - Miss Scarlet - Garage - Gazebo

I accused Swimming Pool - Water Bucket - Reverend Green 2/3 Correct

Mom won by saying Swimming Pool - Water Bucket - Professor Plum

So the 4th was my birthday, one of the few occasions where I finally get to play Clue - handwrote the notebook and I (Scarlett) got to play with Dad (Mustard) and sister (Plum). Dad doesn't win often, sis and I are often very competitive. Lately it has been my sister's flaw since she tends to accuse before she's 100% sure to prevent me from winning - hasn't played out well a lot.

Our first round went quickly. My sister as Plum was lucky to land in the crime scene: study on her first round, AND was shown the result by the second player she asked. So after the 11th round the game was over. Plum - Lead Pipe - Study Very quick, so we decided to play another game.

This one was a bit nasty - sister had stopped really paying attention, Dad asked once for three things he had by accident AND asked for something I'd already shown him. I wasn't too much on a move. After the study incident I had a similar experience, being Scarlet I started in the lounge and didn't get to see it on my fist turn. Dad asked for it in the round when he accidentally asked for three cards he had himself, so I was very keen on knowing for sure whether it was the lounge or not before I left there. After 4 turns of asking the lounge, Dad finally fessed up and showed it. Grumble.
Very stupid mistake that led to the race to the crime scene - weapon and suspect were known by me and my sister (and we knew that the other also knew).
I was taken to the library during my father's turn, I stayed there and asked for three cards - no clues shown. It had to be it, so I accused... White Wrench Library.
Turned out my sister failed to show. It was the billiard room. Dad wins by default.

Those days...

That's why I'm so happy to play Clue out here, if we ever get the chance to play again...

I actually did it.

I'm usually Ms Scarlet. I have a trite question - when possible I ask for Scarlet - Wrench - Lounge at some point, usually my first turn since I'm Scarlet and begin my rounds in the lounge.

Yesterday these three cards were all in the envelope. I actually won Cluedo on the first turn of the game.


After that we had a less exciting but still short (10 turns) round of White - Rope - Billiard Room.

My Dad rarely wins at Cluedo (if anything, he wins via tiebreaker) but he is the only person in the family to win at Master Detective on the first guess. (White - Rope - Garden / Courtyard)
