Once Wavey is done with the Clue Mafia game, I think I'd like to try my hand at running a forum game. Is anyone interested?

Found the French version of the VCR game - it's the same footage dubbed in French except for the instructions where Dr Black explains how to play https://youtu.be/1NUKK3Eec6Q

The 1997 UK Travel Cluedo (Suitcase board) just arrived! I forgot that I ordered it with travel Monopoly last month.

I never realized how tiny the cards and pieces were! Now I just need to get the UK 1996 edition for 'slightly' large pictures.

Has there been any discussion on here about the Carmen Sandiego Acme's Most Wanted board game?

https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/293 ... board-game

It's a Cluedo variant starring Carmen Sandiego, obviously, based on a recent Netflix cartoon.

Does anyone know the names of the different pets throughout the Clue universe? All I got so far are:

The Black Dog (Super Sluth)
Pinkie (Puzzle games)
Mustard the Dog (Clue Jr.)
Ajax (Book Series)
Patty-Pat (Book series)

Are there any others?

Does TVM have more Cluedo music to post?

In the Clue film did the dogs have names?

Scarlett looks different when you look at her back, I--

Scarlet's arms look like they're on back to front in that picture, IMO. And Mrs Peacock looks like she's about to do an Exorcist style 180 head turn.

Women can twist their necks more agilely than men, apparently.

Even the way the neck is drawn looks painful :lol:

The Marmalade art often has awkward posing, I find.

I don't know if this idea has happened on the forum but here's a Cluedo/Clue challenge for you if you wanna make the classic game a little more tricky, this only works with a game that features just the classic 6 suspects (Scarlet, Mustard, White, Green, Peacock and Plum)

When making a suggestion; you say the room and weapon as you would normally but here's the challenge. Instead of saying the name of the suspect - you say the name of a character an actor who portrayed that suspect played either on TV, Movie, Video Game, Stage, Radio etc

Example. I enter the Kitchen. I would suggest that the murder took place in the Kitchen with the Lead Pipe by Victor Meldrew (Reverend Green)

The actors can be from The British Game Show, The Australian Game Show, The Movie and CD-i games

If the actor appeared in a show and played themselves, that does NOT count. I.E. Jerry Hall was in the Ab. Fab. movie but she was herself, that doesn't count. And obviously, you cannot say the character they portrayed in Show, Movie, Game etc BUT Lewis Collins is the exception, you can say his Victim name

Wanna make it more difficult, no repeats.
