Clue Current Thoughts

Post by fendue » Sun May 31, 2009 5:12 pm

Just like the "Current Thoughts" thread in Misc., this is for any current thoughts related to Clue. Simple as that.

I wonder if Anthony Pratt would murder Hasbro with the lead pipe?

Wouldn't this woman make an awesome Miss Scarlet?

Possibly... maybe if she was an inch younger...

Thanks! It's pretty cool. The game my brother and I played earlier was Colonel Mustard with the Lead Piping in the Library.

I've been wondering about the progress (or lack thereof) on the Clue movie. No news is good news? Or the exact opposite?

I disagree. I don't think Scarlet always has to be this young 20-something. I like the idea of 40 or late 30 year old Scarlet who's more of an experienced saucy madam if slightly older.

I agree. Though that image doesn't look that old. I'd say early to mid thirties.

If one of the original suspects could be dropped and another one added, I wonder what everyone would suggest.

I saw this picture too, and I thought the exactly same thing
Oh, it's England. Croquet on the lawn, tea in silver teapots, sherry before dinner. One simply has to maintain one's standards!

I would never replace one of the standard characters with a new one, but if I had to (like if Hasbro execs held me at gunpoint) I would drop Mrs. White (make all the staff innocent) and replace her with Miss Peach (a rival young character to Scarlet, and going by MD, possible relation to the deceased).

Huh

Post by Lord Caspen » Wed Jun 03, 2009 1:26 am

If you think about it, the male/female ratio is off anyway, when you think of dinner. There should at least be as many female guests as male, though for a "proper" dinner, there should be an equal number of each gender, including host, so actually the original game is shy two women. Replace Mr. Green with a butler character and change Mrs. White out of her maid outfit and into something more guest-y ... and then the ratios come out just fine.

You'd have Boddy at the head, Peacock on his right, Mrs. White on his left, Plum on Peacock's right and Mustard on White's left, and then Miss Scarlet at the foot.
