I'm don't know for certain, but I really don't think you can actually do that. Not without lots and lots of documentation.

Then Maybe a Elephant Tusk. Boddy kept it as a Trophy,and It could be used to stab
someone. But you can also do a Posionus Gas Bomb.
Everyting else is going awesome! Very Happy

Hey, it's been a while since there's been a new board game project, I'm looking forward to seeing what you have in store!

5) In my opinion - A Planchette does not look sharp to stab a person.


Honestly I'm half posting just to give my explanation behind that. It wasn't supposed to be a knife, it was more like a strange brass knuckle-esque weapon in my mind? Like you loop your middle finger through the hole in the middle, use your others to hold it still, and use it as a melee weapon.

though i totally get that explaining how it could be a weapon kinda hurts the idea of it being a weapon -3-

This isn't the final version, merely an "Alpha" board design - I have many artistic friends that can help make this looks a *beep* of a lot nicer but I welcome all thoughts and opinions on the board.

Thanks, I can't take full credit for that one. I think Cluedokid had that idea first but I know that was Black's occupation in "Will You Survive"

The Magnifying Glass for the back of the Clue Card was made by my good friend TheGeckoNinja, he is a commission artist, highly recommend giving him a commission if you need any artwork done. https://thegeckoninja.deviantart.com/

The second deck of cards has been created:



These cards work like mini events. After an unspecified number of turns have passed, the Mr. Boddy player will draw a card and read it out loud and all the players who apply follow the instructions.

Here is an example of one of the Boddy cards:



Like in the VHS Game Atmosfear (Nightmare in the US) When Mr. Boddy asks for a certain player (Whose turn is it, Highest number of clue cards etc) The corresponding player must answer with "Yes Mr. Boddy" or they will be punished.

It could be in a manor of different ways.
- Miss a turn
- Return to start
- lose a Clue card

I'm currently writing up the character profiles for the game. If all goes to plan, I can start posting them early next week. (The weekend if I work fast)

So I thought I'd quickly show you the character pawns for the game. What could I use that's small, easy to pick up and move around the board, could fit within spaces, very cheap and comes in a large range of colours?

Something which I use a lot for my mysteries. LEGO.

Last year, I sold all of my LEGO for a tidy some so I needed to get some more. I used the website BrickOwl (link down below) which allowed me to buy whatever LEGO pieces I needed, in what ever condition, colour etc from any seller around the world.

Here are the Original 6



Top - Scarlet, Mustard, White
Bottom - Green, Peacock, Plum

The Frequent 6


Top - Peach, Brunette, Rose
Bottom - Grey, Lavender, Black

The New 4



Top - Boddy, Midnight
Bottom - Celeste, Redwood

For these 32 pieces of LEGO (2 of each of the 16 colours) I only paid about £2

Just need your opinions on a couple of things, I decided to redesign two of my suspects. Miss Scarlet and Lady Lavender.



For Miss Scarlet, I just changed her clothes

For Lady Lavender, I made her younger and I made her wear a more formal dress
