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! :D

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!

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-
Stop winking at me, you oversexed Frenchman!

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"

All of the Clue cards are done but here are an example of a few (one of each) Each card has 3 symbols

SUSPECT

Image

The First Symbol is the Suspect's Gender (Male or Female)
The Second Symbol is the Suspect's Eye Colour (Blue, Brown or Green)
The Third Symbol is the Suspect's Age, are they Older or Younger than Mr. Boddy (Mr. Boddy is 40 years old when he died)

WEAPON

Image

The First Symbol is if the Weapon is a Bludgeoning Weapon (used to hit over the head) or if it's Not a Bludgeoning Weapon (Stabbing, Poisoning, Shooting etc)
The Second Symbol is the Weight of the Weapon (Heavy or Light)
The Third Symbol is the size of the Weapon (Small or Big)

ROOMS

Image

The First Symbol is if it's a Classic Room or a New Room
The Second Symbol is the Wing the room is in (North, South, West or East) - 4 of the rooms are in the corner (the secret passage rooms) have 2 wings
The Third Symbol is simply if the room has 1 word or 2 words.

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:

Image

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:

Image

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

Image

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

The Frequent 6
Image

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

The New 4

Image

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.

Image

For Miss Scarlet, I just changed her clothes

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

A good friend of mine has drawn Arlington Grange for me which is loosely based on Arley Hall / Arlington Grange.

Image

With the new image, I changed the back of the Clue Cards

Image

My friend, Nights2Dreams, is a commission artist and if you need any art pieces done for yourself - I'd highly recommend giving her a look. https://nights2dreams.deviantart.com/

Also in terms of changes, I did also change Madame Rose's outfit. I gave her a white jacket in the same style as Miss Scarlet's and the old Lady Lavender's, a pink shawl / scarf and a black top / dress
