Seven Pines, the real Boddy Mansion (Clue VCR)

Post by Jonathan Green » Sun Mar 29, 2020 11:38 am

I found Boddy Mansion from Clue VCR!
This is 'Seven Pines', on 97 Larch Row, Wenham, Massachusetts. Remember that Clue VCR doc on YouTube, the creator of the game commented on the video, and I happened to ask where was the mansion located. She respond saying it was in Wenham, MA

Why couldn't they call the Conservatory the Lounge. Why couldn't they use the actual Conservatory the house had or use the greenhouse. Also, since Seven Pines has a Office, couldn't the Study be in the film/game?

I think they felt the conservatory had a distinctive Clue feel name-wise. Especially since they lacked other identifiable Clue room sounding names like the Billiard Room and Ballroom. Also, I think that room they used for the conservatory they meant to go for the 1972 treatment of it being a music room.

But it doesn't have any instruments. Just a few potted plants. If they wanted to do that, it should have look like this:

I haven’t seen that slot machine picture before - anyway, nice pictures of the real mansion that they used in the VCR game
