Master Detective Expansion Idea

Post by Sir Shamrock » Wed Feb 28, 2018 9:50 pm

I'm working on a Master Detective Expansion pack and I'm trying to create taglines for the extra cards...
Rusty 
Mrs. Meadow-Brook 
Price Azure 
Lady Lavender 
Dr. Orchid 
Swimming Pool 
Tennis Courts 
Boat House
Gate House
Garage
Hammer 
Garden Shears 
Water Bucket 
Tennis Racquet 
Lawn Gnome 
Blunderbuss 
Axe 

Anyone got any ideas?

Prince Azure; The worldly prince has been exceptionally acquainted with Boddy's priceless trophies. He came for private viewing, with intent on trade.
Water Bucket; Mr. Boddy might have kicked it, but that would be too obvious!
Lawn Gnome; Was Bert truly the evil gnome he looked to be?
Blunderbuss; Had the musket lodged inside finally discharged?

Oh thank you. Here are some more spur of thought ideas:

Rusty; Did the gardener handle the scones at tea-time with his hands lead-stained from piping?
Mrs. Meadow-Brook; Boddy's nosy next-door neighbor has filed numerous complaints to the city over various slights.
Lady Lavender; Her life of leisure has permitted time to cultivate in all manners of potions, creams and poisons.
Dr. Orchid; Boddy's foster daughte, has spent her life designing his gardens, harboring some rather interesting species of fauna.

Let me try the suspects, just for fun (BTW There's already a carriage house)

RUSTY - Did Mr. Boddy did something up from his past?
MRS. M-B - The local gossip who knows all the village secrets and has some of her own.
PRINCE AZURE - A foreign diplomat whose immunity has just been revoked *
LADY LAVENDER - Did Mr. Boddy's etiquette teacher teach him a fatal lesson in manners? **
DR. ORCHID - Did Mr. Boddy's doctor give him a diagnosis of murder?

* I had nothing so I went with a Lethal Weapon 2 reference
** Based on Cluedokid's Lady Lavender from MMM

Hey there, Sir Shamrock. :) These suggestions are just rough 'brain storms' as they've come to me so apologies if they are really lame, and please feel free to adapt any accordingly.

If you didn't want to use the "her favourite flower is the deadly nightshade," quote for Miss Peach, you could use it instead for Lady Lavender or Dr Orchid, and then have an alternative for Miss Peach instead. Also you could adapt the nightshade quote to some other 'deadly' flower, like, say, aconite/monks hood/wolfsbane - "Her favourite flower is aconite - also known as the Queen of Poisons."

Miss Peach replacements could then include something in the realms of:
- "Named after the lovely fruit, but is she as sweet as she seems?"
- "Is Mr Boddy's niece rotten to the core?"
- "She may appear sweet, but what lies hidden at her core?"

Tennis Courts - "Was it game over here?"; "Did Boddy meet with foul play in the Tennis Courts?"
Swimming Pool - "Will your theories sink or swim?"; "Perhaps this theory/area will hold more water."; "Perhaps your deductions will hold more water at the Swimming Pool." (You could as use these for the Boat House too, now come to think of it.) Also: "There are no life savers to be found.", "Did Boddy swim his last stretch here?"
Gate House - "What lies hidden behind closed gates?", "What secrets lie beyond the gates of this house?", "Boddy may have come in, but did he ever come/get out?"

Hammer - "Did it all end up coming to blows?", "Can you hit the nail on the head with this crime?"
Garden Shears - "Was Boddy's life cut short with the Garden Shears?", "Did someone feel Boddy needed to be pruned/trimmed back?", "Did someone trim/cut the top off Boddy's plans?"
Axe - "Did someone decide to bury the hatchet with Boddy most literally?"

Hope these help! I know you're still missing some, and I'll be sure to come back if I think of any more. :)

Ideas

Post by Lord Caspen » Mon Jun 11, 2018 10:35 am

A few ideas.


BOOKEND

... It used to hold up Encylopedia Britannica, Vol A through LO; was it used to bring Boddy down?

... It normally sits at the end of the Agatha Christie section; did it also end Mr. Boddy's life?

... Boddy was born and died in this house, making this weapon highly symbolic.
It's discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit. -- Blithe Spirit, Noel Coward.
