Re: Clue Liar Edition Review(s)

The "candlestick" reminds me of the holder my friend used in her Miss Scarlet fanart. A bit of unintentional foreshadowing? Honestly, you're friends Miss Scarlet picture is better than the candlestick from the game Still think it's bizarre how they decided to use a stick of dynamite as the "candle"...

Re: Clue Funko Pops!

. . . My boyfriend, who has quite an impressive Funko Pop collection, thinks Col. Mustard and Mrs. Peacock will be the chase exclusives due to their "more-detailed" appearance. Miss Scarlet and Professor Plum may end up being Walmart/GameStop/Hot Topic exclusives, but I think it's safe to say that ...

Re: Clue Funko Pops!

Looks like it's just Mrs. White and Mr. Green for now! Let's hope they release all 6 in time! I wonder if they would do a version of Orchid as well? If they're going old-school and have Mrs. White as a maid, Orchid may not be too likely. (At least not until after they come out with the rest of the ...

Re: Clue(do) / TAoM Memes

Red Rum's not a palindrome. Palindromes are words that can be spelt the same going forwards and backwards. Like "eve". And "no melon, no lemon". Well, according to https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/palindrome , a word, verse, or sentence (such as "Able was I ere I saw Elba") or a number (s...

Re: Master Character Repository

Since I'm a sucker for names that play with the formula, this got me thinking. A cardinal could easily be Reverend Green's superior. Depends on whether they're of the same denomination or not. If we're talking an Italian Cardinal, that to me would more likely be for Catholicism, not the Church of E...

Re: How would you imagine a “Guest White”?

Why couldn't she be the former maid/cook of another rich person who had been murdered, but White suddenly became well-off when her previous employer passed away and left her all of his/her wealth?

Not necessarily. Depends on what color or scent the lube itself would have had.

Re: Anybody Watch Perry Mason?

By the way, eight of the Perry Mason novels (originally published between 1940 - 1956) by Erle Stanley Gardner have recently been republished in trade paperback editions.

The Perry Mason series books were originally published from 1933 to 1973; Gardner died in 1970.

A minor quibble: why so many round, red objects on the table?

Aren't the balls usually multiple colors, with about half being solid color and others being the same color but with a stipe of that color instead of a solid area?

By the way, a new Perry Mason mini-series is going to begin running on HBO on Sunday (June 21st). However, it doesn't sound like it really has all that much in common with what people might associate with the 1950s-1960s TV series or necessarily all that much in common with Erle Stanley Gardner's 80...

Back in the 1930s, Dick Tracy had a villain called "The Blank" because he had a mask that made it look like he had no face.

His real name was Frank Redrum.
