Re: Master Weapon Repository

Is "Coiled" the best term for that one group? Would one normally associate some of those with the world "coiled"?
I know those weapons might be used for strangulation, but I don't know if all of them would automatically be kept in coiled form when not in use.

I was aware you had, but I was pointing out that some of them are holding weapons on the box cover, which could also "subconsciously bias the players" (especially if the box cover is visible while the game is in progress).

Re: Master Repository

I'm more interested in the mechanics of his board/card hybrid, but the art is very nice - the character's holding weapons is certainly an odd choice (does it subconsciously bias the players?) ... But then again, the box cover for the regular game has been showing some of the players holding weapons...

That should be "COVID-19" (the "19" for "2019").

Re: Master Repository

A suggestions about order of the grouping: use the order of the rainbow / spectrum to list the various colors. The traditional order would be * red * orange * yellow * green * blue * indigo * violet For the other colors you wish to make a group of, insert that group between the two colors it seems t...

Re: What happened to Boddy's parents?

. . . And the other complication - would you actually play as Batman family members? Obviously in normal Clue, you play as the suspects all accusing each other, but a Batman game would have to have Batman included - is it pushing the mechanic too much to have Batman, Robin, Nightwing and Batgirl as...

Re: What happened to Boddy's parents?

I was wondering what a Batman Cluedo might look like in the past - the suspects being Batman bad guys, the weapons being things like Joker Fish and other things from the Batman mythos. Which criminal pulled stole something, using what weapon and where is their secret headquarters? It's not as force...

Re: Most Recent Solution

I never know if that's a good thing or not, playing as the murderer - normally when I'm the murderer, I find myself being moved from pillar to post which is annoying as heck if I'm trying to get to a specific location which really doesn't help if you have specific accusation rules. But then again, ...

Amazon is currently sold out. I mean I'd say it makes sense in the midst of a pandemic; board games don't take priority. So I'll just have to wait it out.

Who here is stocked up on toilet paper? We had maybe eight rolls left, so I was keeping an eye out for it whenever I was out shopping.
