From the way you do your Clue notesheets and your way of thinking, I'd say you're clever enough

Would make sense, since "Lead Piping", sounds kind of silly, compared to just "Lead Pipe".

I had a Clue the Movie themed dream last night, that Clue had two more endings.

In one ending, Professor Plum is the murderer and is the real Mr. Boddy. Wadsworth reveals this when he gets the professor to slip up, when he says, "When we went to the billiard room, Mr. Boddy ran to the kitchen." To which Professor Plum says, "No I didn't!" Then realizes his mistake.

In the other ending, the murderers were Mrs. White and Yvette working together. They staged Yvette's murder to create sound effects for others to hear, but really was a ruse. They then succeed in poisoning all the others to death. The last shot in the ending is Miss Scarlet convulsing and collapsing into the pile of everyone else dead and Yvette and Mrs. White standing over the corpses gloating.

I went to see the Kingsman last night, fantastic movie - the only reason I post it here is because Charles Dance is in it and he looks fantastic for a Colonel Mustard

I've been thinking. Cluedo DVD might have been the best mystery game in the Cluedo series.

We NEED another Clue/Cluedo game where you DON'T have to rely on the Clue cards to solve the murder

Take Awkward Guests for example (if you've not played it, I highly recommend it)
The game comes with 300+ Evidence cards, each game you'll only require say 50 or 60 BUT even then, you'll only need to see around half of the cards to be able to solve the crime

Maybe it's because the Dutch version was so terribly done, but it's really problematic if you've solved 3/4 and still somehow need to find the fourth card waiting in the stack.

I could do one, if you guys want.

Most because I want to prove my worth of joining this forum.

Also, does anyone have any footage of the sound effects from the "Clue" 2008 game, they're my favorites.

OK, bought it a long time, and gotta say that I only enjoyed one of them, but that's just me.

I did a bit of research on St. Hugh's College in Oxford, the school where Boddy got his Doctorate in Anthropology in the 2000s game.
He attended there for 4 years (1914 to 1918).
However, this isn't possible for St Hugh's was an ALL WOMEN'S SCHOOL during that time. They didn't become Co-Ed (accepting both male and female students) until the 1980s.

How did they (Hasbro) miss this fact?

Don't know, man.

But I gotta give props to you, for doing the research, that Hasbro couldn't.

I mean, they thought that always accusing a white housekeeper in a board-game, would end discrimination.
