Professor Grapes pleaded, "It's true that your aunt did a lot for me, but I swear she was with a man earlier! I swear by my book... and all the secrets I've uncovered about the Maple family! There's so much about them that the public doesn't know. Did you know that Emmeline's mother had a stint as a dancer at a piano bar? Or that Marquess Maple had a wife for three months when he was 18? Or that dear old auntie barely slept a wink at night, petrified with the thought of being the laughingstock of England?".

After all the shocked gasps and exclamations sided down, Prof. Grapes restarted "But Miss Ruby... this secret, the one I'm about to tell you right now, the one that you can never tell anyone, might help you solve this case!"

(Jonathan Green can disprove du Lac - Ice Pick - Solarium. Cue Sir Shamrock to suggest.)

P.S. Thank you BBP for disproving the suggestions! In the future, please try to not exceed 2 suggestions in queue for me to disprove (this is more of a request than an order).

Can I just confirm something with Jonathan Green's suggestion, because BBP could disprove the suggestion of Pine - Ice Pick - Orangery, does that mean Jamie couldn't disprove?

Yes because I couldn't disprove it when you said it.

Okay, I just checked my notes. I didn't realize it was the completely same suggestion and I forgot that BBP was immediately after you when you made your suggestion. Now I feel dumb

Lady Silver watched all the people talk amongst themselves. She leaned over to Sir Shamrock, "Why isn't anyone suggesting you or me? I had plenty of reason to kill her. Everyone's focusing on the "family" or the the "staff". Bah! I'm the jealous neighbor. Where's the suspicious attention on me?"

"Yeah if we're being honest here my motive's not even that great. Doesn't really give the suggestor a story to base it off of. Who would kill someone for not being invited to a party, honestly?" Sir Shamrock replied. "But if it will make you feel better, I will gladly accuse you of murder."

"Wait no I didn-"

"EVERYONE! I think it was Lady Silver...", he looked around the room for inspiration. "Ah! With the Champagne Bottle in the Ballroom."

With that he gave the Lady a wink as she pinched her bridge.

[Sir Shamrock suggests Lady Silver in the Ball Room with the Champagne Bottle]

"Well, that's not a confession from Lady Silver. Regardless of the fact that nobody recorded her previous statement, your suggestion, Sir Shamrock, is not plausible at all," refuted Mr. Meadow-Brook.

(Black can disprove. Cue ALL players to PM me a question about who has a certain card.)

Actually, now that I think about it, what I asked for, I don't know if it's gonna be much help even if Sir Shamrock does have Tea House

My turn next (I got my result)

Mr. Meadow-Brook and Sir Maple look at each, both look like they are out of ideas
"Maybe if we make a wild guess, we'd be close to the mark" Sir Maple suggested
The two look at each and every suspect for any kind of anomaly.
One thing did stick out, it was small, very minute but it was something.
Lord Grey... he was pulling staples out of the heel of his shoe and there was a blueish green color on the groove of his hand. Are these things connected to the murder???

(I suggest Lord Grey in the Billiard Room with the Stapler)

Silence. Nobody said anything: not a sentence, not a word, not a breath was heard from any of the participants in this game of armchair detecting. Through all the Machiavellian schemes, bluffs, and masquerades, suspects, weapons, and rooms had been knocked off each guest's personal list one by one until the true solution was unveiled... or was it?

(Nobody can disprove Black's suggestion of Gray - Stapler - Billiard Room. Would you like to accuse?)

Mr. Meadow-Brook stands and walks around the room, forming a clear picture in his mind

"I got it" He exclaims with a snap of his fingers "I know who the killer is but I don't have all the pieces of the jigsaw"

The spilled drink on the Billiard Room floor was to clean away the blood
The missing Ice Pick and the small puncture wound on the side of the neck
And the killer thought they were really intelligent when in fact they were quite stupid, really disappointing for a Professor

I accuse Professor Grapes in the Billiard Room with the Ice Pick

The rain drizzling outside came to a sudden halt. The shrewd attorney had to be right: there was no other way it could have happened. Asides from the ethos imbued from his profession, each and every word Meadow-Brook used was impeccably placed in order to expose the truth:

Sunshine admitted that there was a rubicund stain masked by a charcuterie board and a broken glass of Syrah... which Professor Grapes had been drinking earlier that night!

Sir Shamrock concurred that there was a prick in Marchioness Maple's neck that he thought was from a "lone vampire fang", much to Lady Silver's chagrin. And Professor Grapes had been seen fumbling with the ice pick earlier for his New York Sour... or something more sinister!

And as for that very moment? Grapes was shaking in his seat. Not only did Meadow-Brook's acerbic words sting—the teacher prided himself on his acumen—but the dark truth was finally out in the open.

"I confess! I, Professor Grapes, stabbed Marchioness Maple with the Ice Pick in the Billiard Room! But I had my reasons! Reasons to do with the very secrets I discovered while investigating..."

(Congratulations to Black for winning Game #14 of Clue with the solution of Grapes - Ice Pick - Billiard Room! ...But we're not done yet! Cue Jonathan Green to provide us with an astounding confession!)

Oh F*** I was so close... but I had my money riding on the priest nook.

Congratulations Black, we'll shake hands after Corona. By then I may be done thudding my head on the desk. :)
