I came to the interesting revelation that despite it being so broadly used and accepted, there has never been a bust murder weapon in canon - it's always been called the statuette, even if it fits the description of a bust. Added to non-canon blunt.

With an easy day to myself, did some digging and rereading old mysteries, and found some new additions

TRIPWIRE, MIRROR - CluedoKid's The Last Noel. Mirror wasn't new, but the usage certainly was.
SCALPEL, BADGE, PITCHER, CHANDELIER, PIZZA CUTTER, SCRAP METAL, BARBED WIRE, LAWNMOWER, MEAT THERMOMETER, TUSK - Found in some of CluedoAuthor12's old mysteries
ANTHRAX, CLOTHES - Cluedokid's Murders at the Château de morte.
GLOBUS - Cluedokid's sims mysteries
TREE TOP STAR, CHRISTMAS LIGHTS, GIFT - An old PeachFreak christmas mystery
LIFE PRESERVER, MUSKET, COAT HANGER, FEATHER BOA, CRUCIFIX, FISH HOOK - Some more PeachFreak mysteries
DOG LEASH - Ditto to above, different thread

In this digital archaeological dig, also started rereading The Mansion of Dr. Montgomery, remembering finding it around 2011 and being scared sh1tless but still reading it anyways. Can't help being tempted to include any weapons there since it's so emblematic of the forum, but this is a Clue weapon list

It was also the murder weapon in the "Meadow-Brook/Teal Family Murder" Season of his online series.

That's awesome. The other day I was wondering if I should bump it / ask what the ending would have been, but at the same time I wouldn't have wanted to destroy the ending.

Truly??? Lovely!
I’m tempted to do a similar forum game, I’ll be up with clue suspects. Trying to figure out a style, and if I have the patience to pull it off

Isn't a wood chipper more a method for disposal of a body rather than necessarily a method of murdering somebody? It could be used to kill somebody if you shove them into it, but it would be under extremely limited circumstances and it would definitely have to be outdoors.

NOTE: Here in Connecticut, back in the late 1980s, there was a murder case involving an airline pilot named Richard Crafts who was accused of murdering his wife Helle and then running her chopped up body through a wood chipper to get rid of it. My Dad was called for jury duty on that case (he wasn't picked to sit on the jury) at about the same time that he himself had bought a smaller wood chipper for yard work.

I think I heard of that story on a show on Netflix, Murderous Affiars.

There’s been a few horror movies/stories where live people have been thrown into wood chippers, though it might be hard to kill someone in the study with a wood chipper lol

I’ll add the meat grinder, though I agree with the general consensus on a wood chipper. Going to have to add those later, technically at work rn

Buddha statue & Katana - In the Franklin Mint game, the study was filled with antiques from East Asia, so it would be no surprise that a katana and a Buddha statue would be in there.

I think you can kinda see it in there.

The murder hornets would be similar to Death in the Clouds
I remember Cluedokid did a Clue story which could be similar to the virus. A Nurse poisons everyone and is demanding money for the cure

Nurse Placenta is definitely one of the best villains on this whole site, I loved reading through that mystery and going through all of comments eager to watch her get killed

Funnily enough, I was just thinking about Nurse Placenta yesterday (specifically about what the spirits of her former patients told Madame Rose). My favorite part about that mystery had to be how all possibilities were eliminated save for the final solution.

MMM was a really fun board game but unfortunately I doubt I'd be able to get anyone to play a game that complicated with me; people already think 12 rooms is too much. :?
