13 Years Later (Ep #11)

Post by cacums »

This Sunday will be my 13th Anniversary on this forum. I started 13 years ago with the intention of writing a Clue series. It was cute and fine for my age at the time, but I've always known I can do better. And better, I shall do. This Sunday, on my 13th Anniversary, I will be releasing Episode #1 of the reworked, retconned series. I have an editor, a small creative team, and input from 4 other writers.

Guys and Gals, I'm ready.

- Show, don't tell.
- Every good idea doesn't need to be shared, explored, or done
- Stay on track with for the ending
- Actually HAVE an ending planned


Until then, enjoy some new characters mixed in with some old ones you may recognize if you are an old reader. ;)

Thank you. I couldn't have done it alone without encouragement and the mighty hand of CluedoKid. :)

Miss Dove, Mr. Clay, and Nurse Silver have been redone with newer illustrations.

Heads piked on playing pieces!

I know some don’t care for this, but to me it’s the single most ingenious aspect of Cluedo, followed by the naming conventions. When I discovered Cluedo existed, this aspect alone blew my mind!

Thanks for incorporating it into your game and honoring the original legacy of Cluedo!

P.S. my 11 year anniversary is coming up in 5 months. Hard to believe over a decade has passed since I discovered this site, Cluedo, and the expansion games and variations I never knew existed.

I’ve always been a fan of the heads on playing pieces designs, and would love if they were incorporated as the design of the actual playing pieces.

They were actually created for the ultra luxury Geoffrey Parker édition, in sterling silver, or pewter (the pewter of which I purchased separately).

The moment has finally arrived! I hope you all enjoy this long journey with me and these characters and of course their story.

13 years on this forum! I'm so excited and grateful to have found such a fun community.

I hope you enjoy reading as much as I have enjoyed reading others!

This all wouldn't be possible without the influence, inspiration, and brilliance of Depboy!

I was hoping someone would post that - I had seen them before but couldn’t remember which edition and couldn’t find it with googling - were they ever sold separately or did you manage to snag a set of the figures on their own?

A more mainline produced set of something similar would be great though.

It was a requote from an edit that made the post irrelevant. She was originally named Ursula but changed to Phoebe as Ursula was too on the nose.
I personally see more Fairy Godmother from Shrek than Ursula ;)

Sorry about that...

I’m a little confused about the two Dove pawns, it looks like you’re using the old version and the new version. Why is one smaller than the rest?

The small one is Fivel Dove, Miss Dove’s son.

Oh thank you. I was just looking at the artwork in the first post, and couldn’t match them up, except Fivel looks a lot like the original Miss Dove.
