Ratselfalle

Post by Mr. Sterling Silver »

Does anyone here actually own the German version of Cluedo Ratselfalle? I'm doing a research project on characters' first names and recently found this scan of the back of the box:

http://www.ilhadotabuleiro.com.br/thumb ... -11525.jpg

It's too small to read, but I'd like to know the full names given for each of the characters. I could make out "Peter Bloom," "Philipp Azur" and I think "Gunther von Gatow" and "Jakob Green," but that was about it. Looks like Mme. Monique has a last name, and Mrs. Wiesental has a first name, but I can't see what they are.

If anyone does have the game, could you make a list of the names and post it? Thanks!!

Except for her colour, Mrs. Meadow-Brook's image strikes me as a better Mrs. Peacock than the actual one.

I did the same. I even went to German eBay. Loads of scans of the front of the box, but very few scans of the back (and the few I did find were minuscule). :(

There's very little information on the Web about German versions of any of the games. I've been able to find PDFs or photos of Spanish, Turkish, Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Danish, Dutch and even Argentinian versions, but precious little of the German.

Still no luck with finding the answer to my original question, so I'm bumping this up in case there might be someone new to the board who has the answer. :)

Thank you, Clue Gamer, but I think you misunderstood my question. I'm looking for the full names of the characters. For example, Gunther von Gatow, Patrizia von Porz, Peter Bloom, etc. I can't read some of them from the scan I linked in the first post in this thread, although I can tell there's something written there. So what I'm looking for is what does it say Madame Monique's last name is, what Frau Wiesental's first name is, and so on.
