Years ago, when I first came to this site, I also had Kathleen Turner as Mrs. Meadow-Brook. Funny.

this what i have come up with - thus far - for a possible set up for the board. The hall (denoted by the red square) would be the anchor for the board. All the other possible crime scenes will be placed around the hall's set position.

I'm considering sticking with the 1980s theme, but maybe using contemporary pictures that could pass as from the 1980s. Either that, or I have been thinking about changing the suspects from Clue Blueprints. That or going for a 1940s or '50s look. To be honest, I'm not sure what direction to go with this game. I'm working with concepts right now, so any and all suggestions would be appreciated.

For the undecided, why not have a Armory or a Studio...

You all are probably sick of seeing me put Meryl Streep in for Mrs. Meadow-Brook, but here's my attempt to fit her into this game.

hmm ... I didn't thought about that. To be honest, I had compltely forgotten about that. I'll have to see what I can do with that.

I have a few Mr. Greens - all of varying color.

They make a strong argument. I'm only worried about keeping the weapon and room cards consistent with their style.

Not to be too scatterbrained, but here is a crude attempt at whitening out the background of the Meryl Streep 80s Meadow-Brook.

I prefer the other cards. The ones with the celebrities are nice but seem overdone. The clipart cards have much more originality and are more appealing.

I vote for the pictures. The clipart are nice, but they don't really go. Good job for a first time with the GIMP.
