I gotta go with the 80s thing. I liked where you were going with it. I think it had a lot of potential. But, if you're going to do Meryl, do 80s Meryl, not Meryl two or three years ago.

Go with the clipart. They are much nicer in my opinion. Also, they have an originality and freshness, compared to the celebrities who we all know.

I really, really like the clipart cards. There's nothing wrong with the others, but I've just never been fond of "real people in photos"-type cards.

Mr. Green's card has been edited. He is no longer Mr. Chartreuse.

Miss Peach and M. Brunette:

One thing though that I don't really like is the font on the cards. I can't put my finger on it, but I think it clashed with the rest of the card. Just my opinion. It's a small thing, so it's not a big deal. I still love where this is going.

I think the font you used here would look better.

I think I'm actually going to take the middle route and try to do both sets of cards, and then decide which look the best at the end of that. This'll be a process.

I like the 80's Mr. Green, Sgt. Grey and Col. Mustard a lot. Good work. While I like Mrs. Meadow-Brook's image, it's hard to get past the shoddy cut-and-paste job. I think that picture of Lansbury would work better as Mrs. Peacock rather than White.

The Clip-Art cards are some of my new favourite fan-made cards, for sure. As for the 80s cards, I would suggest changing Peacock, she doesn't seem 80s-ish. And Miss Scarlet looks a little too young and happy, but just my two cents. They're great nonetheless :)

While I still think the 20's cards are much better, I do like the Green, Plum, Grey and White cards, although I agree with CluedoKid that Lansbury would make a better Peacock.

I like the 80's cards better. Miss Scarlet looks a bit too cheery, and Mrs. Meadow-Brook's cut-out job could be better, but the others are all great.

I just can't get over kilt-wearing Mustard.

Same. It strikes me odd too. In a way, I feel as though the guy representing Mr. Green would make a better Mustard.

I disagree. I like it, it's very original.

I have - finally - come around to letting go of my original casting of the suspects. Upon looking up TV shows and pop culture in the 1980s (my previous knowledge on the subject was restricted to music and a few movies), I've decided to change it to strictly people from the 1980s. I know the idea was suggested before, but I'm going to try to stick to it.

That being said, the new Mrs. Meadow-Brook:
