Love them.

Am I correct in saying that Scarlet, White and Plum are from Upstairs Downstairs, Green and Mustard from Downton Abbey and Peacock is the David Suchet version of Princess Dragonmirov from Murder on the Orient Express?

I can tell you that you are right about peacock. Since I loath that version immensely, the Princess was a good character, but was far to in charge, in the book she isn't that mobile. and Mrs. Hubbard is supposed to be "the strongest" and Mary, while played well, was just to frail and week. She's supposed to be level headed and strong. Whoever wrote that version needs a strong talking to...

But on a different note, I do like your suspects =)

Quick question.

I was playing SFX last night with my parents.
The solution was Mrs. Meadow-Brook - Hammer - Swimming Pool

Dad acussed first and got it completly wrong.
I was next to acuss and go 2 right.
The game declared mom the winner as she was the last player standing but we made her make an acusation and she only got 1 right.

The question is; who won?
Me for getting the most right or Mom for being the last player standing?

(BTW, cluedoking, has Mrs. Meadow-Brook been the killer for you yet?)

I'd say your mom wins. It doesn't matter how much she knew - you decided when you would accuse, not anybody else. The fact that you got it wrong means you were too quick to accuse. The fact that your mom only got 1 right only confirms that fact - you had plenty of time to learn more information.

"That's right!"

Yep. You jumped the gun by choice. Your mom wins by default. Knowing that she only would have guessed one element of the solution correctly is just salt in the wound of your loss; it doesn't change her win.

I knew the killer and weapon, it was out of 4 locations.

That's 3 locations too many.

I've got a new face for my lego characters. Since Pros. Frost and Mrs. Peacock both have the same face, I need to change one of them. Which do you think is better?

Sure, I haven't wrote any mysteries lately, I think I need the practice.

I just bought a Mouse Trap keychain and discovered there was a Clue keychain as well. Does anybody here have that, is it as unplayable as Mouse Trap is, and where can I get one?

I have a Disney Haunted Mansion one. It is not playable at all, but the lid opens up to reveal the whole board. It comes with dice and a couple ghosts I think

It's the coat-of-arms of my home town, Eindhoven. It depicts a lion and three horns in the city's colours, red and silver. It dates back to 1335.

I have one of those mousetrap keychains still in the package. Never opened it. I didn't realize it could really be set up like that. It totally puts the Clue keychain to shame.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?
