Just thought this was interesting, Homegoods has a wide selection of glass sprinkle bottles that look just like poison bottles when emptied. In case anyone is interested

So I got my hands on Mystery Game! I was at the thrift store and they sold it for $2 insted of the usual $5. It was only missing two detective notes. Looks like someone and a friend played it once and didn't like it. When I'm finished moving. I want to scan the detective note, invert the color (full black detective notes take to much ink), and post it incase someone wants bigger printer friendly notes on the Parker Bros Mystery Game discussion forum.

Is it just me or does Jamie Lee Curtis (a la this years Golden Globes) look eerily like the Super Sleuth Mrs. Peacock card?

This promised much more potential than it delivered. Still an interesting concept. I’d like to see it tailored as less learning-based than fun ... maybe Clue movie trivia, or a drinking game...

You know what REALLY needs to happen? A version of the game with the cast from the movie! Why isn't this a thing? Now with it's cult following I feel like it needs to happen soon to appeal to our nostalgia before the risk of it possibly fading into obscurity with the younger generations. Maybe even have 2 ways of playing it, the original classic way, and then a new style of game play that ties it in closer to the movie to include Wadsworth and Yvette as well as the multiple victims. Maybe like a mashup between Clue and 13 Dead End Drive.

We actually saw a live shadowcast performance of Clue when we were at the Rocky Convention in Wichita a few years back. That was a trip. I still want to see one of the Hedwig casts eventually.

Someone on Etsy made little pieces (kinda like shrinky dinks) of the movie suspects and wadsowrth that you can use on a clue board. Someone posted about them awhile back. I don't know if they are still on Etsy though.

And now a Limerick...

There once lived a man named Black
Who wore all black to his slack
Oh boy, what a wonder,
Oh dear, what a plunder!
And now he's buried out back.

Glass Clue game?

Am I the only one who thinks this would make for a great Clue edition? Kind of like a deluxe 3D glass-covered edition, but a little more affordable?
