Plus, you still have to wait until you're 21 to legally do some things (at least here in the U.S.) :wink:
I'm American, so yea, one more year.
Actually, I was referring to things like being able to legally buy alcohol, cigarettes, go to casinos and gamble, and a few other things that you can do once you turn 21 but can't legally do when you're still 18-20.
That's for you American's, though - people can do all those things once they turn 18 in Australia :lol:

Well I don’t plan to do any of those things in the future, hopefully.

Well, alcohol and gambling in a casino can be enjoyable when conducted in moderation if one wishes to do so.
Avoiding cigarettes (tobacco or "other") is probably a good idea, though. (And they can be expensive as well!)

It think that Victor Madden and Reginald Madden (Peach's uncles/lawyers) from the Study Guide is suppose to be Marron, with is French for Brown. A nod to Peach and Brunette's connections, perhaps. But it does fit the color names better than Madden.

I feel like there’s some sort of pun or joke with Madden & Seine... that was the law firm that Miss Peach worked for in Clue Mysteries. But it’s too clever for me.

By the way, how would that work?

Do all the people playing link in to an internet version of the game, or would it be more of a play-by-mail version, but using email instead for anything that doesn't involve letting everybody else know (i.e. distributing the cards to people, or one player revealing a card they have to a person making a guess/voicing a suspicion in a room)?

I think it’s play via the forum/pm but I have never been involved in one either so I am not sure :?:

If you're referring to this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19792
I don't know if it really went any further than just the talk stage.

Yeah that was the thread - I wasn’t following along too closely as I wasn’t intending to play but I knew there was talk about setting one up
