Didit, De’ath and Mystique have all been used in official sources so they exist and need to be included in the repository, regardless of what people think - mileage certainly varies about what works and doesn’t work as a suitable name and a repository like this will have to include all of them to be effective, IMO.

Also forgot that this is the current thoughts thread and not the character repository thread lol

I’ve kind of made my peace with De’ath and Mystique as well by combining them with Lady Sarah and Inspector Klein to imagine an alternate set of suspects who are all non-colour names (by combining names from the various versions). Mr De’ath I feel as well would work as a one off character in a novel or something...

Has anyone noticed the house from that Family Guy episode, “And then there were fewer”, looks like Hill House from the 1985 Clue movie?

That Tower of Terror Clue gave me the idea for De Lift Cluedo. God help us all if that happens.

A Clue game about a murdering elevator?
Sounds like something Stephen King would write, I meet he wrote about killer cars, TWICE!

Also, I remember hearing about a German musical about a haunted staircase that kills people.
If you can have a musical about a talking plant, why not stairs...

Naomi Watts appeared in a movie called Down, renamed The Shaft after The Ring came out, that was a remake of the movie De Lift about a killer elevator.

The new animal crossing game has a whole feature where you can like, decorate rooms and arrange characters to make little scenes.

I know Black said he's sick to death of animal crossing junk, but I'm wondering if you guys would be interested in a silly little one-off case made with the feature? It'd be very non-serious, just a silly stupid case
Stop winking at me, you oversexed Frenchman!

Not a video game type of guy, but I have seen some Animal Crossing rooms on Pinterest when looking for rooms design, and I have to say they’re perfect nice!
Sure, I love to see that!

I was wondering how you knew that film... :)

Tried to watch it again - it's a sort-of Dutch horror classic along with Amsterdamned (by the same director and starring the same lead actor, and that's the film that scarred me when I was 7) but... gaaah...

De Lift was released as The Lift in the Uk, Australia etc although I haven’t actually seen the original, only the remake (I kind of want to watch the original now!)

I found this on the new Clue Liar edition, looks like they've done away with the corridor spaces like on normal boards and from the looks of things. You've got the 6 New classic suspects and the 9 classic rooms but a brand new selection of weapons.

They've improved Orchid's design, I like Scarlet and Mustard too.
Green looks off to me, I don't like Peacock's design and Plum is alright

Still don't know how to play the game nor when it'll be available to purchase https://www.kidtoy.ca/fiche-produit.asp ... 2&langid=1

And some kind of gimmicky button in the center — or is that a standard feature for these liar éditons?

I wonder how this work exactly .. Clues mechanics would be impossible if people lied ...

My guess it works like the Monopoly Cheaters Edition, you have cheat cards that you have to try and pull off but if you're caught, someone hits the buzzer and you must do a penalty

Just one off the top of my head. Suggest any location you are not in
