Yes, just played a couple of games, got killed both times. Would be great with the cluedo suspects.
Did you work out who the killers were?

Quick question Jamie, do you eliminate suspects who say they were alone?

This is what happened in the game I was playing.

I "LOOKED" at the murder weapon that was in the Ballroom (Screwdriver)

I find the Devil in the Conservatory and he tells me the following:
"I was alone in the Conservatory"
"The Cat had the Screwdriver"
"The Jester owes Mr. White Money."

I then leave the Conservatory and I'm murdered. (I came across no one else and no one was in the hallway at the time.)

It always works the same.

Two suspects will say they were alone at the time of the murder - they are innocent.
Three suspects will say they were in a room together, although two of them will forget who one of them was. They are all innocent too.
Four suspects will say they were in a room, but you can work out who is lying, e.g in my last game....
Four suspects claimed to be in the Conservatory
Cat said was in with Devil and Raven
Raven said Devil and one other
Devil said Raven and one other
Harlequin said Raven and Devil.

So the Raven and the Devil corroborate each other, so the killer is either Harlequin or Cat. To decide which, you have to find out who saw them with weapons. One of them will have been seen with the murder weapon.
I never bother to ask them about possible motives.

Well it could help. In your example, Cat and Harlequin could have been seen with the murder weapon. So maybe the motive is the only thing that could prove who the killer was.

Ice Pick was murder weapon.
Cat and Harlequin both were seen with weapon.
Cat and Harlequin both have questionable alibis.
Cat had the motive to kill but Harlequin didn't.

CAT IS KILLER.

There was... no actual mystery in there, was it? Great to see Paula Wilcox though!

Played Monopoly for the first time in years. Some time back I checked out the Monopoly tactics (which is not easy if you are reading American or British text but are only used to Dutch Monopoly, with the Barteljorisstraat and Neude and all). So, unlike previously, I actually knew what to do besides rolling the dice and paying rent.

I've never won a game of Monopoly in my life, and yesterday was no exception. What makes Monopoly a worse game than Mousetrap, is that at the end of both games, all you do is spin around in circles until the end, but in Mousetrap, once you've reached that stage, it's still everybody's game. Yesterday I had such bad luck rolling at the start, I was in no place to trade streets, only had the occasional street and three stations: so I spent the last half hour watching myself lose with nothing I could do about it. And can you believe I didn't even go to prison once?

Today I actually won Monopoly. :D And my token was the iron. I won by having all stations plus the cheapest little village, enough to cripple an opponent.

I haven't played Monopoly in ages, I suppose I'm just engrossed with Poker at the moment.

Don't have much heart for poker. I'm more of a bridge and cribbage person.

Wow, YES! And finally a house with an exterior that might actually work too!
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?
