The Dangerous Diamond Chapters 1. You're So Jaded; 2. Fiddling Around; 3. Bowling For Dollars; 4. The Money Tree; 5. Window Pain; 6. By George; 7. To Top it Off; 8. Holy Toledo; 9.

The original series provides examples of the following:

The Case of the Barking Dog Chapters The Case of... 1. the Tree House Visitor; 2. the Disappearing Brownies; 3. the Birthday Party Clue; 4. the Chess Caper; 5. the Dusty Clue; 6. the Mailbox Mystery; 7. the Broken Roller Skates; 8. the Barking Dog

Book #14, chapter 3 ("Bowling For Dollars") has the guests go bowling in the Hall. They're deducted points every time they cheat or display bad sportsmanship. In book #2, chapter 6 ("Plum's Plasma"), when Professor Plum has just developed a cure for cuts and wounds, he accidentally injures Colonel Mustard and needs to find the room where he left the cure in time to save the colonel's life. All these can be used as clues, but keep in mind that any might also be a red herring or false clue! Red Herrings and False Clues

The word clue derives from the Middle English word “clew,” which was used to describe a ball of thread.

In Canada and the U.S., the game is known as Clue. It was retitled because the traditional British board game Ludo, on which the name is based, was less well known there than its American variant Parcheesi. [33] The North American versions of Clue also replace the character "Reverend Green" from the original Cluedo with "Mr. Green". This is the only region to continue to make such a change. Minor changes include "Miss Scarlett" with her name being spelt with one 't', the spanner being called a wrench, and the dagger renamed a knife. In the 2016 U.S. edition, the knife was changed to a dagger. Until 2003, the lead piping was known as the lead pipe only in the North American edition. Boisterous Weakling: Most of the guests have their moments. In book #2, chapter 2 ("The Challenge"), when Colonel Mustard challenges Green to a duel, Green simply smiles and says "you dare to challenge me?" only to lose a lot of his nerve once the weapons are out and they're actually pacing. Mr. John Green (AKA Reverend Green): A man of god, despite not finishing seminary, he is suspected to be involved in fraud, theft and money laundering. In her book Write Away, Elizabeth George draws a distinction between red herrings and false clues. She says red herrings are the items writers plant to deceive readers and send them down a false trail.Cluedo ( / ˈ k l uː d oʊ/), known as Clue in North America, is a murder mystery game for three to six players (depending on editions) that was devised in 1943 by British board game designer Anthony E. Pratt. The game was first manufactured by Waddingtons in the United Kingdom in 1949. Since then, it has been relaunched and updated several times, and it is currently owned and published by the American game and toy company Hasbro.

The guests are encouraged to be this in book #16, chapter 5 ("Sundae School") when they're each given a single scoop of vanilla ice cream and told to put the most unusual combination of toppings on it, with the winner receiving a prize (and Boddy threatens to make everyone eat their own creations unless the prize gets returned when he finds out it's been stolen during the competition, which the last thief does). The winner is not identified, but the combinations included salad fixings, condiments, burrito fillings and, to the other guests' disgust and astonishment, the "Cream of Washroom Sundae" — sour cream, powdered soap and hand towels, courtesy of Professor Plum. The methodology used in the early versions of Cluedo is remarkably similar to a traditional, if little known, American card game, The King of Hearts Has Five Sons. [10] However, Pratt himself said his inspiration was a murder mystery parlour game he used to play with friends in which youngsters "would congregate in each other's homes for parties at weekends. We'd play a stupid game called Murder, where guests crept up on each other in corridors and the victim would shriek and fall on the floor". [11] The country house mystery was a popular subgenre of "cosy" English detective fiction in the 1920s and 1930s; stories were set in a residence of the gentry isolated by circumstances such as a snowstorm with the suspects gathered for a weekend house party. [ citation needed] Marketing [ edit ] Ash Face: The final thief in book #10, chapter 9 ("The Thanksgiving Murder") has one from building a fire in the fireplace earlier, which identifies them. Counting Sheep: In book #1, chapter 2 ("Who Stole Miss Scarlet's Diamonds?"), while one of the guests is on their way to commit the titular crime, they narrowly avoid being caught by Mr. Green, who is suffering from insomnia and stalking through the halls of the mansion, angrily counting sheep as he does so. o Snowy Peaks: Old friends have been reunited. Tensions are running high, but whose grudge ran that deep?

Techniques to Obscure Mystery Clues (and Highlight Red Herrings) Clue "Vintage Edition" (2005, 2009), [31] also released as Cluedo "Vintage Edition", is a re-formatted nostalgia edition into a "vintage" bookshelf collection along with a series of other popular boardgames. In the Cluedo version, they continued to use the 1963 design and adapted it for the UK market for the first time with localised characters and naming conventions. When a player thinks they know who committed the crime and where the culprit is hiding, they can try to make an accusation. The player has to move their pawn to the scene token space where they think the culprit is hiding. To make an accusation you announce who you think did it and where they are hiding (your current location). The player then looks up the solution to the case to see if they were correct. If they are correct they win the game and read off the solution to the rest of the players. If they are wrong they are eliminated from the game. The rest of the players continue playing until someone successfully solves the case. Winning the Game
