Mansfield Park: Mr Boddy

Before the curtain has gone up for Act 1 of Lovers' Vows, there is a flurry at the doorway upon hearing a scream.

The show has been postponed as we must attend to another matter at hand.

A body.

A dead body has been found.

An investigation will begin in four rooms of Mansfield Park. Each room will house a detective who happen to be part of our distinguished guests this evening - Hercule Poirot, Miss Jane Marple, Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson.

As the guests are separated into the four rooms, Mrs Norris whispers to you...
Mr. Boddy is a painfully trusting host whose nature is to generously forgive his guests for attempting to commit any crime, including murdering himself. -Boddy bio

  1. *it is rumored...
    That Miss Scarlet is spending some time at Mr. Boddy’s mansion, hoping to work her way into his money.*

    I have to speak with Miss Marple! This is all very suspicious...

  2. A murder?! How outrageous! Luckily there are so many sleuths at hand.
    As for Clue: I played it a lot both the baordgame, the computergame and even a puzzle game you can play by yourself. I especially like the board and the puzzle game. I think I saw the movie, but it was so long ago I'm nt sure if it was Clue or another movie that was a lot alike.
    My owner once participated in a murder mystery named 'The butler did it' btw. It wasn't as easy at it sounds to solve the murder as the murder was at a butler convention.

  3. I still play the board game with family from time to time, and now my sister even has it on dvd, which makes for a fun family night. There is now even a Clue game on that is pretty fun!
    The movie is one of my all-time faves, and though most choose Miss Scarlet, I prefer Mrs. Peacock as my token when I play.


  4. I love Clue! It's my favorite board game. I like the movie, too but prefer to play the game.

  5. Ye Gads!!!! a BODY, you say?!

    When the kids were young, we played the board game a LOT, but that's been ages ago. I've never played any other version e.g. online, etc

    But, even though I've never seen the movie, there is an older movie (kind of a clue spoof) with Peter Sellers (of original Pink Panther fame) called *Murder By Death*
    If you liked Clue, you'll love this movie!

  6. HAHA! I play clue all the time! I love the movie!! 1+2+1+1!!

    Now about the dead body... do we have any suspects?


  7. I love Clue. Yes, I've played the original and we've recently been playing Clue: Master Detective. (I like to be Miss Scarlet.)

    I saw the movie along time ago and remember enjoying it. I want to see if our library has it sometimes, and watch it again.

  8. Clue is my fave board game. I have also played the video game and I have seen the movie tons of times! LOVE IT!

  9. Clue is one of our most favorite board games for family game night. When we go to the beach, it is the first thing on my list to pack. We have played both the board game and the video version. Our favorite has always been Clue Master Detective as there are more rooms, weapons and people. My kids learned to play as soon as they could learn at someone else's elbow. My youngest played partner with me for years before we'd let her play by herself. Now as she knows all my tricks, I refuse to play on her right and have had to come up with ways to throw her off the scent. A master player can learn as much by watching what others note down and by the questions they ask as by the actual cards they see.

    I did not realize that there was a series of books based on the game.

  12. I have only played the board game (wasn't even aware that there was a video game and movie version). Clue is our family's favourite borad game, we could play it for days with my sisters when we were younger :-)

    I loved that feeling of being the mystery solver :-D

  13. Have you ever played Clue? Yes! I love Clue! Especially the board game. We have played the older versions and the redone versions so often! It is definitely a family christmas favourite

    If so, which - the board game or video game? I have played both versions of Clue but I prefer the board game - more interactive I reckon

    Also, have you seen the movie? No, I didn't know there was one!

    And what did you think of them? I <3 the board game

    I wanted to be a detective when I was a kid because I had a knack for figuring things out quickly :)

  14. I own the game Clue but have never played! It requires at least 3 people and my hubby and I haven't been able to find others to play the game with us.


  15. I have played the board game, played the video game, and watched to movie. I loved them all. It was so funny.

  16. yes, we have the board game (love the classics) and the dvd, and i thought the movie was a riot!
