I loved Clue! I will play! Prints and digital paintings are fine.
You remember the board game, Clue, don't you? I've spent many hours of my life - and not just in my childhood, either! - playing this fantastic murder-mystery game (not to mention watching the movie!). And so now I'm hosting a swap dedicated to it - but of course with a twist.
Mr. Body is dead again. But instead of being found murdered in an old mansion, this time he's in an amusement park!
Create your own murder suspects (or bring back your favorites!), weapons, and locations! Is it Mr. Green at the Ferris Wheel with the Poisoned Cotton Candy? Or Miss Shell Pink with the Mechanic's Wrench at the First Aid Station?
-Please name (and costume) your Suspect(s) by colors.
-Please try to think of Weapons that one might find in an amusement park. (Feel free to be creative. )
-Please limit locations to ones you might find in an amusement park. (ie: Rides or park utilities.)
-> Inspiration link: Clue Fan Art (Please do not feel constrained by the 'traditional' Clue card set-up, however. )
Before I send out the cards, I'll put each participant's name (except my own) into a hat. The winner will receive a bonus card - Mr. Body himself!
-> Unlimited participants.
-> Sign-up by January 1st.
-> Please sign-up in the thread.
-> International participants are welcome.
-> Number: 3/3, 6/6, or 9/9
-> Due Date: January 10th. (Cards must have arrived at my mailbox!)
-> Mediums: Original illustrations/paintings, prints of digital work, or original prints are welcome!
(Please ensure that if you are making digital or original prints that each card you send is unique. Ie: Don't send 9/9 and have only 3 unique cards in the bunch!)
-> Identification: Please write your username on the backs of your cards (or indicate clearly on your package).
-> Packaging: Please use plastic sleeves to keep your cards rain-safe!
-> Postage: No envelopes necessary! I have plenty.
US residents, please include postage. I'll cover it for everyone else. (If you have US postage, however, please send it along!)
-> Please include one "Suspect" card, one "Weapon" card and one "Location" card for each set you trade.
(Ie: 6/6 would have 2 Suspects, 2 Weapons & 2 Locations. Etc. )
-> Please indicate whether or not prints are welcome. If you do not specify, it is assumed that prints are welcome.
-> Please send me a PM or email for my address when you are ready to send your cards.
-> Please PM, email or post in this thread if you have any questions.

I am totally in - what a innovative topic. I am ok with prints/digitals. My partner and I play clue with her daughter who's 6 - she is totally into it!! She'll be super interested in the cards that people make for this. She'll probably want me to make her an amusement park clue board so we can play!! Kids are awesome - I'm guessing that this will bring out the kids in us! :P
This sounds like huge amounts of fun! Sign me up! I love Clue, although I haven't played since I was MUCH younger. Love the movie too.
Amerasu, Artyiagirl and TabLynn - welcome to the game.
Artyiagirl - If you ever make an Clue Theme Park game, you absolutely have to share with us!!!
OMG! Yes...two things that I love combined in a totally cool way!
I am so in!
Professional Dreamer studio
Excellent! Glad to have you, Chronata!
I'm totally geeking out on this, you guys. I've made a spreadsheet in Google Documents. XD; That's Type A behavior from someone who is throughly Type B. XD; And as soon as I start getting returns (and I don't expect them for awhile, mind you), I'll have a specific Swap Box to keep everything in so they don't get mislaid. I may even seperate the cards with index cards of my own. :o
Furthermore, I'm looking for a stamp or might make a stamp for nefarious purposes of my own. > : D
What wonderful idea!
I would love to join!
You're quite welcome to join, WhiteMoth. Added you to my list at the top and to my Spreadsheet.
To those already signed up and/or to those who are considering joining this swap, but haven't yet...
Would extending the due-date from December 10th to January 10th be better? Or should I leave it as-is? I'm open to either due date - so it's up to you guys! :o
either is fine for me
Since it's been a few days (giving people who don't visit the forums about 10x a day like I do... >_> ) since the last post, I'm going to assume the majority is fine with the current due date. XD
If towards the end of November people are running out of time to get the cards done, please feel free to ask for the extension. I know how things get around the holidays!
I'll be working on my cards for this swap soon. X3 Has anyone already got started? (I wouldn't expect anyone to have! There are 10 swaps due for December/the last day of November alone!)
I have my sketches for the swap, but I haven't started the coloring process. So far, I have the Blue Barker for a suspect, a candy apple for a weapon and the Fun House for a location. I'll post once they have progressed a little farther with them.
This is a very fun theme!
Yay! I can't wait to see what you've come up with! And I'm glad you think the theme is fun. X3
All the day I came up with this swap, I thinking of doing an "Elementals" swap and was writing up the description for it when this one just hit me out of the blue. I got so excited, it's hard not to sound really, really weird about it. >_> So I'll just say, "really excited" and leave it at that. XD;
So I'm shooting for a 9/9 myself. >_>; (Well, it'd be a 10/9 swap, since I'm also drawing Mr. Body. Because the game's not the same without Mr. Body. XD)
If it'd get anyone else to play - I'd be happy to change it. Amerasu - if you (or any other admin type X3) decide to join - go ahead and change the due date to Jan. 10, '08. :3
That's what I get for responding to a thread when I am already late for work - I didn't look properly at who I was talking to. XD;;; (Sorry Amerasu. XD; )
I changed the due date in this thread and changed it on the calendar! If someone with the modly abilities can change the due date in the thread from Dec. 10 to Jan. 10 - I would appreciate it.
Here's a set of my Clue cards for the swap. These are rather sylized and feel a little different than my typical stlye. I like the way they look together. Hope you like them.
