Just for fun... this short story based around the whodunit game Cluedo/Clue was written as a guest post for the blog 7criminalminds in January 2011

The prompt was: “The Clue characters are locked in a winter lodge. Mr. Boddy is found dead in a snowdrift with no visible signs of trauma. Who did it and how do you prove it using just the things in the lodge?”

This is Mr. Boddy's faithful retainer, Blanche White's recollection of the events of the fatal night, as told to police detective Bruno Gray.
I do not own the game Cluedo/Clue, and I am not in any way affiliated with Hasbro, the publisher of the game. I just borrowed the characters to have some fun.

The game has more plot and better characters than this predictable short story!

To call this a short story is an understatement. It's beyond short and it's hardly a story. Thank goodness it was free. Not worth the effort. It could have been a story, however, there was no detecting. Just the person who done it telling you (the reader) they done it and sadly, I had already figured that out.

Does not live up to the beloved childhood game or the film. I've no desire to keep this. Discarding here I come!
