Bracket 4, Category: Bored game: Its raining outside, the power is out, and the battery died on your devise. Looking for something to do, you happen across a cupboard full of board games. Build a MOC showing us which one you would choose to play.
Sit back, grab some dice and a deck of Clue cards, and experience the classic who-done-it in a whole new way!
Reference Picture: I used the reference material to capture the correct dimensions, but I deviated quite a bit in my artistic interpretation. Instead of cramming in all the furnishings, I only included one or two items to represent each room.
In the Lego version, you get a score-brick instead of a score-sheet!

The suspects gather around the late Dr. Black...
...but I've personally got my money on these gentlemen.
Don't forget the secret passage from the Kitchen to the Study!
There are so many cool things about this but, I specifically liked all you different floor techniques. From the SNOTed earling (?) bricks to the slanted tile floors and the upside down 6x8 plate, it really gives a lot of variation to the build ~Noel
Well, looks like you're putting your collection to good use. Seriously, man, you've made me envious. ;) Jokes aside - wow! This is a spectacular entry, Ian! One of the best of the games so far! I love your approach, the accuracy to the real game and all the fantastic details. The score-brick is great as well. While Luke's entry was excellent, I don't think anyone could have beaten this one. You get my vote! Congratulations on advancing to Round 5!
Wow Ian brilliant build and great take on the catergory, I'll love to play a round of this with you, maybe we should catch up and play :P Congrats on making it to Round 5, keep up the great work man :D
Thanks for the thoughtful and encouraging words everyone!
Quoting . Snaillad .
Despite it being obviously very flat...
It's funny how game boards tend to be that way. ;) Teasing aside, thanks for the comment man!
Quoting Nick Barrett
Wow. You could play Cluedo on this :-)
You certainly could! One of my sisters keeps requesting to play it!
Quoting Magma !
Believe it or not, but I found out about this game from the LEGO community.
Hah, cool! Ever played? It's quite diverting!

I am buying this game. How much?
I dislike selling MOCs unless the offers are so generous they'd be foolish to ignore. This MOC contains many of my favorite pieces and it's roughly 50x50 studs i.e. it has a 2500 stud surface area. That said, I probably wouldn't be willing to sell for under $900. If that doesn't deter you, we can talk further. Let me know.

I have never played Clue but you got this build to look exactly like the real version.
Give it a whirl sometime! It's a fun game.

Also, I assume you'll be adding this to the MO2014 group?
Of course, but thanks for the sporting reminder anyhow!
Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Of course, my favourite element is the plethora of LukeClarenceVans - what a top-notch duo. ;)
Haha, thanks LCV! I thought you would appreciate that. I mean, who else would be out to kill my mini-figures at this point in time (except maybe Matt and Iain Heath)? ;)

...versus the builder so devoted to the brick that his first, last, and only girlfriend is made out of olive cheese...
Haha, thanks man. There's probably more truth to that than I'd care to admit. ;)
I was very interested in what you would build for this category, Clue was a great choice! You executed it brilliantly with all the textures and variety of furniture. The scorecard is also a nice touch. This is a close matchup, it will be interesting to see how this unfolds. Excellent work! Good luck in this round!
This is wonderful Ian! The composition is beautiful, I just want to sit and stare at it, it is so lovely. Fantastic rendition as well, spot on! I love all your angled floors, and the "book"shelf is a nice touch. :) Good luck mate!
Lovely job Ian. The balance of colours and patterns, the scale, the carefully picked-out details like the sofa or piano, it all comes together and makes a splendid whole. the score-brick is great too! Well done, I think you got this category as the judges imagined it. Good luck!
Brilliant! A whole series of vignettes, neatly linked together. I like the piano and the billards table the most. The way that each room has different flooring, some at different angles, really lifts this into another level of detail.
Beautiful build Ian, an elegant simplicity interspersed with bouts of complexity where it suits the aesthetic. A great interpretation of Clue. The secret passage in the kitchen especially caught my eye, fantastic execution. Of course, my favourite element is the plethora of LukeClarenceVans - what a top-notch duo. ;) Best of luck with the judges!
A heavy procrastinator star wars geek versus the builder so devoted to the brick that his first, last, and only girlfriend is made out of olive cheese. Jokes aside, this is going to be fun match to watch! Fantastic job!
