That was cute. I should have got it, Clue was one of my favorites when I was a kid!

The original name of the game is Cluedo, which is a pun on Ludo. Ludo is called Pachisi in the USA, so the name of the Cluedo was changed to Clue. I like this teaser, but Cluedo shoudl be listed as an alternate answer.

Right you are, my dear Barticus. It was originally a UK creation.

How cute. I got all the colors, but certainly didn't put them together with Clue. Thanks for starting off my day with a smile.

Jan 03, 2006

This was a really great teaser! I had to look at the answer(s) but it was fun. I've never played the game Clue, but I've seen the movie a few times. It's hilarious! It has Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Michael Keaton, Leslie Ann Warren, Christopher Lloyd, and I forget who else, but it was a riot!
smee*
Jan 03, 2006

Oh, I remember now.... Mr. Green was played by Michael Keaton, Professor Plum was Christopher Lloyd, Mrs. Peacock was Eileen Brennan, Mrs. White was Madeline Kahn, Miss Scarlet was Leslie Ann Warren, Colonel Mustard was Martin Mull, and Tim Curry played the butler.

Oh boy, this was an excellent one!! Used to play that game with the family not too many years ago, but *still* didn't put the CLUEs together to get the correct answer! Very very fun indeed!!
And, right you are smee, that movie was fanshmabulous!!! Mr. Curry is priceless!!

lmurray has much in common with ishouldntbehere ...
Personally, as a non-Clue player and an American, I learned a great deal from this. Not just from the clues and the answers, but also from the questions and answers in the comments. Keep 'em coming!!!

Jan 03, 2006

I never played clue. What the heck is it.? I got the plum and white ones right. It was okay.
shawneeo*us*
Jan 03, 2006

I didn't get it! I noticed a "u" in mustard, then two "u"'s in the two months between May and July, so then I was on a roll... the wrong way...

Oh well, to feel better, I'll complain: I don't know if white is really considered a "neutral" color. Since "ecru" IS a "neutral" color, that gave more ammunition to my "u" theory. I'm not totally sure, but I don't think of white as neutral, that's like, beige, ecru, tan, isn't it? White is at one end of the scale, it's an extreme.

Thanks though, still fun and good!

Fun and creative! Good job! Keep 'em coming!

I was stuck on green as both May and August are 5 months from their side of the calendar. My daughter helped out with scarlet, and she figured out it was Clue.
We had fun!
Thanks!

Is there any other game else beside the game of Clue, that has a combination of mustard and plum in it? Fun teaser.
coachpisco*
Jan 03, 2007

I've never played Clue, so I didn't get this one. However, I was thinking about colors of the rainbow. The teaser was cute though. Thanks.

OMG! My parents had us playing Clue, just after we starting learning words in childhood....lol And, I am only a baby-boomer. The professor was always my favorite The candlestick, the revolver, and a few more items were there too. And the different rooms ....

Jan 03, 2007

Fun concept, but simple if you know the game, I figured it out after Mustard and Plum.

FYI Its called Clue in North America, Cluedo in the rest of the world.
scallioAus*
Jan 03, 2007

Awesome teaser!

I didn't know other countries call it Cluedo. I love the game and this teaser.

THIS CERTAINLY BROUGHT BACK MEMORIES.

THE "CLUES" WERE OBVIOUS, BUT THE COMMONALITY WAS THE TRICK.

GOOD ONE!

Good Job! It took me a minute after I figured out they were all colors to put it together with the game "Clue." I'ver never heard of "Cluedo" either.

Excellent!
teddybairAus*
Jan 03, 2007

Good one! I figured it was from the game of Clue, but couldn't remember all the characters as it's been so long since I've played it. It was fun though!

ooOOh, so I should have played Clue before I tried this.

Nice One! I got all the clues, but the link? Very tricky!

Jan 03, 2007

Oh! I forgot to mention, for all the people confused about the name, Clue is its North American name, while Cluedo is its original British name.
sweetbloodAus**
Jan 03, 2007

this was a good one
you totaly stumped me
breathesunshineAus*
Jan 03, 2007

I had half of them, then looked at the hint. As soon as I did I knew it was Clue. Thanks for the childhood reminder of fun sprawled on the floor with friends playing board games!

I really enjoyed this teaser! I was definitely clueless...but still had fun trying! Thanks

Yay, I got this one! Used to play Clue all the time as a kid.
wordmama*
Jan 03, 2007

All I needed was Mustard and Plum to get the common thread Clue. Then missed 'green' and got the rest. Fun!

It was interesting to learn the original European name, Cluedo.

And another positive comment from you-know-who!! I'm so excited! I'm pulling for you to keep it up!! Happy New Year!

THIS WAS A GREAT TEASER. I LOVED IT.
QrystalAca*
Jan 04, 2007

That was a great teaser!! I'm still grinning!! I love the game Clue, and I'm half inclined to start calling it Cluedo to join the rest of the world.

I got the answer just from mixing mustard, grape, and white, and then realizing that grape should actually be plum. I had no idea why green worked for the months until I looked at the answer, but I realize now that I should've known.

My sister, who's here visiting, was working through the teaser after I insisted that she'd enjoy the answer... She quickly got peacock to add to the three mentioned above, but had to think about the other two. I told her I didn't see how the clue for #3 fit the answer, in case that helped. After puzzling over it awhile, she said to herself out loud, "I don't have a clue--- OH! CLUE!!!"

I'm gonna go find an online game of clue now.

I LOVE board games and Clue is one of my favorites - especially with the grandchildren. Thanks for a fun quiz.

Jan 03, 2013

After the 1st two (mustard and plum) I figured it must be the characters in the game of clue. Although I got them, I couldn't get the connection between May and August and the color green - until I looked at the answer - very clever!
