Oh No!  Sherlock Holmes has been murdered and it can only have been by one of those closest to him! You are now a Master Detective and must discover which one of Holmes’ companions has committed the crime!

Hi There Creative Embellishments Fans! Sarah here today to share my Master Detective Clue Game with you! We LOVE playing games in our family and Clue (by Hasbro) is one of our favourites! As soon as I saw the Master Detective Collection by Graphic 45, I knew I had to create my own version of Clue using the papers!

I created the folding gameboard and covered the back of the board with papers from the Master Detective 12 x 12 Patterns and Solids. All the papers for the game are inked with Distress Ink in Ground Espresso. I outlined the front panel of the gameboard with some Tim Holtz Halloween-themed Design Tape that perfectly complements these papers! I used the Signature Page from the 8×8 Paper Pad to decorate the front of the board.

I made a large envelope for the back of the 8×8 page and attached it with velcro dots – this way it can be used as storage for all of the game cards! I made a second smaller envelope (tucked into the pocket on the front) that can be used during the game to hold the suspect, weapon and location cards for the mystery.

I created the Weapon and Location cards by printing on some of the papers from the 12 x 12 Patterns and Solids – I sized these cards to fit on the 12 x 12 Master Detective Card cut-outs – so all of the cards, including the Character Cards, have the “Master Detective” Design on the back. I also created the game score cards using paper and colours that coordinate with the Master Detective Collection. I laminated all the cards so they could be played with and not get damaged; I also laminated the score cards so that they can be used with dry-erase marker! The game tokens are some small skulls I cut off of a Halloween costume necklace!
For the Game Board itself, I used different papers for each room (and a journalling card for one of the rooms) and then outlined each room with some Tim Holtz Design Tape so that the room boundaries were defined. The game spaces were made using alternating colours of the Houndstooth patterned paper from the 12 x 12 Patterns and Solids. All the room labels, as well as the weapons and “Clue” title are Custom Cut Creative Embellishments Chipboard! Did you know you can ask Nicolle for custom cuts if there is a design you simply must have?!?!?!? All of the room labels and the title are embossed with Vintage Gold Embossing Powder, as was the Candlestick. The Pistol, Wrench, Lead Pipe and Dagger were painted with Prima Metallique and Sparks Acrylic Paints. The Rope was embossed with Distress Embossing Powder in Mustard Seed

Here’s a closer look at all the cards, weapons and game tokens!
