Step 5: The Players Turn Is Over When...
a. Another player disproves the player’s suggestion.
b. The player was not able to move into a room.
c. They make a false accusation.
Step 6: Accusations & Suggestions
*Suggestion - A player’s suggestion consists of guessing who did the crime, what weapon they used, and what room the crime took place in. However, a player can only guess the room that their player piece is located in. If a player cannot reach a room with the number of moves they rolled, then the player cannot make a suggestion. When a player makes a suggestion, they also have to move the suggested player piece and the weapon to the room they are guessing.
*Accusation - Based on the data from the player’s detectives notebook the player selects a combination of a person, room, and weapon that could have killed Mr. Boddy. This accusation cannot be disproved by the other players. It can be confirmed or disproved only by checking the envelope. The player then checks the envelope to see if they are correct. If they are incorrect, they can no longer make any more suggestions or accusations. If they are correct, they are the winner and the game is over.
