Cursed Clue Character? Answered

Picture of

Here's something you might find interesting. I enjoy playing Clue, as does my family. A short while ago we bought a new board, and we've been playing with it. Everything was going fine, until something freaky started happening. Almost always Professor Plum did it. We tried shuffling differently, checking the cards, everything. Then we started keeping track. as of now of 15 times played, our favorite Egyptologist did it 11 times. Now that's just freaky. He did it with an array of weapons and locations, but he's been consistently a killer. Anyone know how to excorsise a game piece?

Think about it this way: you have a better shot at winning now.

Wow! Plum is my favorite character! I can't believe he does it so much. I'm not an exorcist, so no, can't help you there.

Well other than killing a bunch of people he/it hasn't done anything else weird...

Yeah, if you're going to call that weird, you might as well call all of us weirdos. I mean, we've all killed the occasional person every now and then, right? Right?

Sure. I still have the last one in my freezer.

The freezer? Is that less conspicuous than the pool?

Either a) find a priest with some spare time, holy water and crucifixes and all that b) Perhaps iron the cards or flatten them under a heavy object for a while. You can always find a different way of shuffling the pack, or deal the killer card from the bottom, or even get someone to cut and take a card from the middle of the pack.

Hmm, avoiding dealing him would be a good idea, what will ironing do though?

Well I would imagine it is dealt more often because the card is slightly bent. It might be that it got damp once and now the coating is a bit sticky, which ironing probably wouldn't help, however. I guess you really need a mechanical randomising device, possibly in the form of a solid cube or octahedron with enumerated faces...

I can do the job - I clicked the wrong button on a pagan website I was browsing (for reasons I forget), and accidentally got ordained as a priest. If you ever need a quick wedding, and you're on holiday in Vegas at the same time as me, I'm your man.

You'd better burn that card... Though it might release his spirit.

Last time I played Cluedo (that's the other name), Colonel Mustard was the cursed one.

Oh, I don't remember exactly. Last time I played this game, I was teenager ... I just remember that Mustard was the one who killed the most : Many steaks with Mustard.
