15.9 - Get a Clue
Clue, or Cluedo outside the U.S., is a popular murder-mystery board game. Read a book that meets one of the following 3 characteristics AND has the MPG Mystery.
1. Contains a person's name in the title/subtitle. The name should be used in reference someone in the book (a main character or the subject of the book, for example).
2. Contains an original or new weapon listed under "Weapons" on the Clue Wiki in the title/subtitle or series title. Plurals, possessives, and singulars may be used but no other variations are allowed. A list of weapons can also be found in post 2 of the Help Thread.
3. Contains an original or new room listed under "Rooms" on the Clue Wiki in the title/subtitle or series title. Plurals or possessives may be used but no other variations are allowed. A list of rooms can also be found in post 2 of the Help Thread.
Ex: Eva's Eye; Poison; Death Overdue (The Haunted Library Mysteries #1)

Yes, as long as the word is in the title it will work.

Joanne (joabroda1) | 1072 comments Does the name of the series count as subtitle RE:The Brass Verdict Mickey Haller #2

No. From the FAQs:
4. What's the difference between titles, subtitles, and series titles?
The title is the name of the book. The subtitle follows the title after a colon. A series title appears in parenthesis after the title and/or subtitle, sometimes with a number to indicate the book's position in the series order.
For instance, in Genghis: Birth of an Empire, the title is "Genghis." The subtitle is "Birth of an Empire." The series title is "(Conqueror #1)."

Charlston Goch (list_addict) | 150 comments Could I use A Fatal Grace given the name Grace is not used as a name in this context? Thanks.

No, sorry. It needs to be in reference to a person in the book. I'll clarify that in the task description.

Charlston Goch (list_addict) | 150 comments Cool, thanks.


message 21: by Kate (new)

Kate (kathrynlouwca) | 1049 comments Just to clarify, for the name option, it has to be in the title, it can't be in the series? So The Big Four (Hercule Poirot #5) wouldn't work?

Correct. Title/subtitle only for the name option.

The Key to Rebecca a parallel story that involved a german spy, a sexy belly dancer and the famous "Rebecca" from Daphne du Maurier

Yes, the description makes it clear that the Santa in the title refers to Santa Claus.
