Geocache Description:

CACHE IS NOT LOCATED AT POSTED COORDINATES!

SEE 8/4/14 NOTE REGARDING CACHE LOCATION DURING CONSTRUCTION


You had been planning to take your kids - Annie and Benny - and some of their friends - Connie, Danny, Ennie and little Fritz- out for a fun caching trip today, but the heavy rain put the kaibosh on that idea.  The kids are good sports about it though, and decided that they would sit around your kitchen table and play a game of Clue.  You lost the board for the game long ago, but you still have all the cards, tokens, and weapons.  Without the board, the kids play a modified version of the game using these rules:

 

1. They sit around the table in alphabetical order: ABCDEF.  Turns and reveals go in that same order, looping back to Annie after Fritz.

2. One suspect, one weapon, and one room card are randomly chosen and set aside.  The remaining 18 cards are shuffled together and dealt out to the players, resulting in each child receiving three cards.

3. On each player's turn they accuse any one suspect, any one weapon, and any one room.

4. The next player in order, if he/she has any of the named three cards, shows the accuser exactly one of those three.  If not, then the next person in line would show the accuser a card if he/she has one, rinse and repeat.  After one player has shown one card to the accuser, that accuser's turn ends and the next player in line takes a turn.

5. The cards are revealed to the accuser only, not to the entire table.

6. The winner of the game is whoever first determines the set aside Suspect, Weapon, and Room

7. The kids are all extremely honest (and as mentioned above, good sports) and always show a proper card if they are required to.  No cheaters in this group!

 

 You watch the kids playing, thinking about all the caches you would have gotten today, and notice the following play out:

Annie accuses Professor Plum with the Revolver in the Dining Room--Danny shows her a card

Benny accuses Miss Scarlet with the Lead Pipe in the Lounge--Ennie shows him a card

Connie accuses Mr. Green with the Candlestick in the Hall--Ennie shows her a card

Danny accuses Mrs. Peacock with the Wrench in the Dining Room--Annie shows him a card

Ennie accuses Col. Mustard with the Wrench in the Conservatory--Connie shows her a card

Fritz accuses Mrs. White with the Knife in the Library--Benny shows him a card

Annie accuses Mr. Green with the Revolver in the Study--Danny shows her a card

Benny accuses Mrs. Peacock with the Knife in the Ballroom--Fritz shows him a card

Connie accuses Miss Scarlet with the Rope in the Billiard Room--Annie shows her a card

Danny accuses Mrs. White with the Candlestick in the Library--Fritz shows him a card

Ennie accuses Miss Scarlet with the Wrench in the Ballroom--Benny shows her a card

Connie accuses Mrs. Peacock with the Lead Pipe in the Conservatory--Danny shows her a card

Danny accuses Prof. Plum with the Rope in the Kitchen--Benny shows him a card

Ennie accuses Miss Scarlet with the Candlestick in the Dining Room--Annie shows her a card

Fritz accuses Mr. Green with the Revolver in the Hall--Ennie show him a card

Annie accuses Prof. Plum with the Lead Pipe in the Ballroom--Danny shows her a card

Benny accuses Mrs. Peacock with the Revolver in the Dining Room--Ennie shows him a card

Connie accuses Col. Mustard with the Rope in the Hall--Fritz shows her a card

Danny accuses Prof. Plum with the Candlestick in the Ballroom--Connie shows him a card

Ennie accuses Mrs. White with the Knife in the Hall--Fritz shows her a card

You look outside and see that the rain has stopped, the sun has come out, and it is now a beautiful day to go caching. "C'mon, let's hit the trails," you say.

"But we're not done with our game," Annie says. "we can't go until we're done"

"Well then," says little Fritz (who loves caching most of all). "Let's end this game. The murderer, weapon and location are....."
