Exercise #5

Exercise #5: Brainstorm
Posted 5/30/03

Hopefully you've all played Clue at some time, but if you need a refresher, check out this site:

With six suspects, six murder weapons, and nine rooms (I've listed them all at the bottom of this message), the site says there's a possible 324 different murder combinations. Wow.

For this exercise, pick for yourself who did it, in which room, and with what. Then write a short piece (1200 words or less) which takes place before the crime, during the crime, or after the crime. Give us enough details so we can guess who, where, and what. Remember not to use the character's name, room name, or weapon name in your SUB. At the bottom of your piece, you might tell us which combination you chose.

Word limit: 1200
Please use the subject line:
