    This is my first VPX table. There was an agreement between me and my wife... I get to build a cab, and in return i had to build her an original table based on her all time favorite movie. Of course it was "Clue". We both grew up with it, and it has also become a cult classic. Of course now, since Hollywood has run out of original ideas, they are planning to remake this movie with the Deadpool director, and star Ryan Reynolds. So i figured that it needed to be done before that happened and i got asked by some teenager that has never seen the original why i based the table on the "old movie" LOL

    Anyway, go easy on me. It's my first table. I had JP, and many other "heavy hitters" in my corner helping me out, but I'm sure there are a few unorthodox ways of doing things that someone will wonder about, but hey, I like it, My wife likes it... promise fulfilled...

    And i hope you all like it too. Real life stuff has come up for me, and there is a very real possibility that I will not be around for a while (maybe shorter with good behavior..wink) to help with any support topics, so i hope you can figure it out. There has been a TON of testing and tweaking to try to make it work correctly the first time. That being said, I hope that everyone will find it enjoyable, and make any personal adjustments as needed, but would appreciate no public modifications.

    There are numerous options at the top of the script.

    Thanks:

    You get thanks for three things:

     

    1 – That intro paragraph had me laughing because of how true that is

    2 – I remember seeing that movie at a drive-in sitting in the back of my dad’s old station wagon.  Fun times.

    3 – Appreciation for anyone who contributes to our hobby, putting forth their personal time and effort, all for zero financial gain.

    Thanks!

    I would really hate to see you inactive for reasons you mention or anything else. Really a great table you’ve made here. Full of original ideas and proper rules ( took me some rounds to understand what I was expected to do ) and it not only looks beautiful, it plays great too. I’m not the biggest fan of originals but, recently there has been some very good ones. Yours is definitely among those. I commend you for the way you tell the story using the videos. They are put there for a clear reason. Not only to show a movie. I don’t have time seeing movies while playing. Seeing pup packs larger than 2G is just ridiculous. A DVD movie is lasting 1.5 hours plus, is approx 4G.

    Thank you so much for this great table @fusionwerks !

    It’s been so long it will be like seeing it again for the first time. I used to enjoy those Neil Simon type movies … holy, I know I saw Clue before but seeing pics of the movie indicated I was mixing up the drive-in with “Murder by Death”, similar type of movie.  Anyway Clue was well done too, I’d forgotten who Professor Plumb was lol

    Cool, I love it when community members help out with voice work!  We end up getting some nice pearls along the way and it’s another way for us members to contribute!

    i agree. Ask anyone on that thank you list what an annoyance i have been. Rocco helped me tremendously, cause i needed callouts, but cant stand the sound of my own voice… And he has that DJ voice ;) Maybe he will give his blessing to use them on other tables since they are all standard callouts with the exception of a few table specific.

    Go for it.  I’m a radio dj so I have all the tools to record at my disposal, so it’s easy for me to record and send.  So if anyone ever needs any help with voice work let me know.

    wow what a fantastic game.  You know you are playing something fun when you get a nice smile during the entire game.  I did get a crash back to the desktop though (not a PUP crash that worked the entire time :) ).  The crash occurred while I was I think attempting to kill Mrs White (or as Mrs White) but then I locked the ball for the mystery award then boom, crashed out of VP.

     

    Still super fun, there’s obviously a lot of work put into this, anyone playing this can tell.  It doesn’t have flashy playfield graphics but it lends itself well to the board game look.  Really superb!

    Thank you for the compliments. I unfortunately dont know what the reason was for the crash. Does it do it with any other characters? With the exception of Mr Green (who is mode 7 of 7) they are all selected at random, and are all coded the same. So, if it is specific to Ms White, i may be able to find it, if not then i may be at a loss.

    The table was meant to look like the inside of the mansion from the movie, with the parquet wood floors, and the marble entry way by the flippers. The secret passage from the kitchen to the hall through the fireplace.. etc.
