Clue board game Pieces

John's Blog: SEO, Music, Photography & More

Creating game piecesThis past weekend I helped my girlfriend (Lauren) with another birthday cake. This was the 2nd cake that I’ve helped out with (the first one was a mandolin birthday cake that turned out awesome) but I believe that she’s done at least 10 of these now. Her sister’s boyfriend is a big fan of the board game “Clue”, and thus an idea was born.

She started off by baking 2 chocolate cakes in a 12×12 cake pan. In the meantime, I mixed fondant with food coloring in an attempt to match the colors of the different rooms found on the Clue playing board.Closeup of Clue board game sections We then flattened the fondant out using a rolling pin and cut out the shapes of each room.

Here’s a close-up of some of the various sections of the board, laid out on a piece of paper the same size as the actual cake, so that I’d make them the right sizes and could arrange them the same way that they’d ultimately be arranged on the cake. I used a paintbrush and some food coloring to paint the names of each section onto the pieces – I’d be lying if I said that this wasn’t slightly nerve wracking.I took a big hunk of fondant and colored it green for the base color of the board. I then rolled the fondant out so that it was wide enough to cover the entire cake. We stacked the 2 chocolate cakes on top of one another (with a layer of raspberry filling in between them) and then layered the fondant over the cakes.Once the green fondant was firmly layered over the cake, Lauren tightened up the edges and then cut off the excess. Pay no attention to the glue in the following photo – I have no idea why that was there. Everything on the actual cake was edible.We colored/rolled out a second layer of yellow-ish fondant to cover the green base layer. We used icing to secure this 2nd layer to the first layer.Laying the fondant over the chocolate cake We then began to secure the sections of the board to the cake, also using icing as a sort of “glue”.Had we not used that piece of cardboard to determine the size and spacing of each piece, I have a feeling this wouldn’t have worked out nearly as well.Here’s an almost finished version of the cake! We ended up adding a few more minor details after this photo was taken.We added a dice (also made out of fondant) and a couple of actual playing pieces from the game (not made out of fondant).And here’s the final version of the cake on the board.Putting these together is a lot of fun. Next time we do one of these, I’m going to make an effort to photograph each step of the process. During these first 2 cakes, I wasn’t consistent in my documentation, and therefore it may be slightly difficult to follow along.

Played the board game CLUE last night

by -

It just seemed to go by so fast and
with not much excitement.
We played with 2 players. You scatter the pieces around the board and split up the cards. Then when someone moves into a room you can guess the person, weapon and room the murder happened in against the cards you have and see if your competition has them.
There must be a more challenging way to play.
We also watched the movie. It was entertaining for 1985.

I take that back....

The link doesn't show the rares. It just shows the Odds and says it's a rare list.
Here's the clue on how to tell if you have the rare.
Out of the set, the one that is LAST alphabetically is the rare piece. Exception being Board Walk/Park Place where Board Walk is the rare.
So Baltic/Mediterranean...Baltic is common and Mediterranean is Rare.
I just grabbed the first google result. #2 highlights the rares.
