After I saw the entire Twin Peaks series on DVD, I was inspired to make something really special for my boyfriend (he's a HUGE David Lynch fan,) for our 1 year anniversary. Of course, that came and went, and the game itself got stuffed in a paper bag in the back of a closet for several months until I saw the post for this challenge on my beloved craftster. Five weeks later, I give you:

a Twin Peaks board game

I used Parker Brothers' Clue for the base and overall theme, considering it is a murder-mystery game and whatnot. I bought a used game from a local thrift store- unfortunately it was missing many parts which I am still finding substitutes for. The weapons are being particularly tricky. But for the most part, my game is complete, and definitely playable!

To start, I renamed all of the rooms.

Then, I painted the floor to make it look like natural stone.
I tried to keep the shadows from the rooms the same, like on the original Clue board. This is me putting on some finishing touches with a sharpe.

Here is the red room, which I am most proud of:

I had no red paint to paint the curtains on, so i used the red part if a few plastic bags all crinkled up and glued on. I think it turned out really cool. Here is the corresponding card for the red room.

And the character cards were fun to make too. Here's James Hurley:

That's his black game piece in the background. (There wasn't a black game piece in the original clue, I just thought black would go better with bad-boy James Hurley.) Here's purple Dr. Jacoby, red Ben Horne, etc. (All works in progress):

My first and favorite weapon, (the REAL murder weapon- Laura Palmer died of blood loss from several shallow cuts...) a razor blade:

Here's Leo Johnson's House, complete with secret passage to Dr. Jacoby's office:

And with corresponding card:

Me working on cards:

And for the sake of Halloween, scary corpse of Laura Palmer, literally wrapped in plastic:

I used a glue stick and some thick clear plastic from a gift bag to make the crinkled plastic and then sprinkled her face with some iridescent glitter to make it look wet. She's still really scary though, so we keep her covered up with the case file folder when we're playing.  Wink

Sorry so pic heavy, but I just had so much fun working on this, I had to show everybody! Thanks for looking! And if you've never played clue, or if you've never seen Twin Peaks, I suggest you go out right now and do both, because they are awesome, (especially when you put 'em together!)  Grin

Thanks again and happy crafting!!


Some more pictures, cuz you asked:

And Harold Smith's House- complete with plants and everything.

I've never seen this show, but I can still tell that a lot of thought and effort went into this project!  Great job!

Haha...that is great.  I actually bought a thrift store copy of clue after a Vegas trip years ago with the intension of making porn clue....during the long layover my husband and I somehow came up with that complete with ideas of how to spoof each name into a stripper/porn name...

Yours is WAY cooler than where were were going Smiley

Oh hey!  Cheesy I guess I should give a little background on the show!!

Twin peaks was a prime time drama that first aired in 1990. It was created by David Lynch (Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive) starring Kyle MacLachlan. It was centered around the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer in a small town in Washington state, called Twin Peaks. It won a Golden Globe. People loved it. Unfortunately, due to David Lynch's wonderful weirdness, it was canceled after the second season.
