Hiya! So this is my first post on Crafster! Hooray! Hopefully someone will actually read this and be inspired, as I was inspired by a similar project on this very site. (see here:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=339376.0)
I've only recently discovered the amazingness that is Doctor Who but boy am I glad I did!  I made this Doctor Who Clue game for my friend's 21st birthday. I decided to stick to one regeneration of the Doctor to make it a little more uniform. I reconstituted an old (1980?) edition.

I photoshopped a bunch of Who images from the internet and printed them out on label paper.  I cut each image and simply stuck it in its proper place on the board (much more advisable than printing on regular paper and glueing or taping!)

I did the same for the cards too (yes those are real Clue cards with label paper stuck on the front).

  Then I used Sculpi to make the character and weapon pieces. I used white sculpi and then painted it after baking.  

I even printed out new check-off sheets and attached small metal links to the top to make it look like a notebook (in retrospect, this was not the smartest idea if only because I chose one of the sturdiest chains in my house and used my fingers as a vise. The resulting blisters were not fun. If you do this, I highly suggest using a more pliable chain AND a vise to open and close the links.)

And yes, that is Nine as the victim.
Well, there it is. Comments are welcome!

That's fantastic!  And it looks like a lot of work went into that!  I'll bet your friend was thrilled.

Awesome!!  Grin Once when I was a kid I also made a home made Clue: I was staying for the Summer holidays at my grandparents' and I didn't have any game around, so I made a cheap version of Clue... nothing compared to this one!

In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime and the district attorneys who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories.

This is amazing!
I hope you don't mind if I make one for myself :-D
