Description Edit | History

In this notorious game, an inversion of Clue, you hate Doctor Lucky. Maybe he left you out of his will. Maybe he killed your pet rock. Whatever the reason, you want him dead. Unfortunately, so do the other players. Since you don't want to go to jail, you need to make your attempt in secret; if anybody can see you, whistle nonchalantly, and let the Doctor live ... until next time.

Players move around the mansion, collecting murder weapons (to make the murder attempt stronger - doubly so if the weapon is used in an appropriate location); failure cards (to thwart opponents' plans); and movement cards (to try to get together with Doctor Lucky in a secluded location for his inevitable demise.) Players try to convince others to use up their failure cards first, the better for when their own attempts come.

Versions

Rule Variants

There are three rule variants, depending on which version of game you own.

The Cheapass Games and Titanic Games releases present spite tokens as optional. By a wide margin, BGG users seem to prefer using the spite tokens. Also, spite tokens can be used to increase the failure value when attempting to foil murder attempts.

In the Paizo Publishing release (with the Little Dog expansion), spite tokens are no longer optional. Also, spite tokens cannot be used to increase the failure value when foiling murder attempts.

15 Robb's Kill Doctor Lucky makeover
This is my Kill Doctor Lucky board design that I created using a variety of textures and objects some from RPGMapshare and Dundjinni's forums. I used Titanic's layout as a bit of a guide and the Cheapass board as a template. This is as small as I can make the file and keep the quality of the full size. Look for a link to the full size somewhere nearby. I hope you enjoy!

7 The Villa - another board for Kill Dr Lucky
A board I designed myself. Print on adhesive paper, stick on cardboard and assembly to a bigger board with two folds. The text on the board says: It's already long time ago since you tried to kill the old man.He's got more luck than judgement. Now he disappeared from his mansion. But you got to know that he owns another, smaller estate. So go and get him! This board has less rooms than the original one.Following room-cards have to be discarded from the game: White Room, Greenhouse, Nursery and Hedge Maze
