Okie Doke. I want to go to the Hall. And, being in the hall, I am going to ponder over many a forgotten volume of my lost Lenore

As long as she doesn't touch the bust of Pallas above the library door everything will be fine. It's an exquisite example of second century BCE marble work and I would hate to see it soiled with finger prints.

um. getting to the Hall from A2 would require 12 moves. you only get 9 each turn. so would you like to say you are now at square H8 on the board, heading to the Hall?

also, the game board has scarlet marked at A1, which would be wrong. scarlet starts at A2.

How does getting to the Hall require 12 moves? There is a door at E8

And our moderator told me Scarlett starts at A1, so let's just keep it that way

Whoops sorry about that goof.  Shouldn't be a huge issues though since Scarlet can get to the Hall and make a suggestion their anyway from her correct starting location,

Board update

Board update
How does getting to the Hall require 12 moves? There is a door at E8.

A2 is where Scarlet starts, and there is no door to the Hall on that side that can be reached in 9 moves or under. She could, however, reach the Lounge in 8 moves. In fact, you'll notice (if you bothered to look) that every player has 8 exact moves to a room from their starting position (with the exception of Plum who has 7 moves to reach the closest room), which means no player has enough moves to make a suggestion in round 1, but only in round 2 from the room they reached in round 1, or a room they get called to as a result of a suggestion.

But if Scarlet starts at A1, she can both move AND make a suggestion in the same, beginning turn (6 moves to reach the Hall or Study, 3 left over to make a suggestion), whereas no other player can do so, resulting in Scarlett having the ability to make 2 suggestions before anyone else gets their first suggestion.

Nothing I can say in my defense except I play this game a lot (well simpsons version)...

So, does this mean that despite "playing a lot" you're just incompetent?

And our moderator told me Scarlett starts at A1, so let's just keep it that way

Or were you hoping no one else would notice so that you could exploit the advantage?

Okie Doke. I want to go to the Hall. And, being in the hall, I am going to ponder over many a forgotten volume of my lost Lenore

Given that you didn't even realise you had enough moves left to make a suggestion from an erroneous starting position (6 moves + 3 left over as I already mentioned), I guess I'll vote for incompetent.

Since Scarlet didn't make a suggestion this turn I don't see their being issue.  Ms. Scarlet will be able to make a suggestion from the Hall next turn just as she would be able to from the normal starting spot.

If she's determined to reach the Hall first, then sure, she could move to H8 on turn 1, then on her next turn she would require only 3 moves more to reach the Hall and be able to make a suggestion on round 2 anyway. So, sure, that works out to the same result.

Fine: Ms. Scarlet do you want to be a H8 on your way to the Hall (being able to get there and make a suggestion next turn) or get into the Lounge?

Well, while we're waiting on Miss Scarlet to get un-lost in the mansion, I'm sure we can let Colonel Mustard go ahead and take his turn, and keep this ball rolling.
