Mr Boddy twirls his moustaches. "You think you have won, do you? You are mistaken!"

col_mustard has a moustache I think, but can't match it with the other hints. Does this help anybody ?

Oomph, Mr Boddy, I am not too up to date with my math lessons but I don't thing 8 minus 2 is 3. It's... 7?

It just needs to be ONE clue that you work off of. You just need to cite that one clue. So, if it was him (and I am not saying it is), and Mr. Boddy has struck six times, but you think ONE of the clues of the six makes it obvious - you can guess based on that clue. I should make that more clear that you need not tie ALL the clues together, because of how obscure they can be.
Mrs. White, you've been paying our friend, the blackmailer, ever since your husband died under, shall we say, mysterious circumstances?

Hello, I'm Wanda, Cosmo's wife. Cosmo's very sweet but not the brightest crayon in the box...

I'm sepia!

No you're not. The character in Mustard's image is an actor, is it possible he played a Musketeer or read an audiobook? I also found the song "The mustard musketeer" by Regina Spektor.

Your health was restored to the correct amount. I do believe Mr. Boddy got confused - only the first strike is 5 on any new person.
And since Mr. Boddy already struck at you once, the damage should have only been 2 (so from 8 to 6).

"Oh dear," says Mr. Boddy, "I shall never kill someone at that rate! In the meantime, my toilet's overflowing. I'll need to call my plumber, but first..."

At least Mr. Boddy did their math correctly this time! ;)

**** Suggestion: let us take a few guesses FIRST before healing - this gives us a strategical advantage. Boddy is frozen until we heal. ****
There's already a rule that Mr. Boddy can not strike again until at least ONE person is healed.
I tried to make use of this functionality to get some collaboration going in order to catch Mr Boddy

I think *Whoopee Cushion would rather Mr. Boddy be caught since they're bleeding everywhere...

Unless they're Mr. Boddy........... :o

Yeah I *know* this of course, however, people handed out heals like cupcakes without there having been guesses ;) - that really only suits Mr. Boddy right now.

Anyway, Whoopee is safe until we'll heal again. I'm certain the most strategic thing for *us* innocent folks to do is to discuss for a bit and get as many people to take a guess based on one of the hints as possible.

I think what Bowsette means is you allowed Boddy to strike again while nobody got healed...

Three strikes! Boddy's out!

...and Bowsette would like to talk about possible candidates and whatever the hints could mean.

I'm sorry, Cosmo's been in the sugar... We're also only allowed to heal once before Boddy can strike again but I interpreted that as "we can all heal once"

Correct - everyone can only heal ONCE until Mr. Boddy strikes.

Everyone gets ONE healing potion per Mr. Boddy's attack.

So, for example:

JOE can heal SALLY for 1 point.
Then BOB comes and heals SALLY for 1 more point.
JAKE heals MARSHA for 1 point.
JOE, JAKE or BOB can not heal ANYONE else until Mr. Boddy strikes again.
So even though JOE and BOB have never healed Marsha, they can't heal again, until Mr. Boddy strikes, because they've used up their ONE healing.

I will make that more clear in the rules.

See updated rules in the HEALING POTIONS portion of the game on the original post.

You are correct! Mr. Boddy is discovered!

Mr. Boddy is going to be reassigned to another person (or will he?) in just a moment!

The new (?) Mr. Boddy will be notified in a moment!

Everyone's health is restored!
