Happy New Clue Monday!!!!
Flashlight found in Schwechat.

Just some quick feedback to Pogo: 1) In the room “New York” you labelled an object as a stamp, but there were two ink stampers and a postage stamp. . .of course it was the third “stamp” I clicked on which was the one to which you were referring; 2) you labelled an object as a “pin” but it was really a clothespin, and not the lapel pin that was also in the puzzle; and 3) on what planet is a feather duster a “brush” as you labelled it? Someone needs to go back to that room and refine the labelling of the objects, in my opinion.
Clue is tricky because you do not know what “kind” of object. If you read the How to Play instructions for the game at the bottom it says:
“The names of hidden objects can be misleading. If it says “Bow” you might need to find the weapon, a piece of ribbon, or a violin bow, so don’t assume which one it is.”
Another tricky object is a Brush. It could be a paint brush, hair brush, scrubbing brush. Clue has always been this way that is why it can be a challenge!!
I’ve got every Clue episode and am very familiar with how they label things, but nowhere is a feather duster ever been labelled a brush before; and just using the word stamp when the room has a postage stamp, a blotter stamp, an ink stamp, and a rubber stamp is highly unusual. I love Clue, but a room should only have one type of “stamp” and not four different kinds with just the word “stamp” as the clue. No offense, but I think you missed my point.
Just remember, this is not Pogo, this is Badge Hungry. Someone from Pogo may, or may not, read your comments here. You may want to post your observations on Pogo. I do agree, you could play the room four times and it could be a different stamp each time.
That’s not quite correct. Whatever item Pogo codes to the word will always stay the same. If it’s the postage stamp today, it will be the postage stamp tomorrow.
In one of my favorite episodes there is a scene where you need to find a pillow. There are 2 pillows, one on a chair at the front of the room, and another on a chair towards the back. It is always the pillow on the chair towards the back.
I also have all the Clue episodes. But..based on how I play the episodes is sometimes based on the country that I’m playing. What we call one thing in the US may be something different in another country. If I see several items that I think could be the item, but not sure, I will pause the game and google the image for that country.
On another note, when I was in the New York room this morning, my clue list did say “post stamp”, so I knew which stamp to go for. I have to agree, the feather duster for a brush comment did blow my mind.

A new badge!
Pogo occasionally mis-labels an object and occasionally Pogo will revise their game to correct mis-named objects. That being said, you could stretch your imagination to call a feather duster a brush in that an action is employed to remove something. A brush of any sort is used to remove something and a feather duster is used to remove something.
In any case, if you have serious issues with HOG object naming, then a letter to the Pogo editor may direct Pogo’s attention to this issue.
I love HOG games!
