Jane Austen Clue

The opening game at the Craigville meeting was Clue. For those of you who need a refresher, here's what happens and how we modified it: We passed out index cards to everyone, each card bearing the names of two Austen characters (theoretically murdered). The player had to determine who killed the victim, the murder weapon and the location and write them in the manner of a Clue response. For example, Charlotte in the apiary with a swarm. We all then had to guess the victim based on this information. The answer is Sir Walter Elliot (well, of course it's Mr. Collins). :-)

Here are some clues. Can you guess the victims? Click here for answers
