A Game of Skill

     Stewart studied his cards carefully. He knew he was running out of time.
     “Well?” asked Alec. “What are you going to do?”
     “Okay,” said Stewart, deciding to follow his gut instinct. “I’m going to guess Colonel Mustard bludgeoned Uncle Pennybags to death with the shoe… in Europe.”
     Alec took a deep breath as he opened the secret envelope. Moments later, a grin spread across his face.
     “Ha! Read it and weep.” Alec held the cards up for Stewart to see. “It was Miss Scarlet and the top hat. That little mistake will cost you half your army and all your hotels in Africa.”
     Stewart cursed under his breath. He always lost at Cluopolrisk.
