How do YOU Sleuth, I ask? :O Do you memorize alibis, etc., open Notepad, or what? Personally, I open Notepad. It makes the Sleuthing process much easier for me.

I think Ben's approach to making the game less predictable is to assure that every level has more than one possible number of suspects.

btw, I think Naomi's form is awesome, and will add this to my Mod picks unless someone has beaten me to it! Thanks.

Thus preserving the Fortune Teller's right to tell you what the fates say about the case, for $20. Hehe. ...Now if there was only a harder difficulty, with... two suspects! Base number of persuasion with both being... -10! The suspense!

And yay. Although it wasn't my post that did it, it's cool to have created a topic that was highlighted by a mod. ^^;

I use my head no pen or papper just memorize it. Besides i Have a system that works most of the time just by looking at a persons name i can figure out if they did it or not.

Just to back you up, Luniar, I'm a Notepad man, myself.

I tried holding my notes in short-term, but one instant message, one knock on my door, one Family Guy joke, and *poof!*

Couldn't risk it anymore!

Yes! Finally. A point for the Notepads!

I had the same problem as you, man. IMs and such took me away from my Sleuthing some of the time, so I forgot information... entirely. Especially on these harder cases. Six suspects' information is one thing, but eleven suspects' information is another.

I should mention that Sleuth helper is organised and worded the way my brain works... so if it's not to your liking (in terms of wording or layout), it's relatively easy to modify.

It was created using Notepad (yes, go Notepad) and html, so if you know a bit of html, you could quite easily change things around (for instance: changing 'restaurant' to 'waitress').

Right now if I had to pick. Number 1 would be no note taking what so ever, except during important favours for a treasure hunt. Number 2, would be Naomi's tool. :)

At home (which means, not here, frankly) I use the Quicknote extension for Firefox as to have a Notepad built into the browser. Besides, that means I can save notes even if I don't have enough time to finish my case. Firefox also has the advantage of what I call a dumb trick: it can go from one 'actor' to the next without having to go through the map screen.
