For the cheerfully pessimistic detective!

1. Your client did it.

2. Buying Advanced Thread Analysis means that all threads immediately disappear from the crime scene.

3. The question you need answered most is the one the witness clams up on.

I'm sure more experienced players can add to the list. Care to have a go?

I thnk this is always a good post to cheer Newbies up and let them know they're not alone. Most of thr good stuff is at the start :)
Happy Sleuthing all!

You have the barber as a contact...you solve an AI with 4 threads, but not one with 3 hairs... *bangs head against computer*

A bad day for Vegos:

Turned up 2 heavy footprints on the crime scene.
Only one out of 8 suspects is slim.
3 suspects take the Shoe maker for their alibi.
The research eliminates the slim suspect.

lol I feel for you Vegos. I am looking at a screen shot I saved a couple of nights ago where I had 1 PE for the barber and 7 suspects queued up to have their hair cut. Funnier still one was Croesy (he's one of the few bald avatars around), and that's just taunting me!

This one is dedicated to my good friend Mr. Flaps...

You're on an AV hunt (in Dheli) and only need one more hint as to the Villians Hideout. Spend three grueling days solving AI cases only to get the same two hints. Then when you finally get that last hint you're one case short of moving to the next city.

Yup been there too my ole friend....

* Sits back and pours a stiff one from portable bar* Cheers ole chap

Unsubscribed so far (broke for a month then I get my first paycheck, wheee) and 3 out of 4 cases had the client turn up as the guilty party. If it happens in my 4th case too, well, I hope Murphy goes bother someone else tomorrow.

RAAARGH! Does getting 3 different handwritings on the CS count as a 'bad Murphy day'?

You click on Accuse Suspect instead of Ask for Alibi, and then Yes [accuse suspect] instead of No, and you get a false accusation and have to pay Shady. (It was late...)

[Quote from Secret Squirrel in this same thread]

Been there done that. Sleeping while you're playing Sleuth is a deadly mistake. :) - and it was my 2nd FA after carrying around one FA for months - and after I paid Shady, I got another FA within just a few days in the exact same way!

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. :s

I think that's another Murphy's law right there...FA's like to hang out in groups of two. Every single time I've gotten one, I've gotten another pretty soon after.

Stupid peer pressure!
