After a few plays, I noticed a problem with this game: the Forsenic Scientist always struggles with just indicating the weapon. What I mean is is that the scientist is so bent on indicating the weapon that the ecidence left behind is getting lost in the background. Most of the weapons don't line up with evidence, so that also poses a problem. Does anyone know how I can fix this problem?

I remind the players that the clues given can lead to BOTH the weapon and the evidence left behind.

For instance, I played School as a location. This got the players to think about possible weapons such as Packing Tape, Metal Chain and Dumbells. But it also got them to think about evidence left behind such as Chalk, Mask, Violin, and Dirt. (The murder was Packing Tape and Mask.)

For my group so far (and I've taught two different groups) emphasizing that the clues could lead to either the weapon or the evidence (and possibly both) just seems to work out so far.

Also, once a game has been completed, be sure to talk about reasons why clues were played. Maybe once they see that *this clue* pointed to the evidence they will (in a way) become better detectives. I think that's a cool part of the game!
