  • I am about to use this resource but I just thought I'd let you know that you can actually solve the problem in 5 clues instead of 6. If you made two of the last three suspects blonde then it would work perfectly.

  • My 9-year-old son absolutely loved this!  He wants lots more of this kind of resource please.  I can see a lot of work has gone into this and it was brilliant as a revision tool.  Pleased to say he found the murderer!

    • Hi sjpalfer,
      Thank you for your fantastic suggestion! Because we receive so many lovely requests each day, we are unfortunately unable to make all of the resources requested (although we do our best!) If we can make your resource we will be in touch to let you know, though we cannot guarantee when it will be completed. If there is anything else I can help with, please let me know! Have a great day :)
