Explaning Cluedo

Walt explain a game or sport using descriptive language

My game I explained was clue-do because my Mum taught it to me and its my favourite board game.

 Explaining Cluedo

Cluedo is a mystery game including 6 characters; Peacock, White, Scarlet,
Green, Plum and Mustard. They have all been invited to a party in a mansion
which is the setting of the game.The point of the game is to find out which one
of the characters are holding the host of the party hostage. 

To set up the game you must shuffle all the cards. There are two decks,
one deck has all the weapons, characters and settings while the other has
instruction cards and time cards. The first deck you split into the three
categories and then you take one off the top of each separate deck and put
them in a special envelope, for the rest of the cards you have to hand them
out evenly. The second deck you take 1 card of the top when you land or roll
a question mark. If it’s a time card you lose 1 hour to find the kidnapper. If it’s
not a time card you are safe for now but there are instructions on the card
you have to follow. Now you grab a guessing sheet and before you start, you
mark all of the clue cards.    



There are many ways to guess who is the kidnapper. One way is to say 2 of
your cards and say one you don't have. The way that works is because if the
challenger says they don’t have the card you don't have you know that
particular card is in the envelope. Another way is to say three things you don't
have. When you guess the person that your asking may show you one of the
cards that you asked. If they don't have one it will be one of the objects in the

If you get all the cards and they are in the envelope you
have won the game.

Gillian Lee

W.A.L.T Write a news report about a Australian mountaineer.

In May 2019 Gillian Lee an australian mountaineer attempted to climb Mount Everest without an oxygen tank. This was his 4th try but it didn't end very well. Gill decided to avoid the huge human traffic jam on the Nepal route and face the challenging and dangerous Tibet route on the north side of the Mountain.

At 7600m his body started to fail. Gill began coughing constantly, his lips turned blue and then his body switched off and he passed out for 3 hours. For both of his Sherpa guides, this was very concerning. So they dragged him to his tent. He was hauled into a sleeping bag and immediately his hands were being warmed and hot water bottles were thrown into the sleeping bag. If they didn’t start to descend to Base camp they would be risking Gills life. Gripping onto the sleeping mat they dragged him down the mountain.

Suddenly a miracle happened. At 6000m Chinese rope fixers appeared. The group helped the Sherpas to get Gill down the mountain. Then they struck rocky terrain. Because of all the stones, the mountaineer wouldn’t be able to slide so the called in a yak. When it arrived he was strapped onto the back off the beast and the yak handler started their 22km journey to Base camp.

Stiffly, Gill lay on the yaks back coughing up blood and slime. He said it was the most uncomfortable ride of his life. After 6 hours they arrived at their destination and almost immediately he was on a 20-minute ride to Kathmandu Hospital. 

Julie, Gillian's mum was waiting, seated next to his hospital bed worried sick. She was cross that Gillian could be that selfish to put many lives in danger including his own. He was lucky to have escaped death because if none of the Chinese rope fixers or Sherpas had helped he would have been one of the people to die on the slopes of Everest. No one knows if Gillian Lee, an extremely lucky man, will attempt to climb without oxygen again. I guess we will have to wait and see.
