Meet Herculego Poirot, the world's greatest detective! This detective from Belgium uses his gray blocks of his brain to solve crime. He has books (prepared by his good friend Arthur
Hastings) that contain a collection of crime scenes. Poirot has had many cases in his famous career, and it's time that he's sharing his cases with you--in LEGO form.
What You Do
Your task, should you choose to accept, is to identify these scenes and write in your answer (the title of story). Answers submitted to this game are done using your Facebook
login. The scenes are based on the written works more than the television series. Poirot appeared in 33 novels and plenty of short stories--how familiar are you with them all? If you guess
correctly, you'll be a "stud" (LEGO joke) of the Internet community and the cleverest detective on the "block"!
In addition to identifying the LEGO scenes, there are challenge questions. For the "Herculego Challenge", you must select it to view/answer the challenge. Hints or clues on
some of the scenes will be left to you by friends of Poirot's, like Captain Hastings or Ariadne Oliver. These clues are identified by little icons of the characters. Please see below.
This icon of Herculego identifies a Herculego Challenge. Clink on the link (the question) to be challenged.
This icon of a Poirot ally signifies a Clue.
"Hidden" or alternate scenes can be discovered on some of the crime scenes you're viewing. It's up to you to find these, if you choose. Be warned: you may not like what you find!
(Possible spoilers, you see.) You'll know how many alternate scenes there are in each book by the number that follows the icon at the book's "header". These hidden images can be seen
on your mobile device like a phone or tablet, too.
The number of alternate scenes can be identified by this icon. These aren't exactly scenes, but different pictures or
perspectives. Be careful not to reveal too much to other visitors in your comments!
In Herculego's Book 1, there were 7 crime scenes from 7 different cases originally. These ranged from early stories to later ones. To see the 7 original scenes, click on the header "Book 1"
above or click here to see the gallery. Congrats to those who previously participated and successfully answered correctly. Case 6 has never been identified
correctly, however. If you know the answer, write it in the comments section below the gallery (this requires a Facebook login to participate).
In Herculego's Book 2, there are a total of 8 crime scenes from 8 different cases (they vary in difficulty). They cover all methods of murder. In this book, there will be one scene that is not where the murder took
place. Let's see if you can spot this. The scenes in LEGO you will see are primarily taken from the novels and short stories themselves. From time to time, they might resemble the crime
as seen from the television series Agatha Christie's Poirot.
Click on a case and study the photograph. When you have a shrewd idea of the story the photo is from, leave behind a comment (using your Facebook login) stating the story's title.
