(1) Derived from the expression "zijn zwanegang" (old dutch "swaenegang") which stands for "his last walk", "his final act".
(2) Rose is French for both Rose and Pink, but I am told the flower is the better translation (as a rose can be red).
(3) Pre-1996.
(4) Señor Pizarro resembles the word "pizarra" which is Spanish for Blackboard.
(5) Some accents are not supported by the Western European character encoding so I have represented a missing accent in superscript immediately after the letter the accent should be over. e.g.:
  cv is like an â but the accent is the other way up and for a c
  u° is like an å for a u
  d- is a d with a line through the top bar
  c/ is a c with an acute accent (like an é)
(6) Virtanen is the most common surname in Finland and so could be translated to Smith.
(7) The card shows Eteishalli, but the rulebook only shows Halli.
(8) This is the original Swiss version, which combined characters from the three Swiss languages: French, German and Italian. This version is no longer used and instead, Switzerland now get the French, German and Italian games sold separately.
(9) 2000 French edition has Manoir Le Hibou in the rules but Manoir Tudor in the press article on the front cover and in the rules!
(10) tohtori Mustapippuri (Dr. Blackpepper), eminent ethnologist and author, was murdered in his manor near Tampere, Finland
(11) Post-2003
(12) Miss Flame: The colours scarlet and red are both covered by the word "kokkino" in Greek, but "Despoinis Kokkini" would have literally the same meaning as "scarlet woman", i.e. "whore".
(13) Kifisia = the posh suburb of Athens
