I wonder if it has something to do with the smoke rising from it's chimney.
Why do we have to come to this terrible mansion?
Let's have a silent moment of prayer for Sam Westing, then we will start his game.

His last words are, "Remember, it doesn't matter what you have, focus on what you don't have."
