There are some puzzles that require sorting out many possible clues, such as The SErial Killer's killer and Mysterious Murder Mystery 3. They are often mysteries. What is a good way to organize and look at the clues in these types of puzzles?

  • $\begingroup$ @d'alar'cop I agree, that could be a actually a good question in general and with enough clarifications would probably make a good chat topic, however for a Q&A would'nt the answers still be largely opinion based $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @d'alar'cop yes that's exactly my point this is primarily opinion based and hence not acceptable as a question on SE, of course there could be other opinions and I respect them, but still felt it was important to voice mine $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ In my puzzle, I recommend that you treat everything as important unless you are 100% sure it's not important. $\endgroup$
