Description

Set out some snacks or a dinner, put on some music for atmosphere, and get ready to have a great party game with laughs, drama, suspense, surprises, and accusations. This murder mystery party game is easy to put on and the writing and mystery will make for a memorable evening. Everyone enjoys these mystery stories and working together to sleuth the clues to who the murderer is. There is a lot of rich story and detail, but in the end everyone either figures it out, or just about does. It all depends on how clever the murderer is.

There are eight characters in this murder mystery party game, each player takes on the role of a character in the mystery, each is a suspect, one is the murderer. There is also an auxilary character who is not guilty but has access to all the evidence, and can play like everyone else, so more than eight can play the game. To win, a majority of the group must identify the murderer correctly by studying the clues and cross examining the other players. The murderer will try to derail the investigation through lies and deceit.
Each character has a narrative, the story that tells what they did, and saw, and know. Each character knows just a piece of the story and a few things about some other characters.

Murder Mystery for 8-12 players. Play is timed at 2.5 hours with dinner, or 1.5 hours without. Written for adults 18 and up. Costumes are a lot of fun, but optional, as the game works great as theater of the mind.

Game pieces:
Each character has their own personal narrative that tell what they did, saw, and know.
There is a map of the murder scene and surrounding area so you can keep track of everyone’s movements.
There is a police report that describes the murder scene and evidence, and has suspect statements.
There are crime scene pictures that show the victim and other kinds of evidence.
There are a stack of clue cards, they are the rumors and witness statements that come to light throughout the game.

Each of these have important clues.
After everyone has made their guess, open that answer sheet and read how the murderer did it. There is also a prologue the tells what happens to the characters afterwards.

The story:
It is the waning years of the Hyskos (Sea Peoples) domination of parts of Egypt. In the developing power vacuum many minor and Pharonic nobles struggle to elevate their family lineage and establish political power. In the wake of these intrigues are others; priests, merchants, and commanders jostling to attach themselves to the nobles who they think will come out on top. Throw into this mix the still simmering struggle to throw off the yoke of their oppressors along with the craven lust, greed, and deception of human affairs and you end up with an entangled hive of human endevor that just boggles the mind! Then someone dies.

I have done a few of these murder mystery games by now, and I will say these are the best murder mystery games I've ever played! Super fun! The only downside, I would say, is that there needs to be more proofreading. The typos get to be pretty bad, and especially this Steampunk had one of the character's names different across various clues, making us think it was 2 different people until we realized some of the names were just typos and they were actually the same person.
