♥:::::::::::::: A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US :::::::::::::: ♥

We are an English mother (Michelle) and daughter(Leanne) team. We have been creating unique artwork on Etsy in our main shop The Arty Apples since 2012. We produce both hand drawn art as well as Computer Digital art and word art. We decided to setup this "Crime" shop during lockdown 3 in the UK. We needed things to do as a family. We trialed a popular crime game however we felt it was lacking something so our first case was born. It was well received by our product testers and customers. Based on their comments we fine tuned the game and its available to buy today; Sugar Coated murder. We have also since released a new case The Drowning

LOTS of love and many thanks!

This is tabletop detective case file. It is a simulated crime game of a cold case murder. You need to solve the case at home using the evidence we provide. The evidence will be in many formats including witness statements, receipts, digital forensics including phone and email records. Website searched, CCTV data and much more. This is an ideal date night game or a family game to do with older kids. Fun for all ages

How to play?

We suggest you proceed through the evidence in the order supplied initially. You can open the photo pack and attach to the suspect forms if you would like using staples or paperclips(not supplied) or just have them loose on the table, they will be named for ease. When you get to the evidence envelope (cases 2-4 ONLY) open this and examine the contents. When you reach the end you can refer back to find the killer. If you get stuck we do have the option to access clues online. The conclusion is accessed via a link to our website provided in the pack. You will need access to a computer to access the clues/conclusion. Have Fun playing!
