MYSTERY GAMES (REVISED FROM OLD SITE)
The Game Master (a neutral) will put forward a scenario with a set of characters. Other members then request to be in the game and the GM allocates each character to a member. Then, the game will begin in chapters:
The Game Master MUST know all answers. Other players will say things such as:
I would like to explore the Billiard Room
I would like to check page 274 of Roget's Thesaurus
However, it cannot be so vague as:
I would like to explore the Billiard Room for clues
When you are in a room, you must be specific as to what part of the room you wish to explore. When the Game Master decides a chapter is over, all players vote for a character to be killed off. The idea is to kill the character responsible for whatever the crime is. When we get to the last two, if the culprit survives, he/she wins and kills the other survivor. If the culprit is killed, all other people win the game OR a new crime is committed - that is up to the Game Master.
Are you up for it?
