The Karma Club is a 1960s hippy-themed murder mystery party for 10 to 14 guests (plus one host) published by Freeform Games.
The Karma Club is set in the lodge of the Karma Club commune in Wells River, New Hampshire.
The commune has been hosting a sending-off party for their guests, rock band Marmalade Skies.
However, the evening has taken a turn for the worse and Marvin Stank, the band's manager, has been murdered...
The Karma Club is an interactive murder mystery game, so all the players receive complete details of their character, including a detailed backstory, objectives that they must try to achieve, and information about other characters.
Characters also have item cards (that represent contracts, a diary, a record collection and so on), and abilities (that let them detect secrets find out information about other people).
The Karma Club has a number of different plots to keep everyone busy such as:
In my opinion, once you've played an interactive murder mystery game, you won't want to go back.
The cast of The Karma Club includes:
The Karma Club commune
Visitors and Townspeople
Instead of a formal dinner party, The Karma Club is better suited to a buffet meal or finger food.
Everyone needs to be able to talk quietly with each other - to plot and scheme and achieve their goals.
The Karma Club needs a dedicated host, someone to organise the game.
I really enjoy being the host - you know what's going on and can watch your friends scheme and plot and be devious to one another.
The Karma Club is available from Freeform Games and costs $29.99 USD.
