(Note that if you click on the link below and then buy A Will to Murder I will earn a small amount of commission.)
A Will to Murder is set in the 1930s in Albion House, a stately dwelling in the small English village of Highthorpe.
Albion House belonged to Roy O'Leary – who was murdered yesterday afternoon...
Roy O'Leary was elderly and wealthy, and there are several family members who may benefit from his last will and testament.
O'Leary's lawyer has asked the family to gather together at Albion House, the day after the murder, to hear the reading of the will.
The police are also present – because the O'Leary family are the prime suspects in the murder case...
It sounds like it should be a case for Miss Marple.
But as she's not present, who will solve the murder?
A Will to Murder is an interactive murder mystery game, which means that each player receives a detailed character booklet that includes a backstory, objectives for them to solve and information on other characters.
They may also have item cards (representing important clues) and abilities (that allow them to uncover secrets and information about other characters.)
In my opinion, once you've played an interactive murder mystery game, you won't want to play any other sort.
The cast of A Will to Murder includes:
A Will to Murder needs a dedicated host, someone to organise the game.
They will read the entire game and will be available to answer questions.
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.
A Will to Murder is available from Freeform Games and costs $29.99 USD.
