These games are designed so that there are several suspects, each with a detailed character background and notes.
Other guests, if you have them, can be assigned as investigators. They will have clues and will have the job of solving the crime.
Those guests with a role to play can also try to solve the crime - it depends on how many guests you have!
Note that one character background isn't telling the whole truth - which means that even if you're playing the murderer, you won't necessarily know it yourself!
The Mysteries on the Net party games cost between $27.77 and $79.77 (US dollars) with most in the $33.77 -$37.77 range.
You can use a currency converter to check the approximate cost in your own currency.
