In June 1947, an Idaho pilot reported seeing a string of nine shiny unidentified flying objects flying past Mount Rainier at speeds of 1,200 miles an hour.
One week later, something crashed near Roswell, New Mexico (population 25,000). An experimental aircraft? A weather balloon? A secret military project?
Or something else?
Two days later and Roswell has visitors. It is noon, July 3, 1947.
The Roswell Incident 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 guns, crash debris, and so on), and abilities (that let them detect secrets find out information about other people).
In my opinion, once you've played an interactive murder mystery game, you won't want to go back.
While The Roswell Incident has a murder (poor Macready...), the game mainly concerns the mystery surrounding the object that crashed nearby.
The cast of The Roswell Incident includes:
Citizens of Roswell
Roswell Army Air Field
(Some of these may be more than they seem!)
Instead of a formal dinner party, The Roswell Incident 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 Roswell Incident also 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.
You will be taken to the Freeform Games LLP website - follow the instructions to purchase The Roswell Incident.
Just download the game, print it out and have a great murder mystery!
