It's 1965 and Maudlin College, Oxbridge, England, is hosting its annual summer ball.
It should be a time to celebrate – but the evening is more sedate than planned; as the musicians arrived this evening, the Head Porter announced that Beth Garnet, one of this evening's student honorees, was found dead in her room.
There are whispers about that Beth lost her life because of her involvement in espionage...
If that is true, can she be the only secret agent in the college?
(What do you think!)
The Spy Who Killed Me 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, knives, banker's drafts, and so on), and abilities (that let them detect secrets find out information about other people).
The Spy Who Killed Me has a number of different plots to keep everyone busy. As well as the murder to solve, there are scholarships to be won, a position on the rowing team to be filled, secret agents to be identified - and more!
In my opinion, once you've played an interactive murder mystery game, you won't want to go back.
The cast of The Spy Who Killed Me includes:
Instead of a formal dinner party, The Spy Who Killed Me 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 Spy Who Killed Me 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 Spy Who Killed Me is available from Freeform Games and costs $29.99 USD.
