The Mysterious Man in Black murder mystery now available!

Like many other things in the COVID era, my follow-up murder mystery arrived after a little delay and play-testing via Skype! But I’m proud to say it’s finally here!

It’s the Fourth of July, 1957! In Freewell, Nevada, however, folks aren’t too keen to celebrate, not with a recent disappearance and rumors of aliens!

The Mysterious Man in Black is a classic murder mystery party game set in a retro, conspiracy-laden small town, great for beginners, seasoned mystery lovers, and role-playing game fans alike! 

Designed for eight players, this party game takes approximately 3 hours. It can be played in a virtual space or in person. 

Find it for free on Itch.io or Gum Road!
