This is ( in my opinion ) one of the greatest board games ever. It is so enjoyable and it is very educational because you really have to strain your brain if you want to do well. I recommend this and Monopoly as the two greatest board games. The game is played like this, somebody has been murdered and each player gets a group of cards and then 3 unknown cards are put in a package in the middle. The aim is to find out what those cards are, they must be a person, a weapon, and the room the murder was committed in. At the players turn he/she rolls the dice and then can go into one of the rooms, they can then say, for example 'I suspect colonel mustard, in the drawing room, with the candle stick', the room they say must be the room they are in. They must say that to somebody and if that somebody has the cards that the player just said, he/she can cross them of his/her list of suspects/rooms/weapons. The game can only be won by wit and deduction, and I recommend it to people who enjoy detective novels/shows because I imagine the same type of people would enjoy it.
