The Dickens Murder Mystery Game for 10 players
It has been 23 years since Miss
Havisham was left at the altar by her
fiancé (Dickens Great Expectations).
Her Mansion is now in ruins and her
days are spent in a haze of madness.
A skeleton has been dug up on the
property. A mutilated, murdered corpse, that at least for
Miss Havisham must be her lost fiancé. Is it possible that after all these years she wasn’t in fact jilted? But who committed this atrocity? A plan is set forth, as the very guests
that were present on her wedding day 23 years ago receive invitations to
spend Christmas Eve at the Satis Manor, and within the Christmas
merriment a murderer will be unmasked.
This is a wonderfully dark and humorous role-playing dinner party game. Play as one of Charles Dickens most beloved characters as you unravel the mysterious murder at Sadis Manor all the while proclaiming your innocence!
A Christmas Eve like no other, as you discover the horrors of each of the dinner guests, and their alibis. Along with a few morbid Christmas Carols, this is one evening you won’t soon forget!

We had a BLAST!!! It was excellent. This was a really fun experience! I will admit
I was a bit anxious about hosting this but in the end it went so well! I was able to prepare with all the instructions you have so ably included in the game and I enjoyed it all even while playing the game myself!
Thank you for your creativity!

This will be the third party I have hosted of his! I’ve done the Fairytale, Titanic, and will do Dickens Christmas at the end of December. Can’t wait to find out the story!! The story lines are always so fun and surprising! Super fun!

Love the way the PDF file is set up. Makes it easy to print one section at a time or the entire thing. Although I plan on doing this game at my next year Christmas party, I wanted to purchase it now so I can start the printing and planning. I had a question and Gary responded quickly and provided me with my request and even threw in a surprise item! Although the game is for 10 people, I'm taking a suggestion and making teams of each character as needed. Also adding "staff" that will be able to ask a question. FYI if you have a HP printer, sign up for HP Instant Ink. The cheapest way to print at home with unlimited cartridges each month.
