An unidentified corpse? Clearly he can't be linked to any
one of us. I say let's get on with the holiday celebration!
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!
