Catch a Killer | Murder of Benjamin Crum Party Pack
The Catch a Killer case file mystery games are a one of a kind experience. Unlike our other mystery games, the Catch a Killer games are not role-playing and may be played solo or with a group. Instead, you step into the shoes of a famous criminal psychologist, Dr. Gold, and help solve whodunit by sleuthing a case file full of evidence such as interrogation videos, coroner's report, call logs, and more. This will provide you with hours of entertainment (~3-5 hours).
This game is for ages 15 and up for difficulty, and may be played solo or with a group of any size. This game is not for novices - only choose this game if you're in for a challenge and serious sleuthing!
No annoying subscription required - solve the case in one setting.
This murder case game contains references to murder, mobsters, and violence.
There will be 13 required videos to play during the game consisting of 2 videos from Detective Chapman and 6 witness interrogation videos, 3 vlogs from the victim and 2 follow up interviews. You can stream from YouTube or Vimeo, download from Vimeo, or access a password protected website that has direct links to the videos. The videos are able to be downloaded prior to the game - so no WiFi is needed to host the game. There is a corresponding website at Your Mystery Party that goes along with the game, as well - but does not have to be used to play the game. It is helpful, however. Check all links to websites and passwords, as well as video files before your event if you are hosting this with other people. Since there are a lot of moving parts, you don't want any technical difficulties bogging you down.
Official release date: 8/10/19
PLAY SOLO OR AS A GROUP: there is a lot of flexibility on how to play this game. You can play by yourself and solve the case in one night or spread out the fun and intrigue over time and work on the case at your leisure. You can take your time and spread out the fun over multiple nights – this is a challenging game.
Alternatively, you can host a party (or two or three) and solve the case as a group. There are two ways to play with a group:
- Work together as an investigative team. Don’t move on with the case unless everyone agrees or at least debates the issues until you have an agreement (or you agree to disagree).
- Work together on the investigation but have each player (or smaller teams of players) submit an individual guess of whodunit. The materials will be available to the group equally, but each player (or team) will take notes and come to conclusions independently. They can discuss the case, but with a competitive edge. You can declare winners after the solution is presented.
