Catch a Killer | The Nevermore Strangler.

Catch a Killer | Nevermore Strangler

Instantly downloadable upon purchase (PDF, Website Access, Videos)
  • Product Description

     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 videos, coroner's reports, suspect profiles, and more.  This will provide you with hours of entertainment (~3-5 hours). This is a case of a serial killer - therefore, it is intense! 

      No annoying subscription required - solve the case in one setting.  This is the instant download - download and play without any delay - avoid shipping fees. 

      This game is for ages 16 and up for difficulty and dark content (it's a serial killer), 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!   This is the instant download upon purchase. You'll have everything you need to play the game at click of a button once you purchase the game. No need to wait, no shipping fees. 

     There will be 5 required videos to play during the game consisting of 3 videos from Detective Rue and 2 witness interviews. There will be some audio tracks that are required, as well. You can download the videos and tracks from your account upon purchase, stream from YouTube or Vimeo, or download from Vimeo.  The videos/tracks 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. 

    Game release date: May 12, 2020


     PLAY SOLO OR AS A GROUPthere 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:


    1. 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).
    2. 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.

You will accept Special Agent Rue's request for assistance and probe the lives of six suspects in hopes of catching the elusive and cunning killer known as the Nevermore Strangler. This un-sub has terrorized the eastern seaboard for weeks and is now toying with the investigators, daring to be caught. It is the 48-hour mark since the FBI took over the case, and you must make haste and get to work. Time is not your friend. Can you solve the case before more lives are claimed?

    1. I loved this game

    2. GREAT!

      it was so much fun playing this one although i wish there were photos of evidence and/crime scenes to really make it feel like a real case . on Jan 5th 2021

    3. Fun party game

      Had a few friends over and we played this mystery. It was really fun though a bit easier than the last one we did. Still it made the night and didnt take too long. Definitely recommend and will be buying again soon! on Dec 20th 2020

    4. Worth it

      I wanted to try something new. I did get a good return on my investment. I was nervous at first how it would be received by my guests. Lots of reading. It needed for the level of detail. The birthday girl solved it where no one else could. I used the vimeo links for the videos because the you tube ones were not great. I would consider buying another.... on Nov 17th 2020
