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 16 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! 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. The boxed version of this game is now available - see the link below under 'helpful links.'
Game content contains violence associated with the details of a murder, cult activities, and alcohol.
There are 13 required videos to play during the game consisting of two videos from Detective Chapman and 11 witness interrogation videos. You can download the videos from your account upon purchase, stream from YouTube or Vimeo, or download from Vimeo. 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.
Game release date: November 2018
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:
Have you ever wanted to be a famous criminal psychologist assisting a homicide detective to solve a nationally-publicized case? Here is your chance to step into the shoes of Dr. Gold and embark upon a wild and frenzied challenge where you will accept Detective Chapman’s request and delve into the sordid lives of eleven witnesses to see if they might be guilty of a heinous murder. Detective Philip Chapman has called upon you for help, as the murder of Abigail Ross is receiving international attention and is trending on all platforms of social media. It is the 48-hour mark after the murder, and you will now step into the role of Dr. Casey Gold – a top criminal psychologist who directs the BAU (Behavioral Analysis Unit) of the FBI. Time is of the essence, and no stone should be left unturned. Can you solve the case before the murderer gets away?

As a superintendent for a small school district I looking for a teambuilding activitiy for staff and faculty, I hit the jackpot for teambuilding in this product. I sent out the Murder Mystery invitations to staff and faculty prior to my arrival on campus. When I arrived at the meeting place the participants were ready to go. I divided the group into two teams and followed the instructions. While neither team accurately identified the murderer, I heard multiple conversations about where they went wrong in their thinking. The next day the group came together for another teambuilding activity but continued to talk about the murder mystery and how they went home rethinking the case! Dr. Lugo on Oct 8th 2019
We ordered this for our daughters bday ( she is 23) and played as a group! She was bringing home her boyfriend for the first time and it was a BLAST!!!! What a great ice breaker for the weekend!
Was great to play as a group and hear everyones input. Each person seemed to notice details that were not noticeable to everyone.
We will definitely be downloading more mysteries! Jessica on Mar 19th 2019
Catch a Killer was the second game we've purchased from My Mystery Party, and it was by far our favorite! Being able to solve a murder on our time and without requiring everyone to participate/dress up was awesome!
This mystery, in particular, was very challenging and will find you working hard to get all the details! I strongly suggest you use every bit of evidence available to you. Each item has information on it to help you understand the bigger picture!
It was hard for us to decide WHEN to go from 48 to 72 hours, but I think once you are comfortable with several potential suspects, it is a good point to do that.
There were a couple of details we were unsure about, and figuring how to tackle all the evidence was a little challenging, and we still have some questions that weren't really answered in the solution.
Overall, we really loved this and look forward to the next one! Unknown on Mar 2nd 2019
This murder case was fun and challenging. It was a nice mix of clues and video interviews. You for sure need a group of people that are actually excited to play and have patience to go through all the clues. That being said it was engaging, fun, and a great challenge. Crystal B. on Jan 26th 2019
