Current Stock:

A highly-challenging 1930's themed murder mystery party set on a train from NYC to Cleveland for 6-11 players, ages 17 and up for difficulty. There is not a victim-player in this game like most other games in our mingling/traditional catalogue. Also, this difficulty level is not for everyone - play this if your group is up for a challenge.  This game has required video content and a challenge that will require Wi-Fi access, as you'll be accessing a website.  This is the in-person, mingling game - the instant download version - no waiting, no hassle, no shipping fees, as nothing needs to be shipped. 

Note: this game does not have a forensic report or victim's sign - but instead has printed evidence to view, two challenges, and three required videos.

Built in 1891, the Buffalo Express is a luxury steam locomotive that makes five stops between New York City to Cleveland, Ohio. It's 1934, and the next voyage of the train will roll out from New York City with a fully-booked First-Class carriage. The train staff has ensured the food is fresh, the ice cubes are perfect squares, and every nook and cranny is free of dust. With this many VIPs onboard, everything must be in perfect order. You will be on the locomotive for the journey to Cleveland. This is where your story begins.
