A horrible crime has been committed on the grounds of Warwick Manor and it's up to the psychic investigators to get to the bottom of it.

In Mysterium, one player takes on the role of the ghost and over the course of a week, tries to lead the investigators to their culprit. Each night the team will be met with visions, but what is the ghost trying to tell you? Can the psychics determine the weapon, location and killer or will a violent criminal pull off the perfect murder?

  • Fun family "activity". Get samey after a while but then can also use the cards to play dixit or detective club
  • Though it is a bit long, it is a fun mystery game of deducing abstract art. Playing as the ghost can either be the most fun for s player or the most frustrating.Replaced a bit by the similar, but faster playing Deception: Murder in Hong Kong.
  • I didn’t like this one as much as I had hoped. Played it with multiple groups and the ghost generally has a hard time giving helpful clues even at easier difficulty levels. The clue cards are REALLY abstract at times and I don’t like that the entire game hinges on three clue cards at the end regardless of how you did leading up to it. However, the art, theme and components are all very well done.
  • I'm generally not a fan of coops, and this one was pretty meh. The theme was kinda neat and the mechanics seemed interesting - ghost helping the psychics solve the mystery. But the clues (i.e. visions) were pretty rough to associate with the suspects, locations, and weapons. I don't think I'd recommend this game, but would probably join in if the group I'm playing it was interested.

Well I can't argue with her taste, I'm a big fan of #Monikers when there's the people to play it, or if I just want something light as well. It can cause a hell of a lot of laughs. But the urge for a big game constantly calls to me. 

In terms of the 2-3 games I feel are missing from my "introduce people to gaming" selection I managed to pick up one on Black Friday that an old friend had but I never had my own copy, #Mysterium. Which is a game that words for both sides. I find it's a great game for people starting out in the hobby, while at the same time just being niche enough to appeal to my own personal tastes. I'm thinking of getting #Wavelength in the near future but as far as the 3rd game goes it's a toss up between a few party game. Although I did back the #Creature Comforts KS as a way to weave in a worker placement game that's a little more complex than #Carcassonne

#7 Wonders (original, dunno about new edition) and #Mysterium fit these dimensions!

Really enjoy the vibe and ambience we get from #Mysterium !

I haven't played numbers 3 or 4, but I've been a fan of #Scotland Yard since I received it 35 years ago.  We rented #Mysterium last year from one of our local game stores.  We played it twice. Fun, but challenging in a different way and not one we would buy.  I personally am going to say the first on the list is better.

Having never played any, I think I would be most interested in #Mysterium. I don't think Scotland Yard or Whitechapel would interest me at all.

To help more easily compare, here's the links (I used the autocomplete feature by starting with the # in the text)

Always felt this would be enjoyable. Like that it can be competitive or cooperative. Def a fun #Clue Game meets #Mysterium feel to it. 

This sounds fun and something I could see myself playing. Kind of gives me #Mysterium vibes
