What is a Murder Mystery?
出典 : Amazon.co.jp
Murder Mystery is a mystery game that is a combination of a riddle, a werewolf game and a TRPG.
Just like a TRPG, each player is assigned a character and pursues the truth of the case while talking to the other participants.
One of the characteristic rules is “secret talks”.
In the midst of a large group discussion, players can designate a specific player to have a conversation with just the two of them.
This secret talk leads to rampant secret sharing, collusion, backstabbing and backstabbing.
It’s as if you’ve really become a character in a suspenseful drama, where the two feelings of “don’t let them know my secret” and “I want to know the truth” come together in this detective game.
What are some things to keep in mind when playing?
Before I introduce you to a beginner’s scenario, here are some quick points to keep in mind.

The number of people in the room should be just right
Murder Mysteries cannot be played with a missing number of people.
If the scenario designation is for a minimum of 10 people, the scenario must have a minimum of 10 people to be able to play.
If someone is unable to attend on the day of the event, you will need to reschedule or find a substitute.
You may need a game master
Some Murder Mystery scenarios require a facilitator, called a GM (Game Master).
In this case, one of the players must be experienced or have read the scenario in advance and know the ending of the game.
If you play in a store at first, you can rest assured that the clerk will be the GM.
