Description Edit | History

This game attaches an interesting theme to a fairly standard Rummy framework. Playing Victims, Suspects, Scenes, and Evidence-melds, players try to build a case against various suspects for the famous Jack the Ripper serial murders. Whichever suit has the most cards played in it when a player goes out is the guilty party, but if all the Victim cards come out before the end of the game, the Ripper might escape, giving the player who produced that card a significant point allowance.

This is #1 in the Mystery Rummy series.

0 Wild West Rummy (Mystery Rummy Jack the Ripper redesign)
Hi folks, Here you have my redesign of Mystery Rummy inspired on the wild west and a little tribute to spaghetti western movies. Same game mechanic but these are the card mappings: outlaw => victim territory => scene suspect => bounty hunter sneak away => evidence lawless city => commissioner resigns great robbery => jack escapes break out of jail => jack attacks [imageid=2573643 medium] I hope you enjoy Wild West Rummy Far West Outlaw edition!!

15 Mystery Rummy Voting Cards
Simply print a set of these 6 voting cards for each player, then attach them to card stock or slide them into card sleeves for additional support. When a vote is called each player selects their suspect and places them face-down from the 6 Voting Cards in their set. Enjoy!
