Description Edit | History

A murder mystery style game. You must collect clues from different rooms, but you have only a limited time before the train reaches the station. If you don't catch the culprit before then, the killer will escape. It is unique in that the solution is NEVER 100% sure. You must make some logical assumptions to get the killer. The killer is different each time based on a number of prewritten murder cases (extras are sold separately).

6 Homemade Case- Steak Knives (for the Jumbo edition)
A brand new case I've created for the Jumbo edition of Orient Express. The file can be printed out and cut up without reading it, making it playable by the person who downloaded it. There are 4 sheets, they need to be printed 1&2 back to back, and 3&4 back to back, making sure the card is flipped horizontally, not vertically. Then you can cut out the cards across the perforation lines and each card will have the information on the back (to double check you can hold the printout up to the light looking at the card fronts. This will show you if there are any areas where you need to be careful without revealing any info). Hope you enjoy it, and if there are any questions please ask. Cheers.

6 The Black Sheep (encrypted)
This is an encrypted version of my mystery entitled "The Black Sheep". All the text on all the clues, super clues and the solution are highlighted in black. Simply change the highlighted areas to white (or the text to white) and you can find out what people have to say and who done it.

This is a plain text version of the encrypted mystery entitled "The Black Sheep". Everything is in plain text right down to "it was the butler what done it."

An alternative A4 format to Jumbo's detective notepad which I find makes the cases easier to visualise (Open Office document).
