A thriller in the MYSTERY TOWER for 2 to 6 good noses ears,10 years and up, by Alessandro Zucchini
Night in the "Arosa" hotel. Creaking floor boards, banging window shutters, strange noises. Behind the wafer-thin walls, no sound remains hidden from eavesdropping ears.
Suddenly: a bang! A scream! Hurried steps fade away …
Nobody saw anything! But everybody heard everybody else … There are clues from the hotel guests on all floors. But which of them will be discovered? And which of them will remain hidden? If you don’t want a murder rap pinned on you, you should lay the blame on the other players instead. Because one thing is for sure: the overwhelming evidence will convict the culprit.
The players arouse suspicion: they throw their clues (in the form of little wooden cubes) into the shaft of the hotel tower. If you prick up your ears, you‘ll be able to guess on which floors the suspicious clues come to rest. With this knowledge, you can denounce other players and cover your own tracks.
The culprit is the one who has left particularly suspicious clues in the vicinity of the scene of the crime. Whoever attracts the fewest suspicious facts, wins.
1 hotel (8 parts)

These are the rules of the Mord im Arosa variant that I made up for my 4 year old son. The regular game rules are a bit too involved for him so I invented this simplified version of the game which he really enjoys.
It's entirely luck based but then again so is snakes and ladders. It will play well for any number between 2 and 6 players but plays best with 3 or 4.
Ideally it needs at least one adult to play or supervise if for no other reason than to work out the winner and the score at the end of each round. The rules are all fairly simple though and should be no trouble to a child age 3/4+ to understand.

i did a summary sheet for myself just so i easily remember and refer to the flow of the game. it is done in point form and covers all important aspects that needs to be taken note of
you may print it and place it double sided into an A6 clear card sheet. it will then fit perfectly into the box. :)
you will have to manually hand cut it though, no lines provided
