This game I made up is called Mystery Solve. It it just like a book but it is, of course, a game. There are different mysteries for each game. You pick a card which has a clue on it for the mystery. The way you earn a card is if you can solve a hard riddle on a different card. When you think you know the mystery you tell every one. The first one to get it right wins.

It's in the planning stages for Jan/Feb. 2001 and possibly could have up to 10 families. Does anyone have info where I can find script....or whatever? Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any CLUES. :) Thanks

Every morning, we are given 24 golden hours. Even if you had all the money in the world, you couldn't buy another one. They are one of the few things in this world that are truly free. Spend them wisely.

If anyone is still reading or accessing this area, I have been writing mysteries for various pen & paper game systems (L5R, Cyberpunk, Call of Cthulhu, etc...) for some time now. I'm currently working on a game I'm calling Clue of Cthulhu which merges the characters and suspect eliminations of Clue with the horror and occult aspects of Cthulhu. If anyone is either looking for plots (or subplots, misleads, etc...), drop me a line.
