I grew up loving mysteries. Everyone told me that nothing useful would come of it. They were wrong. I am now studying to become a private investigator!

I am looking for the solution to a book that was called "THE MURDER GAME". It was written by Bruce Cassiday. The book came out in 1992 and was a contest with a $10,000 reward.Please e-mail me at if you know how I can obtain the answer.Thank you.

Note: Since other Community members may also be interested please also post the answer here.

Make new friends but keep the old; one is silver and the other gold.

Hi pierre...I have a copy of "Who Killed the Robins Family" in one of the boxes in my attic,along with the rest of the skeletons. I entered the contest and do have the solution in that book. Sorry I can't remember who did it, but I will look it up and get back with you.

I love murder mysteries (but I'm not too hot at solving them! - I'd like the oppurtunity to learn)

There's a FANTASTIC murder mystery series on in England, called Jonathan Creek. Anyone seen it? I solved two of the mysteries - but they're really difficult!

I was reading over some of the things that you all said and I had a question. What exactly are murder mystery books? They sound really interesting. Please let me know.

Not sure where to put this post but this seems as good a place as any.

I came across a really cool idea in an article about metagames by Richard Garfield the other day. It seems that at MIT they have a weekend where they hide a coin somewhere on campus and the students try to find it. OK so we're talking big campus, small coin - so how do they find it?

Well they produce a large number of puzzles (150+) with no one puzzle type dominant or to important and the solutions to these puzzles either give clues to the location of the coin OR gives clues to the solutions of other puzzles. In some cases the solution to one puzzle were the instructions for another puzzle. etc.

Has anyone had any experience of this? Or any ideas of how this could be run (either in real life or in cyberspace)?

Puzzles-Anyone interested in swapping puzzles? I have every "clue" puzzle released so far but only a couple of the Be-Puzzled (I really enjoy them too!) Also the old Columbo and Muder She Wrote puzzles! A while ago someone was looking for "Games" magazines. I have every issue since inception, there was two stoppages when it folded after it went to monthly, and it was bought but they had the wrong staff, it was bought again and it is back to what it was in the beginning! Their published by Be-Puzzled! They also have quite a few of their giant books of games available at bookstores in all different formats. I would love one of just all eyeball benders!!
