Game Master (8 people)



As a Game Master, you have the following tasks: 


-Give the roles to the players. You can assign a number to each of them or, if you want it to be random, ask them to choose a number.

-Present the case. Read them the introduction or make them read.

-Dynamize the case, if you see the players are stuck.

-Moderate, if you see they discuss inappropiately.

-Offer clues each 15 minutes.


It is better if you already know the case. In case you don’t, you can still be a moderator, present clues and participate like another player.

Now, let’s play!!

1. Read the presentation of the case

Read the presentation out loud or send them the following link:



Today at 4pm, Peter Van Trial has been found and confirmed dead in the restaurant “The Corner of Sarrini”. The confusion was spread all over the place, since the body was still sitting in the chair, with a knife stabbed in his belly. The table was in the middle of the restaurant, during daylight. Weird circumstances, although only two more customers were in the restaurant at the moment; an old man and his daughter.

Peter Van Trial was a businessman, manager of the investments of many companies. 43 years, married, no kids. Apparently, he entered the restaurant with his business colleague, who left minutes later. He then waited for his wife, they agreed to meet up there, but when she did he was dead already.

The other people in the place were shocked, including the chef, the waiter and the owner of the restaurant.

Who could have done such a terrible atrocity?!


The participants have 60 min to solve the puzzle. Each 20 min you may reveal a new clue. Clues are helpful but not indispensable to unveil the mystery.

2. Assign roles

Each player will be a suspect.

You can assign each role yourself or do it randomly:

-If you assign them yourself, send each of the Character files to each of the players:

    • Chef
  • Owner
  • Waiter
  • Old man
  • Young woman
  • Colleague
  • Wife

-If you want it randomly, send them the following link and assign them one number.

(IMPORTANT: they must read only ONE character file)

3. Begin game

Time to play! Let them discuss!
Recommendation: make each of them present their characters before starting.
You can help them (but not too much!). If someone is too quiet, you can also make them talk.

4. Reveal clues

iF needed, you may reveal the following clues each 15 minutes, so:


1st CLUE (after 20 min)

2nd CLUE (after 40 min)
