5-Minute Mystery, a fast-paced, co-operative, real-time board game, launches on Kickstarter November 26 at 11:00 am EST, from award-winning game publisher, and creators of 5-Minute Dungeon, Wiggles 3D.
The ideal blend of frantic chaos and careful deduction, 5-Minute Mystery is a perfect fit for casual and seasoned gamers alike. In this high-intensity game, players work together to find a culprit hidden in a line-up of suspects while racing against the clock.
The priceless MacGuffin was stolen from the Museum of Everything by some crafty criminal! Now it’s up to you, a team of detectives, to crack the case, find the culprit, and recover the missing MacGuffin.
With no time for methodical observation, and a stack of shady suspects to sift through, communication and teamwork are the name of the game, crucial to recovering the stolen MacGuffin. Case files change the rules each time you play, making every game a new challenge.
$35 CDN (approx. $26.30 USD) Standard Edition – For 1-4 players, work with your friends to solve the mystery and catch the thief before time runs out.
$45 CDN (approx $33.80 USD) Mastermind Edition – For 1-6 players, includes everything from the standard edition, plus support for up to two extra players, additional scenes and cases for even more replayability, and ultra-challenging Mastermind Cases.
The excitement comes to Kickstarter November 26 at 11 am EST and runs until 1pm EST on December 19th, with an Early Bird Special of $5 off the first 500 copies of both the Standard Edition and the Mastermind Edition. The Wiggles 3D team is also offering all backers of their previous projects a free upgrade to the Mastermind Edition.
