As Grandmaster Oogway once said: ‘Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present.’ But what if you also wanted today to be a mystery? Well, then we’ve got some suggestions for you! Here is our selection of mystery games.

Paranormal Detectives

Detectives and ghosts are like peanut butter and jelly. And in this game, you’ll play as either a detective OR a ghost. The beauty in it is that you have to find out who killed said ghost by using a series of charming mini-games like making the ghost whisper or use pieces of wire to create the outline of an object or use tarot cards. These mini-games give a brand new flavor to the old mystery, and for that reason, it is one of our favorites!

Unlock! Mystery & Escape Adventures

Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective

Do you like your mysteries to come with a little bit more storytelling and a little less board game bonanza? Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective is just that. This game is an easy-to-learn, hard-to-master deductive masterclass that is jam-packed with theme. It allows you to roam the streets of Victorian London as a great detective and try your best to solve interesting cases.

Exit: The Game

Want to get that adrenaline pumping in these boring times? How about we offer you a perfect blend between mystery and horror? We’re talking about Exit: The Game, of course. The beauty of this game also comes with this: it’s a single-use game. It is meant to be folded, torn up, written on, and so on. But if you’ve failed to exit, it is the end of the line.

We hope some of these mysterious and spooky games made you feel adventurous enough to try some out. We know we are intrigued by them. If you’d like to get your hands on any of these or similar games, be sure to check out our online shop
