The letter came as a shock. You thought nobody knew your secret, and certainly that you had no enemies who might know. But you guess you were wrong. And now here you are, at the isolated Clockfield Manor in the American North-East, at the express invitation of Nathaniel Ingram, a wealthy socialite. He apparently wishes to discuss how many people you’d like this secret to be shared by, and licensing arrangements. There will, he says, be a fee.
Oh, there’ll be a fee alright. But it won’t be you he pays it. Tonight, Nathaniel Ingram dies.
And One of You Did It.
One of You Did It is clearly, even blatantly inspired by the 1985 cult-classic Clue: A group of people in the 1950s are brought together into an isolated house, threatened with blackmail, and then the blackmailer is murdered. As the night goes on, more and more murders will commence as events spiral out of hand. At some point, when we decide the game is running out of steam, someone will announce that they’ve solved the murders and we will gather for the incredible explanation they put forward.
Please note, you may be the murderer. (Indeed, there’s a fair chance everyone is going to wind up murdering someone during the night, maybe even “on camera”.) If so, just run with it! This is not a game for deep characterisation and strong drama. It’s a silly black comedy that should turn on a dime and allow for broad characters, twisty motivations and plenty of farce. Whatever entertains us and amuses us should guide our hand. Let’s have some good old fashioned murderous fun.
See you at the Manor.
