Casino Fatale

On the banks of the River Seine in Paris is the Hotel D'Etoile, with a casino named the Casino Fatale. Rumour has it that the casino is connected to the mysterious underworld character 'Mr X'. No one seems to know exactly who the elusive Mr X is, or what he looks like - and there are many people who would love to know. Among those trying to find Mr X are Interpol, the local police, the local organized crime family, and the agents of several countries in which Mr X is believed to operate. Tonight, however, a charity auction is being held at Casino Fatale and it has drawn all sorts to the casino - playboys, starlets, maybe even a jewel thief... Who will you play?

At Casino Fatale you will discover the following:

  • Who is the 'Black Panther'?
  • Why should you be very careful with your jewelery?
  • Who killed scientist Dr Havelott, and where are his plans for a nuclear device?
  • Who is the mysterious 'Mr X'?
  • Can Donovan Jones really write poetry?
  • ...and is the casino really up for sale?

Additional Information

Casino Fatale is unlike many murder mystery games. Although the game starts with a murder, most of the characters have more important things to do than to investigate it. And the killing may not be over - it is unlikely that everyone will survive the remainder of the evening!

Casino Fatale is played just like a murder mystery game. You may be trying to solve the murder, but primarily you are (initially at least) concentrating on your own goals and objectives. Unlike most boxed murder mystery games, Casino Fatale lets you decide how to achieve your goals and thwart your enemies.

On the evening of the game the guests are met by the organizer, the Casino Events Manager. They then receive their detailed backgrounds - including dark secrets, objectives and casino gambling chips. When everyone has arrived the host announces that the glittering evening and charity auction will now proceed. The fun then begins as everyone questions, bribes and blackmails each other. As the evening progresses they may even try to murder one another! Depending on what the players choose to do, there are several different possible endings, but finally everyone finds out how they did, and what secrets everyone else was concealing.
