Snow Business

Snow Business

Each winter, the Harrisons and the Perrys ski in the French Alps and always rent the Chalet Flaubert. They hire the whole chalet and bring both families and friends. The holidays are usually an opportunity to relax and unwind away from the pressures of normal life, but this year has been different. Jacqui and Mariella have been arguing, Lucy has sprained her wrist, snow has cut the chalet off - and tonight, real tragedy has struck. A few minutes ago, John Morgan was found dead at the foot of the attic steps, his neck broken at an unfortunate angle. Nobody can leave the chalet; and there is no phone or radio in here...

Did John fall or was he pushed? Is there a murderer in Chalet Flaubert? You will be in the middle of the action and it will be up to you to wheel and deal with the other guests. Can you achieve your goals, keep your secrets hidden and survive Snow Business? It's up to you.

In Snow Business you will discover the following:

  • What happened to the missing wallet?
  • Who still carries a torch for an old flame?
  • Is an ungrateful child really sharper than a serpent's tooth?
  • What are the Swiss good at, apart from chocolate and cuckoo clocks?
  • ... and, of course, who killed John Morgan?

Additional Information

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

Snow Business 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, Snow Business 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 Chalet Host, and welcomed to the chalet. They then receive their detailed backgrounds - including dark secrets, goals and items. The fun then begins as they form alliances, blackmail each other, steal items and maybe even resort to murder! 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.

This game lasts for about four hours and is suited to an evening. It is often played over a meal -- a finger buffet if possible to allow guests to circulate and talk in private.

This murder mystery game comes with a Cast Iron Guarantee: If you're not completely satisfied with the game, simply request a refund from Freeform Games within 30 days.
