Welcome to Mystery Game Central

Posted February 15, 2007 @ 6:02 pm - Filed under: Site News

As this is the very first post on the Mystery Game News blog, this is probably a good time to talk a little bit about what this site is about, and what I hope to accomplish with this site.

My name is Randy, and while I can’t claim, by any means, to be an expert on the topic, I am someone who has enjoyed mystery games (and mystery literature) for many years. In the past, as I’ve searched for information on various games, I’ve been frustrated that there was no single site I could go to that provided a comprehensive resource for these types of games.

Sure, there were publisher sites that covered the games from a particular company, and plenty of sites about mystery books, and even a few sites that focused on a small subset of games (usually mystery party games).

But I didn’t find a single site that covered the whole universe of mystery games – board games, party games, games you can play from your computer, jigsaw puzzles – so I decided that one site that covered everything related to mystery games would be a useful resource.

That’s what Mystery Game Central aims to be – the world’s most comprehensive resource for mystery game enthusiasts.

Time will tell whether or not this site lives up to that goal. Right now, I feel like I’ve made a good start. There’s work yet to do, but I think it’s heading in the right direction. Wish me luck.

If you have any opinions on where this site should head, or suggestions on what material it should cover, please let me know.

  1. I’m looking to have a Lifesize Clue party for some teenagers and while I’ve done this one other time, I just made up everything on my own. I’ve tried to find directions online, but haven’t ever had any luck. Do you have any suggestions?

  2. I’m not aware of any Clue-themed parties, but Host-Party and Merri Mysteries have a good selection of mystery party games for teens – have you browsed the games from those companies?

  3. I love your site. I’ve been looking for a mystery collection like this since the internet began. I would be willing to help you anyway I can.
    If you have seen the games Casebook Episodes 1, 2 and 3,
    they are a real step forward in quality gaming. They are not free. The prequel and episode 1 were free when they first come out, but now they are packaged with 3 episodes
    together for a price.

    I’m having a tech problem with CDX I hope you can help me with. I have a user name, but when I enter it the screen freezes. It worked fine the first few times. Thanks
