Re: Board games anyone?

Played a new game a few times in the last week: Mysterium . All players but one are psychics trying to solve a murder case. The ghost of the victim is played by the last player. They provide visions to the psychics in order to hint at the who, what and where of their own murder. Problem is, the vis...

I saw you recommend that on FB, it sounds fascinating. How many players is it? I think 3-5 is the recommendation. It's no GM, so 3-5 people total. That sounds intriguing.
