Foul Play: Mystery at Awkward Manor The Armchair Travel Company 1995

This is a non-violent, CD-ROM based murder mystery game for 1-6 players (ages 7 and up), set in a magnificent 14 room English mansion in the 1950's. Six guests have been invited to visit Sir John Stiffning for dinner this evening. He thinks they're friends, but he'll be murdered by one of them before dinner tonight. It has over 5,000 photos, 65 movies, and 2,000 sound bites. A murder mystery environment includes 39 fully-interactive panoramas and over 2,000 possible clue locations with over 4,000 possible solutions. In this game, each player chooses to take the role of one of Sir John's guests. Each player then explores the mansion in turn, searching for clues, and racing against the other players until the mystery is solved. Game turn lengths may be either 1.5, 2.5 or 3.5 minutes each, which allows younger, less experienced players to have longer turns than parents or older players. Extensive help screens are also available within the game, containing information and hints on searching for clues, deductive reasoning, interviewing suspects, how to win, and more. There are ten game levels available, with levels 1 - 3 containing built-in help and tutorials, and taking 15 - 20 minutes to solve. Level 10 games usually take an hour or more to solve. With 4,700 possible solutions, every game you play is new and exciting! Players take on the identities and personas of Baron Awkward's six guests: Mrs. Thatcham, Miss Sang Lo, Mrs. Drabble, Major Gallop, Dr. Quandry and Senator Bluster. The characters arrive at 7:40 for an 8:00 PM dinner. Unfortunately, as they wander around the mansion, the host is murdered. It is obvious one of the characters is the perpetrator – but who, when and with what murder weapon is the mystery that needs solving.
