Your brain better be working if you want to figure out that it was Professor Plum in the library with the lead pipe first.

This popular murder-mystery board game involves ruling out possibilities to come to the right conclusion. Your goal is to move around the game board to figure out which of the game’s suspects is the murderer, as well as which weapon they used and in what room.

Players must use critical thinking and problem solving to figure out whodunit. The best part? You’ll probably get so caught up in the mystery that you won’t even notice you’re learning.
