Announcing: Kill Your Darlings – a booklikes murder mystery reading game

Reblogged from: Moonlight Reader



Ever since Tigus mentioned his old Murder Mystery Game,
I’ve been wracking my brains for a way to adapt it to a Booklikes Reading Game.

What this game is:
A fun-filled opportunity to solve a crime – by reading books!
A game that can be played either individually, or in teams!

What this game is not:

Game play will begin as close to March 1 as I can get the game ready.
Rules and game ephemera forthcoming!
