Description

This is a version of the well-known board game, in which you must solve a murder by discovering who the murderer was, in which room and with which weapon, by listing clues as other players are forced to reveal which cards they have, as proof that particular people/weapons/rooms were not involved.

This implementation includes a 3-D mansion game board, 3-D character models, and animations for the player/weapon murder combinations. Three levels of computer AI are available for solo games, along with modem/network play options.
