When I first met Carinn, my Belovedest, her then-eight-year-old daughter, Samantha, expressed a very early interest in participating in the RPGs we played frequently in the home with others. We instructed Sammi that she would only be allowed to join in if she was willing to delve into the necessary math involved. Up to that point, Carinn had experience great difficulty getting her daughter to embrace math in any way, and the young girl struggled mightily.

Today, my teenage daughter Sammi is a top math student, also deeply enmeshed in S.T.E.M. programs with a keen interest in forensic science currently. All thanks to her desire to game with us, and her deep enjoyment of it once she got involved. I can think of no greater testimony to the power of getting the kids in your life to join you at the game table than that. I am very, very proud of the part I played in helping to create and launch Teach Your Kids to Game Week.

Let’s round this week out by pointing you to the huge sale on many things sci-fi at DriveThruRPG. This particular weekend sees extra savings for Eclipse Phase and Traveler: The New Era. There’s a lot more, though, so click the banner and explore the depths of space at a deep discount!

(I… I actually typed that, didn’t I?)

Have you ever wanted to play in a game that features a room full of suspects and a Great Detective saying “Before this night is over, I will reveal how one of you committed the murder”? Wicked Lies and Alibis one looks like a fantastic approach to this special genre of detective fiction, one that’s a great deal of fun for the players and GM alike. It’s also on deep-discount as DriveThruRPG’s “Deal of the Day,” so you need to grab it quick.

Players generate characters at the table from a selection of cards, developing a cast of complex characters who all have a motive to kill the victim. They then play through several establishing scenes in the lead-up to a murder. The remainder of the game is played as a series of structured flashback rounds where each player, in turn, assumes a degree of narrative control to frame a flashback which incriminates another character.

The Game Master has a dual role, both as facilitator of scenes, and as the Great Detective, a Non-Player Character summoned to solve the murder, who summarises the evidence revealed by the characters, and reveal the motives of the characters one-by-one before finally disclosing the identity of the murderer.

This game allows you to recreate murder mystery stories in the finest tradition of the golden-age of detective fiction.  It’s also a perfect low-prep, one-shot, filler for that session where you are missing a key player, or when you want to try something different between regular games.
