New Online Mystery Game

Post by CYOGN »

Hello fellow Clue fans-

Some of you may remember that we ran an online murder mystery last spring called The Murder at Spoopy Manor. Some of you played - and a few of you even guessed the correct solution!

Well, we have a sequel mystery that started today. It's free to play, and the prize is a copy of the Clue Liar's Edition (I know, I know - it's a controversial prize...but it's the most unique/current version on the market). This new online mystery is heavily inspired by Clue....we think you'll like it!

Hop over to www.richpantsmansion.com to view the first episode. You don't have to have played the first mystery in order to play this one, although you will recognize our detective :)

We will post new episodes daily or every other day over the next couple weeks, and then you'll have a chance to guess the killer. All correct guesses will go into a raffle for the prize.

Let us know any questions, and we hope you'll play!

Cool! I really enjoyed the first one - even if I didn't get the murder weapon right :lol: Fortunately I did solve who the murderer was.

So glad you enjoyed the last mystery! This new one, as you'll see, takes inspiration from the Clue board game, movie, kids books, and CDW comic series (really for that, just by leaning into the Scarlet-as-a-pop-star trope). Our writer loves Clue, and there are lots of easter eggs for Clue fans are sprinkled throughout!

Up through mid-week, we've been putting out videos daily. Then, contestants will have a chance to submit a question to ask a suspect (like the TV series). We'll then post responses to select questions, and people can then submit their final guess in hope of winning the prize.

Good luck!

....just gotta say that Judith (presumably Peacock from the kids books) is a riot. That's all.

We love the feedback and questions!!

Our last suspect testimonial will come out tomorrow (Tuesday, 6/22). Then, we will allow questions to be submitted via web form - not to be confused with emailing Rhoda for the police report - through Thursday, 6/24 afternoon.

We will release suspect replies to select questions on Friday or Saturday. Detectives will have until Tuesday afternoon, 6/29, to submit their final guess before we reveal the killer and winner that evening on a live stream (we host a weekly Tuesday gameshow at biggaygaymeshow.com - the reveal will first drop at the end of the show). We'll also post the solution and announce the winner on Weds 6/30 on our Instagram page.

Good luck, and feel free to ask more questions or comment here!

I've written down a possibility of what it could be on a piece of paper - How I'm slightly stuck on

I've sent in my question. For me, the murderer is between 2 people, and the scenarios I got in my mind, both have very strong motives, I've got evidence pointing to these two as well as decent conjectures but little things that are throwing me off back and forth between them. (I'm gonna look like a right donut if it's neither)

What fun! I’m so happy you’ve done this again! I got the previous case correct, but I donut know about this one. Right now I’ve got my eyes on two suspects in particular. I don’t think I asked a very good question unfortunately, but I’ll just have to cinnamon roll with it.

This warms our detective hearts! And the puns are amazing.

We're receiving some really interesting questions for our suspects - some with very unique angles - so this will be fun to unpack and address. There will be intriguing information revealed all the way up to the end! Donut worry gumshoes - you can solve this.

Is Abe the same as Boo and the mummy? Nice we finally get to see him!

I'm trying to figure out at what date the murder happened...

I wish we could ask other questions because I had this BIG one flash in my mind and I think it could be the key to solving the mystery

Keep the questions coming!

-Abe, Jemma, Boo, Ben (the Mummy) and Hazel (the Witch) are all indeed the same actor! We've passed along the comment to him :D
-Sorry we only allowed one question per detective. However, we got so many good questions that we did combine some to allow for pretty robust answers. They should come out tomorrow.

Again, the answer will be revealed on Tuesday evening during a live stream at http://www.biggaygaymeshow.com (free to play weekly, and hosted by Rhoda, Boo, and Zane), and then we'll post the solution to our Insta by Wednesday morning...along with announcing the winner of the prize!!

We've seen a lot of participation with this mystery, so there will definitely be a third one some day!

My guess sent, a little long-winded but I'm happy with it. Although now that I think about it, one thing I may have gotten wrong. But I think I'm close
