A Note for Murder: A Lightweight Card Game of Holmesian Deduction

Live today on Kickstarter is Puzzling Pixels' newest creation: A Note for Murder. This game is a simple, lightweight card game that anyone can pick up in a few minutes. It's for 2-4 players, and the game typically lasts about 15-20 minutes.

In the game, you are Sherlock Holmes, helping Scotland Yard decrypt a mysterious note that gives clues to a murder that is about to happen. You will use cards that depict a location, a weapon, and a murder suspect. Each player has a "secret" card that only the other players can see. You will play cards out of your hand and the player to your left will give you clues as to whether the cards you play are related to your secret card. Once you've gathered enough clues, you'll have to stop the murder by guessing the location, weapon, and murderer.
