Why is AWKWARD GUESTS: The Walton Case different?
Each card in AWKWARD GUESTS: The Walton Case contains a piece of information that could help you solve Mr. Walton’s murder. These are statements from the suspects, alibis, police reports, forensic findings and much more.
The game setup is what makes AWKWARD GUESTS: The Walton Case unlike any other game. Each game uses a different predefined set of cards from the box. Therefore, none of the players have access to the case details before the game begins.
Everyone is an investigator! No need for a moderator!
Because of this setup method, every single card of the generated game deck provides information that is coherent with each other.
The information contained in each predefined game deck accounts for one unique mystery with one unique solution.
For example: the setup ensures that all cards regarding an innocent suspect dismiss all his/her motives for killing Mr. Walton.
This setup system created by Megacorpin Games is the Brilliant Deck System.
Consequently, to discover the murderer, their motive and the crime weapon, crossing out options and making a guess is not enough. You will have to draw conclusions based on the information provided by the cards received throughout the game.
Another example: you may determine a suspect’s innocence once the police has dismissed all his/her motives, once you deduce that they couldn’t reach the crime scene and/or weapon…i>
Our Brilliant Deck System has another main feature: it provides the game with infinite replayability. AWKWARD GUESTS: The Walton Case offers a possible total of 3,600 different murder case solutions, each of which may be reached through thousands of different card combinations; This means that millions of different game decks can be generated.
