The next game I will feature on the site will be a how to play of Mysterium. If you are a fan of mysteries and deduction games like Clue you will certainly love Mysterium. This game was on my “Games To Start Your Collection” list and I recommend picking it up if you get the chance.
Libellud (the company that produces Mysterium) just announced that in 2016 there will be an expansion for the game called Mysterium: Hidden Signs. The press release states that there will be new Suspect, Item, and Place cards to investigate. This will provide more variability for the game which has me very excited as this is one of the weak points of the game in my opinion; the chance for repetitive signs and visions after many plays. I haven’t seen word yet on if new vision cards will be introduced but this would be very nice to see. Many of the vision cards I have cycled through and seen multiple times. This means that if you play with the same group over and over again, they will see a certain vision card from you and know instantly who you are indicating or what etc. Below is a picture of the box and a description of the game from the publisher:
Description from the publisher:
They thought the secret of Warwick mansion had been solved and the spirit had found peace, but now new signs have emerged that were previously hidden. New suspects, places, and objects that do not fit into the picture — and the presence of the ghost is strong once again.
In Mysterium: Hidden Signs, the spiritualists must return to the old mansion and investigate these disturbing visions. Will they understand all the instructions this time and give the ghost its final rest?
I will post a feature and how to play video of Mysterium this week. Until then I’ll see you at the table!
