Vlog Ep. 268: Exploring Mystery House

Tonight's featured board game for this #BaduyPride Monday is the innovative deductive mystery game Mystery House: Adventures in a Box. This is a 1-5 player game that was created by Antonio Tinio and published by Cranio Creations. The central mechanic of this game is the box framework that allows the creation of a 3D maze based on the scenario you're playing. Thus players have something physical to literally explore in order to solve the puzzles and riddles of the game.

We only have the base game to discuss and with its two scenarios, it's a good representation of the potential game. But this first foray is a little shaky with a few kinks in the system, mainly around the app experience and how it doesn't fully enable richer storytelling and other silliness. But it's a good effort and maybe we'll get around to getting the other expansions in time.

While we chose today's topic, we're always open to suggestions! If you have ideas for future video discussions, feel free to fill out this Google Form and your idea may be featured as the focus for an episode!
