Ever since I played Ticket to Ride for the first time I have been a big fan of Days of Wonder and the games they publish. They set the standard in component quality, artwork, and just plain fun games. They have just recently announced their newest game called Mystery Express. It's a whodunit on rails. Here's some flavor text from the DOW website about the game:
Seeking a well-deserved break from your latest misadventures, you decide to splurge, treating yourself to the extravagant luxury of the most talked about train of our time - the legendary Orient Express. Most unexpectedly, and rather unfortunately, the holiday turns out to be short-lived. The train has barely left Paris when word spreads that someone has just been murdered, and in the most hideous manner...
Mystery Express is a deduction game where you are trying to figure out the who, what, when, where and why before your journey ends. It kind of looks like a game in the same vein as Clue. After checking out the site this one's definitely on my radar and it will be one I pick up as soon as it comes out. Only time will tell if it's another Days of Wonder classic, but I'm excited to find out. Thanks for reading and happy gaming!
