THIS GAME IS MEANT TO BE PLAYED WITH FRIENDS IN PERSON. IF YOU ARE ALONE YOU CANNOT PLAY!
Dark Stories is an easy to play and fun game but some of the stories are quite difficult. All the stories are fictional. To solve them, the players will need to prove their skills as detectives.
HOW TO PLAY
Dark Stories must be played in group. A person -chosen as narrator- picks a mystery and reads its description aloud.
Then he/she reads its solution without telling the other people. The rest of the players then have to make questions in order to solve the mystery.
The narrator can only answer the questions using “Yes”, “No” or “It is not relevant”. The only possible solution is the one given at the back of each mystery card. If the answer is still not clear enough, the players must follow the narrator’s interpretation of the mystery.
A typical fragment of a gameplay could be:
Player1: “Did he die because of the shot?”
Player2: “Was he poisoned?”
Player3: “Did he have children?”
Narrator: “It’s not relevant”
Player1: “Are there other people in the story?”
Player2: “Did he commit suicide?”
END OF THE GAME
When the narrator considers that the story has been solved enough, the narrator can conclude the game and read the whole solution.
It is up to the narrator to give some clues if the story is in a deadlock.
