The Blue Toad Murder Files wiki last edited by bobafettjm on 06/29/13 12:54PM View full history

Overview

The game is for 1-4 players and leans towards TV murder mysteries with "witnesses, alibis and motives" rather than being a logic puzzle like Cluedo. When playing the game solo, the player can pick from any one of the four members of the Blue Toad Detective Agency.

The gameplay comes from moving around the town of Little Riddle and solving crimes related to the plot, while investigating suspects, in order to try and solve the mystery of the episode. After each event within the episode, the player is questioned by the Chief Inspector on events so far to see if the player is keeping up.

At the end of the episode, the player is asked to select which character they think is the culprit, based on the clues they discovered throughout the episode.
