Post Mortem LA: Lights, Camera, Murder!

Case Synopsis

“Hollywood is a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.” — Marilyn Monroe 

Movie star Clara Rose and her estranged husband are discovered shot to death on the dusty backlot of Orpheum Pictures. Classic murder-suicide? Hollywood rivalries that became too real? Mob debts unpaid? Or perhaps something far more sinister…

Due to a profound corruption scandal, the District Attorney has given the Global Detective Agency temporary jurisdiction and oversight of the LAPD. And so -- in need of more gumshoes on the ground -- they are looking to recruit a large number of probationary cautionary auxiliary investigators. That would be you.

And now it is up to you to find the truth. 

The package sent to you will contain all the resources you need to carve your path around LA, interrogate suspects, and solve the murder. But please remember: Although an exciting opportunity, discretion is a must. The walls have ears.

And as we say at the GDA: Our eyes never sleep.

Read the frequently asked questions.

Fun but a little confusing

I liked the characters and the story and got a lot of information out of it, but the actual solution is really difficult to come up with from it.

Light, Camera, Murder - Wow

We took this on a recent cruise for some down time during “at sea” days for the three of us. This was our first mystery game and weren’t sure what to expect. But we were soon hooked. We would play for an hour or two then break off and pick it up at the next opportunity. We found ourselves discussing it when we weren’t playing trying to figure out where to go next, how to find another clue, who done it and so forth. By the end of the cruise we had solved it! What we really liked was the interview vignettes and the fantastic evidence bags. We would get so excited when we got to open another one! We also liked that sometimes you needed to circle back and review because things that didn’t seem important, later turned out to be. All in all very well done!

Fantastic family experience!

For our first Mysterious Package, I purchased Post Mortem 1 for my father for his birthday. It culminated in multiple family members and many hours spent sleuthing, questioning and solving! We were entranced! We will happily purchasing others in the future.

So fun!

My husband and I did this on a weekend away and it was such a fun game. Hard enough but not too difficult. Perfect fun.

First timers

It was our first time with the Mysterious Package Company and for us the logistics of the game itself and playing as a group were the initial challenges. We then decided the best was to read the pulp fiction novel individually and meet periodically to share our findings and open the evidence packs. It took a few sessions but we cracked it! Very fun and will repeat!!
