I am terribly late with this post as I received this in early July and wasn’t able to put out a blog post before my computer broke. :/  But I just wanted to share this with you as it’s something a little different and something I’m sure many of you will enjoy.  Today’s haul isn’t a book but a card game.  Now I’ve enjoyed playing games, board and card, ever since I can remember and this is an interesting and brilliant card game from the people at After Dark Murder Mystery Events, which by the way sound so fun!  A big thank you to Zooloo’s Book tours who is running a blog tour for this card game, a tour where you can see the opinions of many bloggers throughout early August.  But for now let’s check out this interesting game!…

Foul Play: Once Upon A Crime – Carabosse the Bad Fairy is dead, and her Big Book of Villainy has been stolen…
In a shocking revelation, the magic mirror has revealed that all the suspects are goodies, but who had a motive to go bad? You’ll need to swap, steal and search for the evidence in order to scupper the other detectives and sleuth your way to victory!
Let’s just hope your case doesn’t go cold before revealing your solution (dramatically, of course) and catching the culprit! Case closed!
There’s more than one way to catch a killer though.  So what’s it gonna be? Good Cop or Bad Cop? If you’re playing Good Cop you’re chasing down a specific killer, whereas Bad Cop you’ll have to successfully frame any one of the eight suspects in order to win. Each way to play comes with its own set of rules and tactics, but will you use fair play or foul play?
With these two game modes and every playthrough different, this little game of murder packs quite the mystery, just as fun and confounding as the last.


Doesn’t this sound so exciting? 🙂  I’ve already had a play at this game and will share my thoughts about it on the 9th August so I hope you’ll look out for that because I’ll have more pictures and will tell you just how fun this is, especially bad cop mode! 😀

In the meantime here’s a sneak peak at all of the fairytale characters that are suspects…
