About this game

ATTENTION!

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.


EXAMPLE
A typical fragment of a gameplay could be:

Player1: "Did he die because of the shot?"
Narrator:"No"
Player2: "Was he poisoned?"
Narrator: "No"
Player3: "Did he have children?"
Narrator: "It's not relevant"
Player1: "Are there other people in the story?"
Narrator: "No"
Player2: "Did he commit suicide?"
Narrator: "Yes"
...


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.


WHEN TO PLAY
It is perfect for birthday parties, camps... and every situation in which you join several friends.


STORIES
This free App includes more than 200 stories and we will add new stories periodically.

Accidents, suicides, thefts... Will you be able to solve every mystery?

I grew up playing "Crack the Case" with friends and fell in love with it. Really opens up the world of board games to otherwise skeptics since there's no pieces and you can play casually or competitively. I'm always surprised how seemingly "smart" people struggle with this game because it punishes you for making assumptions and putting too many things together in your head. The players that really shine are the ones that need to ask for clarification of each detail and I love it! Thank you!

I overall liked the game, though it has it's flaws. Especially the questions, it is supposed to be a question-answer kind of game but it takes a lot of getting used to since most questions (stand-alone) are far-fetched and the players have to know which questions to ask, it is nearly necessary to provide hints. Though for a free game, it's way more than you can ask for, especially with free keys stuff. I think the game can be improved on by new questions submitted by the players.

Some solutions are flat out weird after I read into them. Like, too complicated. Ut apart from that, a very good game for turning on the brain wires and putting on thinking caps. Great for bigger company!

Thank you Nikola! We have tried to include stories of all types and difficulty levels so that everyone can enjoy some of them. That's why some of them are more far-fetched. In any case, we think all of them can be solved, specially since the narrator can give hints to the rest of the players. We hope you enjoy the game!
