    A Murder Most Fowl is a peculiar card game about crypto communication and people reading.

    In A Murder Most Fowl, 2 or 3 teams of 2-players each (which means the game is played by either 4 or 6 players) compete against each other to solve the murder of Colonel Robin Poor, who is a bird of international importance.

    3 investigation agencies will be racing each other to solve the murder, or to steal the solution from other agencies. Play either as Charlotte Holmes and Vet Watson from Dogland Yard, Agent Murder and Agent Scurry from Federal Beavers of Investigation (FBI, for short) or Inspector Purrouseau and Queen Cat'O from Brigade Félinationale de la Sécurité.

    Before a game session, the teams meet in secret and devise strategies for crypto communication. The teams can use body language, singing, humming, tell obscure stories, remind each other of past memories, speak unintelligibly, in numbers or form sentences that make no sense at all to the other teams –but hopefully passes information amongst themselves.

    To call a murder, the teams will need crypto-communication, since callling a murder involves combining a murder scenario with a suspect, a location and a weapon as a team. However the other team(s) must be unaware of your selections since the solution could very well be stolen from you.

    The game is loosely inspired by the English nursery rhyme "Who Killed Cock Robin" – especially Henry Louis Stephens’ 1865 book version which is named; "Death and Burial of Poor Cock Robin".
