Suspects: Claire Harper Takes the Stage


Playing together the role of the detective Claire Harper, read Clue cards to make deductions and unravel three intriguing mysteries!

Born in 1923, Claire Harper is an avid reader of Agatha Christie, a world traveller, and more British than 5 o’clock tea. She followed in her father’s footsteps and graduated from Oxford with the key to unlocking her dreams: a degree in criminal law. There’s no mystery that is too twisted for her brain.

In a Suspects mystery, you read the Clue cards to work your way through the investigation, discuss the case amongst yourselves, make deductions, and come to conclusions. Clue cards allow you to question characters, look through locations and examine items. Your goal is to score as many points as possible when you answer the questions in the questionnaire. The “faster” you answer (by drawing and reading as few Clue cards as possible), the more points you score. The investigation ends when there are no more Clue cards left to be drawn. Once you have come to an agreement on the answers to the questions, you may read the solution, and to assess your investigating skills objectively to tally up your points.
