Mystery of the Abbey

Mystery of the Abbey

Game Information

Year Published
Days of Wonder

The peaceful Templars' Abbey is a rare haven of tranquility for road weary travelers. And so you found it when you arrived late last night. That serenity was shattered this morning with the discovery of the lifeless body of Brother Adelmo at the foot of the Monastery's cliffs. 

Did the usually nimble-footed Brother slip to his death? Or did someone help him in his fall?

Mystery of the Abbey is a new kind of "whodunit" game of deduction and intuition, set in a medieval abbey. Players compete and collaborate to solve the mystery by moving through the Abbey's beautifully rendered board and questioning their brethren.

Mystery of the Abbey: One of MY Personal Favorite

And while it may be one of my favorite games, I can't say it is the deserving of the highest score on F:AT. The game is a little too chaotic and the ability to ask questions to find your way to victory is just a little too weak. That can be fixed with a house variant or two... but why should I have to get involved in game design? Ya know? Even so, the game is fun to play, it creates some great social moments and the theme is chain off fantastic! I would like to see a little less luck involved in the game. However, it seems very popular among the people who I played it with and the it just sets everybody into that perfect "mystery mood..." Great artwork and components.
