Mystery of the Abbey is a whodunit game with a twist. A monk has been murdered in a medieval French Abbey.

Start off with a foundation of Clue and mix heavily with Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose and the "Brother Cadfael" mysteries.

Players maneuver their way through the Abbey examining clues and questioning each other to find out who is the culprit. A masterful game of deduction!
