Description:

Welcome to the intriguing world of Mystery Rummy games created by Mike Fitzgerald. Mystery Rummy is a unique game concept that combines the intrigue of a classic mystery with a strategic card game based on the traditional elements of Rummy.

For three months in 1888 a killer known as Jack the Ripper terrorized the district of Whitechapel in East London, England. Scotland Yard was not able to solve the case, and to this day the identity of Jack the Ripper is still a mystery.

Can you succeed where Scotland Yard failed? Each hand of Mystery Rummy will reveal one of six suspects to be Jack the Ripper-or the Ripper will escape! Who will it be: Montague Druitt, Prince Eddy, Sir Gull, Dr. Pedachenko, George Chapman, or Jill the Ripper?

This game attaches an interesting theme to a fairly standard Rummy framework. Playing Victims, Suspects, Scenes, and Evidence-melds, players try to build a case against various suspects for the famous Jack the Ripper serial murders.

Whichever suit has the most cards played in it when a player goes out is the guilty party, but if all the Victim cards come out before the end of the game, the Ripper might escape, giving the player who produced that card a significant point allowance.
