In Deception: Murder in Hong Kong, players must solve a grisly murder through collaborative deduction. One person plays the role of the killer, who carefully chooses what kind of evidence they leave at the scene of the crime. The killer tries to sabotage the investigation, while the forensic scientist attempts to reveal him or her to other players by indirectly analyzing the scene.
This game supports 4–12 players, making it a great group activity for board game nights. Deception's social gameplay keeps it short and exciting—one session lasts about 20 minutes. You'll use your wits to help lead your friends to the killer, or throw them off your trail with lies and deceit. Deception: Murder in Hong Kong usually goes for $39.99, but you can pick up a copy of this game in the Boing Boing Store for $10 off.
