Take A Night Out with Mysterium Park

Mysterium Park Box Cover Art

I am a huge fan of games like Mysterium and Obscurio. These cooperative games of deduction by use of art provide great collaboration at the table as you try to solve for the clues that are being given to you. There’s something about the perplexed look of players as you give them cards that they don’t understand the meaning you are trying to convey or that got it moments when they realize the message.

Mysterium Park is the latest in what is an ever growing genre of these style games. In this outing, Libellud has tried to streamline the game experience for a faster and smoother game. What I find is a very successful, simplified version of the original Mysterium that fits in a smaller box and price point.

  • Players: 2-6
  • Playtime (with Setup): We find it between 30 and 90 minutes
  • Publisher: Libellud
  • Designer: Xavier Collette and M81 Studio

A Weekend of Gaming

I really miss gaming at the table with groups of my friends. COVID-19 has really impacted how many of us play games on the table top. While some of us have moved to online gaming venues, others have started more solo gaming, and others accept the risks and gather as they always have. I don’t know if there is a right answer, but I am fortunate that my wife Suzanne loves playing games. We spent our Halloween weekend of 2020 playing several board games while the kids trick or treated.
