A murder has been committed in the Victorian Steampunk city of St. Sebastian and you have made the short list of Police suspects. The only way to retain your freedom is to prove that one of the others on the list is, in fact, the murderous culprit.
Players take turns playing accusation cards against each other and weaving a story of foul deeds based on story-cues on the cards. Play and alibi card and tell your story of innocence to remove an accusation. Get stuck with accusations for method, motive, and opportunity and you'll have to confess your crime by telling your story of evil acts.
