Mysterium, by Libellud, is a game of deduction where a group of players work as a team to decipher the true meanings of cryptic ‘visions’ sent from a ghost. It is highly thematic with gorgeous over produced in-game components allowing players to be inventive and interact with lots of table discussion.


In Mysterium, players take on the roles of gifted mediums with the ability to communicate with the undead. One player becomes the ghost whose spirit is doomed to forever haunt the mansion after becoming the victim of a hideous crime. They attempt to reveal to the players the truth of what actually happened; who murdered them, how they did it and where it took place. Each medium is secretly gifted a selection of three potential combinations, noted behind the ghost players cardboard screen. The mediums are working towards their own goal independent of each other, however they are still considered as working as one team. All players win or lose as a group.


The twist is that the ghost is unable to communicate in way other than give the other players a selection of highly stylistic dreamlike images on tarot cards. These are dealt to each individual player, once a round, to help them correctly identify their targets. Each card is a beautiful piece of surreal artwork, which can be read in many ways. It is up to the mediums to try to interpret the ghosts’ subtle nudges. The ghost can only present selected images from their hand of cards, which can limit what they want to say immeasurably, often to comic effect.


Cards that show the potential suspects, weapon and location are placed on the table across three levels. Each round a medium will place one of their markers on a card confirming their choice. Once a player correctly guesses part of their combination they can progress to the next. Other players can also gain bonus points for agreeing or disagreeing with their fellow mediums over choices made.


Mysterium continues over 7 rounds and if the mediums each manage to gather their personal combination and progress through the 3 separate levels then the final round takes place. All players’ options are revealed on the table and at this point there is one more round of visions dealt to the mediums, as they have to work out whose combination was actually the true story of what happened. If they correctly guess then the ghost can rest peacefully and everyone wins.
