New Motive Cards Introduced in Mysterium: Secrets & Lies Expansion
The new expanded deck delivers more occult mystery.Asmodee Digital, leader in digital board game entertainment, today announced their latest update to haunting family favorite Mysterium, the cooperative deduction game that challenges players to interpret clues provided by a helpful ghost to solve the mystery of his murder.
One player takes on the role of a restless ghost, tasked with communicating the true culprit of the murder to the assembled psychics. The other players all play as psychics, receiving visions and interpreting them to the best of their abilities in order to narrow down the list of suspects. Yet time is in no one’s favor tonight—if the players take too long to discover the truth, the bridge between the worlds is closed, and the ghost must wait another year to reach its eternal rest!
In addition to expanding the deck with new weapons, items and locations, Mysterium: Secrets & Lies also provides a nuanced new game mechanic: story cards, which ask players to discern not only how the victim was killed, but why.
Secrets and Lies includes 18 new story cards, which players can swap out for murder weapon cards for a little extra challenge: in lieu of unearthing an object, they’ll be digging up grudges and agendas. The expansion also fleshes out Mysterium’s spectral forensics with six new suspects (including Count Warwick himself), six new locations, six new items, and 42 new vision cards. Find Mysterium: Secrets and Lies today on Steam, iOS and Android for €1.99.
