A Narrative Tabletop Game of Murder and Justice.

Somebody has been murdered! The murderer, motivated by passion, envy, or greed, is sure they will get away with it. A detective is on the case, and quickly sees the truth of the matter. Both of them know that the murderer did it; the question is how to prove it.

One More Thing is a two-player narrative tabletop game that tells compelling stories of criminals bought to justice, in the finest tradition of TV detective dramas from the 1970s to today.

Your story begins with the murder, and continues as a back-and-forth drama playing out in the view of an imaginary television audience. 

The Murderer never gets away with it, but they can control how the audience sees them in the end. As you play you track the audience's reaction to the Murderer on the Audience Perception board. Do they view the murder as the act of a desperate person, or as a cold-blooded crime? You can play towards a particualar outcome, or let this perception follow the events of your story as they unfold, it works great either way!

The Detective knows that the Murderer is guilty, but needs to build a case. They uncover Clues, interview witnesses, decide which Clues are the most important ones, and most importantly confront the Murder with what they've learned in order to shake their confidence and get them to slip up as they try to cover up what they've done.

This is a two-player game, but it can be played in teams as well. It takes between one and two hours to play, depending on whether you choose to play in:

  • Writers Room Mode, in which you create everything yourselves: the Murderer, their victim, what drives the murder, the Detective and their quirks, and all of the Clues involved. This mode is more of a freeform role-playing experience.

  • On Assignment Mode, in which you choose one of the included Cases and get right into the game! Each Case gives you all of the details on the Murderer, Detective and the murder itself, as well as a predetermined set of Clues. This mode is more structured and supports learning this kind of game for those who haven't played one before. It's also good for shorter games!

One More Thing includes 5 Cases for On Assignment Mode:

  • Fatal Countdown: 1962, Cape Canaveral. A diplomat murders her identical twin sister and stages it to look like a botched assassination attempt!

  • Death of the Heart: 1974, Los Angeles. A celebrity surgeon accidentally murders his wife with an experimental treatment, and frames his former mentor for it!

  • Eagle's Last Ride: 1986, Malibu. An action movie star murders his costar after their affair sours, and tries to make it look like an accidental overdose!

  • The Past Never Dies: 1997, Groton, Connecticut. A retired general faces the revelation of war crimes from his past, and silences his accuser with a shovel and an open grave!

  • Secrets & Sixguns: 1859, Gila City, New Mexico Territory. A man is dead, and either the outlaw or the marshal did it. What happened? This case is played with the Amnesiac Whodunit rules twist

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
