An Exquisite Crime



Exquisite Crime is designed for 2-4 players to enjoy in a single 2-3 hour session, that by the time the game is finished - will have several keepsakes showcasing your story.

Since Exquisite Crime deals with mature themes such as murder, crime, and violence, we have provided calibration tools to provide safe and consensual play. We also want to remind our readers and players that not all games may be a good fit for everyone. Your time is important, so put yourself first! We have included an “X” and “O” card in the game, to assist players who may want an ‘out’ button should they come across any content they may be uncomfortable with.


Exquisite Crime asks players to harness their latent psychic abilities in order to solve mysteries ranging from the quirky to the surreal to the downright monstrous. Only those who are tapped into the paranormal can perceive the messages from beyond the veil. Will the players be able to translate those visions into sketches that will lead to the capture of the guilty party?

Every player contributes visually and narratively to this paranormal crime story as it unfolds, drawing sketches of the Victim, the Scene of the Crime, the Suspects, and the Witnesses. While investigating questions covering elements like: Means, Motive, and Opportunity— all the essential elements of any good crime story!


In this collaborative drawing and storytelling game, you take on the roles of a team of psychics who have been called upon to investigate crimes in a world where surreal phenomena happen right before your eyes - if you possess the abilities to see the so-called Overlap, that liminal space where things from beyond the veil cross over and blend in with our reality. 

Follow story prompts and draw or write what your psychic powers reveal to you in order to unfold each part of the mystery. You must work with your colleagues in the secretive Griffinfly Society, using your paranormal abilities to reveal the truth hidden beneath the lies the world presents to all but the most psychically attuned. Players collaborate to build the world they’re playing in using prompts, populating it with both the victims and the suspects to create a surreal crime story.

Currently in the core set, we have six (6) unique scenarios which have pre-set options for play. Once you've completed these, the formula to explore your own worlds and settings become infinite!


Inspired by fuji planchette writing, spirit art (specifically auragraphs), Zener cards and the work of Karl Zener, Harold Sharp and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, An Exquisite Crime takes our research into the psychic arts and fictionalizes it, presenting players an oddly comforting drawing and storytelling experience.

Exquisite Crime is equal parts paranormal whodunnit RPG and goofy group doodling - Dicebreaker

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.
