In the quiet village of Ravenswood Bluff a demon walks amongst you, killing by night and disguised in human form by day.

Will the good townsfolk put the puzzle together in time to execute the true demon, or will evil overrun this once peaceful village?

Blood on the Clocktower is a tense and engaging social bluffing experience for those who delight in deduction and deception. Meet new people, or lie to your closest friends. Kill with grace, and die with dignity. This is pay-what-you-want event (£3 minimum donation) designed to be accessible to anyone new to social deduction games, including those who may typically find participation difficult due to disability, anxiety etc.

A storyteller will be there to teach the rules as you play and answer any questions at any time, so if you’ve always considered yourself somewhat of a Sherlock, now’s your chance to prove it.

"Finally, a social deduction game for everyone, including the people who don't like social deduction games." Meeple Mountain
