Let’s Unpack This # 61: Critical Role Clue

Share This Post

“It’s time for the Harvest Close Festival in the city of Zadash, but a vengeful threat targeting one of the Mighty Nein is an unexpected wrench in the celebration! Take part in a side quest of epic proportions created in partnership with Critical Role with this role-playing twist on The Classic Mystery Game!”

Yes we’re back to themed classics this week with a new version of the classic Clue themed around Critical Role’s Mighty Nein from Campaign Two. Unlike other licensed games, this one seems to do quite a bit to change things up for Critters and non-critters alike.
