Description
 
Jack The Ripper, Al Capone, Alcatraz, Jekyll and Hyde, The Rue Morgue...solve the mysteries in these rummy varients fit for the whole family!

Mystery Rummy Package Includes:
--Mystery Rummy Case #1: Jack the Ripper
Jack the Ripper attaches an interesting theme to the traditional Rummy framework. Playing Victims, Suspects, Scenes, and Evidence-meld, players try to build a case against various suspects for the famous Jack the Ripper serial murders. Whichever suit has the most cards played in it when a player goes out is the guilty party. However, if all the Victim cards come out before the end of the game, the Ripper might escape giving the player who produced the card a significant point allowance.

--Mystery Rummy Case #2: Murders in the Rue Morgue
Murders in the Rue Morgue lets players investigate the murder from the Edgar Allan Poe story. The basic mechanics (evidence card melds, gavel cards, etc.) are similar to the first Mystery Rummy game, but this one adds a hidden "kitty" in which players secretly place cards throughout the hand. The first player to go out (before the draw deck is exhausted) wins the kitty in addition to their regular melds. This is an excellent partnership game with four players.

--Mystery Rummy Case #3: Jekyll and Hyde
Jekyll & Hyde provides a great twist with multiple suits of 5 cards each with the suits designated J for Jekyll, H for Hyde, or J/H for suis that count as both Jekyll and Hyde. The unique mechanism in this version is that there is a two-sided card (the "identity card") on the table next to the draw deck, which has Jekyll on One side, and Hyde on the other. You can change the identity by playing a "potion" card that lets you flip the identity card and draw 2 cards from the deck. This is important, because you can only play melds whose suit matches the identity that is currently showing and it also makes for a tense endgame as scoring is also affected.

--Mystery Rummy Case #4: Al Capone and the Chicago Underworld
Al Capone and the Chicago Underworld incorporates some elements of Canasta to the Mystery Rummy series with players scoring various bonuses for collecting complete sets. Sets have varying numbers of cards in them, from Mike Heitler with four cards up to Al Capone with eight. The four types of gavel card make cards accessible everywhere: "Agent Meeting" searches other players' hands, "Eliot Ness" searches the deck, "search Warrant" looks in the discard pile, and "Raid" allows you to take an opponent's already melded cards, provided that you have at least three melded. All these mechanisms help you complete your sets, but also put you on guard against your opponent doing the same.

--Mystery Rummy Case #5: Escape from Alcatraz
Escape from Alcatraz is an exciting Mystery Rummy card game by Mike Fitzgerald and Andrew Korson. Alcatraz Island is home to one of the most formidable federal prisons ever conceived. Though many men have tried, no one has ever successfully escaped from “the rock”. In this Mystery Rummy card game based on real prisoners and actual events, it is your job to foil escape attempts by gathering information on plans and capturing the ringleaders.
