THE GAME OF SUSPICION AND BETRAYAL!
In society, whenever a crime has been committed, no matter how small, there is always evidence left behind.
The evidence usually points to certain suspects. In this game, the players are all “simply suspects.” What is unusual is that the suspects each have the opportunity to tamper with the evidence so that it points to other suspects. If the evidence points to you when you meet the Grand Jury, you are eliminated. Only one suspect will escape the Grand Jury and win the game.
