Days of Wonder recently announced that they will be revisiting their inaugural big-box board game, Mystery of the Abbey. An award-winning whodunit game, full of intrigue, mystery and monks, very loosely based on the acclaimed novel The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco. It's been out of print for a few years now, but nostalgic gamers can expect to find it on the shelves of their favorite game stores in late August. You can see Days of Wonder's official press release here. I've always been intrigued by the mixing of faith and deduction; throw gaming into the mix and you've got the recipe for a great evening. The only thing missing is Brother Cadfael on the tele!
Have fond memories of the game? We'd love to hear your stories! Leave 'em in the comments below!
