Murder of Crows invites you to be the first player to spell "murder" – but thankfully you don't have to use crow carcasses to do it. Instead you're spelling the word with letter cards from your hand. Each player starts with five cards in hand, and on a turn a player either (a) draws two cards or (b) draws one card and plays one card. In addition to the Wild Crow card, which can do just about anything, cards come in five letters, each with a special power that takes place when you play that card.
The 2nd Edition of Murder of Crows is an aesthetic upgrade to the original game. The cards are now tarot-sized, and Dungeoneer-creator Thomas Denmark’s atmospheric art has been given more space to shine. The packaging has been upgraded from a tuck box to a beautiful aluminum tin, as seen with Hounded and Lost in R’lyeh. Additionally this edition features a brand new two-player variant!
