“Based in Scotland in the 1920’s. Conrad MacDowell, the gifted astrologist and clairvoyant has inherited a family manor. As he sets foot in the property, he feels a supernatural presence. In a bid to free the stranded spirit Conrad, summons the best mediums of the day for an extra ordinary séance. The gathered assembly has limited time to contact the ghost and solve the mystery.”
Mysterium is a purely co-operative game for 2-7 players. One player takes the role of a helpful ghost who lives in a mysterious ancient manor. Other players are a group of psychics invited by the manor owner to solve the mystery of the manor and bring peace to its residents, as any person who stays in the castle sees strange dreams.
The ancient legend says the ghost is the soul of the manor's previous resident, who was unjustly executed for a crime he didn't commit, more than 100 years ago. Now he tries to use the mysterious signs to tell people the truth about what really happened then, so that justice would be established and he might rest in peace for ever.
