The award-winning murder mystery board game Mysterium has been released for the iOS platform. In this cooperative board game, one player takes on the role of the ghost of a murder victim who uses various types of cards to give clues to the other players (paranormal psychics) who will use those clues to ultimately solve the mystery of the murder.
The iOS digital version of the game features online multiplayer for up to 7 players and works cross-platform between the iOS, Android, and Steam versions. There is a solitaire and story mode as well.

At the recent Steve Jackson Games Open House, retailers were able to to demo the latest release from SJG that left them laughing hysterically and requesting preorders.
Simon Tofield’s popular YouTube series, “Simon’s Cat”, has achieved over 680 million views, and continues to entertain with its adorable art and charming humor about a fate white cat and his long-suffering owner.
Now, designers Randy Scheunemann and Sam Mitschke have brought us a new card game based on this beloved animated series. In this lighthearted romp, 3-6 players will “go around the table playing cards to escape Simon’s attention. Get caught and you get Blame. Get too much Blame and you get fed last. No one wants that.”
Simon’s Cat release date has yet to be announced. For more information on Steve Jackson Games and to keep an eye on this game’s news, visit the SJG website HERE.
