Mysteries, Investigations Abound in Murders at Karlov Manor
Magic: The Gathering Returns to Ravnica, Features Overarching Puzzle Experience
Magic: The Gathering will challenge players to solve a murder mystery scenario with the upcoming Murders at Karlov Manor set. The experience will feature new characters and a few fan favorites who will scour the manor in search of a killer – all against the backdrop of fan-favorite Ravnica.
In this First Look at the new set, which comes out on Feb. 9, Alquist Proft, Ravnica’s greatest detective, and others will be trying to figure out who is a cold-blooded murderer in a classic case of whodunit. Through play, Magic players will weave their way through the story, deciphering puzzles, and solving the mystery.
Thirteen “Mystery Files” puzzles are built into the set, drawing fans deeper into the detective feel of the game. Beginning at prerelease on Feb. 2, a new puzzle will open each day on a webpage, all leading toward the final solution.
Story spotlight cards will help players navigate through Karlov Manor as they put together the clues. There will be serialized Ravnica City cards featuring guild leaders, borderless lands, a Dossier Showcase art treatment and an invisible ink treatment as well.
If this darker, detective-style look of Ravnica sounds familiar, you might be acquainted with a certain board game. We’ll give you a Clue.
Ravnica: Clue Edition, available on Feb. 23, will feature Clue-themed shock lands, brand new cards featuring a person, place, or object, and a whodunit gameplay twist that will excite players. Play Magic, look for clues into the death of Guildmage Boddy, and crack the case or eliminate your rival detectives!
