Murder is afoot at the Gnome! Murder Mystery during the Magic at Karlov Manor Prereleases this weekend

Gather, Planeswalkers! A Mystery Unfurls at Gnome Games!

Dust off your sleuthing skills and sharpen your spellcasting focus, for Gnome Games invites you to an event unlike any other: Murder at the Gnome Games: a Magic: the Gathering Prerelease like no other, shrouded in the chilling mystery of Murder at Karlov Manor Prereleases that only you can solve!

Prepare to step into the vibrant world of mystery at your favorite Gnome Games store, as it is transformed into a scene of intrigue and suspense. A beloved figure has fallen, and sinister whispers hang heavy in the air. Could it be the charismatic, competitive Barnaby “Mana Burn” Bolt, forever vying for supremacy? Or perhaps the gentle Lyra “Land Whisperer” Willowbrook, championing environmental awareness? Every Planeswalker amongst us becomes a suspect, and every card cast holds a clue.

Solve the Mystery – Intrigue at Gnome Games: A Murder Mystery at the Magic the Gathering Karlov Manor Prerelease

Hark, Planeswalkers! There has been a murder at Gnome Games and we need your help to solve the mystery!

For one event at each store only, Gnome Games transforms into a stage for murder and mayhem. You are no longer just patrons seeking prereleases and preordained packs. You are investigators, thrust into a tangled web of deceit and suspicion.

Unravel the clues as you play in the Magic the Gathering Murders at Karlov Manor Prerelease.

Decipher cryptic messages, untangle alibis, and navigate hidden passages. Use your strategic minds and collaborative spirit to interrogate suspects, analyze evidence, and piece together the puzzle before the final match is played. In the spirit of Magic the Gathering, you’ll earn more than more boosters when you win a match; clues are truly what you seek! 

Will you become the champion of justice, unmasking the killer and claiming victory? Or will you succumb to the shadows, forever trapped in the web of Karlov Manor’s deadly secrets?

The stakes are high, the mystery awaits, and the fate of Gnome Games hangs in the balance.

Gather your Planeswalker companions, sharpen your wits, and step into the shadows. The hunt for the murderer in afoot!
