Black Friday Special: Brindlewood Bay

Celebrate the unofficial US holiday of Black Friday from the comfort of your own home. Wearing sweatpants is encouraged!

In this single session of Brindlewood Bay, the Mavens’ Black Friday deal hunting is interrupted by a disturbance in the Ambergis Galleria. What sinister force could stop the throngs from buying bargains? The Mavens must put away their coupons and pull out their magnifying glasses to untangle the mystery.

The tone of the game is usually light with some dark moments interspersed.

Content Warning: murder, aging, seniors, excessive spending, cults

In it, you play a group of elderly women, members of the local Murder Mavens Mystery Book Club, who help the authorities solve murder cases in a picturesque New England town. Over the course of their investigations, they become aware of a dark occult conspiracy that connects the cases, and will eventually have to face that conspiracy in order to save their community.
