Dark Stories is an easy to play and fun game but some of the stories are quite difficult. All the stories are fictional. To solve them, the players will need to prove their skills as detectives.

Dark Stories must be played in group. A person -chosen as narrator- picks a mystery and reads its description aloud.
Then he/she reads its solution without telling the other people. The rest of the players then have to make questions in order to solve the mystery.

The narrator can only answer the questions using "Yes", "No" or "It is not relevant". The only possible solution is the one given at the back of each mystery card. If the answer is still not clear enough, the players must follow the narrator's interpretation of the mystery.

A typical fragment of a gameplay could be:

Player1: "Did he die because of the shot?"
Player2: "Was he poisoned?"
Narrator: "No"
Player3: "Did he have children?"
Narrator: "It's not relevant"
Player1: "Are there other people in the story?"
Narrator: "No"
Player2: "Did he commit suicide?"
Narrator: "Yes"

When the narrator considers that the story has been solved enough, the narrator can conclude the game and read the whole solution.

It is up to the narrator to give some clues if the story is in a deadlock.

It is perfect for birthday parties, camps... and every situation in which you join several friends.

This free App includes more than 200 stories and we will add new stories periodically.

Accidents, suicides, thefts... Will you be able to solve every mystery?

Very fun game which makes you think! 🤔

I love this app! It really makes you think outside of the box! I love making my friends use their head and hearing what their answers will be to these wild riddles! Also, having some of the riddles be locked makes sure that you’re not looking at all of the riddles in one day. This is one of my favorite apps! Also, add a few more riddles if you can. Thank you!

Best of the Lateral thinking games

There are a lot of lateral thinking games out there and they all share the common trait of “unsolvable” unless you play in a group. That said, I found the stories in this game very inventive and a notch better than the rest. There are not so many repeats or common stories you get in Dark Stories.

Love these kinds of riddles - but one question

Our whole family enjoys these riddles. Some are old favorites but most are new to us. One question though, is there a version without so much murder? Our 7 yo doesn’t like that part of it.

Hi, we are happy that you like it. Unfortunately we don't have a version without deaths. We will consider adding a filter so that all the stories related to death can be skipped. We hope you have fun with some of the stories
