How to Play Hunt A Killer

Solving a murder case with Hunt A Killer is just like a true crime investigation. If you love true crime, you might be familiar with the concepts and investigatory tools employed in our boxes. Examine crime scene evidence, inspect suspects’ personal effects, read autopsy reports, and determine the means, motives, and opportunities of suspects.

  • Means

    This is how the murder was committed.

    Examine evidence and clues to find the cause of death.

  • Motive

    Identify which suspect(s) had the motivation to kill the victim(s).

    Hint: Suspects with no motive likely are not the killer.

  • Opportunity

    Opportunity is the ability for the suspect to commit the crime.

    Compare alibies and the timeline to discover which suspect(s) had the opportunity to commit the crime.


We highly recommend creating a dedicated space for your gameplay and using tools such as a murder board to help you organize evidence and visualize connections between suspects, places, evidence, and crime scenes.

If at any time you become stuck on a puzzle or cipher, or want to check the solution to a game, check the included inventory card for a link to the game’s Hints and Reveals.

When you unbox a Hunt A Killer game, be sure to check your evidence against the game’s inventory card to be sure you have everything. Although rare, a missing clue could mean the difference between solving the case and becoming stuck. Should any issues arise, please visit our Missing Items page.
