Birds of a Feather: Gameplay Basics

In Murder of Crows, players work to collect all of the letters necessary to spell "murder." Each letter card contains information about the crime at hand — the who, what, where, why, and how.

Each letter played has a special ability. Plan your approach to make the most of additional draws, forced discards, and steals. Discard matching cards — or Wild Crows — to be immune to a special effect.

The first player to complete the word "murder" wins the game and tells the story of the murder from their cards.

Add gameplay variety with The Murdered Third two-player variant and make your own custom cards (see the "Resources" sidebar).

Who was murdered? Why? Find out in Murder of Crows.
