      New Game Arrival!
The Bloody Inn
Pearl Games
The Bloody Inn is for those of us with a warped sense of humor.

France 1831: in a remote corner of Ardéche, the little village of Peyrebeille sees numerous travellers passing through...

Each player owns an Inn and is competing to accumulate the most wealth from their guests. Being greedy Innkeepers and not wanting to arouse the suspicions of the local police, a diabolical plan was hatched.  You all realized it's less of a problem to steal from your guests if they are dead.  However, disposing of the bodies is such a headache and you can't have them just lying around.
