Jack the Ripper

A Social Deduction Primer Game with 2-15 Minute Playtimes


February 28, 2017 – St. Louis, MO – Crypt Monkey Studios, LLC has announced the release of Jack the Ripper, an easy to learn, quick playing filler-primer game that puts players in the shoes of one of four scavenger hunters or the Whitechapel Murderer himself, Jack the Ripper.

The year is 1888 and the city of London is terrorized by a menace the likes of which the world has not seen before. In an effort to keep spirits high and not allow this murderer to rule the day, you and your friends defiantly go on with an annual scavenger hunt. The night is a success and as members of your team find the last item on your scavenger hunt list, it seems nothing can go wrong. That’s just about the time you realize that someone in your group is the notorious Jack the Ripper. But which of you is it?

As you find that you have become trapped, you creep through the dark searching for a means to defend yourself. One by one, the items from your scavenger hunt reveal themselves to become the weapons of your salvation. But the question remains, who is friend and who is foe?

“Thanks so much CMS, we absolutely love the fast mechanics, the slick and creepy look and the devious play style of JtR, and I’m absolutely glad I backed!” – underAtack, Kickstarter Backer
