Murders at Karlov Manor: The Case of the Three Blade Knife is the latest Magic: The Gathering crossover from Beadle and Grimm.

Beadle and Grimm’s Pandemonium Warehouse has made a name for itself by supplying players with supplements for Wizards of the Coast’s most popular games. But the company is beginning to make a name for itself with more developed, standout releases too.

D&D and MTG players alike have received Beadle and Grimm’s past releases with great enthusiasm. Now, the company has debuted a full murder mystery game that can be enjoyed in its own right or in tandem with MTG’s latest set: Murders at Karlov Manor.

Known for high-quality premium releases tying into D&D and Magic: The Gathering, Beadle and Grimm’s has gone above and beyond with this new release.

Rather than an upgrade or add-ons for Murders at Karlov Manor, this particular tie-in is a fully-fledged board game set on the plane of Ravnica. Players are tasked with working alongside the Ravnican Agency of Magicological Investigations to solve a tense murder investigation.

While prior knowledge of MTG, and Ravnica especially, will allow players to engage with The Case of the Three Blade Knife’s heady worldbuilding, murder mystery fans with no MTG experience will be able to enjoy cracking this case all the same. The lore and puzzles on display can be enjoyed regardless of prior Magic knowledge,

Befitting Beadle and Grimm’s reputation for high production values, Murders at Karlov Manor: The Case of the Three Blade Knife is a treat for lovers of tactile, highly-detailed games. Featuring maps, dossiers, and all manner of handouts, players will rifle through the evidence left by Lead Inspector Tam Sennic to bust the case wide open.

Games can really make an impact with this kind of physical prop work, and Beadle and Grimm’s is putting its experience in the field to good use.

Additionally, The Case of the Three Blade Knife contains a decorative agency pin, which adds additional AR elements to the game. The associated app contains everything a good sleuth needs, from decoding tech to an audio translator.

For early buyers, Murders at Karlov Manor: The Case of the Three Blade Knife is on sale for a limited time. Until February 2, buyers will get a 20% discount off this game, so those who are interested should take a look as soon as possible.
