MURDER BY THE DOZEN contains Case Histories for twelve
murder mysteries. Each case is investigated separately and
count.5 es a single game. The object of each game is to be the first
detective on the Micropolis Police Department’s Homicide Squad to
solve the case in question.

twelve cases available.
After the case number is entered, the phone rings in Homicide.
The known facts (Case History) and the requirements for solving
the case are then displayed.
Each detective on a case should use a Mystery Master Worksheet
for taking notes, marking locations and developing solutions. As
the Case History scrolls across your monitor, be sure to write
down the important elements of the case and what specific
information you need in order to solve it. All twelve Case
Histories are repeated in the back of this manual. You may
review them at any time during the course of play or before
After the Case History is given, the Crime Computer will ask how
many detectives are to be assigned to the case. Up to four player8
may try to solve each case and we strongly suggest the formation
of detective teams for larger groups. After entering the number of
detectives, participants will be asked to enter their names. The
Crime Computer will not accept any name longer than Sherlock
