Outstanding. Played with the family and wide range of ages. We all loved it. Great better-than-clue game. Beatiful to look at. The theme is great as I'm an Umberto Eco fan too.

Great game, and the best deduction game with theme around (there probably arent that many, but I doubt that this one can get topped). Put on a Gregorian chant cd while playing and you are transported to "The Name of the Rose"!
Days of Wonder´s future productions will be worth seeking out for the level of detail put into components alone! A favourite.

I love this game! What makes it great is that deduction is only part of it -you must plan your moves carefully to be in good position at the end.

I've always enjoyed detective/deduction games and this is my favourite. Fun to play and a very strong theme that works very well. The 'ask anything you want' mechanic blew my mind when I first learned it, and it's one of those things that makes it one of those games I'll always want to play.

This game is awesome! Before finding this game, I had this thing where I always wanted to be a monk in the game. And in this game, you are a monk! Also you get to sing, and be silly.

Una validissima alternativa a Cluedo...Ambientazione bellissima tra le mura del monastero e meccanica di gioco complessa ma efficace...Le carte evento movimentano molto le partite...Scoprire l'assassino non è facile ma alla fine del gioco è appagantissimo...

My favorite owned game!! If you enjoy Clue or any other deduction games, you will absolutely love this!!! It takes the deduction aspects of Clue, adds much more strategy (in the form of cards with special powers) and combines it into an amazing package. And the board and components are top notch, also (color evidence pads!). Now you know why I love this game, manowarplayer!

Incredibly fun game. Most likely the funniest game I've ever played. I love deduction games. Murder mystery is perhaps the #1 theme for me. Only problem is that games can last a bit too long, but who cares, it's time well spent anyway.

Very good deduction game. There is more than one valid strategy. The different cards make for nice variety. Something like an improved version of Clue.

Fans of deduction style games will love this game. The best way to describe the game is a combination of "guess who" and "clue" on steroids.

So much more fun than Clue! We love this game in our house and the kids play from ages 5 and up. Nice length game play and easy to learn. A must have!

This game is like the cooler and more likable older sibling of "Clue." You are pitted against other monks who, like the Abbot, are initially the only ones who have a rock solid alibi when faced with a horrible murder at the monastery/abbey.

The Mass aspect of the game really mixes things up and creates some strategic planning of movement as well as actually speeds the game up through the card exchanges which occur at this phase of the game.

Unlike many games, Mystery of the Abbey has a reasonable number of phases and is very easy to learn and get into.

The expansion "The Pilgrim's Chronicles" is cute; the added cards make for some fun moments in gameplay.

My Wife's Favorite Game BY far. She claims it is CLUE on steroids. It is an enjoyable game and just like any other DOW game it is fairly easy to learn!
