Poll: Game theme
So, I have the premise for a game I want to design. It's a find the killer, murder mystery deduction card game. All of the cards will be characters. Thematically I want the cards to be a group of shady characters and I don't want to go any further in the design process until I set the theme. So my poll here is asking a simple question: which theme do you like the best?
Which theme do you like best? (These are not game titles, just theme ideas. Please comment with more suggestions.)
Pirates: Murder on the High Seas
Jailbirds: Murder on Death Row
Assassins: Broken Code
Mobsters: Murder in the Family

Wait... Murder on Death Row? Are you serious? That'd be awesome! That's a whodunnit I haven't seen before.

I also thought of Geriatrics: Murder at the Nursing Home, but I thought it would be a little too politically incorrect.

All those themes are cliche, if you ask me. Can you come up with something completely original?

It was a dreadful and stormy night so all the kids hopped in bed with Mom and Dad. Later that night you are awoken to a very warm substance touching your leg. EWWWW! Who wet the bed?!!

That original enough for a deduction game? lol

Twin Peaks
/thread

I recommend Twin Peaks every time someone is looking for a theme, mostly because I want a TP themed game so badly. But here, it actually works. The richness of the theme is worth whatever the licensing rights might cost.
