New game -- Davy Jones' Locker

'It is 1785, and the Caribbean is a hotbed of violence, treachery, the occult and, of course, piracy. Tortuga, an island off the north coast of Haiti, is home not only to peaceful plantations, but also to thieves, gypsies, scavengers, voodoo queens and grave robbers. Tortuga is also a pirate stronghold and a frequent port-of-call for the most feared pirates in the Caribbean.

'Abel 'Blackheart' Read, the Caribbean's most nefarious pirate, had wrought havoc for many years throughout the region -- but now his reign of terror is over. First, Blackheart and the Pegasus, his ship, were captured a month ago -- and then two weeks ago Blackheart's second-in-command, Calico Jack, ran his ship (the Orion) aground off Tortuga's rocky north coast. With these two pirates (and their ships) out of business, the waters of the Caribbean are much safer.

'They have also created a power vacuum in the pirate world -- one that will no doubt be filled before too long.

"Tonight, the Libra, a retired warship converted for commercial use, departs from Tortuga on its journey to St. Augustine, Florida. For some of its passengers, this will prove to be a profitable journey. For others, Tortuga may be the last dry land they ever see...'

Our second new game of the summer, and this one's ideal for fabulous pirate parties! It's written for 9 to 11 players plus a host, and the action takes place aboard the good ship Libra, where no-one is as they seem -- nuns, gypsies, pirates and bounty hunters mingle, plot and scheme!

Because Davy Jones' Locker is set on a ship, it works just as well for outdoor or indoor parties. Pirates never go out of style, and your guests will love the costumes as much a the characters.

Davy Jones' Locker is suitable for adults and for kids down to the age of 15 or so. We don't recommend it for younger kids.

Davy Jones' Locker is for 9-11 players and a host, and you can find all the details on our website, at:

Playtesters wanted!

Here at Freeform Games we're continuously developing new murder mystery games. How would you like to see our new ideas before anyone else, and to play them for free?

There is a catch, of course -- you and your players will have to fill out brief questionnaires saying what you thought of the different aspects of the game. But you'll also have the pleasure of knowing that you're helping us improve our murder mystery games for everyone else!

If you'd like to find out more about playtesting for us, there's more details on our discussion forum here:<br>
