‘’ This is a really fun, challenging game for all generations to enjoy together. We own a lot of games (seriously, I mean A LOT!!!) and this is very easily in our top 5. It’s a brilliant concept, very well thought out, and has different ways of playing so it’s always full of surprises. We cannot recommend it enough.’’
‘’We had lots of belly laughs, cheating, plotting and outright skulduggery from some detectives in order to win. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves playing games or escape rooms. We cannot wait for the next game to come out!!!!’’
"Foul Play is a murder mystery card game and gave us a lot of fun last week. We all enjoyed it. I really liked the fact it was a card game so small enough to pack in a bag when we get the chance to go away again."
Foul Play is one of those games where you play it, and wonder why no-one has done it before. Once you get the hang of it, which takes all of two minutes, turns fly around. You find yourself trying to read the other peoples’ faces when they pick up a card, looking for tell-tale signs of disappointment or excitement, and trying to remember what colour the back of that card was.
I really enjoyed Foul Play. It’s fast, easy (although tricky after a couple of glasses of Port), and it’s a game that feels like one of those that’s been in a family for years already. It takes up no real space, it’s cheap (less than £9), and I genuinely really like it. It feels a bit like it’s distilled Cluedo – without the board. If you’re looking for a filler or something to play with the family, or to take anywhere for a quick blast, I really recommend it.
"The pace of the game is just right, with everyone doing their best to find the evidence and call out the right suspect. It's a fun game, which will keep you on your toes, keep your mind from falling asleep and I think probably help with memory!"
"This is a brilliant game for holidays and family gatherings. Highly recommended for all would-be detectives, this perfect gem of a game proves that small parcels can be deceptively large in concept, design and entertainment."
‘Foul Play card game is a little different from other murder mystery games we’ve played and it keeps you on your toes. It’s certainly kept us well entertained recently.’

‘I can't tell you how much I enjoyed spending the morning learning to play this delightful game. I have to say, this is a great game to keep in your pocket for when we are finally all able to sit in pub gardens. It is a fun game that is quick to pick up. The artwork is a lot of fun as well.’’
"Setting up the game is very simple. The instructions are easy to follow. This is a good family card game where logic and puzzle solving skills come into play. It is fun, engaging and excellent for good quality family time. As it is game that comes as a pack of small playing cards, it is also very portable and can be played anywhere. If you love escape room, puzzle or logic games or even card games, we can recommend Foul Play as it is a great way to spend an evening and have lots of fun doing so."
‘’Foul Play is a light casual simple hand management game that doesn’t overstay it’s welcome.
You’ll steal cards from other detectives with a grin on your face, or grimace as you’re forced to share evidence with other players.
It's a game that is simple to learn, straightforward to play, and will make you smile as long as you aren’t taking things too seriously.’’
"Big Caravan Energy!
"It’s quite jolly in its way, and there is a certain amount of tension in trying to work out what other people have already seen. A light entry to the spot the murderer genre, which is always welcome."
"Foul Play is a clever little card game that takes up very little space, and is pretty easy to teach. The mystery theme is fun, there’s plenty of player interaction, and we liked how each mode favored a different side of the game."
"Foul Play reminded me a little of Cluedo, crossed with Exploding Kittens! Nice artwork, good flavour text, easy rules to pick up. Very portable. The rules were clear and intuitive.
A Well-paced crowd pleaser."
"Everyone is involved on each turn so it's a great option for kids who tend to get bored quickly. Finding a new card game that is quick to learn, fun to play, and keeps everyone off their screens is absolutely great!"
"We enjoyed Foul Play and it would fit well in murder mystery theme night too. Being that it’s two games in one, it is really good value for the price too. Plus, it’s portable, which makes it an entertaining game for a family dinner out or to take on holiday.
"Foul Play is an easy-to-play game that you can enjoy with family and friends and perfect if you enjoy murder, mystery, whodunnit and crime drama. My kids are 11 and 14 and think it's a brilliant game. I love Foul Play and think it's a great game to get your hands on to enjoy hours of mystery solving and laughs"
