How to Play: Clue by Clue is a game that tests your thinking skills. It can be played alone or in a group. Solve the mystery below by going through the clues one at a time. Each time you reveal a new clue, stop and think about what it could mean, what you know from all the clues so far, and what you still need to know. After the last clue is revealed, you can read some hints or go straight to the solution!


  1. Was the police officer who was shot really a police officer?
  2. Why did the man in the suit bring a suitcase full of newspaper instead of money?
  3. Why couldn’t police find any sign of a double murder?
  4. Do you think the main in the suit and the fake police officer know each other?
  5. What happened to the money that the third man brought to the crime scene?
