UNSOLVED CASE FILES: HARMONY ASHCROFT (Pressman/UnsolvedCaseFiles.com, 1 to 8 players, ages 14 and up, 30-120 minutes, $26.99)
Unravelling mysteries has long been a staple of fact and fiction, be it true crime documentaries to docudramas based on real life events. One of the interesting subsets of this genre is the “cold case”, a mystery from years ago that has either been considered solved but in a less than satisfying way or has not been solved at all. (That was the premise for a very successful TV series, aptly titled Cold Case, that ran for 7 seasons from 2003-2010.) That cold case premise is visited once again as players assume the roles of detectives trying to free a wrongly convicted man and find the real murderer of a young woman about to be married in Unsolved Case Files: Harmony Ashcroft.
