The Curse of the Burial Dagger

Play this award-winning forensic science based puzzle mystery meets graphic novel in classes or groups.

A mansion near Dundee, 1923. Susie Sato finds herself investigating a murder when her great-uncle and host Lord Hamilton is found dead in his private museum, an ancient Egyptian burial dagger protruding from his back. Could it be the curse of the dagger, an object Lord Hamilton was warned not to remove from the tomb? Or could something else have caused his death?

A collaboration between Fast Familiar and the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science at the University of Dundee and is suitable for classrooms, families and friends aged 11 and above. Can you solve the mystery?

You can buy one game link (£3.50), which allows up to 6 people to play on different devices. Or - if you are, for example, a teacher - you can buy a bundle of 6 game links (£8.00), each of which can have 6 people playing… so that the whole class can play!

We also offer teacher materials and experiments that go alongside the game. Please get in touch at
