The Fox

Revolutionary War Spy Mystery Game



Set during the colonial Revolutionary War era, players will dress up and assume a character. There is a spy among our forces, work together to identify and figure out who the Fox is. In This G-rated spy mystery is great for family reunions, team building exercises, small or large parties and perfect for history buffs who enjoy recreating, however loosely, historical times.

Revolutionary War Spy Mystery Game


In these popular spy games, the Revolutionary war troops are deserting faster than they can be recruited. Supplies are harder to get as the British always seem to seize or requisition all the stockpiles before the Colonists. The farmers now want gold or silver, not paper money. Many people are leaning toward suing for peace and taking their punishment. The year is 1780 in the English Colonies of America. The Colonies have declared for independence and are involved in a revolution against England. The Colonists have had some minor wins, some disastrous losses, and lots of discouragement. A new flag will only motivate the army so far!

Headquarters suspects that there is a spy (known as The Fox), passing secrets to the British Forces. General Washington suspects everyone. He is worried The Fox may even be one of his staff. His Chief of Staff, Colonel Hathaway, has called for a meeting at an inn in Fairfax, Virginia. He doesn’t want to meet around his other Headquarters personnel where he suspects there may be a leak of information. With luck we should be able to uncover the spy tonight, and after a fair trial The Fox will be hung in the morning. Don’t make plans for tomorrow afternoon!

    We purchased your mystery game, The Fox, and our annual family get-together played this game this past September (2007) at a Victorian bed and breakfast here in Montana. We did full costume and the evening was so much fun. We weren’t great actors but we had fun. Attached are a couple of photos for you.

    We enjoyed The Fox so much that we decided to ordered another one of your mystery games! Now I can’t wait to play the Queen’s Jewels!

    Thank you so much for making quality mystery games available. When we got The Fox, we were so impressed, and our friends were too. It was the best party I’ve ever had…I never realized how fun the mystery games were, until the garbage was removed and the result was pure fun. Thank you for making my party a success, and for continuing to make good, clean fun.

    We had a great game last Friday evening with a small group of 13 and 14 year olds from a gifted and talented class…they loved the costumes, intrigue and brain power needed! My favorite parts are the messages and notes that are introduced throughout the game to keep it going….we had quite a few tangents, but the messages kept us on track….very fun….we all want to do it again with another game! Thanks for making these G-rated, also. I had downloaded some other ones that, once read, had very dark overtones and undertones….not comfortable with that for our group.

    I’m a US History teacher. I broke them up into smaller groups and it worked perfectly. It was a lot of fun, and I’m going to use it again next year. Thanks so much!
