About Deduce or Die

Deduce or Die! is deduction game designed by Larry Levy. Larry introduced the game to the world in online magazine The Games Journal. Larry introduced Deduce or Die! as follows:

If you're a fan of deduction games such as Code 777, Clue, Sleuth or Black Vienna, here's an original design you may want to check out. I actually find it more challenging than any of the games I've listed, a statement that will be greeted with delight by some and with horror by others. If you're still with me, be prepared to sharpen both your pencils and your little gray cells. The game is afoot!

Larry Levy designed Deduce or Die! to be played with three decks of ordinary playing cards. When I first played it I fell in love with it but decided it needed its own special cards, so I designed some. That design got me a game designer credit on Board Game Geek.
