Postal Secret by Ymar Games

Far north on a small island group, a tragedy has happened. Breaking the Postal Secret is the only way to unravel the mystery of the dead postman.

Undercover as the new postman, it is your job to find out what happened by getting to know the islanders and their stories. Even though you may start to like them, reading their letters and manipulating their relationships is the only way to unravel the mystery. The Postal Secrect no longer counts!

Playtime:  ca. 1 hour
