The gameplay itself is simple enough and lends itself to a learn-as-you-go type of play. If you have an experienced spirit player, the rest of the group can work their way through the game with ease. Another benefit of the gameplay is that all players interact with their clues as well as the clues of their fellow players, meaning you will not have long periods of downtime where you are waiting for your turn. Overall, Mysterium is a great game for board game beginners and veterans alike if you have 45 minutes and want to do some interpretive investigations.
