Forget about Snapchat and role-playing. The latest obsession that's keeping stan Twitter up all night is the murder mystery game, where one can test his or her deductive skills in solving murder cases involving various Kpop idol groups such as Wanna One, Seventeen, Cosmic Girls, Monsta X and PRISTIN, among others.
Twitter user @adorehyuks started this trend with her game titled “Murder 101: The Wanna One Crime Game.”
Soon, other K-pop fans decided to join in on the fun and created their own variations of this game using different idol groups and scenarios.
It also spawned several memes and got the KPop fans' creative juices going.

The game is similar to Cluedo: one of the KPop group's members is found dead in a
room. The victim is mysteriously killed. The suspects are the rest of the group members.
Participants are given a photo of the crime scene, a list of suspects, a timeline of each suspect, and a transcript of the suspect's interrogation. The suspects are the rest of the group members.
Each game lasts for a few days to a week, giving participants enough time to analyze the data given by the original poster. To keep the players engaged and immersed in their roles as detectives of a murder case, the original poster provides various pieces of evidence and clues over time to slowly help them uncover the secrets of the case.
From the player’s perspective, the game is very engaging due to the original poster’s fast and constant replies to his or her questions.
If you’re bored with your timeline, why not hop on the mystery train and join in on the fun?
