Great concept! The prompts were good, though the random nature of the cards meant that I had to go back to fix some of what I wrote before in order to match the current prompt. It's hard to come up with a cohesive mystery based on random prompts, that's for sure! Still recommend giving the game a go though!

thanks for the feedback! :)

No problem! One more feedback - I wasn't sure what to do with the "move suspicion onto another person" prompt/victory condition since there didn't seem to be a mechanical benefit to those prompts, meaning that I can fictionally say "I plant evidence on so-and-so" but I'm still no closer to eliminating tokens.
