Women's Murder Club Tips

Check out our extensive walkthrough for Women's Murder Club: Death in Scarlet.

 

GENERAL TIPS

  • You will start each investigation with 5 hints and 5 hints only. There is no way to accumulate any more so use them wisely and sparingly. They should only be used as a last resort.
  • If you can't figure out certain puzzles you can use the skip button and that part of the game will be solved for you. This is especially helpful in the sections in which you need to arrange the bottles in a certain order.
  • There's no timer in the game so you can take your time and solve the puzzles at your leisure.
  • Some answers are random so in those instances I cannot give you a step by step solution. However, I can give you some tips on how to solve it.
  • Whenever you see an object shimmering, it is an indication of something that you need to investigate.
  • The tokens in the Deadlines Coffee shop are always in the same location from level to level.
