"A real game with fake cookies in an authentic fake game box made like a real cookie box!"

Set as part of an old English aristocratic family, in which a rich Uncle from America has passed away and left an immense fortune, and you head to a celebratory tea and scones with the fellow heirs. Unfortunately, of course, they're choosing to poison the cookies in order to increase their share of intelligence.
