Five Little Pigs - Agatha Christie 

 

I have read Christie´s excellent Five Little Pigs for the "Orient Express" card.  

 

Task: Read a book written or set between 1920 and 1950.

Imperium - Robert Harris

 

Robert Harris's Imperium has white lettering (and the lower part of the cover is black).  In addition, the holders of Ancient Rome's public offices -- including this book's protagonist, Marcus Tullius Cicero -- had to organize a variety of games to entertain the citizens, so the words "game" and "games" appear repeatedly throughout the text.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - J.K. Rowling,Stephen Fry

 

Maycomb County Courthouse: the crime scene that would fit most obviously with our game's murderer (and unlike her own characters as victims, it's not off limits to her per se).

 

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is genre YA and features two characters who are fathers -- Mr. Weasley and Mr. Diggory (plus an honorary third one, Sirius Black).  In addition, Hermione embarks on a campaign of "justice for house elves."

Murder is Easy - Agatha Christie 

 

Task: Read a book that is considered crime or detective fiction.

 

Yep, Agatha Christie, the queen of crime, most certainly fits the bill.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K. Rowling,Stephen Fry

 

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets matches at least 2 of the tasks for the "Planet Camazotz" crime scene card: "set in a different dimension of this world" and "published between 1918 and 2007".  If you award an "assist" to Hermione Granger for, inter alia, stealing the recipe for and concocting the polyjuice potion, and for providing the final crucial clue about the entrance of the Secret Chamber (even if Harry and Ron had to wrench it out of her petrified hand), arguably this book might even fit at least 2 1/2 of the tasks for this card.
