If you want no tie-dye fleeces to obsess over, here's a fun new party game from Hulu and Disney Plus Only Murders in the Building.

The Olivers Son of Sam game sounds like a lot of fun, but is it a real game? We take a look at whether or not the game exists in the real world and discuss its origins.

Only Murders in the Building, which was developed by Steve Martin and John Hoffman for Hulu, is a mystery comedy starring Steve, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez as residents in the titular building who share a desire for true crime.

Is the game Olivers Son of Sam real?

Oliver hosts a party game called Son of Sam in Episode 5, titled The Tell, but it isn't real and has been made up for the series.

The rules are as follows: Everyone is dealt a card, and only one person receives the Son of Sam card. After the cards are dealt, the lights are turned off, urging the person who is dealt the Son of Sam card, or the murderer of the game, to pinch someone. After the lights are turned back, the pinched victim pretends to die, and the rest of the group must discover who the murderer is.

The Son of Sam card game, while simple in nature, seems to exist in the real world; however, the game's name is actually inspired by a real-life serial killer.

Who is Sam's son?

The summer of 1976 was a dark summer for New Yorkers as reports of an unidentified man shooting and murdering innocent civilians spread quickly.

Young women became targets, most of them sitting in their parked cars, and the killing spree continued until the fall of 1977.

After being arrested, David Richard Berkowitz confessed to all eight murders and was dubbed the Son of Sam.

Because he claimed that his neighbor, Sam, had a demon dog, the killer was given the moniker.

The Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness, a fascinating documentary on the serial murderer, is now available on Netflix.
