Can you recommend something?

by Zac

We are really stuck for a mystery to play. We have played Celebrity Celebrations and Storm Survivors by Merry Mysteries. We really enjoyed Celebrity Celebrations as you can really get into character and it's easy to remember who everyone was as the costumes were dead give aways.

We would like to try a different publisher this time and maybe a more interactive game. We are looking for something REALLY funny, can really decorate and risky. We are all in our early 30's so we have a good sense of humour.

There are no mysteries that are really popping out at me with ideas on how to go overboard with decor, etc. There will be 14 of us (including host). Can you recommend something?

My response:

I suggest you have a look at one of Freeform Games' parties, such as Way out West (cowboys!) or A Dead Man's Chest (pirates!). There are lots of costuming opportunities with those.
