Death Bemoans Her

by Jan
(Seattle, WA USA)

We played Death Bemoans Her at one of our Red Hat events. The site was aboard the 54' yacht of one of the members (her husband skippered it out into Puget Sound where we conducted the mystery).

I was the hostess and found the game to be a little too complicated for our group (ages 60 to 85). There were too many papers to juggle i.e., Gazette, clues, other stuff.

We did fine with reading our roles, but the second round fell apart since we couldn't really get up and mingle very easily.

We ate lunch at anchor (engine noise off), and decided to read the round 2 (concealed) clues.

Then everything made sense and we could guess the murderer fairly easily done by that point.

Then we started the engines up and motored home.

It was a lovely day on the water, so we all had a good time.
