Happy birthday RJ -disposing of the gun.

I am hosting Happy Birthday R J soon and just wanted to clarify a couple of things. As I understand it I can decide who the murderer is - should I do this in advance or on the night when I see how things are going? Also, there is a card for the murderer which suggests they dispose of the gun - is this by giving it to someone else or leaving it somewhere obvious or literally getting rid of it (ie where no-one will ever find it)?

My response:

It's up to you whether you want to predetermine who the murderer is or whether you want to decide on the night (based on how people act). Use the checklist on page 5 of the main file to help you decide.

Give the gun card to whomever you've decided is the murderer - see page 9 of the main file for details.

I hope that helps - have a great party!
