Happy Birthday RJ
Happy Birthday RJ is an interactive murder mystery party for 12-16 guests (plus one host) published by Freeform Games.
Set in the world of the oil soap operas (along the lines of the Dallas
and Dynasty television shows), Happy Birthday RJ
concerns RJ Harrington's 30th birthday and coming-of-age party. It's a
world of glamour - of big money, big hair and big shoulder pads. And
with the dysfunctional Harrington family and their scheming friends and
neighbours, it's a birthday party that anyone is unlikely to forget.
Luckily for everyone, the local deputy sheriff is also attending the party (he's a close friend of Bobby Harrington, RJ's brother). That's just as well, as Happy Birthday RJ includes a horse theft, a murder before the game and a murder during the game! And that doesn't include anything that the players might want to get up to!
Happy Birthday RJ is an interactive murder mystery game - much like Freeform Games' other games such as All at Sea and Curse of the Pharaoh. Happy Birthday RJ also shares many of the same features - it has the item cards and the ability cards that those games have.
The full cast of Happy Birthday RJ includes:
- RJ Harrington: the birthday boy himself
- Dixie Green: RJ's long-time girlfriend
- Jack Harrington: RJ's father and oil tycoon
- Crystal Harrington: Jack's wife
- Bobby Harrington: RJ's half-brother
- Lucille Harrington: RJ's half-sister
- Ali Fields: a lawyer
- Billy Joe Butler: the neighbour
- Sue Helen Butler: Billy Joe's wife
- Sam Bond: a family friend
- Rick Harper: an old school friend
- Deedee Taylor: Dixie's best friend
- Dolly Douglas: close friend of Lucille
- Drew Morrison: the town doctor
- Randy Coltrane: the deputy sheriff
- Plus the person organising the evening.
Happy Birthday RJ needs a dedicated host, someone to organise the game. I really enjoy being the host - you know what's going on and can watch your friends scheme and plot and be devious to one another.
