How do I choose games that involves everyone?

by Hanniz

I recently downloaded a game from "" and there was a script for 7 actors (who I needed to hire) and rounds of clues.

There were two round of 100 clues each and I could tell that some guests got tired during the 2nd round of clues. It took about 2 hours to complete the game.

How do I ensure to choose a game that involves everyones interaction rather than just sitting at tables studying the clues?

I'd like to do this commercially as it's not so common in my country. As the cost of actors can be quite pricey, I'm hoping that the hiring of actors is not essential in the future games that I choose.

I plan to use these games for public events (up to 50 pax) and private events (10-50 pax)

Looking forward to hearing from you!

My response

I suggest that you look at the games from Murder Mystery Games Ltd and Freeform Games. They are fully interactive and everyone is completely engaged. You don't even need to hire any actors.

Also, these companies also have a commercial licence (you need to talk to them direct - please mention me when you do!) for people like you.

Here are the links:

Murder Mystery Games

Freeform Games

I've also written a short article here.

Do let me know how you get on!

Steve, I just conducted a 1920's murder game downloaded from Dinner and Murder games and it hit off excellently with my clients.

Thank you!
