In general, I recommend that you choose a party game so that you can more-or-less fill it.
The games generally play better if you have more people rather than less, so for example, if you only had 14 people for your party, I would choose The Final Curtain or Way out West rather than The Last Gasp or The Auction.
The following games are ideal for more conservative groups as they don't contain references to drugs and there are fewer shady characters than in the other games.
(Of course, I can't guarantee that someone won't find something in one of the games offensive - these games include murder after all. You know your guests and must use your own judgement.)
The Final Curtain - Disaster strikes the Littledean Theatre Company in 1926. For 7 to 14 people.
Hollywood Lies - a modern-day murder mystery set in Tinseltown. For 16-32 guests, plus one host.
Way out West A Wild West murder mystery game for 10 to 24 guests, plus one host.

I want to host Murder at Sea for my 17th birthday and I wanted to know if it's suitable for teens? Does this murder mystery have references to drugs?

Am organising a sit down dinner for 24 people - many of your games say that they are better as a buffet. Are any in particular good for a sit down meal?

Thanks so much for your website. It has lots of information, but so much so that I am a bit overwhelmed! I have a group that I think will be 19 adults
