Recommendation of game and delivery time

by Tania DENNIS-SOTO

Hello, I wrote to you earlier, regarding the games Way Out West, Halloween Lies and Hollywood Lies, my daughter is having her 12th birthday party with her friends (18 girls, 4 boys) and was wondering which one of the three would be more suitable?

As we are living in Luxembourg I was also interested to know how long it will take for you to post the game? Normally parcels from the UK only take a couple days to arrive so with a bit of luck we should have it next week!! Is there any chance I can contact you by phone?

My response:

Hi - I'll answer your questions in reverse order.

First, I'm afraid I don't give out my phone number. I have a day job and a family and I have to fit this website in and around everything else - a phone would be too intrusive!

Second, all the games on this website are downloaded over the Internet, so you don't have to worry about delivery. That does mean you have to print them out yourself, but there's no postage to pay.

Third, given the high number of girls, I would probably pick Hollywood Lies over the other two. (Hollywood Lies and Halloween Lies are basically the same game - one is simply a "monster" version of the other. I would imagine that girls would prefer the "regular" version to the Halloween version.)

As for Way out West, it has more male characters - although that's not a problem if your girls are happy to dress up as cowboys!
