The Final Curtain -Guests?

I am thinking of purchasing The Final Curtain for my 21st. I have 14 people but on the list there seems to be 15? (Unless I can't count). Is that right?

Could you tell me a little bit about what I'd be expected to do as Jay -would I be very involved with the game or would everyone else be doing most of the talking?

Are any guests expected to do any re-enactments etc?

Sorry all very new to this!!

My response:

The Final Curtain is for up to 14 people. I'm not quite sure where you're getting 15 from, but even so the game contains instructions for which characters not to use if you can't cast everyone.

As for playing Jay, you'll need to print everything out and prepare the materials before play. You'll also have to read through the instructions (which explain everything that you need to do), and perhaps most importantly you'll have to make sure that you don't read the solution.

The instructions are clear and explain everything you have to do. You won't go wrong if you follow them.

As for re-enactments, there is a tiny bit of acting in that the cast of players acts out the scene with the poison, but it's only a couple of minutes long and is just a bit of fun. The rest of the game is carried out by people talking to each other.

I hope that helps - please tell me how you get on!
