Which murder mystery game would be best

by Mike Woods
(Manchester UK)

Hi

I would like your recommendations as to which game to choose.

There are several nuances with my group, they are:

13 players plus myself as host.

Different nationalities, British, American, French, German, Irish (all speak English).

Only 2 females in the group.

Wide age group from 30-60.

My response:

The biggest challenge in choosing a game for your group is the number of females - you have very few. The two games that are the best fit are The Final Curtain and Death on the Gambia (you will have to use some of the free extra characters).

However, in both cases you will need one of the men to play one of the female characters. (That doesn't need to be a problem, as I explain in my article on playing the opposite sex.)

Unfortunately the other games that I can think of all have even more female characters, so are less likely to be suitable.
