Welcome to Fat Stan's Speakeasy - and there's been a murder!
Poor Scabface Martins has been gunned down by a masked hoodlum in a long black cloak.
The only way in or out of the Speakeasy is through a secret door, and the doorkeeper swears that nobody has come through that door in either direction for over an hour.
So it must be someone in the Speakeasy that plugged poor Scabface!
In A Speakeasy Murder everyone has a complete character with background, friends and objectives.
Each guest decides how he or she will approach the murder - and the murderer must try to avoid detection.
As well as trying to solve the murder, all the characters have other goals and objectives. In A Speakeasy Murder, for example, there are gangsters and molls all with their own agendas.
(Personally, I think interactive murder mystery games are the most satisfying - there's simply so much going on!)
The cast of A Speakeasy Murder includes:
(The list above is only a small sample of characters - there are many more in A Speakeasy Murder.)
Instead of a formal dinner party, A Speakeasy Murder is better suited to a buffet meal or finger food.
Everyone needs to be able to talk quietly with each other - everyone (not just the gangsters!) needs to scheme and plot against each other,
A Speakeasy Murder needs a host, someone to organize the game.
They will read the entire game and will be available to answer questions.
It's a lot of fun being the host - you know what's going on and can watch your friends scheme and plot and be devious to one another.
A Speakeasy Murder is available from Freeform Games and costs $49.99 USD.

How long does A Speakeasy Murder take to play?

Where's my download?
Shortly after buying A Speakeasy Murder you should receive an email from Freeform Games explaining how to download the game files.
If you haven't received this, please first check your spam filter - sometimes the emails end up there.
If that fails, please get in touch directly with Freeform Games - with the details of which game you bought, when you bought it, and which email address you used. Or contact me (with that same information) and I'll get in touch for you.
How many guests will I need?
You need at least 15 guests and no more than 32.
If you have fewer than 15 guests you will have to drop a character (which may affect the plot), or play a character yourself (not ideal, but I talk about it here), or even ask a guest to play two characters at once.
If you have more than 32 guests you will need to create your own, or use one of the free extra characters provided by Freeform Games when you download A Speakeasy Murder.
Can I host Murder at Sea and also play a character?
The host has an important role in Murder at Sea. The organize and coordinate the party. They also act as an impartial "referee" - so it's important that they have read the game and understand what is going on.
So I recommend not playing a character and hosting the game.
But if you still want to host a game and play a character (or you have to because a player cannot attend), I have advice on doing that here.
