About the games

by Marilyn

We are a group of 14 adults (7 couples) and we would like to host a murder game at our weekend away in a country retreat over dinner. Can you recommend one of your games in which each person will have an equally active part?

Also a game which requires no host as we would all like to take part. I assume your games are similar to boxed games one can buy in shops, and that they do come with invitations, format, clues, part script and character descriptions. Is this the case?

My response:

Hi - the games are much more interactive than the ones in the shops and aren't really scripted. You are provided with you character background (in some detail), provided with some objectives and secrets, and it's up to you. The games do include money and clues and whatever else you need.

Your setting sounds like it would suit Dazzled to Death very well, but as that game really needs a host I suggest something like The Final Curtain.

I suggest you have a look and choose the one that you like the sound of best.
