Two players enjoying Casino Fatale murder mysteryCasino Fatale - but who is Mr X?

the story

On the banks of the River Seine in Paris, the Hotel D'Etoile has a fabulous casino - known as the Casino Fatale.

Rumour has it that the casino is connected with "Mr X", the mysterious underworld boss.

Who is Mr X? Find out at Casino Fatale...

how casino fatale works

Casino Fatale is an interactive murder mystery game, so all the players receive complete details of their character, including a detailed backstory, objectives that they must try to achieve, and information about other characters.

They also have item cards (that represent guns, knives, fabulous jewels and so on), and abilities (that let them detect secrets find out information about other people).

In my opinion, once you've played an interactive murder mystery game, you won't want to go back to any other style.

I ordered and held this murder mystery for my son's 16th birthday party. It was fantastic!!

All the kids and adults, 18 people, got into character and dressed for the party.

They stayed in character the full 4 hours and have continued to talk about it, and all have asked me to host another 2 years later.

Tips are to give each character a note pad, pen and disposable camera when they arrive. (Develop their pictures as a belated party favor, but the host ends up with photos you would have otherwise missed.)

Decorate and have tables of poker or other casino games available.

the cast and plots

Casino Fatale has a number of different plots to keep everyone busy. For example, there is the charity auction, the identity of Mr X, secret plans, and a criminal turf war.

The cast of Casino Fatale includes:

  • Various rich and famous guests - playboys, designers, poets, scientists, starlets and the like.
  • Two French Detectives
  • the Casino management and staff.

the details

Instead of a formal dinner party, Casino Fatale is better suited to a buffet meal or finger food.

Everyone needs to be able to talk quietly with each other - to plot and scheme and achieve their goals.

Casino Fatale needs a dedicated host, someone to organise the game.

They will read the entire game and will be available to answer questions.

I really enjoy being the host - you know what's going on and can watch your friends scheme and plot and be devious to one another.
