Do you know of any short 1-2 hour mysteries?

by Kirk

Or maybe any recommendations on ways you could shorten existing mysteries a little? Most of the mysteries I've hosted look like they would be really difficult to modify to run in such a short time frame, but I haven't seen as many mysteries as you.

My response:

I'm afraid I don't know of any that short - certainly not as short as an hour.

Sorry, all the games I'm aware of are designed to be played over an evening or so.

How did you get on? NEW
by: Victoria

Hi Kirk,

Did you have much luck shortening one? I'm looking for one that we could definitely finish in two hours, so may need to do something similar. I've found a few 30 min games as well, but I fear they wouldn't be the same....

I'll give it a shot NEW
by: Kirk

Yeah, that's what I figured. I've been toying around with modifying the games a bit, so I'll see if I can strip something down to maybe 2 hours. I prefer playing over a whole evening, of course, but I have a special, short event in mind.

I'll let you know how it goes!
