Gender-neutral characters

For the some of the games (Dazzled to Death, Bludgeoned on Broadway), it says that 8 of the characters can be played by either men or women, however the character lists on the preview file don't address this as each character has specific names, how would it work?

PS. I am trying to organize this for a females only hens night.

My response:

The gender-neutral characters (those that can be played by a man or a woman) generally have a gender neutral name. For example, "Chris" can be Christopher or Christine, "Alex" can be Alexander or Alexandra.

It's not always easy to tell though - in Bludgeoned on Broadway the gender neutral characters are Pat, Scrappy, Taylor and Jordan.

And in Dazzled to Death it's Reggie, Soames and Christy.

In either case, for an all-female game you're going to need some players to play men. I've written a short article on that here.
