how should the clues be laid out in the game?
I am having a murder mystery party for a project and I was wondering how the clues should be layed out and possibly what types of things I should include as clues.
I do not want the game to be scripted at all I am just having trouble setting up an alternate way to have the game that is going to be fun for 18 year olds.
My theme is a high school reunion and the queen bee is murdered on the stage while giving her speech. Thanks so much for your help!
How you lay the clues out is very much up to you - each murder mystery game seems to do it differently. There's no single fixed approach.
As for what can be clues - well, again, they can be anything: letters, cheques, footprints, fingerprints, blood samples, overheard conversations, chemical residue and, well, pretty much anything you like.
If you're struggling to think of anything I suggest that you watch or read some detective fiction, or see what other murder mystery party game writers are doing.
I hope that helps.
