how to select game so everyone gets involved

by Marjie
(Tennessee)

I have 15 guests, 8 women (possibly only 7) and 7 men. I need a game with even m/f distribution of characters and really would like all characters to be relevant. (Never hosted a game before and would like a smashing success, have read some types of games leave characters out of the fun.)

Can you help?

My response:

All the 'interactive' games on this site absolutely involve everyone in the plots - they are fully engaging and lots of fun.

And as for male/female ratio, they all work for roughly even genders - it's when you've got lots of one or the other that problems start to occur. (The games manage this by including several gender neutral characters who can be played by men or women.)

So it comes down to choosing a game for the right number of guests (and the games are all flexible) and the theme.

If you like pirates you could choose A Dead Man's Chest, if you like Westerns you could choose Way out West.

Here's a full list of interactive games.

(Don't pick a game that's for the wrong number of players!)

I suggest you take a look at the ones you like the look of, and if you have any more questions about a specific game ask me via the comments below.
