Is it possible to customise a murder mystery

by Andy Wilson
(London, UK)

I work for the Economic Justice team of Christian Aid in the UK (a big international development charity similar to Oxfam) and we are planning to organise a murder mystery at our staff conference in January. We would like to be able to use the game as a way of informally engaging people with our campaign on tax justice (focussing on tax havens and large corps avoiding paying tax in poorer nations). Do you know if it would be possible to customise one of your games?

My response:

Hi - and thanks for your interesting question.

First, and I know I'm being slightly pedantic here, they're not "my" games. The games belong to the publishers. But that's not answering your question...

Second, depending on the game, you might be able to get MS Word copies of the game so that you can make the changes that you want to make. To do this you'd need to contact the publishers direct - and some may say yes, some might not.

Alternatively, if you are looking for someone to customise a game for you, then that's a very different proposition. Customisation is likely to be expensive - and I suggest you try Initiative Unlimited.
