Large group parties....help!

by Sarah Barake
(Ottawa, Ontario, Canada)

We want to plan a Christmas party for a large group of about 70 people.

The idea I was going for was to have about 10-15 people as actual characters and the rest would watch the mystery unfold and essentially be 'detectives".

They would have dinner, relax and sort of play as a team with their other table members.

I assumed that the characters would mingle with the tables and could be asked questions by the detectives.

Is there anything that would accommodate this idea?

My response:

You're in luck - the murder mystery games published by Mysteries-on-the-Net do exactly that. You have a small number of characters and everyone else is a detective.

Their games cater for up to 100 players, so you should find one that suits you.
