Large groups

by Patricia
(Blackwood, nj USA)

If I host a murder mystery for a large group how do I stop people from stampeding over to the area where the "action" is - even though it will be repeated in other areas (I don't want to tell them that though).

My response:

No idea - but it doesn't sound like you're hosting an interactive murder mystery (such as I promote on this site) but some kind of theatrical event.

In an interactive game there may be action occurring in one location, but chances are that most of the other guests will be too busy with their own plots to spend too much time sightseeing. So in an interactive game it sorts itself out.

But if you're not playing an interactive game, I'm afraid I don't have an answer!
