Lokuhai Beach is a small, isolated beach owned by Harmony Cove Resort, about a half-hour drive through rocky, mountainous countryside. Advertised as the "Last Real Hawaiian Beach", it's gorgeous...
However, the luau started badly... the bus broke down on the way to the beach, and everyone had to walk the last fifteen minutes.
Everyone's cell phones seem to be unable to reach out of the mountains to the resort (or anywhere else), and the driver has been unable to get the bus running again...
Lei'd to Rest is an interactive murder mystery game, which means that each player receives a detailed character booklet that includes a backstory, objectives for them to solve and information on other characters.
They may also have item cards (that may represent important clues) and abilities (that allow them to uncover secrets and information about other characters.)
In my opinion, once you've played an interactive murder mystery game, you won't want to play any other sort.
The cast of Lei'd to Rest includes:
Set at a beachside luau party on Hawaii, Lei'd to Rest is ideal for any summer party out of doors, maybe with a pool and a barbecue... You can easily give your party a Hawaiian theme by decorating with tiki masks, leis and so on.
Lei'd to Rest needs a dedicated host, someone to organise the game (in this case playing the part of the Bus Driver).
I really enjoy being the host - you know what's going on and can watch your friends scheme and plot and be devious to one another.
Lei'd to Rest is available from Freeform Games and comes in two versions.
