Murder games for 2 hours

by Sander
(Netherlands)

I have a party for about 25 guests and would like to play a murder game. Although I'm quite worried 3-4 hours can be a quite long to play. Are there any murder games available for about 2 hours?

My response:

The 3-4 hour playing time includes giving your guests time to arrive and read their character sheets, and also time for them to wind down afterwards.

If you have less time, then I would make sure everyone has their characters in advance, and then be very strict with the timetable.

Having said that, with 25 players the games tend to take a little longer anyway, so two hours might feel very restrictive.
