Murder Mystery for business function

by Gregg Karlins

I am hosting a sales meeting and our theme is Murder Mystery. We are trying to get our sales people to ask more question of our customers, so it ties in well.

Anyway, we have about 40 participants.

What would be your suggestion for a game in this environment?

I was considering Last Gasp or Auction.

We have the option of doing it over dinner or do it during daily breaks 1/2 hour at a time.

Any insight would be helpful.

Thank you.

My response:

You've chosen exactly the two games I would have picked. My preference would probably be The Auction over The Last Gasp, but purely because The Auction is set in the modern day.

Both games take 2 to 2.5 hours to run - and you really need a solid block of time to run them. (If you do it in stages, it's highly likely that play will continue during "downtime".)

I hope that helps!
