how to choose

In general, I recommend that you choose a party game so that you can more-or-less fill it.

The games generally play better if you have more people rather than less, so for example, if you only had 30 people for your party, I would choose Hollywood Lies or Murder at Sea rather than The Last Gasp or The Auction.

murder mystery party games for conservative groups

The following games are ideal for more conservative groups as they don't contain references to drugs and there are fewer shady characters than in the other games.

(Of course, I can't guarantee that someone won't find something in one of the games offensive - these games include murder after all. You know your guests and must use your own judgement.)

Hollywood Lies - a modern-day murder mystery set in Tinseltown. For 16-32 guests, plus one host. (Includes a kid-friendly version.)
