My daughter is turning 18 and would like to have a "murder mystery" birthday party with her friends in our home.

We are interested in your Happy Birthday RJ murder mystery game for my daughter's 18th birthday party. Is there a way to modify the game so we can use 11 people instead of 15 (5 boys,6 girls - all 17-18 years of age) Also, can we change the birthday person to a female instead of a male? My daughter's initials are CJ so we would call it Happy Birthday CJ..

Thank you for your help and time! We greatly appreciate it!!

My response:

After you purchase Happy Birthday RJ from Freeform Games you can ask them to send you the original MS Word files, and then you can modify the game to suit your party (such as changing RJ to CJ).

Happy Birthday RJ has been written so that it can be played with anywhere from 12 to 15 guests, so to play it with 11 all you need to to is decide which other character to drop (you will probably need to give the information that that character had to others).

I hope that helps, and have a great party!
