No host

I am really interested in planning a murder mystery theme for NYE for 11 of us but can see that most of these mean I would have to be the host. I have heard of nights where there are recordings that can be played so all guests are included in the game.

Please could you let me know if this is correct?

My response:

You are correct that most of the games on my site need a dedicated host to make them run properly.

And I know the "How to Host a Murder..." games that you can buy in stores come with a recording that can be played. (Last time I played one of these it came on a cassette - I imagine that it's now a CD.)
