Guests who may not want to be fully involved NEW
by: Steve

Ah, I understand now! Sorry for being a bit slow.

If you have a guest who you think won't want to be fully involved, then I would give them one of the optional characters.

All the games can be played with a range guests.

So Hollywood Lies, for example, can be played with anywhere from 16 to 32 guests. That means that there are 16 "core" characters, and everyone else is optional.

You need the core characters, and they tend to have the minimum clues needed to solve the mystery. The optional characters provide more clues, more plots (and hopefully more fun).

But the game works fine without the optional characters, so if you've got someone playing one of them and they don't want to be fully involved, that's okay. The game won't break without them.

I hope that makes sense - and that I've finally answered your question!

Hi, I understand about the host part, I'm wondering about guest. I will be inviting people that I know won't get involved and don't know if this will put a damper on my party. I want my guest to be comfortable and not obligated but still have a good time.

Being the host NEW
by: Steve

Hi,

Well, I find that even as host I am completely involved in hosting a murder mystery game, even if I don't have a character.

But if you're interested in hosting a murder mystery and also trying to solve it, then I suggest you look at The Auction or The Final Curtain.

In those, if you're careful, you can avoid looking at the solution and also try to solve the murder yourself.
