What can I do if the murderer is revealed beforehand?
by Odette Guli
We are hosting "Murder at the four Deuces 2" as a teambuilding event at our company.
Each person received their character description and instructions. Unfortunately some people found out who the killer is and who the victim is also.
Is there perhaps another killer or victim so that we can put a twist to the game that only the hosts will know about?
Odette - I'm afraid to say that you are probably stuck.
The only way around this is to significantly re-write the game to create a new killer/victim. While it's not impossible, the amount of work that will take is not insignificant.
As it's a business teambuilding event, I suggest that you simply buy another game. (If you compare the cost of another game with the hourly cost of employing someone to do the re-write, you'll quickly realise that buying another game is the cheapest thing to do.)
If you do want to rewrite the game, you'll need to contact the publisher (Dinner and a Murder Mystery Games in this instance) and see if they will let you have an editable copy of the game for you to customise.
(I can imagine how this has happened - it's possible that someone has hosted or played Murder at the Four Deuces 2 and blogged about it. In their enthusiasm, they've given away the game secrets. So please please please, if you do blog (or tag photos or whatever), don't give away game secrets!)
