What does the host do at the party?

What does e host do at a murder mystery party, are they a character as well?

My response:

Generally the host prints out the game and prepares everything. (They're often the ones who downloaded the game in the first place, although this isn't always so.) They also organise the venue, arrange for the invitations to be sent out and generally act as host on the day.

If you're a super-host, you might also prepare snacks and food. Or if you're me, you delegate!

Depending on the game, they may play a character - but usually they don't. (And if they do play a character, it's usually a minor role because there's so much else to do.)

As a host you get to see your friends blackmail and scheme and enjoy themselves - it's extremely satisfying to see the party unfold and to have everyone enjoy themselves!

I hope that helps!
