Which game would you recommend?

by Suraj Shah

Hi we are a group of 40 somethings living in the city - Nairobi and are going to spend 5 nights at the Kenyan coastal town to celebrate the 40th birthday of a friend. We are 10 confirmed with a possible 4 more adults. I would like to set a scene of beach barbecue starting with cocktails as the setting for a muder mystery evening for one of the evenings of our trip.

What/which game would you suggest best suited to the above?

My response:

The only murder mystery game I can think of with that kind of setting is the Hawaii-themed Lei'd to Rest. You could try that (although obviously it's not very African!).

Alternatively, if you would like something more African in flavour, you could try Death on the Gambia, although it's not set at a barbecue.
