WWII Murder Mystery

We hosted "The Last Gasp" a little over a year ago, and everyone is still talking about it. We now want to host another party, and we think your games well-written and flexible. But we are particularly interested in a WWII theme. Do you have any scenarios from that era or could you suggest an existing game that we might modify? Thank you!

My response:

I'm glad you enjoyed The Last Gasp - and thank you for posting the link to your photos (click here).

As for a WWII game, Death on the Gambia is set in 1939, just before the outbreak of WWII and is full of British Spies, German Spies and other wartime stuff. It's smaller than The Last Gasp as it is for up to 11 players - but there are a couple of free extra characters available, and you could write your own.

WWII murder mystery
by: Mike

My wife and I wrote a script for a WWII murder mystery last year and had an absolute blast. We then created a lot of props for the party and it really made it a huge sucess. The script is easy to follow and allowed us to have two seperate parties. One for 16 people and one for 10. both were a great experience. if you have any questions please contact me at billguarnere@hotmail.com
