Murder Mystery Reviews

A very simple, straightforward game which involved little deduction, no intriguing alibis - ideal for beginners and the geriatric, but we had a great time. A sunny evening, excellent buffet and 14 players mostly well-used to ad-libbing all contributed! The props were easy: we drew an outline of the ''body'' on the ground and borrowed cones and tape, with a genuine bloodstained dibber. The balloons were labelled CHAG.

We had great evening that was incredibly well organised by our hosts (this was important!). The names for the charcters were really good... It was great to have each session numbered and we all loved the letters. Altogether it was really good fun and we liked the twists and turns in the plot making it plausible that anyone could've done Matt Finish 'in'. Our hosts had arrange 'phone calls and had a 'body' on the patio outside as well as fantastic food and wine. BRILLIANT!
