Murder Mystery Reviews

This game was a lot of fun. The "fair play" clues are there, but don't count on everyone spotting them! The story plays out like a soap-opera. In fact, I used an 80's nighttime soap backdrop to the party, (think "Dynasty," "Dallas" and so forth). Have your guests arrive in the glitz and glamour of the "me" decade, (not to mention huge shoulder pads) and you get the idea. Very simple to use and serve it along with an elegant dinner and you can't go wrong! Very pleasantly surprised.

We had a great time. The characters fit the people we invited and they loved the twists and turns.

Our Murder Mystery was last night and we had a blast! Everyone was so into their character! I included a dinner and it took place throughout the dinner. We had awards at the end for best sctor, actress and costume! I never thought my friends would get so into it! It was a new way of getting into the Halloween spirit without a Halloween party. I just finished putting a picture book together! I will definitely do this again!!!

Talk about a fun filled night! After the Pizza arrived, our gathering dove head first into our respective characters. Everybody seemed to be a legitimate suspect! I thought the interworkings of the relationships between the characters was intriguing. Everyone had something to hide! Their were a few startled faces in the room when the killer finally revealed themselves.
