'Death Before Dinner'  Game Synopsis

6 - 8 Guests (including Host)

Here's a chance for you and your guests to play a classic whodunnit...full of twists and fun. It had been planned as an intimate dinner party for eight. Lady Fanny's guest list was small, but all were members of society: Hon. and Mrs. Charles Ruskin (Lord and Lady Ruskin's son and daughter-in-law), The Duke and Duchess of Wollingford (Lady Fanny's sister and brother-in-law), Captain and Mrs. Middleton (long-time friends of Lord and Lady Ruskin) and Lady Fanny and her husband Baron Ruskin. Fanny had planned for everything...except for the discovery of a very dead body just before she, her husband and her guests were about to sit down to dinner. With fully scripted clues and recipe suggestions for a Regency meal this is the perfect chance for first-time mystery players to have an elegant yet mysterious evening!

Traditionally, it's always the butler who did it. It can't be the butler this time - he's the one who's dead! This puzzling mystery is set at an English Regency country manor.

Murder Mystery Reviews

This is a great one for beginners or for people who are a little shy (this is scripted even though it says it isn''t). The host definitely needs to help out a bit because the order is a bit confusing. We had a great time and it was definitely tricky enough that we had several opinions on "who dun it" at the end!
