It was fun! There was more prep-work than there would have been with a store-bought package, but it wasn't hard. I stuffed clues in envelopes, and since I was playing, I had to keep reminding myself not to read the clues! Also, you can probably cruise through the whole game in about 30 minutes if you really wanted to (I don't recommend that though; there's a lot of fun to be had throwing wild guesses and accusations around). We finished in about 2 hours (we broke character a bit during dinner and chatted as normal humans; it didn't hurt the game). We only had six people (me included). The game is definitely as good as you decide to make it! We dressed up, stayed in character (for the most part), and made it fun. The props are not absolutely necessary, they're more for show. Definitely make sure you have an open-minded bunch who are ready to do some very mild acting, and you'll have fun!
