Murder Mystery Reviews

I had crazy friends who were willing to dress up and play a character. I did not plan this but what happened was as I handed out the clues in each round the group stayed together and started talking about each other from their clues. This was actually fun because everyone heard each other's accusations...and would join in when their clues were similar. So they did not mingle around but instead hung at the "saloon" as a group. It took about 2 1/2 hours and we laughed so hard sometimes we could not talk. I had 13 people and it was manageable but I spent some time the day before getting all the clues in envelops- allow time for that. I also created name tags with the character name and the real name in the corner- a few people did not know each other. They learned quickly but the name tags helped in the beginning. Would highly recommend this murder mystery- the fun in in the process not neceassryly who did it.

A Wild Western Tragedy, was an absolute blast. Most of my guest had never done A murder mystery before and were nervous, but everyone came in costume and character and dove right in. The party lasted about 3.5 hrs and the time just few by. We threw in a little extra game in to help keep everyone in character. Everyone got five bills and pined them to their costume, if you caught anyone stepping out of character you took a bill. The person with the most money at the end of the night won a gift card. Great fun game, would absolutely recommend it!
