3.0 out of 5 stars A little underwhelming for a mystery dinner... September 22, 2008

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
This was the first time I'd played a Max Haines murder mystery game and it was a bit disappointing. I've played quite a few of the "How to Host a Murder Mystery" series and was used to the full-color character booklets, map of the crime scene, etc, so the b&w photocopy printouts of the character booklets and place cards in this game was a little disappointing. I could overlook it if the mystery turned out to be a good one but again, I was underwhelmed. Instead of having 2-3 things to Reveal and Conceal each round, Last Call only had one per round and they were very obviously written to be said in a certain order, so it took a lot of the fun and spontanaity out of the game for us. The worst thing is, because the murderer was allowed to lie about his whereabouts, etc, it was really hard to pin down whodunit (initially, the fact that the murderer already knew sounded interesting to me, but it doesn't really work). The mystery overall had a few odd and illogical plot holes in it too. Which is really disappointing because I'd heard this series was pretty good. Oh well, guess I'll stick to "How to Host a Murder Mystery" from now on...

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Setting, Terrible Mystery May 22, 2013

As the other reviewer has said, these "An Evening of Murder" games are really not very well made. I did some research on Max Haines and if he was willing to put his name to these games, I'd hate to think what his books are like. I thought the setting of an average, "dive" bar was something new and different, plus very easy to set up for in your home. There's also a diverse mix of characters and the basic plot hook allows for these very different personalities to come together. So it all looks like it would make a fun evening. However, the way the mystery is constructed, it doesn't work out that way. The CD (or sometimes cassette) simply introduces the story and there is the "sound of the murder." In many of these games, hearing the murder does little in the way of offering any valuable clues. And, as has also been stated, in other boxed mystery party games, your character has a few facts to reveal in each round, but in these games, there are four rounds. Each round, you have 1 thing to reveal and 1 answer to give. It's very scripted, and most of them are said in a particular order. I just don't see how this game could last more than say 2 hours tops. You could probably stretch it out, but why bother? And the solution to the mystery may make sense, but there are not enough clues to pin point the murderer. Yes, the murderer knows up front they did it and can lie, but if everyone is sticking to the script and there is only one person lying as much as they like, it would be easy to spot the killer, IMO. I agree, stick with "The How to Host a Murder" boxed games, they are about the best of the bunch. However, there are many online games that can be downloaded and the author's do a much better job, especially if you're looking for a real detective challenge.
