We had a blast playing this murder mystery game as a group of 8 adults. It's a little racy for anyone under 13--if it was a movie, i'd rate it PG for mild sexual innuendo. We were able to easily assemble makeshift costumes from leftover Halloween decor and everyone in our group really got into the spirit of the characters. The plot is not cookie cutter predictable but the game does a decent job of providing leading questions to ask, enough to have key plot points hammered home. I found the character names and bios to be clever and funny: Glumda, the wicked witch of depressed. Asthmadeus, Prince of Dimness. Pharaoh Aldrinktotat, egyptian mummy. We had an enjoyable 3-4 hrs eating dinner and playing this game, and we will purchase future murder mystery dinner parties based on this experience.

This was as fun as any other How To Host A Murder parties me & my wife have thrown. Particularly great for halloween! But when it says 'Affair' it means it. Every one slept w/ every one at one point. I felt good I hadn't brought this on over for the church adult halloween party!

The Host to Host a Murder-An Affair to Dismember was so much fun! My husband and I invited our friends over on the night before Halloween to give this a try. We had never done a murder mystery before and our friends are not exactly theatrical, but it worked out perfectly! It was the perfect way to celebrate Halloween since the characters were monsters and scary types!

Only two out of nine of us got it right, so it's definitely not easy to figure out, but it is possible!! We decorated our house in a spooky way with tons of candles and dim lighting. We created the mood as best we could. I would definitely recommend this product. We truly had a great time!

This being the second time i've played this game it was much better than the first. I think because everyone knew the gist of it. Saying that the couple of people who were new to it picked it up quickly. I would definately recommened this game to anyone who likes a bit of mystery, guessing and accusations. It's like a real life game of cluedo minus having to move around different rooms. The only down side is once you have played it you cant play it again, unless you have a really bad memory and forget who the 'murderer' actually is. I will definately be buying another How To Host a Murder just a different episode.

My husband and I purchased this game for a Halloween party this year. Neither of us had ever hosted a murder party before, although my husband had been to one in the past. No matter - it was very easy to host and a lot of fun! We didn't follow the suggested menu that is provided because I wanted to be able to enjoy the party and it sounded like there would be a lot of time spent in the kitchen while guests were here if we'd gone with the menu in the game.

For the most part everyone was able to keep up with the story pretty easily. The only thing we noticed was that when you're accusing someone, you kind of have to let everybody say their piece about a person before you let that person explain what's going on - otherwise you get little tidbits about characters that just never come up because there's never really a good time. Also - a word of caution - there is a LOT of sleeping around going on among the characters, so if that bothers you or your guests, you might want to think twice about this one!

But overall, it was great fun and everyone said they'd love to do it again, so I'm going to count this one as a win.

I got this murder mystery to run for Halloween. The theme was super fun, and there were a lot of laughs to be had.

This said it could be played with 6 players, and it could as some of the characters were side characters. However, you don't know this without reading ahead, and reading ahead loses all the fun.

The story was a little difficult to follow. There was alcohol, so at first I thought it was just that, but even the sober people said it was difficult.

However, it was a VERY amusing night, a good time for Halloween. I didn't try any of the recipes suggested. They were a bit complex for me, a novice cook, but sounded yummy.

Pros:
*Fun theme
*Goofy characters

Cons:
*Product said could be done with six, really needed eight
*Story was hard to follow
