I've written two other reviews of games, and this is my third. I've (obviously) done three of these games, and this one wasn't the best. It was still exciting and fun to do, but the characters weren't as interesting as they were in the other books, and a lot of the clues were the same, meaning different people had the same clues in the same round. Still, it was hard to solve, and my friends and I still had a great time.

By M. Grubert on September 24, 2007
This is the first murder mystery we played and we enjoyed it a lot. The game consists of 4 acts/rounds and took a total of 4 hours to play. The included components (invitations, blueprint, booklets, clues, summaries) are plentiful and of high quality. Some of us players acted, others overacted, and some just read out aloud what the booklet said- all styles worked fine.
The only complaint I have is that there are several subplots and decoys making it hard to focus on the actual murder. With every character having lots of clues to read/act out every round there is so much information coming in that even with the help of scratchpads it was difficult to keep track of it. Also the authors really like puns and the "punny" character names are a bit much. In the end everybody had ideas of how parts of the murder were committed but it basically came down to guessing whodunit.
