Product Description

Amazon.com

Agatha Christie mysteries have nothing on this Decipher 9 game of international murder and intrigue. This now-famous role-playing game for adults can turn an average dinner party into dinner theater. Food isn't required, though, and costumes can add to the sense of play. All that is needed is one host and seven guests to become character-murder suspects on a train from Paris on June 13, 1940. The trip has already been completely organized with a host as guide, secret clues, guest invitations, player manuals, a cassette tape with murder details--even name tags and a diagram of the murder scene. Now that's travel planning! (Not recommended for children under 16) Lynne Sampson--

Product Description

Invite your guests to a lively evening of murder, mystery and intrigue. The long-running board game How to Host a Murder is back with new twists, turns and sudden stops! The Last Train from Paris, How to Host a Murder for 8 People takes place in June 1940 aboard a train leaving Paris. German troops are about to enter the city. Roads are a hopeless snarl; the trains are full with little space aboard them. Yet, to remain in the city will not be pleasant. Aboard a government train heading for the safety of southern France, a murder is discovered. The passengers (your guests) must decide who committed the crime. Certainly, the elegant refugees and the dramatic circumstances of their flight from Paris will provide the answer to this mystery. Bring the game to life with costumes, props and theatrical flair for a party everybody will be dying to attend!

If you've ever wanted to have a few friends over but worry that your party may, for whatever reason, fall flat, throwing a mystery party is a wonderful solution. People can chat and get to know one other while they play the game. And if you and your friends happen to be mystery lovers, all the better, because the "How to Host a Murder" games are marvelous fun. The game provides plenty of structure, making your party easy to plan. You can be as elaborate (costumes, multi-course meals) or as casual (jeans and pizza) as you like.
"The Last Train to Paris" is an excellent episode, particularly if you would like to throw an elegant party (characters include a princess and a spy). The mystery is top-notch; nobody guessed the murderer at the party I attended (and we were a group of avid mystery fans). I HIGHLY recommend this game for mystery lovers and adventurous hosts.

Ok, I'm going to explain in brief if you are not familiar with this game, but if you've done this before, skip down to the next paragraph. Basically, 4 males and 4 females (you can reverse roles, it isn't very restrictive) get together one night, and a murder have been committed (usually the imaginery host that invited the guests is killed.) Now the 8 players will try to figure out who done the horrible crime. Each person has a manual that gives out clues and with them you try to figure out who's the guilty one by conversation. Usually dinner is served and the whole game is actually pretty involved, mine takes about 4-5 hours.
Alright, enough ranting, lets discuss why you would want to buy this game. Again, if you have experienced this before, you know that this is a lot of fun, its a good way to spend a few hours with 7 of your friends. This is all about interactions, and so you get to see how your friends react when pressed and how well they can persuade others to believe their arguments. Game is very innovative, from costumes to preparing dinner to the story and the solution, I wouldn't say this game is educational, but it does help one to think deductively and inductively, it practices one to be observant and to ask questions. There is a lot to this game and this episode is one of my favorite. Treat yourself to a night of fun and intrigue, and as a suggestion to newcomers, try the first few episodes, they are relatively easy and quick to solve, helps you to get the hang of this game.

10 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Charles S. Holzheimer VINE VOICE on September 3, 2002
I won't go into great detail on the game structure other than to say it is great for parties and requires 8 people to play. We traditionally have a "Murder" each New Years Eve. These games are not really meant to be educational but using the leetle grey cells to follow the clues is a mentally challenging activity. Reusing an episode is really not feasible since the mystery is solved at the end and it doesn't change at all with replaying. I have reused these episodes with new sets of friends and just sit back and watch.
This adventure is situated on a train leaving Nazi occupied Paris. The characters are great and the mystery is actually one that can be solved. This is one of the few HTHAMs that gives you a fighting chance to solve the mystery.
If you are looking for a great evening of mystery and fun with friends, this is the game (and the episode) for you.

This game was lots of fun... I've actually played several titles from this series now, and I will say this one's content was the least risqué of any I've played, which was fortunate for the company involved. I enjoyed the solution, though arguably it would have been very difficult to deduce on your own. But being able to guess the murderer correctly is not a requisite for being able to have fun with these games.

We played this on New Year's Eve. The setting can be formal and that's the way we played it. Everyone was so into the game that we almost missed ringing in the new year at midnight. We kept going until 1:30 am - not bad for an over 65 crowd. The clues had everyone guessing until the very end. The guests can't wait until we do this again.

We had so much fun paying this game! It was great that there were no scripts - it allowed for more wiggle room. Even the people I thought would be not into the game performed their role well. I will warn you - the murderer is completely improbable...but nevertheless we had a great time. Highly recommended to others!

Our nuclear family reunion in Helen, Georgia featured the last train from Paris this year. We were able to incorporate the children as servers and cooks, so everyone felt they were participating. (8 adults, 5 children). It was very fun and convuluted enough to be challenging but yet not impossible. We all had a great time and would recommend it.

My husband and I hosted two murder mystery dinners with another company. We then played this one. Our guests and us found this game to be very detailed and complicated. Improvisation and the flow of regular discussion was difficult because you had to follow such a complicated WWII plot and know how to pronounce all the French names. The other games we've played (made by other companies) were very easy to play, conversation flowed naturally, and the plot wasn't so thick that you couldn't have fun. Also, this game series doesn't tell the muder that he/she is the murderer. The other games we played let the murder know bythe first round. Personally, I think it's easier to play if the murder at least knows at the beginning if he/she is the murderer.
