This game has a more "scripted" feel to it, in that the accusations and reply comments match up, character-to-character. So, it's got more of a feel of reading through a play than of random comments being tossed back and forth all night. For first-timers, this is an easy approach. Every guest we had that night was new to playing murder mystery games and they all loved the evening!
This particular game left a few loose ends that were never explained. Oh well, I guess that's true to life!
However, the enclosed CD really doesn't add very much to the game. It has one track that sets up the situation and lets you hear the murder. But the scene is already set up on the invitations and they make you think you are hearing evidence, but the sounds of the murder never come into play again.
Also, DON'T LOOK AT THE CHARACTER BOOKLETS BEFORE THE GAME. A friend and I were trying to decide what characters we wanted to be and were looking in the booklets at the background information. But, we found out who the murderer was because it told us on the first page of one character's book. It didn't make any difference in the game, as we were scripted to accuse other people, but it still ruined the surprise. So be aware that the booklets contain sensitive information. The solution, however, is sealed.
Finally, this game can only be used once. There is only one solution, so unless you don't mind playing it again knowing the answer, you can only use it one time.
Overall, this was a great night! Find people that aren't afraid to get a little crazy, and you'll have fun! I played this with a group of theater people and we really got into it. Highly recommended!
The game went well, although it was just barely two hours long, and that was with taking short breaks between scenes and with people embellishing a bit on their information. But the story is well written and all the parts are interesting. Everyone there agreed that 8 people was a perfect number, and we liked that the murderer DOES know that they're the murderer.
All in all a great time, that's pretty simple for a first-timer. If you're hosting this party, my one suggestion is to make sure you have wine charms on the wine glasses- it's not specifically mentioned in the instructions and it becomes kinda important to the plot. Also, we took a break inbetween scenes during which everyone read their information for the next scene. That way they weren't just reading the info and they could feel more comfortable in their characters.
I'm definitely planning on buying the other game by this company.

This is a great murder mystery. The scripts for the characters are good but only one major problem. The character books are written with the pronoun YOU instead of I. Read morePublished on August 27, 2009 by Linda Cruizer
