What about our games?
Well… we design our murdering games so that everyone takes an equal role. At no point will someone have to die and sit out. In fact, we don’t even tell the murderer they are the murderer, so the plot is not reliant on someone having to keep a secret all night (which let’s face it, not all our friends are capable of doing!)
All of our games are plotted very carefully. Guests are ruled out on means, motive and opportunity – which means if you are all following the plot – you should be able to work out who the murderer is by the end. But beware – they aren’t that simple! There are plenty of red herrings to confuse!
Our games don’t expect too much of the guests (useful if you’re planning on drinking!) – which means the game is not difficult to play. This means they are great for first time hosts – but also great for those who’ve played before as you can embellish as much as you want. A simple play format doesn’t mean it’s a simple game – far from it! It’ll keep you guessing all the way through – but it does mean you aren’t going to have to get to wizard status in dungeons and dragons to be able to understand the game!
During the game there are specific lines to read out, a little like a script – but also statements that you can put into your own words so you have the opportunity to really ham things up if you want to. Each round runs in the same way so once one round is over, the next 2 rounds are identical and therefore easy to play.
No one has to play “host” – even the host can take part as a suspect as the inspector is provided on MP3 or CD – which means the solution can be kept entirely secret from everyone taking part – even if you bought it as a downloadable kit. But don’t worry – we do provide the script as a PDF or as a booklet too if you have someone who wants to play inspector!
We offer a sample booklet and the first MP3 from the inspector for every dinner party game – just visit the game pages and take a look for yourself. And don’t forget we’re always here for you and can answer all the questions you might have on all our games as we’ve designed every single one!
