The inspector/facilitator role is essential for the game to work. He/she facilitates the entire evening.
The other characters can be taken from the audience and briefed before game play starts, OR you can select a group to play your suspects in advance of the night and give them time to get fluent in their roles and answers.
The rest of the guests are fully included in the game as they’ll be asking questions throughout the night.
Herr Shave – Lawyer tasked with solving the crime.
Efficient in his own peculiar way, Herr Shave has an unusual method of solving crimes – he involves everyone!
Rich Bustard – Son of Earl Ed Bustard.
An aristocratic country gentleman who enjoys the outdoor life. Fishing, hunting and horse riding are just some of the fine pursuits he enjoys.
Snoop Hedgehogg – Rapper.
Self-styled gangsta-poet, giving a voice to the homeys on the street.
François Hollandaise – The distinguished French chef and gastronome.
A servant in Earl Ed Bustard’s house but a master in the kitchen.
Mike Rochip – Computer nerd.
Dresses informally in a geeky T-shirt. To him formal wear means a long-sleeved and short-sleeved T-shirt at the same time!
Gary Vinegar – Bitter ex-footballer.
Unlike Mr. Lineker, he does not have a spotless reputation.
Ben Lomond – Scottish outdoor adventurer and TV personality.
Enjoys a hard man image as a survival expert. Dresses practically with lots of pockets for head torches and flares etc.
Carey Tray – Elderly housekeeper.
A distinguished servant to the household. Standards are very important to him and his collar is always crisp and perfectly white.
Don Calzone – Italian Mobster.
A man of mystery. Devilishly handsome, he could kill someone with his looks, or with the stiletto hidden in his moleskin coat.
Reverend Brin Stone – Welsh Priest.
A traditional man of the cloth, Reverend Brin Stone preaches fire and brimstone to one and all.
Doug Oles – An eminent archaeologist.
A veteran scientist and academic well respected in his field.
Reggie Krayfish – Cockney used car salesman.
Bit of a dodgy geezer. He’ll do you a good price on a new motor, or if you fancy a genuine Rolex he’s got a box of 40 in the van outside.
Val Halla – Nordic ski-instructor.
Here tonight straight from the slopes.
