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.
Inspector Hal Owen – The policeman responsible for solving the crime
Efficient in his own peculiar way, Inspector Hal Owen has an unusual method of solving crimes – he involves everyone!
Count Ing – Vampire
With starched white collar, black suit and pointy teeth, Count Ing is a somewhat flamboyant mathematical genius with a penchant for jelly and peanut butter sandwiches.
Dee Composed – Skeleton
With her body on show day in, day out, Dee is forever worrying about her weight and has become a bit of a finicky eater and calorie counter.
Ed Less – Grim Reaper
With hooded cape and scythe ever to hand, you cannot miss Ed in a crowd, even if you might want to.
Flo Ting – Ghost
Ashen faced and always in white, Flo is a terror for drifting through parties or coming when she hasn’t been invited.
Frank Enstein – Monster
With green tinged skin and bolts ever to hand, Frank is a real hands-on sort of a guy who loves nothing better than fiddling with electrical or mechanical devices.
Cassie Spells – Witch
With black pointed hat, black cape and broomstick, Cassie is a stickler for cleanliness and loves nothing better than to wave her dust-busting wand around the place.
Additional characters in the 9 cast game:
Ben Tover – Hunchback
With dark ill fitting suits and terrible arthritis, Ben is almost doubled up. It is hardly surprising his hair has grown so long – he can never stand straight enough to look at his appearance in a mirror.
Iona Crypt – Mummy
With rolls of bandages ever to hand, Iona is somewhat accident prone, not helped in the slightest by the bandaging on her face which always manages to slip down in front of her eyes.
Additional characters in the 11 cast game:
Dr. Jack Ellenhyde – Mad Scientist
Jack is nothing less than an eccentric white coated doctor with a split personality – you just don’t want to get on the wrong side of him.
Carrie Onlivin – Zombie
Pasty faced and with bags under her eyes, Carrie is a bit of a night owl, rarely venturing forth in daylight hours.
Additional characters in the 13 cast game:
Ivor Wand – Wizard
With flowing beard, a cape and a pointed hat you might be forgiven for thinking Ivor Wand had magical powers – in actual fact he doesn’t, he just never bothers shaving.
Kat Noir – Black Cat
Able to make a black cat suit look purr-fectly divine at any time of day or night, Kat Noir loves nothing better than a night on the tiles.
