The inspector 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.
Magistrate Cluesgo – The man responsible for solving the crime
Efficient in his own peculiar way, Magistrate Cluesgo has an unusual method of solving crimes – he involves everyone!
Will Barrow – The Ship’s quartermaster
Combining rugged pirate sex appeal with high morals and big boots ain’t easy – but Will pulls it off a treat! Add a dash of shy honesty and that sums him up perfectly!
Kelly Crooke – Captain Crooke’s wife (well, widow now!) and actress
A true beauty and with talent too! But with talent comes the diva demands – and there’s more than a little bit of the spoilt child syndrome in Kelly!
Beau Tox – Carpenter and surgeon
With talented hands and a morbid curiosity for human anatomy, Beau’s sideline as a surgeon is perfect – unlike his bedside manner!
Babs Windsor – Owner of The Ship’s Inn
A sassy, intelligent lady, Babs is matured like a fine wine and groomed to perfection.
Del-boy Windsor – Landlord of the ‘Ship’s Inn’
A real wheeler-dealer, Del-boy’s fingers are in many pies. He’s a likeable cockney character, a veritable cheeky chappie! On the downside, He’s a little hen-pecked and a hopeless businessman.
Scarlett O’Harem – A lady of the night (or day!)
A walking bill-board for her trade, Scarlett is dressed to make men gasp and women tut. She is the veritable “sex-on-legs”!
Additional characters in the 9 cast game:
Guy Faults – Master gunner
Despite his obsession with weaponry Guy is not an evil man. Well spoken, intelligent and with an elusive air about him, Guy is not a stereo-typical pirate!
Penny Farthing – Debt collector
Your reputation says you are as hard as ole boots; a lady not to be messed with!
Additional characters in the 11 cast game:
Tom-Tom Norris – The sailing master, aka the ship’s navigator
Being a little rotund, Tom-Tom favours the pirate stripes (vertical of course)! His best friend is a barrel of rum and his cheeks are rosy red from his long love affair with his ‘other woman’ as he fondly refers to his tipple!
Elizabeth Duck – Female pirate and Captain of the Red Ruby
A stunning combination of rugged beauty and daring bravery makes Elizabeth very successful!
Additional characters in the 13 cast game:
Ben Dover – Cabin boy
A pirate is all Ben has ever wanted to be. He’s eager, too eager in fact – his enthusiasm is a little over-powering!
Britney Spikes – Barmaid at The Ship’s Inn
Britney is everything a barmaid should be – busty, beautiful and an outrageous flirt! Oh, and her pulling power is fab – that’s pints, not punters!
