2 reviews for Which Guide Lied?

  1. Jane Ravenscroft (verified owner)

    We did this via Zoom with a group of 11 year olds during lockdown in Sydney, Australia. They totally loved it (including a boy who enjoyed hamming it up brilliantly). It took 1.5 hours, with a 10 min popcorn break after Round 2. They all want to do it again with a different theme.
    The only thing I would say is that the Patrol Leader really needs to have a clear idea of what is happening when, with this age group, so they can prompt speakers etc. It would be good if there could be a ”master” script with the Script Dialogue on it for the Patrol Leader so they know when the dialogue has finished and when they have to begin speaking again. I had cut and pasted the last sentence of each Scripted Dialogue into the Patrol Leader’s notes, so that she knew when it was her turn to speak. Just a suggestion, But the kids had a brilliant time. Just wish I’d recorded it.

How it works:

Don’t panic! There is no special acting required. Guests do not need to memorise any information, and everything they need to play their parts is provided in a handy booklet. The games are constructed so that everyone has to interact, and scripted dialogues are included to help break the ice and get everyone into character. Even total novices get into the swing of things quite quickly!

The game includes both sound files (MP3 with a download or CD with a boxed set) and a script for the inspector character who provides the setting, clues, and summaries for each round, as well as the final solution. This means as host you too can play and remain completely in the dark as to the culprit, or play the inspector yourself and invite an extra guest to the party!

Each “download and print at home” kit is provided as a zip file containing a set of PDF files for you to print at home, and a selection of MP3 files to use on the night.

Each dinner party game requires use of a printer and A4 paper (approx. 80 sheets for a 6 player kit – 240 sheets for a 20 player kit), envelopes so you can send out your invitations, and either a laptop or MP3 player (e.g. an ipod) to play the inspector MP3s; OR a CD burner so you can burn the MP3s onto a CD to run in an ordinary CD player.

When you order the game you’ll be sent a link to download the files you need.  The file will be a zip file.  This can be opened with a zip compatible program on your computer.  If you struggle to open zip files – we can email you the game directly over several emails instead – just contact us after purchase to arrange this.

Customise this game

This game can be customised to fit your event for an additional fee.

It’s hard to give “ball park” figures for what different customisations would cost however we’ve attempted to HERE.  Please do contact us for a free quote if you would like any customisations on your game before purchase.

Remember… if you just need 1 extra person, or 1 less person, why not have someone play the inspector role?

The inspector can usually be male or female as the “for real” inspector can simply invent a new name for themselves.

Some hosts prefer to play the inspector role as it means they can work on the catering while the round plays out amongst their guests.
