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 Bobby Wood – The policeman responsible for solving the crime
Efficient in his own peculiar way, Inspector Bobby Wood has an unusual method of solving crimes – he involves everyone!
Joan Bollins – The bride to be
Once again it looks as though this diamond encrusted, glitzy star of stage and screen has failed in marriage.
Seymour Films – Film Director
Taking a short break from filming his latest blockbluster, Seymour is happy to direct any activity with or without his loud hailer.
Lucinda Marbles – Crazy Aunt
Dragged out of her retirement home for the weekend Lucinda is thoroughly enjoying herself, and the gin.
Mike Dupp – Sound FX coordinator
There’s no better way to say it: this man’s a geek! But the noises he can make with the oddest things are truly amazing!
Chloe Zonanoff – Model
With beautiful tan, and a smile for every camera, Chloe is the life and soul of any party, and stunning on the catwalk.
Tony Deff – Gondolier
Tony cuts a fantastic figure in his striped traditional gondolier’s shirt, waistcoat and tight trousers. Just don’t ask him to sing – you’ll regret it!
Additional characters in the 9 cast game:
Zoë Prano – Wedding Singer
With a voice like an angel, Zoë dresses to match, wearing floating dresses and a serene expression.
Aaron Ageestring – Guitarist
With long hair and glasses Aaron seems to be a bit behind the times in flares and sandals; but he plays well enough.
Additional characters in the 11 cast game:
Ivor Kit – Drummer
Enthusiastic about drums, Ivor rarely wears anything that could be considered appropriate at a wedding, and in is often found tapping out an irritating beat on any available surface.
Iona Kamara – Photographer
With a camera around her neck, and in a business suit, weddings (or murders for that matter) are all simply business for Iona.
Additional characters in the 12 suspect game:
Ben Aroundabit – The first of Joan Bollins’ many ex-husbands
In expensive tuxedo and waving currency at any passing waiter, it is easy to see how Ben managed to remarry so quickly.
Wanda Aroundabit – Ben’s wife and Personal Assistant
In smart business suit or fancy gown, Wanda is totally devoted to Ben and caters for his every whim.
