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.
