Murder at the Four Deuces Oct 2007

I just have to thank you for providing a fabulous evening for everyone in attendance!! Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday and I look forward to having a party every year. This year, I wanted to try a little something different, so I purchased your murder mystery game (after great feedback from other customers). It was the first murder mystery event for everyone, so we really did not know what to expect. I hosted a gambling/casino hour beforehand to be able to hand out nametags and info and explain the game to everyone. I played "host" and answered the questions of my guests of about 30 people. Everyone came dressed and looked fabulous. Everyone REALLY got into their parts, and the game became more about who can get the most money and finding murder weapons than those trying to solve the murder! I just sat back and laughed at all of the events taking place with these crazy people :D As I mentioned, this was a first murder mystery game for everyone, so there was still some confusion, so I had characters selling "fake" murder weapons to other characters. Poor U.S. Congressman Darrin Toosteal spent almost all of his money buying a plastic gun from Al Capone that he bought along as part of his costume, and not the actual "paper" murder weapons. Glenna Glibb played bartender and began "charging" guests for drinks to make money. I even had my best friend, who played Mary Toosteal, help me turn off lights in another room when the first "murder" was to take place. Can you believe she actually charged me $100.00?? She is supposed to be my friend! I served dinner upstairs in my dinning room and after dinner I handed out the clue sheets and told everyone they had 10 minutes to complete them and that I would tell them what to do next. Well I guess along the way, a few figured out that they were the clue sheets to the murder weapons and they did not wait 10 minutes, as soon as they were done, they went barrelling over each other to try to get downstairs to find the murder weapons. People were getting trampled by heels and pushed aside! Back downstairs, the murders and scheming continued! Cash and Cassandra Steal teamed up and actually hid their money in a cabinet, keeping only 20.00 on them, so that if they got murdered that people would not take all of their money, the other could still be able to find it! When a body was "discovered" these people were vultures, taking everything the murdered character had on them...and then some! My husband played Don "Big Jim" Ravioli and when he was murdered, people actually took all of his money, his cane, his diamond jewelry, and his hat. I could go on forever about all of the stuff that took place, it was SO MUCH FUN! Everyone had the best time and I am excited to try this again!

Thanks for sharing and the great mugs!

Cash and Cassandra were very smart indeed. I tell hosts that "bodies" get picked clean, but I don't think they grasp it. I also get people everyday that ask me what the purpose of the money and weapons are! There are those that don't get it, even after I try to explain it. To these I just say, "You'll have to trust me on this one." Some want to take these things out of the game! A game can be fun without them, but with them a game is awesome! At least that is my opinion.
