January 2007 Winner - Our party was a success!

Postby cvestal » January 12th, 2007, 2:08 pm

I just wanted to thank you for such a great game! This was our first murder mystery party, not only to host but to also play. It was perfect for our friends and family as many of them are theatrical and all have a quirky sense of humor!

I have to tell you how this started, as we were thinking of having a big party at the first of 2007 as we don't believe in doing the New Years Eve thing, and we found your game back in October. We started planning the Four Deuces game last fall with our friend who has been fighting panc. cancer for the last 9 months. I don't want it to sound tragic but it was such a great distraction for us all, figuring out who would be who, laughing about the characters, planning the decorations and party details. Just what he wanted, to get the attention off of him and his illness.

As he was getting weaker, we moved the game up to the 30th of December. He would have been the perfect Inspector, we made a special character that he knew he could play, Dr. Lief Mealone, Sleep Apnea Specialist. We were all so glad that he and his wife, Carrie Crooner Ravioli could attend after all.

As this planning went on it quickly grew to more than 50 friends and family that played. We had purchased your game and both set of extra characters packages, which all were taken. We had fun inventing the extra 12 characters, and all had no idea that they weren't part of the original story line, and enjoyed playing the game.

I wish I could submit to you more pictures than the 5 that are attached, so that you could see how involved all these people got into their parts. The more eccentric the character was, the more interesting they were in their costumes. We have set up a web site on:

with more than 90 pictures of this masterpiece!

Attached are the pictures that I thought would say alot about the night, but it was fun for all, and as they say, Laughter is the best medicine, and we hope to play another again in the future!

Thank you for your imagination;

Chris

I went and viewed your album. It was really neat. It really looks like you all really enjoyed yourselves. These really do make a good break away from things & I am sure that everyone will appreciate having this time together that was filled with laughter. Thank you for sharing.

A note to all people that enter. It is important to keep your email address up to date and add our domain 'dinnerandamurder.com' into your email providers safe list, to insure our messages get through to you.

Wow, we won!?!

Hi Mary;

I'm so sorry that I didn't get your message. My email is the same. So I don't know why it didn't go through.

We are so excited to try another game. And to let you know, we are adding a few more pictures to the murder mystery site as it is in memory of our friend Vince. The party was his last time he left the house, his memorial was the first of February.

But on a high note, I know that we'll be using the gift certificate in the future as I've heard that our friends say it was one of the best parties they have ever been to and that they are looking forward to being invited if we have another murder mystery party.

Thanks for choosing our entry!

I have emailed your certificate. Let me know if you have any problem getting it. I removed all personal information from your post. For your safety it is very important to never post personal information that can be viewed by anyone. It is also a good idea not to post your email on forums in the body of topics, otherwise you could get spam slammed.

I am so sorry to hear about Vince. I do remember the post and thought he looked to be having a good time in the party picts. I am sure he was happy to have so many good and caring friends with him when he needed them most.

I sent it out & I sent it to the correct address, as I just copy and pasted. Do you have a spam, bulk or junk folder? If so look there. You need to be sure to add our domain 'dinnerandamurder.com' your safe list in your email system. This will insure that our messages get through. If you do not find it in a bulk folder and you have added us to your safe list, then let me know & I will send it again.
