]I hosted my first murder mystery party this past weekend, it was a blast! I have been to murder mysery dinners in the past which were nothing like this. They were some people sitting around a table with a few scripted lines. Not nearly as fun as this!

To start, I chose Four deuces because I love all things done in the 20's! This game was perfect! I bought the box set, which came with everything I needed to put on the party. You really don't need to purchase anything but because I chose to go big, I decorated my house in a speakeasy with touch of gambling!! It was still light out, so I chose to dim my house by blackening out the windows. I used black tableclothes with gold fringes. I added a few tables with wine bottle center pieces, with feathers and pearls. I made my dining room a casino, complete with roulette and card games. We all lost lots of money at the casino ;) I turned the kitchen into a bar, with bathtub gin and a champagne tower! I chose to keep with the 1920's theme, everyone brought a food from the era. We had pigs in a blankets, ambrosia and pineapple upside down cake.

As far as the game itself, awesome! I was nervous because I had friends who didnt know each other there and a few who were shy. We were all a little unsure of how things should start, but after the first murder ( we had 3!) Everyone really got into character. It honestly just took off from there! My 14 yr old son also joined in by being the door greeter and the casino guy!

I really cannot say enough good things about this game. It was so much fun!! We already have plans for part deux :)

Thank you so much for an awesome night!
