money

Hello! I have a quick question about Murder at the Four Deuces. Do I need to give Big Jim Ravioli and money, and if so, do I also give him money when he becomes Rhett Bumbler?

Usually you will. This is because most deceased guests get ransacked while they are laying there playing dead. You will not believe how scheming your friends are.

My suggestion: When you are giving them their name tag ask them if they still have their money.

How much money do I give each person? I read "equally to all" but how much exactly? :S

1 sheet of money cut up is usually what you will want to provide to each guest. But as I have stated that is really up to you as the host. If you are having a casino at your party, then it might be better to get more smaller demominations. You can purchase game money at walmart in the art section.

I devised ways my guests can earn more money:

1. I have chosen 1920s saying from your dictionary page and if I hear anyone say them, I'll give them the money. Good for one word only. For example, someone says "Rat" as in "He's a rat." and they get $50.

2. I have a bottle of "Moonshine" I created by taking a mason jar, filling it with water and printing a fake label for it. I just used the peal and stick labels I used for the name tags and made it look real. Then I dare people to take a shot. If they take it, they get $50. Of course they have to take the shot at the same time and not smell it.

Anyone have any other ideas?

Those are some great ideas. Something you could do is ask each person as they arrive to tell you a little about their character and if they do, meaning they actually read their character background, then give them an extra 20. If you see someone acting in a way that is really livening things up or getting people to participate more, then reward them. I would let people know ahead of the party that there will be monetary rewards for exceptional game play. Then you give them game money :wink:
