the meal

We will occasionally have a question that we would like feedback on from those who have hosted their party. We would appreciate taking a moment to help us improve our games.

Is it necessary to have the guests sit down to a meal? Of course we'll provide food, but is the meal an integral part of the game itself?

Not at all, you can design the meal to your liking. I hosted mine with finger food and wandering.

The games traditional format starts with the dinner table but its not essential and most of the evening with have the guests circulating anyway

We have done it several ways. Finger foods, buffet and sit down meal. I will tell you that it is really hard to pull off a sit down meal and part without help. It is a lot of work to prep a meal, serve and clean up, all while hosting the party. I only made that mistake once! I am a huge fan of pot luck dinners now. Even if I am just doing apps I do pot luck.

Hi I was trying to figure out how I could do a meal or at least a fancy dinner and still have everyone walk around and mingle. I decided to go with the buffet style. Now for the food. I guess it should be a feast fit for a king. What does anyone recommend I have a cook already lined up. I am doing the Immortal Murders to raise money for the Wounded Worrier Project so everything has to be spectacular. :D
Thank you for this site is wonderful.
