Numbers for dinner party murder mystery

Postby jackie » September 23rd, 2007, 1:06 pm

Hi,
My problem is that I've told a number of people that I'm hosting a Murder Mystery Dinner Party at end of oct. Thing is there are 18 people on the invite (7 of which are males) - the final figure could be 14 definites (with only 4 males) is there anyway I can buy a kit (don't' mind having to buy the extras) but to give out the main characters (including the murderer) and then if the others don't show up it won't ruin the party and if they do then all the better????

I know some challenge (the cooking part it the easy bit) - I usually host a dinner party of this size every year with some twist but don't' know the final numbers usually until the day before.

Any help very very much appreciated - - I've told them I'm doing it so have to go through it (based in Ireland so need to buy the kit asap)

cheers
Jackie

Hi Jackie,

If you purchase Immortal Murders, you would only need 4 male characters (the minimum males required in that game), Murder at the Four Deuces requires 5 males minimum. If you are having more than 10 females attending, you will need to buy an extra character packet to go with the game you choose.

Hope that helps!

Mary Lee,

Many thanks for the reply - I really like the team of the 4 deuces - spicy version can the same apply to that i.e. purchase the main and then additional - if so what additional do I need and how do I make sure that the murderer and the victim are in the core group?

You can do that, but it will require 5 male characters, instead of 4. If you think you are having 5 males, then go for it. The murderer and the victim are always in the main game, but no one at the party will know that. If you need anything additional, really depends on what you final female figure is. Anything over 10 will require and Extra Character Packet. All of our games have these.

If all you need is females, then you should go for the 4D Spicy All Female packet. It will play with either version of the Murder at the Four Deuces.

Here is the link for the Immediate download all female packet:

I wasn't sure which you were looking for. Hope this helps!

Thanks Mary Lee - - well I now have my final numbers. 16 in total (6 guys and 10 girls) so what combination do you think is best - I really would like to do the four deuces spicy (need to be a little conservative regarding a 'Madam' - i.e. no husbands having affairs etc so think the spicy one is the best). Do I buy Main pack and then one for female only? - -how do I know which characters it's OK to leave out? - - there is a possibility that I will have one extra female and one extra male which would bring the numbers to 7 guys and 11 girls - -hope the night isn't as hard to organize.
thanks for your patience and help
Jackie
