Description

Murder Mystery party game for 8-12 players who dress up as a character. One of them is the murderer and the others must figure out who it is. These games were written to be fun and easy to play, as the story unfolds you just end up being your character without even trying. There is romance, mystery, secrets, everyone will laugh at the human comedy. You can lie, you can make accusations, you can follow the clues where they lead with no artificial breaks and only a few rules. Your party will be an absolute success because it’s so easy, the games do all the work for you.

The story:
In the medium sized town of Richmond, north of San Francisco, is a flourishing beatnik community. It’s not a big time city but they have gained notoriety for their poetry and art. Richmond has the typical big city intrigues of politics and the art business. Drugs, wild music, orgies, political scandals, reactionaries and revolutionaries, wild philosophers and even some bikers are all part of the scene. Throw into the mix characters with criminal backgrounds, frustrated writers, fake artists and fake beatniks and you have a recipe for the oldest crime known to man. Get out your bongos, berets, some Jazz, red wine, spaghetti, and garlic bread and you will set the mood for this titillating tale of coooool cat intrigue.

I started writing these games for my friends to play, and they all loved them. Everyone kept asking me when I would put them on the market for sale. Well, here they are for your playing enjoyment. Needless to say, these have all been play tested.
