4.0 out of 5 stars a good dinner party game 11 Jan 2010
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This murder mystery game made our usual New Years Eve dinner party go with a swing. The guests all dressed up for their part which adds to the fun, so make sure you send invites out early. The DVD was great and helped the plot along and set the 1960s tone. Our party were all around in the groovy 60s so understood who the characters were. This might be more difficult for a younger group.

4.0 out of 5 stars Such good fun! 6 April 2009
Durability: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Brilliant! what more can I say, we had such a laugh. the only slight downside is that some of the clues we had to read out had already been done on the dvd. apart from that - all good!

3.0 out of 5 stars My opinion on Murder Mystery Game 3 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
I do have a number of these games acquired over the years....we always enjoy the content etc but I do now feel that the DVD version makes things a little complicated as really the viisual part means that you have to get up from the table and watch Mr Mc Clue...i prefer the CD versions, less disruptive..!

I found it hard to follow and was actually expecting something different. I have done murder games before which did not involve having to use a DVD.

It was great fun but possibly for beginners,would be ideal for your first murder mystery game but you might 'get it' early if you are an old hand at these games!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Murder Mystery. 24 Feb 2011
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really enjoyed playing this. We had a party with 8 people and it worked really well. Everyone came dressed up, took part and really had fun! I was a bit worried that some guests might not have dressed up but everyone put effort in which really made it.

We also loved the theme of the 60s but the only thing I would say about this is some characters don't get as much dialogue as others. Overall, this game was good and I didn't manage to guess who the killer was!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for 6 players 20 Dec 2013
Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
The description is wrong. It is for 8 to 10 players so ordering in time for our dinner party of 6 was a complete waste. Thanks amazon for incorrectly describing your product.
