Murder Mystery Party - Murder in the Silver Screen
Murder Mystery Party - Murder in the Silver Screen
Offered by lynne_111
Price: £12.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Way too long!, 13 Nov 2013
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
We played this game and it just went on for ages :( I'm not sure whether the company has really tested it but we were still playing after 12 o'clock and then we gave up as it wasn't even that good. Fun dressing up with friends etc but not a great game to be honest.

This review is from: Ticket to Ride (Toy)
This is a brilliant game for the whole family, mum dad and kids as its got some decent strategy but easy to play and good fun. Also teaches kids the layout of america geographically. Some good opportunities for 'stitching up' your opponents!

This review is from: Settlers of Catan (Toy)
This is a decent game with some strategy and learning elements for a growing family, but it didn't catch on in our house after the first couple of plays I'm afraid.

I quite enjoyed this book. It has a lot of interesting history running through it, together with a decent fast plot.

This series is great. We stumbled upon it by accident and then became big fans. I work in IT and our department is a bit like this.

My daughter liked this poster whilst the films were popular but I thought the graphics were a little discoloured when it arrived.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little overpriced, 13 Nov 2013
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This murder mystery game was reasonable fun for a family christmas afternoon but I thought it was a bit overpriced at 37 pounds for rather basic booklets.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad little murder mystery, 13 Nov 2013
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
We're avid mystery gamers and have played plenty but this one is just 'OK'. The main problem I thought was that you could not actually work out the murderer from the clues, but it was still good fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars Inappropriate for younger teens, 13 Nov 2013
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
I bought this game for my 14 year old daughter and her friends but it is not really suitable for younger teens as it is a little too adult and also they said it was a bit too complicated in parts.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like Cafe Del Mar, 13 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We discovered Cafe Del Mar whilst chilling out outside a cafe in a ski resort - we have several albums now - you cant go wrong if you're looking for some great background chillout music - wouldnt necessarily buy it to 'listen to' though.
