  Don’t tell the police but we had a murder at the Inn Saturday night! It was the second murder to occur here as it happened just a week before. It was horrifying!

At least he died with a smile on his face

 

But the dinner we had a half hour later was delicious.

Okay, you’ve probably figured out what I’m talking about. If not then we, along with some of our guests dressed up in our best Roaring 20s outfits and played a game of murder mystery. We did Murder at the Four Dueces from http://www.dinnerandamurder.com/ and let me tell you, it was as much fun as we have had in a long time. I think all of our participants would say the same thing. We did it a week before with some local friends too and it was just as fun then as it was the second time around

Lori was the host who put it all together and directed the game (while getting dinner ready at the same time!). Greg twice played the murder victim (poor thing) and it was up to everyone else to figure out who did the killing. Let me tell you, it was not easy to solve either. No one solved the murder the first time and only one got it right the second time but that didn’t matter. What mattered was the fun we had! Just take a look:

During the game, our host Lori handed out secret information to each player. This provided all the things characters knew that they could use to extort or trade with others to help them solve the case.

Our first group gets it's secret info. Time to plot strategy!

 

Immediately after dinner, the Inspector presents all the clues and evidence that has been acquired. Will it help solve the murder or mislead the sleuths?

Frank aka the Inspector, presents his information but alas it wasn't enough for him to solve it.

It was super-sleuth Katie who out inspected the Inspector.

So who was the killer? Well you’ll have to play to find out but you’ll have a great time doing it.
