A Night to Remember (and Dismember)
January 20, 2007

Ive done 4 of the how to host a murder party games and found that An Affair to Dismember is probably a tie as the best with The Chicago Caper. Its plot line is devious and certainly unpredictable, but heaps of fun all the same. The one disadvantage of this episode is that costumes are imperitave to the plot, so make sure your guests are willing (and able) to obtain the right outfits. Another disadvantage is the amount of work and time it may take to set the scene for the crime - as the magical 'halloween' theme is rather detailed. The ending is wild and unbelievable, but so is the whole game - so if you are looking for a murder party with a neat finish and believable ending, try the Chicago Caper or Duke's Descent. If, however, you are looking for a fun, mysterious, light-hearted evening give this one a try. Be warned - even though this murder may seem childish due to the costumes etc, it is thick with sex, deceit and more - for ADULTS ONLY...
