"Myself and friends had a blast playing The Karma Club. Everyone really enjoyed dressing up for the Hippie Theme. The game itself is nicely balanced and everyone has a number of very different goals which means that there are very strong interactions between all the players. An interesting element is that for some of the goals a larger group of players is required to cooperate to achieve the goal and since they all have other goals that are sometimes competing it makes for an interesting time. The final outcomes of the game were really funny and no-one managed to work out who the real murderer was."

"I wanted to host this one since The Karma Club came out. I was really excited about a 60s theme party. Everyone had a fun time, and it went great. The writing to this one is superb and, to everyone out there, Do this one!"
Desi Staifer, United States
"15 friends and I just did The Karma Club at the weekend, and had an absolute blast as usual (it's our 5th freeform, and fourth of yours!)"

"The Karma Club was the best one so far!"
Harriet Smith, United Kingdom
The Karma Club is set in the lodge of the Karma Club commune in Wells River, New Hampshire. The commune has been hosting a sending-off party for their guests, rock band Marmalade Skies.
Marmalade Skies had been invited to perform at a 3-day rock concert in Woodstock. Unfortunately their tour bus has broken down. Unable to make it to the concert, they are spending the weekend at the Karma Club commune before embarking on a 5-month U.S. tour.
The tour bus is now fixed and in the morning Marmalade Skies resume their tour. Tonight is the chance for one last party. Unfortunately, it has been marked by tragedy - Marvin Stank, Marmalade Skies's manager, has been found murdered!
Break out your bellbottom jeans, wide belts, tie-dyed and paisley shirts - and join us at The Karma Club!
The Karma Club lasts for about four hours and is suited to an evening. It is often played over a meal – a finger buffet if possible to allow guests to circulate and talk in private.
The free introductory pdf file contains an introduction to the game, a list of all the characters, a copy of the Wells River Gazette, the history of Marmalade Skies and of the Karma Club commune – plus details of how to buy the game.

The Karma Club is unlike many murder mystery games. Although the game starts with a murder, most of the characters have more important things to do than to investigate it. And the killing may not be over – it is unlikely that everyone will survive the remainder of the evening!
The Karma Club is played just like a murder mystery game. You may be trying to solve the murder, but primarily you are (initially at least) concentrating on your own goals and objectives. Unlike most boxed murder mystery games, The Karma Club lets you decide how to achieve your goals and thwart your enemies.
On the evening of the game the guests are met by the organizer, Deputy Kozlowski, and welcomed to the Karma Club commune. They then receive their detailed backgrounds - including dark secrets, objectives and money. The fun then begins as they form alliances, blackmail each other, steal items and maybe even try to murder one another! Along the way they may uncover some of the mysteries of The Karma Club. Was this fateful collision of Marmalade Skies and the Karma Club a coincidence, or karma? Will Marmalade Skies recover and secure new management before the tour kicks off tomorrow? Or will they crack and disband under the weight of this tragedy? Where are the master tapes from the Rough Ride Home sessions? Is the Karma Club really the haven of peaceful harmony it pretends to be? What are the true identities of local bank robbers "Bonnie & Clyde?" Depending on what the players choose to do, there are several different possible endings, but finally everyone finds out how they did, and what secrets everyone else was concealing.
Sometimes you have too many guests and you need more characters. So we've written a free extra character for each of our games that you can add in, and some of our customers have created their own characters for their parties and are kindly willing to share them.
Please note that we haven't tested these and they may not tie in exactly with our games.
IMPORTANT – if you've bought the game, you can download the files for these characters from the download page where you got your main game files. Contact us if you need the link and password to get back to that page.
The Karma Club costs £20.00 (GB pounds). That works out at about US$30.34 at today's exchange rate, although the rate charged by your credit card may vary slightly.
