"I have run a murder mystery birthday party every year for my birthday from Freeform Games for the past 4 years. All of my friends love them and year after year when it comes to fall, and then to December (when my birthday is) they ask me every day if I have chosen the theme yet. Everyone really gets into it and tons of lies are spread. It is great because it really plunges everyone in to interact with one-another - no icebreaker needed! Alliances and secret meetings and evesdropping are some of my favorite parts. Thanks, freeformgames.com for making the best parties ever!"
Sarah Nelson, United States
"I purchased Snow Business to play over Christmas / New Year period. A group of us (18 in total) rented a chalet in Morzine and we played it there. I actually only got back yesterday. The game was brilliant, it went down really well, everybody enjoyed it... So thank you Mo and Steve it was excellent."
"I just wanted you to know Snow Business was a huge success! Everyone involved had a wonderful time! I have now done two of your murder mysteries and plan on working my way through all of them! I have already had several folks ask for another one. Overall my guests and my family had a blast and we will be doing it again soon!"
Christina Haley, Texas, United States
"Snow Business was our second game from Freeform Games – our son just LOVES them – and we will do it again, definitely!!
We didn\'t have much time to prepare because our son hadn't completely decided on whether or not to do a game this year.Even with our hurried time-frame, it was very easy to pull together!
The last game we did was Casino Fatale. We loved them both. Snow Business was on a much smaller scale and we had a lot more time to talk to the players, eat and generally have a great time. GREAT FUN!!"
Amy Nolte, United States
"I chose Snow Business because it was appropriate for the number of players, age appropriate, and because we were all gathered for a winter vacation. The setting was perfect!
It was so much fun! Even though one of my characters had to be gender-swapped, careful planning on my part ensured the appropriate amount of scandal that surprised many people at the end of the story!"
A Customer, United States
"We did some Snow Business in Chalet Flaubert, two days ago. We would have sent feedback earlier, but we were still discussing about the game! Everyone had great time, really enjoyed the subplots and delved into the characters. The story gave us the opportunity to create an impressive environment of the chalet, with stage props and music (We used the fifties era). Really great experience, though it was our first serious mystery party game. Thank you!"
Nicholas Nikolakopoulos, Greece
"We played Snow Business last night, and had a great time. The weather was unseasonally warm, and everyone turned up in their ski kit. Some people had never met each other; before but within minutes they were all in character. Lots of great photos to remember the night!"
Annie Higham, Germany

Snow Business is a dinner party murder mystery game for 10 to 12 guests and a host – download the free introductory pdf file.
In Snow Business, the stage is set for an innocent family gathering, with a few friends and strangers added to make the party go with a swing. However, not everyone is as they seem - some have dark secrets they need to keep hidden... and someone is the killer. You will be in the middle of the action and it will be up to you to wheel and deal with the other guests. Can you achieve your goals, keep your secrets hidden and survive Snow Business? It's up to you.
"Snow Business was GREAT!!!!
"I can't remember the last time I've had so much fun or laughed so hard."

Each winter, the Harrisons and the Perrys ski in the French Alps and always rent the Chalet Flaubert. They hire the whole chalet and bring both families and friends. The holidays are usually an opportunity to relax and unwind away from the pressures of normal life, but this year has been different. Jacqui and Mariella have been arguing, Lucy has sprained her wrist, snow has cut the chalet off - and tonight, real tragedy has struck. A few minutes ago, John Morgan was found dead at the foot of the attic steps, his neck broken at an unfortunate angle. Nobody can leave the chalet; and there is no phone or radio in here... Did John fall or was he pushed? Is there a murderer in Chalet Flaubert? Can you achieve your goals, keep your secrets hidden and survive Snow Business? It's up to you.
In Snow Business you will discover the following:

Snow Business 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.
"I love your games! They are easy to set up and do. I have tried other ones and they are inferior in my opinion. All of my Snow Business players had a wonderful time. I have already had several ask me when we are doing another one!"
Christina Haley, United States

Snow Business is unlike many murder mystery games. Although the game starts with a death, most of the characters have more important things to do than to investigate it. And the killing is not over – it is certain that not everyone will survive the remainder of the evening!
Snow Business 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, Snow Business 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, the Chalet Host, and welcomed to the chalet. They then receive their detailed backgrounds - including dark secrets, goals and items. The fun then begins as they form alliances, blackmail each other, steal items and maybe even resort to murder! 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.
Snow Business costs £20.00 (GB pounds). That works out at about US$30.48 at today's exchange rate, although the rate charged by your credit card may vary slightly.
