Keeping score in our murder mystery games

Every now and again we are asked if we have a way of assigning points to goals so that our guests can keep score.

We have never done that, mainly because in our experience is not necessary. We believe you can have as much fun in one of our games if you fail all of your goals, and making it competitive might undermine that. But, if you do want to try scoring one of our games, Steve describes on our blog how he would do it.
