8 players - Ideal Characters to use

Postby katepeters » Fri Jan 15, 2016 5:57 pm

I have 8 players plus servant. Can anyone tell me who are the ideal characters to choose from the cast for this game? Thanks.

You have critical characters that must be cast: Sir William Saville, Ariadne Price-Evans, Hugh Carlaw, Helen McKinnon, Alvy Spanhem and Shahfeez Merouf. The primary action takes place around them. Then you have secondary characters that should be cast, but the game will still be fun without them:Eva de Chalons, Lindsay Wilde, and Robert Tregarne.

The 10 tertiary characters purchased with the expansion are still fun, but not as necessary.

Since you only have 8 - start with the six critical characters and fill two in with the secondary characters.

Thanks Lee, that's a great answer! We generally recommend that with 8 you use the core 6 characters plus Lindsay and Eva, but depending on your gender balance you could put Robert in ahead of Eva if that fits your group better.

best,
