"We had an absolute blast playing Davy Jones' Locker last night for my 18th birthday party, thanks so much for writing such a well plotted game. There were countless double crossings, attempted murders, restraints, plundering of unconscious bodies, and some very loyal defence of allies! However, some of the characters did become more prominent than they perhaps should have been from their character sheets, with one taking over the ship with the permission of the Captain, as well as possessing all the weapons in the game and all the treasure co-ordinates. I think murder mysteries bring out the megalomania in people!
Just a few tips on decor and music; I bought two large pirate flags to hang on the walls (despite it not actually being a pirate ship…) and also stuck the Tortuga Gazette up around the house. Music wise, we listened to a lot of 'tavern' music from RPGs (there are some good compilations on Youtube), and of course the Pirates of the Caribbean theme! I also had a video of waves lapping a shore on the television which added further atmosphere.
Again, thanks for such an excellent evening."

"We had a super Davy Jones' Locker evening! We have used other games before, but the consensus was that we like the creativity of the freeform format best. We will be using your games again."
Doug Phillips, Utah, United States


"Our first freeform, and compared to usual murder mystery games, Davy Jones' Locker worked really well. We had great fun – a mutiny, captain tied up and a nun who failed in a mock fight, collapsed to the floor and was licked 'awake' by the dog! "
Rowan Norrie, United Kingdom

"Davy Jones' Locker went well with a lot of intrigue. Our group loves pirates and most costumes were already in the closet. This was the first freeform game our group has done. They're ready for another."
Mark Plagens, United States

"I am well known for hosting murder mystery parties but I can 100% say that Davy Jones' Locker was the best one I have ever done! I only stumbled across this game after looking for a boat themed murder mystery for our boating holiday on the Norfolk Broads, but I definitely will be purchasing one of these freeform games again! Thank you for providing a great evening, loved by all!"

"We took our adult children (ages 20–26) and spouses on a houseboat trip for 4 days. Played the Davy Jones Locker game. IT WAS A HIT! They thoroughly enjoyed it. It was great to watch them play act and be kids again. I would recommend it to anyone – it really was great fun!"

"Now that we've tried a freeform game, we'll never host another type of mystery dinner party! Six months later, our guests are still talking about what a fantastic time they had with Davy Jones' Locker."

"Many thanks for all your help. My son's 18th birthday went down superbly with the help of Davy Jones' Locker. We had about 14 attempted murders, one marriage and countless double dealing. The characters were great and the plot intricately woven – some people kept their secrets better than others, but all had a fantastic time."
Debbie Myerscough, United Kingdom


"There was a great range of characters in Davy Jones' Locker, which made it easy for me to pick people to play them. Everyone was talking to everyone else, despite not having met them previously. "
A Customer, Australia


"Davy Jones' Locker was most of our group's second time doing a murder mystery. We had a clever hostess that made up new and interesting ways to help us achieve what we wanted. I know that this ended up very twisted in the end, but that is the fun of these types of games! Lots of laughs and many more to come with our next one. Thanks so much!"
Melanie Loree, United States

"We just played Davy Jones' Locker. We had a blast with this game. We have been playing the murder mystery games for a year now. We just finished all of another author's games. I have been looking for more games like hers. YOU FIT THE BILL. Thank you. Our group consists 4 couples and 2–5 teens. We have a murder a month. We loved Davy Jones' Locker. We had to play a couple of DUDS before we found you. I am so glad we kept looking. Don't stop writing them."
Nora Francis, United States


"As a group we've been playing Murder Mysteries for around 25 years now and have sampled most brands with numbers from 6 up to very large groups and sitting at a table playing in rounds to the free flow of Freeform games. Davy Jones' Locker is the first Freeform game we played (although our kids enjoyed the Pirate Island game a couple of years ago), and we loved it – plenty to do to keep everyone occupied all night and even the two newbies (who coincidentally were the two who didn't have English as a first language) were able to get right into it straight away, working on their goals. Architect Matt organised our holiday cottage into a galleon with the help of massive pictures of parts of the ship – and we ate fish n chips from the local Chippy. A perfect evening. Looking forward to the next."
Annemarie Johnson, UK


"Everyone really enjoyed Davy Jones' Locker – they commented that it was so different from other murder mysteries they've played, and it was much better than they were expecting after previous experiences with scripted games."
Jennifer Stout, United Kingdom

"We played Davy Jones' Locker last weekend and had a blast! This is the eighth game I've played, and with a variety of groups of people, and this was as much fun as ever! This was a new group of people and at first they seemed a bit overwhelmed, but once I pointed them toward the "tips for beginners" and encouraged them to use their ability cards, the game took off. Right away people were making deals and deceiving one another. No one wanted the boat to land (well, except the person who got thrown overboard, but that was at the last minute…)"
