"Thank you for providing these games! This is the second one I've hosted from your site and, as before, everyone had a blast and was wanting to know when the next one would be. I am definitely a repeat customer! I started planning A Heroic Death the moment I heard about it in your email newsletter. The game was VERY well written with some wildly funny superhero cliches (I won't elaborate in case of spoilers!)."
Chris Laws, United States


"Hosted the A Heroic Death (Kids) Murder Mystery game last weekend at our chalet north of Toronto Canada. The temperature outside dropped to an incredible minus 30 Celsius, so it was a perfect time to stay inside (except for the Ice Queen). Our family of 4 hosted 2 other families so we had 6 Adults and 6 kids from the age of 9 to 12. The two invited families had never played a murder mystery game, but I knew they all secretly wanted to be superheroes, so A Heroic Death was perfect. I was pleasantly surprised by the effort they put into costumes by the group. We played the game in about 2.5 hours, and spent over an hour debriefing. Everybody loved it and kept talking about the various characters for hours afterwards, and even the majority of the next day. The newbies are all keen to do another game now that they understand how they work - so we will probably do something in the summer."

"I really did enjoy the A Heroic Death evening. It was great fun dressing up and getting into the spirit of things – thanks for letting us play test it!"
Peter (a playtester), United Kingdom


"A Heroic Death played out beautifully! I had a group that went all out. I had to give a little direction near the beginning, but they got the hang of it quickly. We are excited to try another game next month!"
Brandon Hicks, USA


"So glad we picked this story, we definitely got our money's worth! Everyone had a blast with A Heroic Death and was impressed with all the plot twists, character backstory and abilities. Can't wait to host another event!"
Debbie Ma, Canada


"I hosted A Heroic Death on Friday (my 40th birthday). I think this is the sixth of your games I've either hosted or been a guest at over the past seven years. It was interesting to compare to the others I've played - Death on the Gambia, Death in the Fast Lane, Casino Fatale, etc – and I applaud your writing/plotting as even now the stories feel different – not just a re-skinning. The superhero characters/archetypes in Heroic Death are very good for fancy dress although practically it is trickier to get a superhero costume than a costume for Casino Fatale (or maybe it's just that my wardrobe has more formal wear than capes and masks).
Overall everyone had a great evening, although buffet food was barely eaten – people were far too busy. Most people agreed afterwards that they could have done with a bit (or a lot) longer than the 3 hours we had. If your games were to have a 'complexity' rating this is one I would not rate as 'beginner' in my opinion. This isn't a bad thing at all as it means it is suitable for groups who have done games before and are familiar with the basic mechanics. Overall, I was very pleased with A Heroic Death – thanks again for a clever, witty and – most importantly – fun game!"
Andy Jenkinson, United Kingdom


"As always, we loved A Heroic Death!"
Andreah Mathews, United States


"We just threw out first Murder Mystery Party here as a birthday shindig! We did A Heroic Death and of course did it very spur of the moment, giving our participants only 2 days notice! Add to that that we did the party on a week/work/school night (we are a mixture of your professionals and graduate students at Virginia Tech). But boy, did our friends come through! We had a former D&D Dungeon Master playing our host and everyone came in full costume!!
We thoroughly enjoyed the game, the party, and the fellowship! We can't wait to play another sometime soon, just as soon as our hangovers wear off :)
Thanks so much!"
Molly Stedfast, USA


"A Heroic Death was fantastic – I really enjoyed it! There were snacks etc around but I was far too engrossed in the game! We then spent quite a while chatting about it afterwards. I'd certainly do another one in the future. The dressing up was a fun aspect as well."
Helen (a playtester), United Kingdom


"We love your games, and I actually just used A Heroic Death this past weekend as the final exam for my Spanish 4 students!! It was great! I didn't have time, of course, to translate all of their packets into Spanish, but they played out the whole evening with no English!! I was so proud of them! Tomorrow they will do the other half of the exam – writing an essay in Spanish about their character and accomplishments (or failures!).
I did this last year as well with A Dead Man's Chest. One of my students summed it up after the party as he said, "That was the coolest exam EVER!"
Kids are already asking me what the theme will be next year, haha! Thanks to your writers for a great evening!"
Melissa Midcap, United States


"For my husbands 40th birthday, I really wanted to celebrate big. A friend suggested looking at Freeform Games, as she has used you in the past. We are all huge geeks so I knew A Heroic Death was the one for us. I played the HOST and my husband was Captain Amazing! This game was so easy for first-time murder mystery players (and HOST) it all went so smooth and everyone really got into their characters. We played it as Captain Amazing!'s 40th capture of ReptoMan and it worked out so well! We decorated the house with streamers and banners, but had some of them 'falling down' as it is the day after a party. I set up a table with name tags and envelopes for each character and they could come to the HOST with any questions before the game started. I had finger foods and food in the crock-pot so people could still eat and move around. We played with all the characters plus 2 extras you can download. I would suggest if you are playing with more than 10 people, and you are not experienced with murder mysteries, to have a HOST's assistant. I was able to handle it with 14 people, but sometimes the player had to wait until I could help them. No One figured out who the murder was, and only a few 'side' missions were figured out. At the end when I revealed everything, everyone was rolling on the floor and playfully calling each other names, I take that as a great sign! This game was so much fun for everyone, and really smooth to play, I will purchase a Freeform game again, in fact, I can't wait to put another one together!"
Janae Martinez, United States


"Thanks for a very enjoyable game!"
Jane (a playtester), United Kingdom


"Yesterday was a blast! I just wanted to let you guys know that everyone LOVED A Heroic Death. Everyone was new to the world of murder mystery games so maybe I should have picked an easier plot for an all-first-timer-team but it was fantastic nonetheless!! All the characters arrived in wonderful costumes (all home-made and creative) and even though there was some confusion here and there, it was just superb!! Some characters got a little side-tracked and got so engaged in blackmailing and bargaining that at the end of the game they had no clue whatsoever who the killer might have been. :))) I hadn't laughed this much in a long time, so thank you!! "

"Have to say A Heroic Death was a great game and I really enjoyed the character. All in all much fun was had, thanks again!"
