"Well balanced and interesting!"
Kate (playtester), United Kingdom


"After years of watching us grown ups have lots of murder mystery fun, my teenage daughter was keen to have a party of her own.
We chose Murder on the Dance Floor because we loved the 50s theme and it looked best suited to her teen friends.
It was a fantastic success! Groups of friends from different social circles chatting and plotting away like they'd known each other for years.
We made sure everyone knew they could dress up as much or little as they wanted and some of the costumes were just fabulous.
We held it at the local church hall and the use of their kitchen and hatchway meant we could serve a simple menu diner-style. Hot dogs and sundaes were very popular.
As always with Freeform Games, we loved the adaptability of the game (so could easily deal with three no-shows).
The teens had an amazing time, they loved the stories, the intrigue and the mystery solving. We often struggled to stop them so we could move on.
And the Dance Off was an absolute highlight!
All in all, a huge success. Declared the 'best party ever' by my 14-year-old daughter and creating lifelong memories for her and her friends."
Clare Rogers, United States


"The evening was a huge success: I loved the theme and the whole game!"
Elaine (playtest host), United Kingdom


"Last night we ran Murder On The Dancefloor. This was our first time giving the character info at the party. From my point of view, I loved doing it. It made everything run smoother with changing roles. Most of my guests said they would have preferred to have it a few days in advance. There were also a few things that were missed because people didn't have the time to absorb everything. I am going back to giving the info in advance.
Allowing people time to read and absorb everything, threw off our timing. Many of our guests are very serious about knowing all they can about their roles. They wanted more than the half hour I allotted. The murder mystery part ended up going until well past midnight. The actual party lasted until about 4am, with people still debating things that happened. To me, that is a sign of success.
Our signature drink was Honey Bourbon Lemonade. It fit with the teens (the lemonade) and the fact that the story takes place in the US (the bourbon). My co-host winged putting it together. Tasting it as he went along until he thought it was right. We will be making it again soon.
Overall, Murder on the Dancefloor was a huge success. People were engaged debating the finer points long after the murder was revealed. The 1950s theme allows for fun party background music. The costumes are easy to do. One of my favorite parts of the evening was the dance off. Those who danced put on a great show for those of us who didn't.
I love that many of the larger mysteries we have done have a 'talent break'. We added our own hula contest when we did Lei'd To Rest. The movie portion of Halloween Lies was hysterical. When we finally get around to throwing Casino Fatale, we are thinking about adding our own talent show break.
I can't thank you enough for your wonderful mysteries. I have a great time running them. My guests look forward them. It is a fun time for all. "

"Exciting, lots to do, perfect!"

"Lots to do, very clear, very enjoyable! I liked the way everyone has a list of things to achieve."
Angela (playtester), United Kingdom


"Everything about the game was great!"
Julie (playtester), United Kingdom


"I have been doing these parties for almost 10 years now. I have really taken time to craft my style. I have used trial and error to figure out the best way to do the info packs to making the room absolutely amazing. Every game I find cardboard picture frames that match the theme, and then I take pic as everyone arrives. I then send someone to print them during the party. I hand these out at the end as my parting gift. This last party my room was AMAZING."
Susan Beckstead


"Very enjoyable, good pace, just the right amount to do."
Tracy (playtester), United Kingdom


"Very easy to understand, the info was clear: it was a very enjoyable and absorbing evening."
Phil (playtester), United Kingdom
