"This was my first attempt at a Murder Mystery game, and I came across Freeform Games from the good reviews.
We chose Bludgeoned on Broadway. And everyone (all new players) loved it.
Once everyone got comfortable with their characters it was an all-out blast to observe as the Director. Such a fun experience setting up props, and reading plot and characters. And easy to run even as a first-time host.
I cant wait until we plan another!!!"

"Just held Bludgeoned on Broadway for my 17th birthday, and it was fantastic! I was a bit concerned early on because two of my friends had dropped out; one due to illness and the other due to travel difficulties in the evening as snow was forecast (and it really did snow; a lot) There was some panicked phonecalls asking friends to swap roles but luckily people were happy enough to change. My two brothers stepped in as characters as well, and my sister was my 'assistant director.'
At the beginning I did an exercise where each character had to describe themselves to the rest of the group, which worked well as people figured out who they were supposed to like and who they didn't. We then got on with the game, with people picking it up a lot more quickly than I expected. As the game progressed there was a lot of running around rooms as the Director and Host to try and pickpocket, deliver the goods, listen in on conversations and speak to a growing line of people! So don't feel the Host role won't be as fun as being a character; it's also hilarious to hear the conversations your friends are having.
The most memorable parts of the evening were probably when there was a literal fight on the stairs between three people to destroy a piece of evidence, the detective being accused of being 'corrupt' and tied up after he arrested an innocent person for one of the crimes, and a literal witch hunt (loads of people cornering one person) of one of the characters accusing them of a crime!
It was also fairly amusing to watch how wrong everyone was at the dénouement at the end, and their shock at the correct answers being revealed. 'If I had ten more minutes I could have accused them and I would have been right!' was a common cry (as I sped the night up a bit as some parents were worried about the snow and came early; I wouldn't advise this. I did the game in around two and a quarter hours rather than three, and it would have given them more time to finish their goals had it been three hours).
The general consensus was that the game was awesome and there was a lot of questions about who would host the next one! Thanks Freeform Games for an awesome 17th! Pictures to be sent soon."

"Yesterday I hosted my first Murder Mystery, Bludgeoned on Broadway was nothing short of fantastic! Everyone really got into it and had a brilliant night. Alliances were formed against Communism, and deals were made to destroy items! People really used their imagination to complete their goals! Our murderer was very clever and made an alliance with another character and was the first to complete her goals, a prize was given at the end of the night for playing so well! We had an interview room for the detective that worked brilliantly and our theater bomber made a deal with Bruno to help one another to gain certain items. Our detective made his own goal to collect all nine scripts and used clever ideas to persuade people to use their ability cards for his own gain! Harold and Lana ended up against one another and turned against each other to try and win their goals. The game was so easy and so fun to carry out, we had to make some changes to characters as the snow made it hard for people to get there, but your amazing info sheet really helped me to solve the situation in such a short amount of time! Here are some pictures of the party as we had the best night ever! And I've been asked to host another "who'dunnit" for Christmas. Thank you so much as you really helped me to have a brilliant party to be remembered for some time!"

"Bludgeoned on Broadway was a wonderful game, all the guests had loads of fun! I liked that the host had a more involved role – I usually end up hosting instead of playing, so that is something that I appreciate. I love Freeform Games, I definitely recommend them to others!"
