Hey Guys,

I played this game with my family a couple weeks ago and loved it, however I am about to play again during lunch today with coworkers, and was wanting clarification on a simple rule before going in.

Does the murderer have to choose a clue/means in front of them? or can they choose a clue/means in front of someone else?

I might be missing that rule somewhere. Thanks!

Instead of using him/her, we are now using them to represent him/her. If we only use him, someone will blame us for sexual discrimination. Therefore, nowadays people use "them" to represent him/her.

"Themselves" is clearest here. "Next, the Murder selects an evidence and means card in front of themselves."

Very good.
Thanks guys!

We played and it was a blast and much better that way. For some reason when I first read the rules, I just took "in front of themselves" as on the table and didn't realize the specificity of it.

Thanks again.

I really hate the Political Correctness forced upon by some miserable people that have nothing better to do than feel offended!
