My daughter is wanting to do a murder mystery for her 13th birthday party. Would Deception Murder in Hong Kong be a game that would fit the bill for that group?

Deception: Murder in Hong Kong is relatively short. You might ask her if she wants her party to be one game that is played a few times or a single, longer game that is played once.

There are other games where each person gets to play a role (and dress up as that role, if desired) and clues are revealed over the whole game. One such series is here:

Another is here:

It looks like several of the murder mystery party games are being sold on ebay for relatively low prices, which makes sense to me. I think these were among the first single-play games (as they were published well before Time Stories). After you have solved the mystery, the game isn't much good unless you want to hold onto it long enough to forget who did it -- or you can organize a play for a different group (in which you don't participate as one of the suspects).
