There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.
My wife loves mysteries. She is an avid agatha christie reader and love clue. We have played and enjoyed mysterium. I was looking into a murder mystery dinner but most of the reviews make those sound pretty lame. Any recommendations for a fun party game for 6-8 that involves a level of strategy/mystery?
There's Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Thames Murders & Other Cases.
Technically it plays up to 8.
Personally I think it plays better with a smaller group (like 4 max).
But you could look at it and see if you could figure out a way to do 8.
One option would be to break into smaller teams and either compete with each other on a given case, or do separate cases (there are a bunch in the box.) With some brainstorming, this might work.
