After weeks of planning, hours of prep time, and days of building excitement, Saturday arrived and we were finally ready for our night of murder! The kit we bought from www.nightofmyster.com came with everything we needed, but there was still the printing, cutting, labelling, organizing and preparing of the information to make sure the party went off smoothly. Karlene spent Saturday making her house look fantastic by creating giant decorative dice, a Vegas skyline, and a poker table in her kitchen. I made 72 maimed sugar-cookie men, a double batch of cheesecake brownies and hot spinach and artichoke dip.
Due to a higher number of girls than guys, we didn't have enough girl characters to go around. The game came with a couple of girl/guy characters of which I took one and decided that I should probably have fun with it and be a boy. As I started drawing on thicker eyebrows and a goatee (complete with a soul patch) I started to make myself a little uncomfortable).
The party involved a murder mid-party (we made sure there was one extra character so that whoever was murdered wouldn't have to sit out for the night as everyone else enjoyed the game). The murder went fine (a sentence I never thought I would say) and only one person guessed the right murderer! It wasn't me, but I had a few people fairly convinced that it was me.
