Why Choose An Unscripted Game?
With a scripted game people take turn reading from a card & then try to figure out who committed a murder.
With an unscripted game, each guest gets a character background, which gives them the information they need to play a character. They will be able to get into the characters head. They will know what their past was like, who they are related to at the party, and who their friends and enemies are.
In a scripted game, the plot and action is much more constrained than in an unscripted game, in which characters have much more freedom. This freedom can translate into more varied, unpredictable, and interesting games.
