Death Before Dinner

Death Before Dinner

Here's a chance for you and your guests to play a classic whodunnit...full of twists and fun.

It had been planned as an intimate dinner party for eight. Lady Fanny's guest list was small, but all were members of society: Hon. and Mrs. Charles Ruskin (Lord and Lady Ruskin's son and daughter-in-law), The Duke and Duchess of Wollingford (Lady Fanny's sister and brother-in-law), Captain and Mrs. Middleton (long-time friends of Lord and Lady Ruskin) and Lady Fanny and her husband Baron Ruskin. Fanny had planned for everything...except for the discovery of a very dead body just before she, her husband and her guests were about to sit down to dinner.

With fully scripted clues and recipe suggestions for a Regency meal this is the perfect chance for first-time mystery players to have an elegant yet mysterious evening!

Traditionally, it's always the butler who did it. It can't be the butler this time...he's the one who's dead! This mystery, full of twists and turns, is set during a dinner party in an English Regency country manor.

  • Lady Fanny Ruskin - The Hostess
