Put on your own mystery dinner theater: murder's on the menu, and everyone's a suspect in this grownup game for six to eight players. The game includes everything you need to serve up mystery, murder, and fun: a shopping list, menus, and recipes by cookbook author Sandra Gluck; eight party invitations and envelopes; place cards; secret clues; and, best of all, a murder mystery to solve. Just invite your friends to dress up and play the roles of the devious suspects (each with his or her own character booklet with roles and background info): Otto Von Schnapps, Tiny Bubbles, Papa Vito, Marilyn Merlot, Ralph Rottingrape, Hedy Shablee, Bonny Lass, and Bud Wizer. Serve up a meal or light snack, play the (included) cassette tape with its introduction, summary of events, and solution to the crime. Find out who killed California vineyard owner Barry Underwood, and why. --Rebecca Hughes

OK, I have to first admit that I *love* these kinds of party games. The whole idea of dressing up, hanging out with friends and trying to solve a mystery together while you eat delicious food is just about the most enjoyable way I can imagine to spend with 7 of my best friends. This game makes it so easy! You follow the instructions, hand out the notes to the players, and it's all set! A definite must-have for any fun-loving wine drinker! Perhaps the only drawback might be that some people just don't enjoy these sorts of play-acting games. So choose friends that really have fun with this.
