I have a really amazing best friend.
She wrote an entire murder mystery, complete with character motivations and complex rules, and got 20 people to play it. It went kinda wonky in places, but it still worked well enough. We had fun. For future reference, every murder mystery needs one person who knows what’s going on and isn’t actually in the game (a la Mafia). And butterbeer is a good addition to any party. As long as you don’t quadruple the recipe (I will never, ever be able to finish the giant mass of brown sugar and butter that ended up as leftovers in my fridge).
So that was my weekend. And week. And month. And off the list it goes!
