Murder at the Manor Reviews

10 of us were off staying in a country house for the weekend, and Murder at the Manor was a highlight. I decided beforehand -who would suit which character, and everyone joined into the spirit, and dressed up superbly. Over long dinner, we played sleuth and criminal!Anon (2017)
There was 14 of us, we all had a great night. Everyone made a great effort with costumes. Good fun, also done it in aid of charity. So all monies raised will go to a good cause. 😊Shaz (2017)
First time and great fun. We used all 14 characters and all dressed up, a must! Top tip - to save time we found it easier to all sit round a table and listen to all questions and answers together to save a lot of time.David (2017)
10 of us played Murder at the Manor. We pulled names and character out of a hat two weeks prior to the event. Everyone made a fantastic effort with their costumes and we also created a crime scene. We all had a Chinese takeaway and the fun began. We all had a fantastic night with lots of laughter throughout the night.Anon (2017)
Brilliant game. We had 7 11 year olds and they really enjoyed it, staying in role all evening. The instructions were clear, and we will be able to play it again because we didn't use all the characters and the murder is selected on the night. Would highly recommend. Tracy (2017)
