A Very Shakespearean Murder Reviews

Very good fun, the 'deal a murderer' is great as nobody knows whodunnit and you can play with odd numbers of guests (so many sets are couple-centric). The flipside though is that the pre-recorded evidence goes through ALL the possible suspects and becomes tedious when three or four aren't active. This can lead people to switch off a bit. But overall really good fun, a solid 4 stars. 30th birthday (2016)
