The Brie, the Bullet and the Black Cat Reviews

Very poorly written. Impossible to follow and seemingly impenetrable as to who the murderer is. Card dialogue poor and unhelpful.Anon (2017)
This was our rirst Murder Mystery. We played it on New Years Eve after younger grandchildren went to bed. Started just after 9pm and finished about 11.45pm. Ages ranged from 14 to 75. A really great evening. The Russian Countess arrived in furs and pearls and acted her part through supper before we had begun game. It was enjoyed by all and simple to organise. Mary (2017)
Good story and interesting characters; the structure of the game i find frustrating though. For those with little imagination this perhaps works - i.e. the scripted sections - but for those with imagination and who don't like the interruption and formulaic nature of how this game is designed, it will be frustrating unless it is re-worked and played differently. I think these games should be greated with two ways of playing; one in this existing way and another for those who prefer a free-form approach, with an intro, and then a paragraph on each character only and some clues of what and how to ask. The plodding nature of the way this game is designed, spoils the fun and means people just have their heads in the paperwork the whole time.Anon (2017)
We bought the game via Amazon and we received all required items for the guests BUT the CD which is imperative. Would any of you able to help us please? Otherwise the whole party is ruined... (Please contact the manufacturer Paul Lamond. We don't know who you are as you didn't buy the game from us - you'll need to email us and we can reply with their phone number but it should already be in the game box or search google for Paul Lamond. )Alienor (2016)
It was the first murder mystery I have played but we all thoroughly enjoyed it. It suited our group as we had 2 younger children who could still take part but not too much to read. Would recommend it, liked the twists and fake id'sDeb 2015 (2016)
