Airship Assassin - A Murder Mystery for Big Parties
“This is Captain Fredericks of the Graf Zeppelin. We shall shortly be concluding our New York to London transatlantic flight. I would hope to wish you to enjoy your trip, however we have had word from the secret service that we have a King and an Assassin on board.
The King is travelling incognito for his security. we do not know who the King is. The Assassin is also unknown to us. You must find and identify the assassin before our voyage is over.”
PICK A ROLE
Each guest at your party takes on a role, maybe Diamond Thief, Body Snatcher, Police Inspector, Hypnotist and more. Each card has certain powers and lets you look at another players card. In that way, each guest can work the room until they can identify the Assassin and the King. BUT! Players can swap cards – so who you thought was the Assassin might be someone else by the time the game ends!
HELPS NOT HINDERS THE PARTY
With Airship Assassin your guests can choose how much effort they want to put into playing. They can treat it seriously, or ignore it altogether.
It encourages guests to interact with each other and generally mingle.
The game will not suffer if people do not participate.
It won't get in the way of conversations - in fact the reverse - it encourages people to strike up conversation and banter.
