We used the game on NYE with adult and teens. It was fun and quite interactive. It gave a fun focus to the evening. There was a lot of preparation for the host.
Bought this game to play on NYE and it was a lot of fun! We had eight players of all age ranges and the game flowed well. When the victim was revealed it was hilarious. If you are looking for something interactive to do that gets everyone engaged then look no more!
This was a wonderful 14th birthday party ( on New Years 2017 )for our daughter. We actually had one girl nail the conclusion. It was fun and we all had lots of laughs. We had 8 girls it was perfect! Thanks!
My group of 12 had a blast with this game. Will be hosting another one soon.
