This is a unique, one-of-a-kind large event game for 50-150 guests! There are ten suspects (CEOs) in this game. You are to assign the 10 CEOs, who are all nominees for the first annual Midas Award by Fordes Magazine, with a team of up to 15 players each to play the role of the supporting friends, family, and colleagues of the CEO.

This game is designed for a large group event, particularly held in a ballroom where there will be a seated dinner / buffet. Each CEO will head a table of up to 15 additional players as supporting members seated with them.

Important: there is a minimum of 50 players for this game. The victim is not an assigned guest, as with most of our games.
