It is 1985, and after losing market share to sweeter competitors, Koko-Cola has revised its classic formulation and named the new beverage Best Cola. The CEO, Martin McFly, is hosting a huge bash to celebrate the release and has invited the Who’s Who of the entertainment industry to attend the party.
With so many Yes Men fluttering around Mr. McFly, he’s blinded to the reality that he is one of the most dreadful men in the world. He’s stolen ideas, broken hearts, slashed egos, and even kidnapped the beloved pets of foes when it suited him.
Alas, you are one of the ‘80s icons that received an exclusive invitation to this event. Mr. McFly has wronged you in the past but needs your fame to help launch Best Cola. It should be interesting how this all plays out. This is where your story begins.

While not the same as doing it in real life (people spent less effort on their costumes, we couldn't share a meal) this was still very good on zoom. The added videos and other game parts were great and added variety, and the story and characters were good. I've recommended it to friends and would definitely do another one.

I'm am the president of my university's gaming club and we did this game. It was so much fun! We're thinking of maybe even making it an annual occurance!! Unknown on Feb 20th 2021
We had a lot of fun playing this! I would encourage people to use the pre-game as it was fun to email each other ahead of the event.
Thanks for building this game!
It was better than another night of Netflix during the pandemic!!

I bought this to celebrate my 30th virtually with friends and it was super fun! I split up the character packets into three parts (Pregame, Round 1, and Round 2) and emailed it off to friends and instructed them which part to open during game play. Someone created a playlist so when we were reading our new packets for rounds, it was fun to listen to music and do shots before getting back into character to continue.
It was super fun and easy to follow, although I would definitely advise looking through it all prior just to be sure you know what comes next. But the timeline and checklists made the flow easy to manage. I literally had everything I needed to make sure my friends and I had fun!
I highly recommend this for switching up virtual hangouts with friends! Can’t wait for our next murder mystery! Gigi on Jan 13th 2021
