    Great Ice Breaker

    Posted by Marilyn on Dec 29th 2019

    We planned for an evening of fun over Christmas vacation when hosting a group of six adults. One of them our daughter's boyfriend from Australia. We wanted an ice-breaker game and got it in Fine Wine Good Friends. Which is not about good friends at all. It's about asking "personal" questions, dropping outrageous hints, acting audaciously and paying attention to detail. What fun!

    Tons of Fun

    Picked this for my staff Christmas party and we had a lot of fun! You definitely get out of these as much as you are willing to put in though. If people are willing to get into character and play it up, it's super fun. 4 stars because you have a lot of info dumped on you all at once at the start of the game, and it makes it a bit overwhelming at first to get into it. Once you get the hang of it though, and the wine loosens people up, it makes for an enjoyable evening.

    Tons of fun!

    We had a blast playing our characters. I agree with a previous review that if we had more info about our characters earlier it would have been helpful. We loved the story line and how easy it was to put together. Plus we always enjoy wine!

    Family dinner night

    Loved the twist at the end, was not expecting this. It would have been good if each character had more information about them selves before the game and not half way through, people could have played their role more Every one had a great time all the same with non-alcoholic drinks an option.

    OMG...It was so much fun

    I love this game. I ordered this game because I have always wanted to have a murder mystery party. I didn't know how it would turn out. I decided to turn my house into a winery to go with the concept and it was fun. All of my guest had a ball. They want to know when my next party. If you want to have a great time I would suggest you buy this.

    Wine Tasting Murder

    The game was so much fun, but I must warn those trying the various wines. Half of our group suffered terrible hang-overs the next day.

    So much fun

    Eight women played this game for a 33rd birthday party. Some people started out right away in their character, others took some time. Soon all were in the zone, acting, reacting, and having a ball. The wine tasting went well, and everyone loved getting their envelopes as the game progressed. Only one person actually wrote down the murderer, but the surprise of the evening is when another woman shot the murderer with a nerf gun. I won't say who because that would be a spoiler. We decorated the dining room with china and crystal and candlelight. The wine tasting room was decorated like a birthday party, pom poms, garlands, and big "33" numbers. The dance game was great!
