"I hosted Death on the Gambia for a New Year's Eve party, and my guests loved it! It was our first time playing an interactive murder game, and they were all surprised at how much fun they had. They all marvelled at the complexity of the game, and they talked for quite some time, and are still talking about it several days later! Great game!"

Death on the Gambia
It is 1939 and across Europe countries are preparing for war. In the distant British colony of Gambia a smaller drama is about to unfold as the tramp riverboat Christabel starts a routine trip along the River Gambia...
Death on the Gambia lasts for about four hours and is suited to an evening. It is often played over a meal – a finger buffet if possible to allow guests to circulate and talk in private.
"Death on the Gambia was a fantastic night, I think you have to have the right mix of people but it was utterly brilliant! More, more!"
Tom Bates, Cheshire, United Kingdom

How Freeform Games Murder Mysteries Work
Death on the Gambia is unlike many murder mystery games. When the game starts, a murder has yet to be committed. However, by the end of the journey it is unlikely that everyone will survive!
Death on the Gambia is played just like a murder mystery game. You may be trying to solve the murder, but primarily you are (initially at least) concentrating on your own goals and objectives. Unlike most boxed murder mystery games, Death on the Gambia lets you decide how to achieve your goals and thwart your enemies.
"Thanks again for a great evenings entertainment, we played it [Death on the Gambia] whilst on holiday in Devon in a big renovated farmhouse with lots of wooden panelling which added to the 1930s feel of the evening. Also Fajitas for main course and crème brule for pudding worked well as people were free to mingle."

On the evening of the game the guests are met by the organizer, the deckhand of the old riverboat. They then receive their detailed backgrounds - including dark secrets, objectives and money. When everyone has arrived the Christabel casts off and starts the voyage along the River Gambia to Bathurst, Gambia's capital city. The fun then begins as everyone questions, bribes and blackmails each other. As the evening progresses they may even try to murder one another! Finally, the Christabel arrives in Bathurst and everyone finds out how they did, and what what secrets everyone else was concealing.
