Lei'd to Rest - A Murder Mystery Dinner Party by Freeform Games

  • This location is shown only to members

 

Lei'd to Rest is a dinner party murder mystery game for 6 to 12 guests and a host.

Join us in a thrilling evening of sun, sand, legend, lies, treachery and murder. You will be in the middle of the action and it will be up to you to wheel and deal with the other guests. Can you achieve your goals, keep your secrets hidden and survive Lei'd to Rest? You might even find the murderer while you are at it...

Just like we used to do before getting on Meetup, Bo, Q, and a few key others will welcome new and old players to enjoy a night of rip-roaring fun as each person tries to reach their goals and discover the murderer.

 

Food: Dinner will be buffet style - Appetizers. Each guest will be asked to bring an appetizer.

 

Costumes: Most, if not all, will be in costume.

 

Awards: Usually given to best costume and best player/detective.

 

Notes:

  • Please be sure that you can attend when accepting. It makes it real hard on the rest of the party when the murderer cancels...
  • We will be taking a waiting list in case we have cancellations (life does happen).
  • If you are on the waiting list, you might be invited anyway. Sometimes there is a last minute cancellation and if not you might enjoy meeting the people and observing some of what is going on ...

 

Also check out our upcoming page for a list of semi-planned future meetups...

 

Lastly, donations for buying future murder party games are always welcome... ;)

    This was my first such event and I'm afraid I botched my character which was central to the plot line. I knew I was being framed, but could come up with no effective way of dealing with the situation and I also had a major misconception about where an item that began the game in my possesion (but didn't end there) originally came from. I was suffering from lack of sleep due to my own poor decisions the night before, but I think my thespian skills would have proven inadequate even had I been as alert as I should have.
    I messed it up but would love to have another go...

    Thanks for the post Cindy.... If you plan to make the next meetup, make sure you vote for the game (under polls), so I run the one you like the most... :)

    Chris- you and I are in the same boat- will be out of town and not back in time- I too am excited about this and just sick to miss it- but the next one for sure!!! :)

    OK, we're full... The waiting list is open just in case, otherwise some of you have gotten your tentative part, and I will hopefully get the rest out in the next few hours! Thanks all...

    Sweet! Charlotte has now RSVP'd so we almost full. (Welcome Charlotte!). I have tweaked the casting and I will be sending everyone the tentative character info this weekend.....

    Even though I still have some spots open, I am expecting to solidify the initial group and start initial casting of the party later today or tomorrow. Stay tuned... :)

    May 16, 2012

  • Bo

    No problem Christopher. We'll catch you in a future one. I will be posting info for the next one in a couple of weeks...

    I wish I could come and bring the wife. Unfortunately I will be out of town and I am fairly sure I will not return in time that day. I am very excited about your group here. Thanks for the open invite! Looking forward to when I can attend!

    Yeah, I think I can get them to do that. I'll get Rachael to do it!

    May 14, 2012

  • Bo

    Thanks Q. Me too. I am just waiting for Greg or Rachael to RSVP and then we will be set and I will cast it and send out the character list and other cool stuff. Think you can help get one of them to RSVP?

    Hey Bo, Sophie and I are really looking forward to this and going to another one of your Murder Party's. We will try to be dressed correctly but we can wait for when the characters are released!

    No worries, Cindy. Hopefully we will catch you on the next one. Need to focus on this one first, but I'll be putting up more info on the next one in a couple of weeks.

    I want to be there sooo badly!... but I will be out of town for that whole week :(

    May 13, 2012

  • Bo

    BTW - Costume isn't required, but makes it more fun... ;)

    May 11, 2012

  • Bo

    After we finalize the guest list, I will send you recommendations for your character. Does that make sense.

    May 11, 2012

  • Chris A.

    What sort of costume is appropriate?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
