Would you attend a murder mystery party

There are about 8 of us in our group of friends. When we get together we always have our kids. I am thinking about hosting a murder mystery party. I think it would be fun.

  • We did a Murder Mystery Weekend at a B&B a few yrs ago.. It was a blast! It was about 12 Moms, no kids... I'm not sure how you would do it with kids but if you do then I say go for it!!

  • I went to one as a fund raiser for a Community College once. It was okay.

    I recently heard this radio program about people who have loved ones who were victims of violent crimes and murders. One of the big points that these people made was that murder is not entertainment. If you look at our culture, there is so much murder and violence in our media and our activities. It's pretty much impossible to fight it though. This idea of murder mystery dinners though was one of their major bones of contention.

    Hey, I'm not here to rain on your parade though. Like I said, I've been to one myself. This post just made me think of that radio broadcast though. I'll post a link if anyone is interested in it.
