Voting is done via your guests' cellphones and results are calculated automatically for the host.  The host will be given a link to the results. This is a huge time saver and sets our games apart from most other mysteries that are done manually.
  • Before the solution is revealed guests can share their secrets, although the murderer cannot reveal who he/she is at this point..
  • The solution is revealed via our audio mp3 solution or optionally can be read by the detective.
  • Awards are presented.
