Event short description

Red Herring Games Ltd logo
Hosted by Red Herring Games Ltd

The Great Depression is over, and tucked away in the leafy depths of the countryside, the residents of Merkister Hall, Brigadier Balderdash and his wife, Lotta, are just two of those who have achieved a very comfortable life. Keen to share their good fortune with others, the Balderdash’s regularly host sumptuous dinner parties which involve nothing but the best wines, fine cuisine and traditional after-dinner entertainment. The guests have all arrived and the party only lacks the butler, Leversham, who has been discovered dead in the billiard room, but who killed him?
