2.2 No Player Has a Complete Script of All Players' Dialogue
Players are NOT given a complete script of all the other player's dialogue. Boring! That would make the game like a play and would take away the excitement of all the twists and turns that each of our murder mystery games are famed for.
Instead, each player is given everything that they themselves need to say for that round and there is a list of speakers given in order within each section of the round. This list of speakers is shown in the left-hand column. Optional speakers are given in light grey italics so that the party can easily skip their lines if they are absent.
Players are also given an indication of what the previous player will say in grey italics above their dialogue; often the previous player will mention their character name or at least address the statement to a certain character.
As each player's Party Booklet has the same list of speakers in the left-hand column of each round, everyone can keep track of who is speaking when. If someone does miss their cue, everyone can gently nudge them!
