Just Desserts!

A game for 10 key players plus The Organiser

This game can be played by up to 40 people

Just Desserts! began as a little bakery thirty years ago, and has grown by leaps and bounds. They now have 30 different branches all over the country and the owner, TJ Ruby, is now a multi-millionaire.

With a house on the beach as well as a weekend retreat in the mountains, his family has been able to experience the finer things in life. Yes, this poor farmer’s son has really built an empire to be proud of.

It was a shock to everyone when he collapsed in his home office at the tender age of 52. A fatal heart attack was the culprit due in no small part to his insistence on testing every product sold from each of his thirty bakeries. Now his friends and family are together once again in his beach front home, for the reading of his will.

This dysfunctional family has had its quibbles, and this is going to be a trying time for everyone. Will they be able to stop bickering long enough to find out who is due to inherit what? But there is more than the distribution of several million bucks at stake here today. The discovery of the body of Lynn Oster, TJ’s live-in girlfriend, on the ground below her second floor bedroom balcony makes everyone a suspect…
