I know over the years this gets brought up every now & then, but more questions than answers looking for one of the packaged games I found several companies with different formats of them. any suggestions out there of which companies you used & how you did your party? I am kind of confused as to the basic plan ones,, the characters get clue books & just read their clues out loud every halfhour/hour or so to the group? when mingling after that, is there anything else you do? talk to anyone? are there more hints in the books? or there are the bigger groups where there are a set group of players who all know the 'plan' then there are a couple more formats.... very confusing.
