What is a murder mystery game?
-During a murder mystery game, the dinner party guests take on characters who are suspects in a murder. The game is split into four rounds; the first three are ‘conversations’ between the suspects- each player has a paragraph of speech to read out that reveals clues. In the fourth ‘closing round’ each player reveals their true motive and the murderer is revealed.
Are there set characters/number of players, or can I change them?
-Our murder mysteries are based on our acting scripts used for live events. Therefore, there are a set number of players. However, we appreciate that there may be an odd number of guests at your dinner party or not an equal number of guests the same gender. We offer a customising package, where characters can be added or removed and the gender of characters changed. There is an additional cost for this service, but we feel this is great value for money. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
Do I have to get my guests to ‘act’?
-Not at all! Being the artsy types here at Murder Mysterious, we always enjoy acting, but we appreciate that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. You can if you wish, really get into the swing of things and be a character for the whole evening, but if you prefer to just read out the speeches as yourself, then the game will still work just as well.
How do I get the game pack?
-Once purchased, you can instantly download the pack as a PDF. This one download contains all you need to play the game.
Will I have to print off the entire pack?
