Experience an exciting night of Mystery, Blackmail, Intrigue & Treachery!
Boxed or downloaded Dinner and a Murder Mystery Games will provide you and your guests with a unique and memorable party experience that you won't find elsewhere. Whether you are hosting a dinner party, fund raiser, social event, theme night, or just getting together with friends; our games provide the perfect ice breaker. Friends and strangers alike will be talking, laughing and scheming like the best of friends in no time.
There are no scripts to read, with the exception of the Evidence Presentation and the Solution. The interactive mingle format allows more intimacy between your guests. You all become a part of the mystery, instead of feeling like you are just sitting around a table reading cards and playing a game. No dreaded party lulls! Be prepared to discover how cunning and, dare I say devious, your friends REALLY are!
Unlike scripted games, you and your guests are allowed to determine your own fate. How will you handle your enemies? How will you achieve your goals and desires? Your decisions will have consequences! Our parties are not just about solving the murder. You will find that you and your guests will all have their own agendas with skeltons in their closets... possibly even their backyards!
We designed our game kits to be easy for you to play and host; and yes you can host and play a character! The characters are well developed without being complicated. If you are new to hosting or participating in murder mystery games; I suggest reading our forum topic How to Host a Murder Mystery Party Game! It's much easier than you would think with our kits.
