What is a murder mystery party?

A murder mystery party is a type of event where the host chooses a theme and invites their guests to come dressed in costume according to their character description or the era. The attendees will all work together to solve a fictitious crime that has occured with the help of a lead detective and the guests are the suspects. Murder mystery parties are often compared to a live version of the popular boardgame Clue. This type of party can be hosted virtually on Zoom or in person at someone's home, an office, a restaurant, or private event space.

How many people can play?

All of our murder mystery parties are designed to be played by 4-20 people. ALL 20 roles have full motives and ANY of the characters could be the murderer.
You can also play with more than 20 players by adding guests as “detectives” who participate by asking questions each round and guessing who the killer is at the end.

How do you play?

Great question. You can read a thorough rundown of how to play or watch our webinar on how to prep, plan, and play here.

Can I play virtually via video chat?

You bet! We created a whole new set of rules and instructions to be able to play via video chat that are included in each game.

Can I host this myself or do I need to hire your host?

Our games are meant to be played at home or via Zoom (or other video chat apps) and self-hosted.
We do also offer our hosting party packages for groups that prefer a full-service murder mystery experience. You can learn more and submit a party request HERE.

How long does it take to play?

Our games take about 1-2 hours, depending on your group size.

How do I assign the murderer?

If you are playing in person we provide “Who Did It Slips” and you’re able to pull these cards from a hat to randomly assign the killer at the start of the game.
If you’re playing virtually, we created our own random assigner HERE! Each player will receive their assignment secretly by email.

Can you play more than once?

Absolutely! We’ve created all our games to be played over and over again, because the murderer always changes! Use your “Who Did It Slips” to assign a new murderer each time you play!

What ages are your mysteries appropriate for?

We recommend that most of our mysteries be played by people ages 13+. There is an age rating on each of our mystery game pages.
