MURDER MYSTERY NIGHTS AT BENEFICIAL ARTS.

IT'S A "WHODUNNIT" MURDER GAME ADAPTED FOR A SOCIAL GATHERING. IT IS SIMPLE TO ORGANISE, AND GREAT FUN TO PLAY

Our packs cater for groups from 20-100 players. You receive a package outlining a murder and the scene of the murder. The organiser nominates eight individuals to act as suspects. They each receive a name sticker and the "suspects brief". The other guests are the players. 

As budding detectives, the players question the suspects and along with the pictorial clues provided at half hour intervals, come to their conclusion as to "whodunnit"??

Our comprehensive value for money packs, include full instructions for the organisers, scene setting briefs, suspects briefs, clues, key player profiles and answer sheets. 

CHOOSE FROM THE FOLLOWING SCENARIOS:

St Valentines: A Valentines Day party; memories of the sixties are revived in a group of fifty-somethings; beatles' songs are played; secret messages in the national papers; a beautiful but troublesome girl collapses and dies.
