Murder Mystery Games

Want to host your own murder mystery party? Looking for a new way to entertain friends and family? Need a fun social activity to help work colleagues bond as a team? Then buy and download one of our brilliantly entertaining murder mystery games. People love them!

We have two kinds of games:

FOR (Face-to-Face or Remote) games which people can play either all in the same space or remotely via Zoom and other video conferencing apps. They usually last about 90 minutes and are reasonably simple to put together and run.

OFF (Only Face-to-Face) games which generally take place over a meal and last about 3-3½ hours. Usually, everyone has a character to play in them. Be a butler, boyfriend, mad aunt or merry widow as dark secrets unravel all around you. Question every suspect and put your detective skills to the test before deciding who to accuse at the end. These games have much more going on in them and so take longer to prepare. But the results are worth it!

We were one of the first companies to run murder mystery evenings professionally for corporate and private groups. By making these premium products available for you to buy, download and run yourselves, we can offer them to you at a fraction of their usual price.

The plots are in the form of PDF files or ZIP folders which you can download very soon after purchasing. No shipping costs. No waiting for delivery. Just documents to print out and put together or read online so everyone knows what to do: invites, character lists, character information, items of evidence and, of course, a solution which shows why only one person could possibly have committed the crime.

Over the years, we’ve had many, many happy customers. We hope you’ll be next. For more information, please click on the one-page descriptions and free downloadable introductions below. Or contact us here if you have any questions.
