A Team That Cares

It’s amazing how impassioned even the mildest staff members get when it comes to solving a mystery. By removing the pressure of daily expectations, you give your team the chance to reinvent how they relate to each other and to their work.

How do they work?

There are 2 types of Murder Mystery games that you can play:

1) Individual Character Games will bring out the super sleuth in everyone!
Normal Use: Team Building, Birthday Parties, Hen’s Nights, Christmas functions.

  •    Pre Allocated Character for every guest
  •    Secret individual instructions distributed by the host on arrival
  •    Countless opportunities to bribe, backstab and coerce.

Basically, your guests are working individually to find out who the Murderer is – this game is what most people think of, when they’re organising a Murder Mystery Party (it’s like the board game Cluedo)

2) Team Games are the ideal choice if you want a really fun Murder Mystery Event.
Normal Use: Team Building, Staff Social Functions, Fundraisers, Birthday Parties, Hen’s Nights.

  •    Easy to organize
  •    Interactive
  •    Packed with games and activities

In this game, there are no individual characters as such, rather your guests are put into teams at the start of the night (or you can pre-allocate them). The night is then run like a Trivia Night – there are three rounds of questions and activities, and the teams will win clues throughout those rounds that they will then use to work out who the Murderer is.

Which one should I choose?

Either work well!  Both Games have different themes that you can choose from (see below) and are very interactive.  It really comes down to your budget, and what your guests would like to do.

The Team Game is run over three rounds of questions & activities. Throughout those rounds, the teams are competing against each other, to win as many cluse as possible. The groups then use the clues they’ve obtained, to piece together the storyline and solve the Murder.

The Individual Game doesn’t have rounds of questions as such - everyone has their own individual character to play, and objectives to complete throughout the night, which will lead them to solving the murder by themselves. This game is probably more what people think of when they discuss having a Murder Mystery Night.

We run a lot of both types of games - it really comes down to what type of event you’re trying to run (if it’s more team building, then we would suggest the team game, if it’s purely a social gathering either would be fine).

How many Hosts do I need?

  1. 1x Host (up to 40 people) for the evening is a must. Your guests will have no trouble getting into character and immersing themselves in the plot, when they are greeted at the door by their flamboyant host. The game will proceed without you having to do anything but enjoy yourself, as the host takes charge of all elements of the evening’s game. 
  2. 2x Hosts (20 to 80 people). Your guests are treated to more of a “show”, as 2 highly skilled performers ensure the evening is fast paced and totally interactive. 
  3. 3x Hosts (30 to 120 people). This is for large functions where the Murder Mystery becomes more of a ‘stage’ show that everyone is involved in. Hiring 3 performers or more is a must to ensure the evening is a progressive, organised, hilarious, interactive success!
