Murder Mystery Party Games
A Fun Addition to Your Dinner Party.

Murder mystery party games are a great way to enhance your dinner party experience, and they are so easy to do. The simplest way is to purchase a mystery game that is instantly downloaded to your in box, there are so many murder game story lines to choose from. The hardest part is deciding on which one to get.

Downloadable Murder Mystery Games from 6 to 200 guests comes complete with instructions, host guides, guest list worksheets, character backgrounds, invitations etc, yes everything that you need to host the perfect exciting murder mystery party.

It really doesn't matter what you're celebrating, a birthday party, a Halloween party or a bachelor party. There are murder themes to suit your needs. The murder game can cater from 8 - 200 so check you have the right number of guests for the murder mystery story that you choose.

The first time I ever went to a murderous mystery night, it was at a corporate event. We all received our characters and outline of the story in the mail a few weeks earlier. This was so we all had time to find an appropriate party costume, party props and prepare to play our character..

There are mysteries to suit all ages, so you can use them for both kids Mystery Parties and adult parties. Don't worry if you haven't got time to wait for a boxed kit to arrive, they are usually delivered next business day, depending on where you get them from, however some are also down loadable.

Tips On Hosting
A Murder Mystery Game

  • Consider games with themes that suit your guests
  • Choose an appropriate game to suit the age range of your guests, both kids and adult versions are available. Also look at the breakdown of male to female guest and consider where the story line set, Chicago gangsters or girlie day spa?

  • Look for the more non scripted games
  • Ideally find a game which allows your guests to be creative and use their imagination. The more that they immense themselves into the game the more fun they and everyone else will have. And don't worry about the shy types, give them an appropriate role and before you know it they will be out of their shells joining in. One thing about murder mystery, if it's done well your guests can't help but to get into character.

  • Make sure the game is easy to host
  • Check out the instructions and needs of the game before you buy it. The story line needs to make sense to you and have clear instructions for you to follow. Some also have web sites for additional tips and ideas.

  • Keep the catering simple, the focus should be on the game
  • Murder mystery parties can be like dinner theater, but if you are catering yourself, don't make it too complicated. You want to enjoy being your own character and not worrying about how the food tastes. When I run a murder mystery night I usually get my guests to bring a plate of finger food each, and whatever they want to drink. Paper plates is also a good idea too, less worry and hassle for me and much easier to clean up. I have heard of people hosting a murder mystery at a private room in a restaurant. It may be more expensive, but takes away the hassle of food and clean up.

  • Allow plenty of time to plan the party
  • Ideally a month but no less than 2 weeks is recommended. Again, the more time you have to plan and know who is a definite party guest, the easier and stress free your party will be. Remember also that deepening on where your box game is coming from, you will need time for it to arrive and for you to get your invitations out. Often the invitations can be emailed which can save time. Check for this in the kit that you choose.

  • Make sure the venue is appropriate
  • I suppose it all depends on the number of guest and size of the game. obviously the larger the guest list the more space is needed. A small dinner party night can easily be held in most peoples homes, however 30-40 guests or more and your probably in need of a bigger venue. Try your local hotels, restaurants or club halls in your neighborhood. A lavish way to hold a mystery murder is to run one over the weekend. Check out local Bed and Breakfasts or boutique hotels who would be happy to cater for your specific needs. Great idea for a wedding, engagement or bachelor party celebration or for a very special birthday milestone event.

    "Thank you Katherine, love your site. I used your suggestions for my 4 year olds birthday party last week. 15 Kindergarden kids! My sister does face painting so we did that. I had a pass the parcel using nursery rhyme music I had a candy between each wrapping of paper which worked well. Finally I did some balloon games. They loved it. I especially liked your idea of having a story time at the end of the party, it worked well, my sister read the stories and I organized the parents as they arrived to pick up their kids. My little girl loved her special day and I think it was the games that made it work so well. Planning my sons 7th Birthday for next month now"

    Just a quick note to let you know that I followed your instructions for running party games at my sons birthday party and it went really well. I did 3 games and the most popular was the obstacle course. I had 10 boys ages 6-10 and once they had played with the course I had set out they then started to create their own ideas for obstacles and rearranged the course making it harder and harder. This 1 game kept them entertained for over an hour.
