What is a murder mystery party?


A murder mystery is popular themed party game. At the start of the game, a scenario is set, characters are introduced and a "murder" is staged. Each player adopts a character, usually in fancy dress, and has to unearth clues about the murder. One (or sometimes more than one!) character is guilty and it is their job to cover up their guilt, whilst the others try to solve the mystery of whodunit.

A murder mystery dinner is exactly what it sounds like – a murder mystery game played over the course of a meal. Four courses are served between rounds of unravelling clues and through the duration of the meal guests try to work out who the murderer is.
