40th party idea for clueless murder mystery goers

by Karen
(London)

Hi we are hosting a murder mystery for my 40th and are looking for a good whodunnit for 16 people (8 men and 8 women) who have never done an interactive murder mystery game before and so wondered what you would recommend.

We want something that is fun and interesting but not too complicated that we loose the plot if the champagne is flowing!

Thanks in advance

My response

If you have someone who will host your party, then I suggest one of the interactive murder mystery parties on this page.

Just pick one that you like the look of for the right number of guests.

All the games contain all the instructions you need - even if you're a complete beginner.

If the host also wants to play, then I suggest you check out the Mysteries-on-the-Net games, as they are a bit easier for the host to be involved in solving the murder as well.

I hope that helps!
