Would I be able to get some help?

by Benjamin McLennan
(Sydney NSW Australia)

I would like to create my own custom murder mystery game. I would like to know if you could help me as I have played a few games before and none of them seem to have any common denominators between them.

I would like to write my own custom game as I could then use in-jokes from my friends and family and use events in the past we have gone to as reference.

Would you be able to give me a template or help me with some tips about writing your own murder mystery as I cannot seem to find it anywhere.

My response:

There are a lot of different types of murder mystery party - and it can be confusing knowing where to start first.

If you want a proven system that will work, then I suggest you start with Inspector Jack's write your own murder mystery kit.
