50's Murder Mystery

by Lynda

We played the game The Last Gasp and we all loved it! I had 23 guests and we are all still talking about it today.

I love how it worked. Each person received their profile and what to do during the 4 hour mystery and dinner.

I would love to find a 50's or 60's theme murder mystery game that works much the same way.

Do you have any suggestions?

My response:

Hi - I'm glad you enjoyed The Last Gasp, it's an enjoyable game.

There are a couple of games that you might enjoy set in the 50s/60s (well, ish - as you'll see below) but they are all for a smaller number than the 23 you had for The Last Gasp.

Dazzled to Death is set in 1948 at a glamorous cocktail party. So it's almost the 50s! Anyway it's for 12 to 15 guests, and a host. Click here to read more about Dazzled to Death.

The Karma Club is set in a 1960s hippy commune, and it's for 10 to 14 guests. Click here to learn more about The Karma Club.
