games include...

Caribbean Cruise: A wonderful nautical murder mystery theme for those that love the thought of sailing the seven seas. Pirates, ghosts, backstabbing and treasure make this a great story. People love to dress as sailors, high society passengers and pirates and your guests will look fabulous.

Tracy Gang 1920s: A fabulous 1920s gangster murder mystery party theme. People love to dress as gangsters, flapper girls, godfathers and hitmen. (This one is for up to 300 people!)

Hollywood Scandal: Our most popular murder mystery theme. People love to dress as the actor or character they have always dreamed of becoming. Some people even have a glamour night with guests walking the red carpet in their black tie finest.

Wild West: Our wild west murder mystery takes you back to your childhood days of playing Cowboys and Indians on the frontier. People really have a great time when they dress as a saloon girl, brave or outlaw.

Eighties Extermination: Are you a child of, or did you live through the 1980s? The 1980s was a time of heavy metal rock and awesome movies. If you want the party of the decade then Eighties Extermination is the murder mystery party for you!

Christmas Capers: Instead of the same old dull Christmas party where people eat snacks, drink cocktails and talks about work, you could have a murder mystery party to liven up the night. Your guests could dress as characters from the murder mystery party game, which takes place at Santa's workshop at the North Pole. Someone could portray Santa, while others dress as elves, toys, reindeer or snowmen.

Haunted Horrors: Love ghosts and ghouls? Then this is the murder mystery party for you. Set in Nosferatu's castle you will love the amazing costumes your friends arrive in. Glass of blood anyone?

Bogan Bride and the Billionaire: We all know a bogan (redneck) and why shouldn't they meet a billionaire and find love?

Hippie Homicide: Let's go back to the 1960s and Woodstock and enjoy a Hippie Homicide.

Serial Slaughter: Serial killers present a whole new world that is so far removed from the every day. Join this depraved gang of cannibals, kidnappers and poisoners as we take a walk through history with a serial killer or two.

how they work

These games are designed with 15 central characters, with the remaining characters based on the game size.

One of the central characters gets murdered and another is the murderer (but the murderer doesn't know that they are the murderer).

Clues are provided in three rounds - one following a quiz and another following a challenge.

Here's a detailed video on YouTube explaining how they work.
