Baptist Church murder mystery

by Brian Bolt
(Calgary, Alberta, Canada)

I'm having a murder mystery in a baptist church in Calgary and was wondering whether there are murder mysteries on-line that can be used or what is your recommendation.

We hope to have about 30 to 100 people out to this mystery.

I don't want it to be a lot of work but I do understand that you get out what you put into it.

We would like it to be fun but some what challenging. Would you have any suggestions?

My response:

For church groups I generally recommend "good clean fun" games. These tend to have fewer dubious elements (affairs, particularly) that church groups may find offensive.

I've got a list of such games here: Good clean fun games.

However, if you check out that list, you'll see that there are no games for the numbers you're interested in.

In which case, I suggest something like the large-group version of Death in them thar hills which is suitable for church groups and caters for up over 100 guests.

(The reason Death in them thar hills doesn't feature on my Good Clean Fun page is that Mysteries-on-the-Net (publishers of Death in them thar hills) write a different kind of murder mystery than the games I normally write about.
