good clean fun murder mystery party games

Murder mystery games that are great for conservative groups!

Good clean fun - playing The Final CurtainGood clean fun: The Final Curtain

what is a "good clean fun" game?

While none of the murder mystery party games are explicitly violent or contain swearing, quite a few of them have references to drugs and include a wide range of frankly dubious characters who might be blackmailing each other or having affairs.

Plus the games inevitably have a murder - sometimes more than one!

(Or in other words, there’s nothing that you wouldn’t expect to find in a typical episode of Inspector Morse.)

Murder mystery games are ideal for most open-minded people with a sense of humour - however some people are more conservative than others.

Luckily, some games are more suitable for those types of groups and don't have references to drugs and have fewer shady characters.

These are those games, and I call them "good clean fun" murder mystery party games.

The following games are ideal for more conservative groups as they are generally "cleaner" than some of the other games.

(Of course, I can't guarantee that someone won't find something in one of the games offensive - these games include murder after all. You know your guests and must use your own judgement.)

  • A Dead Man's Chest - pirates in the Caribbean! For 12 to 16 guests, plus one host.
  • The Final Curtain - Disaster strikes the Littledean Theatre Company in 1926. For 7 to 14 people.
  • Hollywood Lies - set at a party following an award ceremony in Tinseltown. For 16 to 32 guests, plus a host.
  • Way out West - set in Cactus Gulch in America's Wild West. Freeform Games have produced a kid's version of Way out West - which is the same as the adult version but with some of the racier elements removed. For 10-24 guests, plus the host.
