Making a start and choosing a Murder mystery
by Rob Marks
I am an actor and and entertainer who is now looking to move into the area of hosting murder mystery events. I have already taken part in one, which was very successful. I now have a venue that is keen for me to organise these events. Having been impressed by your website, and contacted you over buying into murder mystery games for professional purposes, I wonder if you could recommend two good games that would accommodate up to twenty people and maybe a few more.
Maybe something set in the 20's or 30's and wouldn't be too difficult to arrange costumes; however, this wouldn't necessarily have to be the case. As I'm sure you can understand, making a start is often the most difficult thing to do.
Hi - and thanks for coming back. You're right, making a start is often the trickiest bit and I hope I can help.
A few games you might want to think about include:
The Auction which is set in the modern day, so very easy to costume for.
The Last Gasp which is Victorian - and relatively easy to costume for.
Of course, given the price of the games, you could try one or two out with your friends/family as research and then get the commercial licence for the one that you decide to use.
I hope that helps! Let us know how you get on.
