Murder mystery party games for conservative groups

The following games are ideal for more conservative groups as they don't contain references to drugs and there are fewer shady characters than in 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.)

The Final Curtain - Disaster strikes the Littledean Theatre Company in 1926. For 7 to 14 people.

Way out West - A Wild West murder mystery game for 10 to 14 guests, plus one host.

fewer than 6 guests

The fewest number of guests in any of these murder mystery games is six - and with a host that makes seven.

The main reason for this is that the interactive groups really do need lots of players to work properly.

Also, uncovering the murderer is probably a lot easier when there are far fewer players involved!
