Whether looking for a team-building event or simply a social get-together, a murder mystery party is a great way to unwind with your colleagues.

Office murder mystery parties will give your teams something to bond over as they discuss their character's secrets. After the party, they will have enjoyed a shared creative experience they will remember for years after.

In these games, everyone has a role with objectives to achieve. They must talk and negotiate with other players to achieve their goals. These office murder parties are a great way of breaking down barriers and increasing communication. 

(And it's up to you how you cast them - you can give your most junior people the most senior roles if you wish.)

These games are downloadable and require an organiser to get the best from them.
