Online Parties

With the arrival of 2020's coronavirus lockdown many murder mystery parties have been replaced with something new - online parties.

An online party - using Discord to play a murder mystery game

While online parties are not a full substitute for a face-to-face murder mystery party, they do have their advantages:

  • It's fairly easy to get a dozen or so people together to play a game online.
  • You can play across dfferent timezones which means you can invite people who wouldn't normally play.

They do have some challenges though:

  • Choosing a video chat system that everyone can use (Zoom and Discord are good).
  • Allowing plenty of time to get technical difficulties sorted out.
