the story

Cover for The Food is to Die For murder mystery party game

Pierre Baudelaire's restaurant, At the End of Maple, is THE restaurant in town – where anyone who's anyone is seen dining. Celebrities, politicians, philanthropists, foodies, they all wait and wait for than chance to get a table. Tonight is a special night – C.J. Charles, the most discerning and respected restaurant critic in the business, is dining here and will write a review.

However, tonight is marked by tragedy as Pierre has been found dead in a puddle of beet soup and blood. Who hated him enough to kill?

how The Food is to Die for works

In The Food is to Die For everyone has a complete character with background, friends and objectives.

Each guest decides how he or she will approach the murder - and the murderer must try to avoid detection.

As well as trying to solve the murder, all the characters have other goals and objectives. In The Food is to Die For, for example, there are people with hidden identities, wine thieves and someone is defrauding the restaurant accounts?

(Personally, I think interactive murder mystery games are the most satisfying - there's simply so much going on!)

The details

Instead of a formal dinner party, The Food is to Die For is better suited to a buffet meal or finger food.

Everyone needs to be able to talk quietly with each other - everyone (not just the gangsters!) needs to scheme and plot against each other,

The Food is to Die For needs a host, someone to organize the game.

They will read the entire game and will be available to answer questions.

It's a lot of fun being the host - you know what's going on and can watch your friends scheme and plot and be devious to one another.
