Your murder mystery party stories

Have you held a murder mystery party recently? Do you have photographs or stories to tell?

We want to know!

I love hearing about murder mystery parties – what made you laugh, what made you cry – and what you’d do differently next time. So if you have a story and you'd like to share it, please fill in the form below.

You can even upload a photo of your party – and you can get your friends to add their comments as well (a bit like a blog).

The only thing I would ask is that you don’t give away any of the game secrets – or who the murderer was!
