Murder On The Orient Express
A First World War Murder Mystery
Our new online virtual murder mystery game Murder in the Red Room is now available here. You can run it yourselves or we can run it for you.
Style: Highly Participative
In June 1914, a group of travellers is fleeing the onset of war in the Balkans. Archduke Ferdinand has just been assassinated in Sarajevo. Yugoslavia is not the place to be – and there are few routes out. The last chance for safety is the luxurious Orient Express, about to depart for Paris. Before they can board the train, one of the passengers falls to the ground. A murder has been committed!
We take up the story at Belgrade. Before the event, guests receive an invitation with information about which character they are playing, what they know and who else will be joining them. Every guest’s character is somehow caught up in the story. Our professional actors lead the action and assist in the solving of the mystery. Murder on the Orient Express is designed for small groups. Originally written to take place on a train, it works just as well somewhere that doesn’t move – like in a hotel or restaurant.
The last train from Sarajevo has arrived. Will you be catching it?
