Murder mysteries for corporate events, private parties and team building

Our Murder Mysteries

Murder Mystery Types

Our murder mystery games suit many different groups and budgets. We’ve run them for corporate groups, government organisations, charities, private dinners, birthday celebrations, stag and hen dos, wedding receptions, schools and many others. Perfect for parties and corporate groups, they put you in the middle of an unfolding mystery. There are clues to solve, characters to play, secrets to unlock.

Unlike board games like Cluedo, our whodunits aren’t “one size fits all”. They come in many different shapes and sizes, to suit different groups. Tell us what you are looking for and we’ll offer whichever type of game provides the best fit.

They work nicely in many different kinds of venue – everything from a grand Scottish castle to a suburban home. They can fit in with other activities guests are involved in. We often run them as part of a team away day. They can be used to promote a new product or venue. And they are a popular choice for hen parties.

They usually last around 3 hours over a meal, but we also run them on their own and some are shorter. Many lend themselves well to getting into costume and fancy dress.

We now also have games you can play virtually online via Zoom, FaceTime and other video apps. Go here for more information about them and to see the great reviews they are getting. You can buy, download and run two of them yourselves or enquire here as to how we might run any of them for you.

Our Participative plots are designed to be played by a group all gathered together in the same space (i.e. not virtually). Our Highly Participative plots give everyone a character in the mystery. With our Fairly Participative plots, some guests have individual characters to play and everyone else has suspects to question, clues to consider, items of evidence to process.

Our Team Building Murder Mysteries are usually meant for a group all gathered together in the same space. We do have some plots which we can run for you as virtual team-building events.

Our Watch The Action plots are for social and company events in which groups want a murder mystery that is broken up into different sections/scenes with breaks in between.

Our Best Value plots offer options for those on a tight budget. We also have seasonal, bespoke and special Sherlock Holmes mysteries.

Our online virtual games are mainly intended for those wanting to take part in a whodunit via ZoomGoogle Meet and other similar apps.

“A double murder has been committed. One of these ears is a woman’s, small, finely formed, and pierced for an earring. The other is a man’s, sun-burned, discoloured, and also pierced for an earring. These two people are presumably dead.”
Sherlock Holmes, The Adventure of the Cardboard Box
