Did you know that our large group murder mystery games are easy to adapt? Yup, they are.
I was inspired to write about this particular topic because of some feedback from two of my repeat customers. Clearly I’m not the only “chief imagination officer” ’round here!
Faye Boninu of Yorktown, VA, one of my repeat customers, emailed me to say, “I think these murder mystery games are so neat….and what I like is the ability to tailor them to a group, add a character or expand the characters part….in keeping with the central theme.”
Madeleine Espinoza of Grenada Hills, CA told me what she does to adapt and add to my murder mystery games. Her ideas were worth sharing.
She wrote, “Our school has done 4 of your murder mystery games and this will be our 5th year. I have one great suggestion. We have our drama club students learn dancing for each play. For your country and western mystery game, The Demise of the Downhome Dealers, we did line dancing and for your pirate mystery game, The Deadman’s Chest, we did the Virginia Reel. We give out raffle tickets for all those who participate in dancing and costumes etc. The crowd loves it and then we give out small prizes in the end.”
“Whenever we need a bit more time, we call people up for various things. For Deadman’s Chest we took the pirate speak you provided and asked people to come up and read them. People loved it – we also had the drama club teach the tango to our guests. We purchase music to set the mood and we have even had live bands. It is quite a production.”
“Oh just remember that all the things you ask the audience to do give them a raffle ticket. We give everyone one as they come in for being there to support the fundraiser. We also take all the people who got the correct answer and pull one best detective.”
“This year we may go with a Hollywood Bowl style setup where people can either bring dinner to their table or sit at a table with just munchies. The ticket will include a beverage and dessert…Some guests didn’t want to buy the more expensive dinner ticket so we thought this might work too.”
If you want more inspiration you should check out all the testimonials on our website. Any creative idea that I’ve posted from my customers is seriously impressive and inspiring. Use ’em.
I wanted to remind you that we also have fabulous kids’ games and fabulous scavenger hunt games. Just sayin’…
