Easy To Adapt Murder Mystery Games

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.”

Will-Reading-Murder-Mystery-McQuade-1Madeleine 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’…

Reviews for our classroom activities/games

Kids' Detective Mystery Game/Scavenger Hunt - Download NowI just wanted to let you know that the Catch Me If You Can game was great. I used it as a reading/following directions activity for my 6th grade class. It was a wonderful classroom activity. Thanks, Sharon Sweeney, Valley Falls KS

These classroom games are great! I teach a homeschool crime science class and the CSI game will be perfect for classroom use. It covers everything we have been studying. Thanks! Marla Lahrman, St. Joseph MI

Kids Scavenger Hunt GameLast Friday I was able to break out the Kovert Kids Scavenger Hunt and the Crime Scene Investigation game! I used the Kovert Kids for my morning session with 1-3rd graders. They absolutely had a ball. The baby picture section was my favorite. That’s such a wonderful idea! Thank you so much. CSI was used in my afternoon session with my 4th-6th graders. They were so excited to be a part of something so interactive and fun. I want to thank you for such educational and fun classroom activities. Heather Corcoran, Kids College Coordinator, Mt. Tech, Butte, MT

Medieval Knights Game for KidsI used your Medieval game last week at our after school program. The kids (mostly boys in grades 4-6) absolutely LOVED it. They even wanted to work more on their shields the day after! Thanks! Jan Brooks, Program Director, NECC After School Connection, North East Community Center, Millerton, NY 12546

TESTIMONIALS:

We just had our annual Aunts/Cousins weekend and I wanted to tell you that my family had a great time with Operation Our Town Scavenger Hunt. I have to say thank you, thank you, thank you. I’ve received nothing but praise from family and we have some awesome photo keepsakes from our weekend. We change each year on who is responsible for the fun and games and the group taking it on for next year and worried they cannot stand up to this one. I gave them your website to check out for ideas. – Christy Frederick, Saranac MI

THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH FOR YOUR SCAVENGER HUNT MATERIALS! My boss and all the hunt participants were THRILLED with the entire thing – start to finish! We had the best time! I am still receiving praising e-mails and thank you cards from everyone a week later! I am so lucky to have played a part in bringing them a fresh, unique way of interacting with each other! I have and will recommend this to everyone I know! Thanks again, Aubrey Jones, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan
