Is a Murder Mystery Game Right for YOUR Event?

Thinking about doing a murder mystery game but not sure if it will be a good fit for your event?

I love that my mystery games are used for all sorts of events from fundraisers to house parties to church events to … well, whatever!

Each year, the Mora Area Chamber of Commerce performs one of our murder mystery games.  Karen Amundson is their fearless leader, director, actor, stage manager, stage hand and jack of all trades.  Her creativity and imagination are inspiring with every adaptation she makes to our games. Her efforts combined with our mystery games make for one successful event after another, like this one:

“The murder mystery dinner this year was a HIT…

Especially when my main male character (after he “died”) came swankering out to the bar for a drink, as a woman with very large boobies with fantastic nipples in a very tight stretchy dress! All eyes were on him/her and, well, we pretty much lost it for a while! He had his wig on backwards, but it really worked on him/her!

Irish Themed Murder Mystery Game“Taking Life One Shot at at Time” or “The 225th Annual Meeting of the O’Gilvie Irish Whiskey Distillery” adapted from your “Next of Kin” … (Ogilvie is a small town near Mora where we live. – We’re ScandinavianIrish Murder Mystery Game around here, mostly. Not many Irish – but falling near St. Patrick’s Day – what could we do!??) We sold shots of Jameson – in special stainless steel shot glasses we had made – with O’Gilvie – Fine Irish Whiskey – printed on them.

I played Sister Coreen. It was so fun!

Thank you again, Susan.”

Here’s a testimonial for our murder mystery games from a church group that I just love:

“We have used two of your murder mystery games for church fundraisers. The last one was Bordello of the Damned (cast pictured). We tied this in with raising awareness of human trafficking. We donated a portion to Lutheran Social Services to help with their programs. We are a small rural church with lots of people who believe we can do almost any thing. Your games have been a big hit with everyone and a blast to perform. A neighboring church asked us to help them raise money for a local man whose restaurant burned down, so I came back to you for another murder mystery. We couldn’t decide which one to do so we bought four. We will use one this winter and one next summer for hopefully a good cause. Your games work so well for us, and our shows usually sell out. Thank you, Gene Gatewood, Svea Lutheran Church, Svea, MN”

Here’s a testimonial for our murder mystery games for a corporate event:

“We surprised the whole group with your Spies Like Us Team Building Mystery Game by covertly incorporating your characters into our meeting. They were prepared for a long boring lecture Photo: Team building murder mystery game victimdetailing a new product for our company from an ET Mars imposter. One of our supervisors (AKA Wanda Frohickey – one of the prime suspects in your murder mystery) jumped up and started yelling at the guest speaker saying he was not ET Mars. Everyone was stunned. They couldn’t believe she would stand up and yell at such an important representative of our company. The “real” ET Mars came out and called for security to escort the imposter from the building. Out I came in a security uniform and doing my best Barney Fife impersonation. People were laughing throughout the dinner and they still thought we actually had a new drug for the company in development. Overall, we had a great time and we really enjoyed the dinner. Thank you for the great script and making our dinner successful. Kind Regards, Daryl Dawson, Quincy, MA”

And last but definitely not least is a testimonial from a teenager for our Hollywood themed murder mystery game, Final Cut:

I just came back from one of the most enjoyably gratifying events of my life. Granted, I’ve only been alive for 16 years, but this is definitely one I will remember. At my high school, I am the Treasurer of our Thespian Society Chapter. We were very low in club funds so we decided to put on a Murder Mystery Dinner to raise money. I was the director and organizer of the event, and the materials that came with the “Final Cut” mystery game were such a big help. The student actors thoroughly enjoyed breaking from the standard “stage performance” and exploring interactive and improvisational theater. We had a caterer, raffles, place cards, sternos, everything to make the dinner legitimate and, in a way, classy. The audience absolutely loved the performance. EVERYONE in the high school cafeteria enjoyed themselves tremendously, and we were able to raise over $500. Thank you so much for the basis for an amazing evening. We hope to make this an annual event, and we will of course use you next time =) Sincerely, Maria Knieste and the Hills West Thespian Society, Dix Hill, NY”

I sell interactive party games (scavenger hunts, murder mystery games and kids’ games).  It’s how I make my living.  There are so many game sites out there, I have to make sure I create the best party games ever.  But how do you know they’re great?  Testimonials and reviews are a big help.

To help me make a decision when I’m looking to purchase something, I look at the reviews and testimonials on the website (and never trust any testimonial that doesn’t provide a full name) and I check out their Facebook, Pinterest, Yelp! and Google+ pages when they’re available.
