Murder Mystery Dinner Party Ideas + Additions

Hosting one of our murder mystery dinners?  Here are some creative ideas to consider as fun additions to the party:

1. The human scavenger hunt: “One thing that helped us to get the crowd involved –especially that size–and to encourage people to mingle with each other and then our characters–was that we began with a “human scavenger hunt.” Several descriptions were included that pertained to the prime suspects to encourage the crowd to talk to them and get to know their characters before ‘Big Daddy’ made his opening speech to get the murder mystery started.” – Cherry Crayton, Garner, NC 

The Power of Facebook for Promoting Your Event

Next of Kin Murder Mystery GameI want to embrace Facebook.  I really, really, really do.  I try. I swear I do but, in truth I continue to resist it. It makes me cranky.  It’s a time suck.  I’m resentful of it.  Blah, blah, blah….

…And then I go and get an email from a customer who has leveraged the power Facebook of to promote his murder mystery dinner.  Dammit!

Best Party Games Ever – How Reviews Help

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. I check the Internet for any negative reviews. I want to know other people loved the service or product.  It’s helps me tremendously.

When I fall in love with a product, company or service, I make sure to hit that Facebook Like button, Tweet about ’em, recommend them on Google+ and if the site is visually interesting, I Pin ’em too.

What helps you make a decision to buy a product or service on the Internet.  What sends you away from a website?  Please comment!

For my beloved and appreciated fans who love my games, please do hit those Facebook Like buttons and Tweet buttons, etc. for my blog posts and on my game website!  As a small business owner,  I have to compete with the likes of which ain’t easy.  You truly help all small business like mine to succeed by Liking, Tweeting, Pinning and Google+-ing
