Psychiatrist Dr Stuart Brown says that nothing ‘lights up’ our brains like play. Playful people experience less stress and have better coping skills. At work, play speeds up learning, enhances productivity and increases job satisfaction; and at home, playing together can enhance bonding and communication. The Murder Mystery Guide Experience gives you a new way to play!

Real Murder Mystery Dinners


“I’ve had a brilliant time playing different characters in murder mystery parties over the years. It’s the type of experience you talk about for months afterwards and it’s always fun to see how different guests bring their personas to life.”


“It was a mud-fest of accusations and digging for juice! It was brilliant, because there are structured elements to it, but there’s also so much improvisation that happens, which makes it fun!”


“A murder mystery gives us an excuse to go over the top! While the success of the event depends on a good level of participation and crowd chemistry, these games are only too priceless when everything comes together!”
