Do you love the thrill of solving a mystery? Are you looking for a unique and entertaining way to spend an evening with your friends or family? Then look no further than Murder Mystery Guide murder mystery dinners!

Murder mystery dinners have become increasingly popular in recent years, offering guests the chance to not only enjoy a delicious meal, but also participate in an interactive and engaging whodunit. These events typically involve a scripted plot, where guests are assigned roles as suspects or investigators. Throughout the night, clues are revealed and interactions between characters add to the suspense and excitement.

But what if you’re not comfortable acting out a role? Don’t worry, you can still fully immerse yourself in the experience without feeling like you have to be an actor. Many hosts provide the option for guests to simply observe and try to solve the mystery without actively participating.

One of the most appealing aspects of a murder mystery dinner is that it appeals to a wide range of people. Whether you’re looking for a unique date night, a fun outing with friends, or even a corporate team-building event, there’s something for everyone. And with so many different themes and settings available, you can choose one that best fits your interests and preferences.

But perhaps the biggest draw of these dinners is the opportunity to bond and connect with others. Working together to solve a mystery can create strong bonds between friends or family members, and even help colleagues improve their communication skills in a fun and relaxed setting.

Watch Greg Kriek’s ‘post-match’ interview below where he describes his first murder mystery dinner party experience.

“So, tonight was my first murder mystery experience. I must admit before the time I was pretty nervous, because I didn’t know how this was going to pan out, I didn’t know how professional this thing was going to be. But, I arrived, and I remember thinking of my character and that was the one instruction that I got – just remember the character and the secret that you need to reveal and the secret that you need to keep and the rest was awesome.

You do not have to be an actor to enjoy being part of a Murder Mystery Guide experience

I remember arriving and not knowing how this was going to turn out, but it was super cool – people arrived in character and it was a vibe instantly. I loved the preamble because every section of the evening was different. In the first section you don’t know what to expect, but once you start meeting people it just starts easing up.

Greg Kriek loved how the game allowed him to improvise

There was a cool structure and a great flow – by the time we hit the dinner table I think we already had nuggets of information about every character. So you already started developing in your mind who the suspects might be, who might be the murderer. And then by the time we hit the dinner table I freaking loved that! 

It was just a mud-fest of accusation and digging for juice. It was brilliant because you just improvise on the day and that’s what I love about this game is there are structured elements to it, but there’s also so much improvisation that happens, which makes it fun.

 I loved the group dynamic. In the beginning there were little jokes that came through and they recurred through the evening, so by the time we closed up it was beautiful – we’d become a group even though this was the first time we all met. I loved it man, it’s such a fun way of having a dinner party, on steroids, with improvisation – just beautiful moments… 

It’s probably the best way to break the ice with a group of people. I’d recommend this for corporates, for even private dinner parties – it’s a great way to have your own birthday party. I’m definitely going to do this again!”
