Murder mystery games designed especially for you

We are here to help you plan the perfect murder mystery evening.

We write, design and create award winning murder mystery games in-house making us the ideal choice to help you with your murder mystery party planning.

If you're looking to be the host with the most, then we are the ones who can help you achieve your aim.

Each of our dinner party kits has been carefully crafted to involve all the guests, so there are never any spare parts at the party.  Each game is available as a downloadable kit, which means instant delivery to allow speedy party preparation - but if you don't like computers or printers - we also offer a printed kit service, where we will box up the kit you choose and send it directly to your door.

If you aren't sure what you're looking for - just get in touch with us - we understand all our games inside and out, and will definitely be able to help!

At Red Herring Games we like to make party planning as easy as possible, and while the murder mystery game plots might be difficult to solve, the games are very easy to host and run.

With each game we provide detailed instructions, there are invitations, character booklets (or scripts if you opt for a large group event), and ideas to make the most of your chosen theme.  We even include recipe suggestions.

If you want a murder mystery evening that will give your friends (or guests) the most fun they've had in years - then you can rest assured, we have what you're looking for.

Feel free to browse our site, using the menu above to find murder mystery games and party accessories.

Love to party?

We do too!

If you get stuck and don't know what to buy, then why not drop us a line?  We've played over half of the games in our catalogues ourselves and as they are all written in-house, we understand all of them completely and can usually answer any questions you might have.

We are not a "computer says no" company.  If you need something a little different we can usually accomodate it - charges will apply, as we have to buy biscuits and toilet roll just like everyone else, but if you need that extra personal touch - it's what we're here for.

    After many years of exemplary service M (the head of MI 6) is retiring. And what a bash it is! Friends, colleagues, and even criminal masterminds have put in an appearance. In fact, it would be safe to say that everyone who is anyone is there to see he gets a good send off. Well, everyone that is except Roger Damsels, 006 ¾, MI 6’s top secret agent. When...

  • Everyone hates Tuesday. It isn’t the start of the week, it isn’t in the middle, or on the downwards curve towards the weekend.  Most would have thought Tuesday was bad enough as it was, just being a Tuesday… without a murder enquiry underway during the morning coffee break as well! It seems Phil Armonic, one of the much loved junior office clerks at...

    In the quiet Scottish Island of Islayabout nothing ever happens. Life goes on, much as it has for countless years, springtime, tourist season, harvest, Hogmanay, Burns Night. Island life is tranquil and the islanders peaceable. At least they all thought they were. This afternoon the whisky baron of Glen Frick Whisky distillery, Toby Mory, was found in a...
