Dying for a Good Time?

Are you and your friends sick of ordinary dinner party get togethers, or going out for drinks?

If the answer is yes, then perhaps it’s time you started shopping with us! We’ve just launched “Murder of the Month” – which is a unique summer offer for 2018 and is a new way to find and play a recommended murder mystery dinner party game for the first timer.

Between April and September we’ll be highlighting a “best seller” on Amazon to introduce customers to the best in murder mystery game entertainment. Each game will be suitable for a dinner party for 12 and for a limited time will be available for less than half price (but only on Amazon… yes I know this is annoying for our website users – but we have to do what is easiest for us – and right now – a special deal on Amazon is easier to achieve than tinkering with our website and putting it on here. Besides you get free shipping at Amazon if you’re a Prime member – something we can’t offer here as we don’t have the same volume deals with the Royal Mail).

Murder at Curst Mansion” is one of our most popular games. So we decided it should be the first kit to join our ‘Murder of the Month’ promotion. (That and we alreayd have stock of this kit in both the USA and the UK so it was the obvious kit to launch into the deal first as we’ve been too busy in the office this last quarter with custom orders and restocking our Amazon shops to get ready for this promotion! Best laid plans and all that…)

Anyway…Everyone loves the 1920s and as the decade has almost become synonymous with murder mysteries thanks the likes of Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers it makes sense to start our Murder of the Month promotions with a kit that sits nicely in the Golden Age of fiction.

Murder at Curst Mansion is very much written in the style of the Crime writing greats and it’s a great excuse for friends and family to channel their inner flapper.

As with all our kits – each box comes with full instructions, ideas for theming and everything you need to run the party: invitations and envelopes, booklets for each character and even includes some recipe suggestions.

Each kit is carefully content rated to ensure you get the right plot for your group and they are all designed so that even total novices can play.

Murder at Curst Mansion is a MATURE rated plot – meaning it’s not really suitable for children and tweenagers. But don’t despair – we will ensure some of our cleaner plots also many the promotion over the summer months.

Keep an eye on our facebook page for the monthly promotions – or if you want to find out first – sign up to our newsletter.

Flexible and fun!

We contacted Red-Herring-Games for a party for a special occasion. Why going to restaurants to eat is the preferred activity to mark milestones is beyond me and my friends.   The choice of mystery was obvious, looking at the options from New Zealand on the web Red Herring stuck out from the international options.  A quick look at the site and games showed subtlety as well a range of choices.  The numbers you could have for each evening was important,  Red Herring had scaling options a good range of scenarios but most importantly were Jo and team being flexible, responsive and helpful.

Thank you Red Herring Games for the marvellous 'Murder!  Cargo Connections?' event that you organised for us as part of Museums at Night at the Fishing Heritage Centre in Grimsby. The whole evening went so well and was brilliant fun.  I know from all the feedback that our visitors had a fantastic time. It was really good working with you and I have no doubt that we will do again in the not too distant future.

I would like to thank you and your colleague for helping contribute towards our successful conference last month.  Everyone really seemed to enjoy the evening and it was rewarding that so many delegates were able to participate in addition to the main "Actors".  Our conference evaluation froms included the following comments:
  • "Enjoyed the evening entertainment!"
  • The evening entertainment was great and the confusion made it great fun!"
With thanks and best wishes.

I had no idea what to expect before purchasing a ticket for Old, New, Borrowed, Blue, which was being staged at a nearby hotel, and feared it might involve taking part in some way. However thankfully for me no acting was necessary, just some amateur sleuthing. "Wedding guests" of which I was one, were called upon to move from room to room in the hotel in groups, questioning a number of possible murderers with the aim of solving the mystery of the dead bridegroom. The interviewees were really fun characters and gave us all some good laughs. Of course they all had motives and it was a case of identifying the shiftiest. The wedding theme was particularly good, as it fitted well with the venue, the buffet that was part of the evening (with a wedding cake in the middle) and the fact that everyone had been able to dress up to fit in without going to the trouble of fancy dress. I didn't think I had enough "evidence" to actually accuse anyone but later regretted not even writing down my first guess as it wouldn't have been too far off the mark. The evening was great fun and everyone seemed to enjoy it and take part. I would definitely recommend Old, New, Borrowed, Blue as good for getting even reluctant or first-time mystery party-goers involved.

What a cracking nights entertainment! We don't get out much nowadays with 2 kids and this was exactly what we were looking for in a good night out. Lots of fun with tongue firmly in cheek and everyone kept guessing whodunnit right to the very end. Would definitely attend another!!!!!
