All over the world people are waking up to the possibilities that murder mystery games provide for fundraising.

Customers of ours are already raising three or even five figure sums and the reason for this is that we’re one of very few companies who release our event management scripts at a massive discount for domestic and fundraising users.

Costs of hiring in actors and a professional troop are usually too high to see any fundraising benefits – but a DIY script, means all the funds get funneled back into the charity, rather than another company’s profit margins.

Our customers feedback now and again on what brilliant nights they’ve had and say things like this:

The murder mystery was a fundraiser for our organization which raised over $11,000.

Couldn’t have done it without you.
Just wanted to let you know, we used one of your Murder Mysteries as a fundraiser for Our Church Missions teams, and it was a huge success. Everyone had a wonderful time, and we made some money along the way! I have had the packet of information for several years and felt this was what I was being called to use it for. Thank you so much for the quality product. (Fète Accompli).

I want to thank you for all your help in putting on our murder mystery event. The night was a great success with even the management and staff in the restaurant saying how good it was. We had 49 attend and all of us had great food and great fun. I’ve now got calls to put on another one! Jesus says “You can do nothing without me.” So true. And not only did we have a great night of fellowship and craic, we also raised £620 for our missions projects. Thank you for guiding me towards buying a really funny mystery and for your helpful advice for the night.

With over 100 different scripts suitable for fundraisers to choose from it’s sometimes quite difficult knowing where to start.

Fortunately we have written countless blogs on the subject, some helpful “how to” guides AND we have a 3 week intensive email plan which provides newbies with lots of hints and times and extra freebies – all you need to do is sign up HERE.

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!!!!!
