As a team building venture, murder mystery games are far more accessible than escape rooms, accommodating more people and without the limitations of time and space forced on a company with the modern day quest rooms.
We take corporate bookings each month for team building and corporate entertainment. Our clients use murder mysteries as a way of entertaining multi-national groups as the murder mystery genre spans the cultural divide much easier than a standard theatre production, and corporate groups use murder mysteries for team building to give their staff groups a real hands on experience to encourage them to work as a team, and give them a shared experience they will talk about for weeks to come.
We’ve worked with big multi-national organisations to provide event experiences in the UK and abroad, either fully cast, or using their own team as the suspects. With the ability to create games in-house we’ve provided custom kits to include plots from within a client’s own industry and workforce, worked out how to run a murder mystery across continents over a conference call, and included some forensic hands on experience and SOCO suits to give a more authentic experience. We’ve written games for firms in the USA and even helped create a fundraising game for a charity who was hosting the Melbourne Cup during it’s tour of Australia.
We’ve been hired by councils, teaching conferences, shipping and logistics firms, telecommunication providers, some multi-national companies you would probably never have heard of, and a few we can’t mention by name that you would have! We’ve also worked with private schools and colleges looking for something educational to add to the student curriculum, and the general public looking for something special for a hen party, birthday, wedding and family get together.
So… if you’re looking at escape rooms as a team building idea for your friends, family or work colleagues and are struggling to find a way to make these work for you given the size of your group, or the time you have available, why not consider a murder mystery as an alternative experience. You can download a 6 player murder mystery game at a fraction of the cost of a typical lock in room and you will have between 1 ½ to 2 ½ hours of fun over a meal. ( Price comparison today has a lock in room at £89-£109 for 3-5 people for an hours entertainment, and a two week waiting list – a 6 player downloadable game is £19.99 and available instantly! )
