  • The Jolly Rogered!

    Avast me hearties!

    Diamond White, a 17th century galleon belonging to Captain Crooke, has just returned from its adventures, laden with precious treasures.

    Celebrations, however, have been sadly cut short. When the Captain’s wife returned to their room at the Ship’s Inn she found her husband had been stabbed through the heart with his very own hook! The hook replaced the Captain’s right hand, lost following an accident involving the ship’s cannon and a drunken bet – but that’s another story!

    It would seem that the late Captain was not as respected as he thought, but then his name was rather apt. The big question is, who hooked the crook??

  • The Smashed Hits Poll Winners Murder! (mixed gender)

    With the awards ceremony about to take place, the stars gather in the wings, each one hoping for their big moment on the stage as the winners are announced. As each nervous nominee arrives they are greeted by the evening’s presenters, which tonight includes the famous Doug Beldof, the key organiser of the Elastoplast concert for famine relief in Ethiopia.

    Tensions are high already, but then disaster strikes – Doug is found dead in the Gents toilets! With stars vying for awards there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that his death is the result of foul play – murder to be exact!

    The only question is: which one of these famous pop stars actually committed the crime?

    It’s 1980 and things are perty perfect at the Southwether Ranch.

    Just as the cocktails are served, a gunshot is heard from the billiard room upstairs. To everyone’s shock, Brock’s son, Jay R. Ewein is found dead!

  • Bump off at the Grind

    Welcome, one and all, to Burlesque!  A world of bumps, grinds, teases, corsets, lash extensions, pouts, stage lighting and smoke awaits you!  Nothing is what it seems here and everyone has a gimmick.  Some showing a little more, other’s showing a little less, with fans, umbrellas, wings, balloons, glitter and other accessories adding to the erotic mystique that make up Burlesque!

    Pin-up glamour, steampunk, erotic gothic and rockabilly fashion all sit comfortably together in The Grind, the city’s best known burlesque venue.  The troupe are all dressed up and ready to go!

    Unfortunately for everyone, this evening’s entertainment has had to be cancelled.  Ivor Merkin, the owner of The Grind, has been found dead in the girl’s dressing room amidst all the feathers, pasties, tit tape and fans.  With the backstage area only accessible to the dancers, bar staff and other troupe members, someone here clearly had more than teasing on their mind when they arrived this afternoon.  The question is… who?

  • Pop Music, Murder and Mayhem!

    Brett Pop is dead! They found him last night, murdered at his keyboard while trying to write a song. So much for his comeback.

    Grab your combat trousers, Fab ice lolly and a copy of Now 39 and join in the musical mystery tour!

  • Murder Within Tent

    14 people have been anonymously invited on a free two week camping trip at a recently modernised but remote campsite in the Highlands of Scotland. The campsite, owned by a Mr Andy Field, is actually an old Scouting and Guiding site that has been updated to include all the facilities necessary for a top rated campsite.

    During the day, 12 of the campers arrive and set up their tents and it soon becomes obvious that apart from one other tent that was already up before they arrived, they are the only ones staying at the site. As night falls, one of the lady campers visits this lone tent and makes a grisly discovery – inside the tent is the dead body of a woman!

    Who is she? And how did she die?

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.  

A. Nonymous (council employee)

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.  

Alan Young (Personal Touch Mortgages)

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!!!!!
