An Educational Execution

It’s the annual staff party for the Kendrick Mansfield Primary School.

However just before the final guest arrives, the unpopular deputy head, Ed Hunter is discovered dead in the hall outside. There was no denying he had lost friends and been a bad influence on people, but clearly he had offended one person too many.

His killer could only have been one of the guests at the party – but the question is, who hated him enough?

  1. Happy Customer

    Hi Jo, just to say that we all had a great evening at the weekend with An Educational Execution. A-s we all work in a school it had special significance 🙂 With a few of the names changed we could have been discussing some of the staff for real 🙂 Also a special thank you (again!) for the help that you gave me with a change of script, this was because someone pulled out of the evening too late for me to find a replacement ! If anyone is visiting your site for the first time I would tell them, don’t bother wasting your time looking all over the web, this site has it all and everything is made so easy 🙂 Of course as always you are sooooo helpful 🙂 By the way if my grammar/spelling is poor I blame Mark Morbooks !!!! Thanks again, Gerry

How it works:

Don’t panic! There is no special acting required. Guests do not need to memorise any information, and everything they need to play their parts is provided in a handy booklet. The games are constructed so that everyone has to interact, and scripted dialogues are included to help break the ice and get everyone into character. Even total novices get into the swing of things quite quickly!

The game includes both sound files (MP3 with a download or CD with a boxed set) and a script for the inspector character who provides the setting, clues, and summaries for each round, as well as the final solution. This means as host you too can play and remain completely in the dark as to the culprit, or play the inspector yourself and invite an extra guest to the party!

Each “download and print at home” kit is provided as a zip file containing a set of PDF files for you to print at home, and a selection of MP3 files to use on the night.

Each dinner party game requires use of a printer and A4 paper (approx. 80 sheets for a 6 player kit – 240 sheets for a 20 player kit), envelopes so you can send out your invitations, and either a laptop or MP3 player (e.g. an ipod) to play the inspector MP3s; OR a CD burner so you can burn the MP3s onto a CD to run in an ordinary CD player.

When you order the game you’ll be sent a link to download the files you need.  The file will be a zip file.  This can be opened with a zip compatible program on your computer.  If you struggle to open zip files – we can email you the game directly over several emails instead – just contact us after purchase to arrange this.

You will download the following files:

  • How to use this game
  • Instructions for running the murder mystery
  • Making the most of your theme- ideas for decoration / activities.
  • Invitations
  • Character Booklets (available in single sided printer and double sided printer format)

  • MP3 files for the inspector character (dialogue and solution)

Characters in the game:

Mark Morbooks – English Coordinator
Enthusiastic and motivational, Mark is always encouraging people to work harder, work smarter and fit as much into the day as possible.

Anne Abacus – Maths coordinator.
Polite and well spoken, Anne is a friend to the children and popular with the staff, if a little naïve.

Penny Pincher – Bursar.
With a strong no-nonsense personality, Penny scares most people in the office stiff and rarely lets any money past her tight purse strings.

Gill Ted – Assistant Head Teacher.
Polite and well spoken, Gill smiles when she talks to you, but after you’ve left… well…

Andy Mann – Caretaker
Rarely out of his overalls, Andy loves his job, enjoys working with his hands and has always been very forthright in his conversation.

Ben Hackin – IT teacher.
A computer nerd with long hair and geeky glasses, Ben is easy to spot in any gathering as he’ll be looking uncomfortable and reading something… anything…

Customise this game

This game can be customised to fit your event for an additional fee.

It’s hard to give “ball park” figures for what different customisations would cost however we’ve attempted to HERE.  Please do contact us for a free quote if you would like any customisations on your game before purchase.

Remember… if you just need 1 extra person, or 1 less person, why not have someone play the inspector role?

The inspector can usually be male or female as the “for real” inspector can simply invent a new name for themselves.

Some hosts prefer to play the inspector role as it means they can work on the catering while the round plays out amongst their guests.
