An Isolated Case

‘The House’ is a new experimental reality TV show where the residents live in social isolation, only communicating with each other by text chat.  Each week, the most popular rated resident is given the choice of who to evict from the building.

This week, the most popular resident by public vote was Corina Virus.  After a day of agonising over who to kick out of the show, she has gone to the gym to work off her stress.

Unfortunately, there is a problem.  It seems the house won’t be losing just one resident this week because Corina Virus has been found dead by the studio team!  That means, for the first time ever, the house will be losing two residents this week – one in a body bag and one in handcuffs!

Can you work out which of the contestants managed to pull off the ultimate in locked room murder mysteries?

This game is designed to be played by ANY GENDER, and also any number of players between 4 and 6.  All variations will be downloaded on check out.  You don’t need to specify anything further.

    Highly recommend this game! It comes with everything you need and the puzzle game is an excellent extra that really got everyone thinking. This was the first time doing a murder mystery and it worked out better than I could imagine. The guests all enjoyed it and can’t wait to do another one soon.

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.

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.
