Whats in the kit
How do these games kits work?
These games require 7-13 cast and involve the rest of the audience by getting them to ask pre-set questions – which are provided to them on paper by the inspector at the start of each round.
They run in a similar way to a dinner party, so are an ideal first choice for novice hosts and acing teams with little or no experience running large scale events.
These games work best as a sit down event with 6-12 tables of guests, with a suspect on each table.
As a rough guide these mysteries take approximately 2-3 hours to complete with a three course meal.
During the game the audience will listen to five short sets of dialogue from the cast and pose pre-scripted questions (which the cast answer with pre-scripted answers). There are three rounds which can be evenly spread throughout the night or, if preferred, the question and answer rounds can be bunched together into one large round.
At the end of the final round the guests are given time to decide who is the murderer, and once the guests have decided who did it, how and why (i.e. the murderer and motive) they will complete the answer sheet and hand it in.
How these games usually run.
Introductory Round: Introductions by the cast and the facilitator “inspector character”.
Rounds 1, 2 and 3: Scripted dialogue from the cast, followed by pre-set questions and answers.
Concluding Statements and solution: conclusions by the cast and denouement from the inspector.
There is one “inspector character” who acts as a facilitator during the event and is essential to the cast.
Reducing the cast size will reduce the length of time required to solve the mystery.
Introducing the suspects
The inspector can be played by a male or female person but is essential to make the game format work. We suggest you cast your primary “Organizer” in this role. Or have the most organised as a supporting role to the inspector to keep the game moving along and hand out information at the right time.
Mary Malice – The ghostly Guardian Angel responsible for solving the crime
Efficient in their own peculiar way, has an unusual method of solving crimes – they involve everyone!
Ginny Choo – The glamorous housewife.
Dressed to kill, this former model is always showcasing the latest fashions. Passionate, fiery and newly widowed, she is certainly one to watch out for!
Teri Hatchett – The scatterbrain housewife.
Lovable but accident-prone klutz, she’s often seen in pastels and florals, but is she really as innocent as she seems?
Anita Fumble – The debauched housewife.
This scantily clad blonde bombshell is never far from the nearest man, and when she sinks her claws in, she doesn’t let go!
Mrs McDusty – The senior housewife.
Her wardrobe may not have been updated for 30 years, but her fierce sense of loyalty and no-nonsense approach makes her a neighbour you wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of!
Lotta Kidds – The have-it-all housewife.
Just because her suit has seen better days, don’t underestimate this mother of five. She juggles babies with boardrooms because she means business!
Phyllis Delphia – The perfect housewife.
With not a hair out of place, the ultimate Stepford wife is never out of her twinset and pearls, but is she capable of the perfect murder?

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.
