Looking for a piece of holiday sun that doesn’t involve street hawkers and paparazzi, the MV Tipanic, a modern cruise ship with a distinguished clientele, is the first port of call for many celebrities and the disgustingly rich.

Cruising up and down the Nile, taking in the sights of the Tomb of the Kings and Thebes, passengers can remain aloof from the maddening crowds and work on their all-over tans (should they choose to) or engage in the more leisurely traditional pursuits of deck quoits and swimming.

This evening however, the passengers have been disturbed; not by street urchins or hawkers but by the announcement that one among their number has been found dead in her cabin!

With the boat a days sailing from port, it can mean only one thing… the murderer is someone on board!

This is an audience participation murder mystery. Please come prepared to get involved. The suspects will be selected on the night and include:

Fifi Galores – Movie star.
Sophisticated and elegant, Fifi has a sparkling presence and some very chic clothing.

Dickie Bow – Decadent playboy.
In a full tux, Dickie has a great body and cuts quite a figure.

Jimmy Capstones – Archeologist.
Young and exuberant, Jimmy has abandoned his tatty archaeologist’s clothing in honour of the cruise and instead is wearing his father’s old tuxedo.

Ben Borinholls – Oil baron.
Successful throughout Latin America, Ben is a man of presence who knows how to win friends and influence people.

Rita Glossimagg – International reporter.
Elegant and refined, Rita knows how to get ahead in life and dresses stylishly to accentuate her natural good looks.

Ariadne Strange – Heiress of a Greek shipping company.
Young, beautiful and incredibly wealthy, Ariadne is always surrounded by wannabe suitors.


Chefs home-made soup of the day
Home-made chicken liver bacon and brandy pâté with Melba toast


Supreme of chicken in a white wine bacon and mushroom sauce.
A poached fillet of cod on wilted spinach topped by a rich cheese sauce

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.

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.

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!!!!!
