Dishonour on the RMS Gigantic – Large group script

It is 1913 and once again the Blue Star Line’s flagship finds itself at the centre of some controversy.

It would be unreasonable to suggest that a stolen wedding anniversary present is in the same league as that messy business with an iceberg which befell the previous holder of such status, but this is no ordinary present.

The Blue Star Line is very keen indeed to ensure that the RMS Gigantic with all its grandeur and refinery receives nothing but positive press coverage – so any kind of theft would be bad news. However, a theft with links to the British royal family really is alarming …

The inspector/facilitator role is essential for the game to work. He/she facilitates the entire evening.

The other characters can be taken from the audience and briefed before game play starts, OR you can select a group to play your suspects in advance of the night and give them time to get fluent in their roles and answers.

The rest of the guests are fully included in the game as they’ll be asking questions throughout the night.

Essential Cast:
Master-at-arms – The man responsible for solving the crime
Efficient in his own peculiar way, the Master-at-arms has an unusual method of solving crimes – he involves everyone!

Richard Nouveau-Riche – Dodgy dealer in curios and collectibles
Dressed in the loudest fashions of the day, Richard hides his wealth from no-one.

Marion Nouveau-Riche – Long suffering wife
Although she yearns for a quieter life and dresses down her wealth, Marion always speaks her mind.

Kate Wingsitt – Professional dancer
Dressed to twirl. Kate loves to dance and entertain, but money always waltzes away from her!

Charles Champagne
– The champagne socialist
Obsessed with the plight of the working man, Charles dresses just like one.

Gerry Van Der Halliwell – The experimental musician
Gerry ALWAYS wears orange to reflect her fierce Dutch patriotism.

Reverend I.T.Best – Efficiency is all
Reverend Best carries his orderly paperwork and fine pocket watch wherever he goes.

Additional characters in the 9 cast game:

Celine De Lyon – The singer
Iconic singing star with the trappings and jewellery to match. But Celine can never have enough…

Dr Doeslittle – The vet
Dr Doeslittle is interested only in wildlife and has no time for anything else. Like buying clothes, or going to work.

Additional characters in the 11 cast game:

Dilly Duster – The Chambermaid
Dilly works in the first class cabins, seeing the lives of people from a different world.

Jack DeCaprio – The chancer
Third class passenger Jack is a cheeky rogue with an eye for the ladies, and a physique to impress them.

Additional characters in the 13 cast game:

Sir Wyn Davies – The interior designer
Fine and upstanding expert in interior design, with flamboyant dress sense.

Anne Ocean
– A female inventor
Full of ingenious ideas, Anne is much more absent minded when it comes to dress and tends to wear men’s clothing as it is so much more practical.

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 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.

We can customise this game.  However, sadly we do have to charge for this service as even minor customisations take between 1-2 hours to process in the office and we need to buy toilet roll and biscuits as much as the next person…

It’s hard to give “ball park” figures for what different customisations would cost however we’ve attempted to HERE.

Remember… if you just need 1 extra person, or 1 less person, why not add in the inspector as your extra guest.  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.

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!!!!!
