How it works:

How do multi room scripts work?

Multi-room events are designed to be run in multiple rooms in a venue and are a great way of showing off your premises, or getting maximum footfall through what would otherwise be too small a venue for a traditional murder mystery evening.

These events have proved very popular with the guests, as it encourages them to interrogate the suspects and locate clues hidden around the building. There are usually seven to eight cast, one murder occurs before the evening and the crime scene is set up in one of the rooms in the venue.

The instructions document (the sample file attached) contains the details of the physical clues you will need to obtain for the evening – these are usually easy to obtain props, and some games have paper clues within them too.

We usually suggest a roving buffet as the guests move between rooms, but some hosts prefer to have a formal two-course meal mid-way through the evening.

For these events guests require a special handout and a pen/pencil to keep track of information presented to them.

The scripts are, in the main, monologues which means they can be learned ahead of the event by the actors. Two actors will share a duologue.

Due to the nature of these events, and the need for each guest to have a hand-out, we will only print one copy of each file when ordered as a printed kit. If you wish further copies of the guest handout – please get in touch so we can find out how many copies you need and provide you with a quote.

How does a “download and print at home” kit work?

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.

Flint Westwood (Gunslinger)
Stetson wearing, toothpick chewing, gunslinger, Flint Westwood is quick on the draw, even though he is not so quick on the shaving – but according to the women, that unshaven look is “in” this year.

Sissy Runaway (Saloon girl)
Skirt swishing, leggy singer-cum-dancer, Sissy loves men in all forms, those in uniform especially, and a murder is just the thing needed to pull in the sheriff and all his deputies.

Butch Sundance (Bartender)
If you want to waste away again in Margaritaville, then Butch Sundance, bartender of the Crazy Horse Saloon, is your man.

Wild Bill Hiccup (Prospector)
Dusty, disheveled and prone to spitting, Wild Bill Hiccup was a little too slow to keep up with the Gold Rush and has remained in Backwater Creek ever since.

Squaw Hide (Native American Indian Squaw)
Barefoot and with feathers in her long flowing dark hair Squaw Hide is a picture of health and vitality. With a sideline repairing settlers’ wagons you could say she keeps those wagons rolling.

Sheriff Lone Stranger (Sheriff of Backwater Creek)
