mamamiamurder

Mama Mia, the legendary female pop star with a string of hit records stretching back more than twenty years, has been found dead in her dressing room at a concert venue in Madrid. Tonight was the debut night of her latest tour, and with live TV coverage, she was due to perform not just to ticket holders, but also to a prospective “stay at home” audience of over 50 million people!

The initial reports indicate that the star seems to have committed suicide, but the Spanish police are taking no chances and a number of members of the singer’s entourage as well as some other people connected to the singer are currently under arrest and are believed to be ‘helping with the enquiry.’

By buying this product you can collect up to 174 loyalty points, which will be worth £8.70 to spend on your next purchase.

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:

Inspector Fernando Aha – The policeman sent to solve the crime
Efficient in his own peculiar way, Inspector Fernando Aha has an unusual method of solving crimes – he involves everyone!

Walter Lew – Record company boss
A bit of a business magnate, Walter Lew is a New York loudmouth with appalling dress sense and a foul smelling cigar.

Jacqui Chansonmee – Self-made multi-millionairess and owner of SONMEE Entertainments
Behind a well cultivated public image of being a woman’s woman and dressing in flowing dresses and flowery blouses, Jacqui Chansonmee is a business tyrant ready to fire anyone who wears the wrong colour trousers.

Ritchie Keeter – Mama Mia’s Supporting Act
A young, trendy pretty-boy Ritchie Keeter is always seen in THE latest fashions and would be a star in his own right, but for the fact he has fallen out with every manager he has ever had!

Julie Voo – Japanese bodyguard and expert in martial arts
Although almost school-girl in appearance, Julie’s looks are very deceptive, and with a black belt in all forms of martial arts – she is NOT a girl to mess with.

Dan Sequin – Mama Mia’s Choreographer
In touch with his feminine side, Dan is prone to mood swings and wears pastel coloured clothing.

Sue Patroopa– Mama Mia’s Doctor
With dazzling smile and “put you at your ease” mannerisms, Sue Patroopa is stunningly attractive to the opposite sex, before you even take into account her white coat.

Additional characters in the 9 cast game:

Ivor Dreme Mama Mia’s Security Chief
Solidly built wearing a dark suit and tie, Ivor Dreme is definitely not to be messed with.

Davina Teksittal – Mama Mia’s Personal Assistant
Smart and competent but suffering under Mama Mia’s constant verbal abuse, Davina Teksittal could be very pretty underneath her stern, efficient suits.

Additional characters in the 11 cast game:

Jimmy Gimigimi – Energetic supporting dancer for Mama Mia
Scottish and proud, Jimmy Gimigimi is often seen in his national dress – when he isn’t in lycra and spandex that is.

Honey Funnymoni – Concert venue manager
An Italian ex-model, Honey Funnymoni is exceptionally stylish and is well known for her short Italian temper and even shorter skirts!

Additional characters in the 13 cast game:

Noel Ingyu – Freelance American Journalist
Clutching notepad and with camera ever at the ready, Noel Ingyu is scruffy but always ready for the latest scoop.

Cassie Andra – Mama Mia’s Wardrobe manager
In sparkling dresses, or rip off skirts, Cassie Andra is extremely attractive, but a little indecisive when it comes to getting changed, a personality trait which can lead to all sorts of interesting combinations!

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.  

A. Nonymous (council employee)

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!!!!!
