Never run a Themed Mystery Party before? Then don’t panic!
Hosting a themed mystery party isn’t too time consuming, and with ample preparation and help of a few adults prepared to act the part it is really quite simple and great fun!
This game does not require the children to play a part. Instead they work as a group to try and solve the mystery presented to them by the hosting adult through a series of games.
There is no murder involved – just a mystery, in this case a the party bags have been stolen!
To run this game you need a minimum of 5 adults. One will play the host (male or female ) and the other four are required to over see the workstations – these adults need no prior briefing and can be the parents of the children at the party. Rote learning of scripts is not required.
This game has been designed to run in a large venue with 4 work stations. The game requires a lot of advance planning and will need several key props, most of which are easily obtainable within the domestic setting, as well as magnifying glasses and fingerprint ink.
