In America, Prohibition is still in full swing and while it makes alcohol a difficult commodity to attain, it certainly isn’t impossible.

Mickey Scapone is boss of one of the largest gangs responsible for importing the contraband. He owns Swingers, arguably the most popular speakeasy in all Chicago. From bodyguards to sassy jazz singers, alcohol to fine dining, this hip club has everything.

And tonight – it even has a murder. Mickey Scapone, the big boss himself, is dead.

The Cast:

Tony Tortellini (Mickey Scapone’s Lieutenant)
With sleek hair and pencil moustache, Tony may look respectable in his tux, but he is never without his side-arm, leg-arm, rear-waistband-arm, up-the-sleeve-arm…

Bonnie Enclyde
(Singer, dancer and Mickey’s moll)
A femme fatal with a fascinator in her hair and a very fancy frock, Bonnie is Mickey’s moll and everybody knows it.

Robin Folks (Mickey Scapone’s accountant)
Well dressed and with a head for numbers, Robin has a pencil moustache, slicked hair and a cold calculating eye.

Harvey Wallbanger (Barman)
With quick wrist action, witty patter and a natural flair for cocktails, Harvey Wallbanger is the barman at Swingers, and a natural confidante for many of the clientele.

Bunny Hugg (The newest singer at the club))
With short bobbed hair and an equally short dress, Bunny just loves jazz, and her tassels are guaranteed to swing with her thing.

Sly Shyster (Senator)
A democrat of ambition and drive, Sly is a man who knows how to press flesh and win votes.

Candy Stealer (Sly Shyster’s fiancee)
Smart, sophisticated and incredibly attractive, Candy Stealer knows just how to get what she wants.

Elliot Mess (Mafia Stooge)
Elliot Mess is the detective sent to solve the case. He provides the solution speech at the end of the evening.

How this format of large group script works

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.

  1. At first it appeared that running this game would be nerve wrecking but as I worked through the very clear details and information provided the game came together seemlesly. Needless to say the Red Herring Team were readily available to assist with telephonic support. The game went well and had our group fully engaged. This was a really engaging end of your party game.

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!!!!!
