Montegue Viper’s: Death or Mr Big Nose!

2 reviews | Write your Review

Some people said he had it coming. One might even say he couldn’t help himself. It was yet another day full of arguments, threats and scuffles and finally, the inevitable has happened.

Big Nose is dead. Dead as a parrot.

But how did he die? And why? Well, let’s solve that bit now. He was utterly obnoxious, prone to violent outbursts and nobody liked him, not even his wife. And he did have a very big nose…

Characters in the 6 player game:

Ryan – Definitely not the Messiah.
With a beard, skull cap and a simple robe and sandals, Ryan can be a naughty boy sometimes, a very naughty boy.

Judy – A female member of the Front of the Judean People’s Party.
Bright eyed and full of fervour, Judy always wears a simple black robe with a belt to accentuate her voluptuous figure.

Candy – Ryan’s mum.
Very poor and not very pretty, not very pretty at all, Candy has a slight beard, and tends towards very revealing clothing.

Mrs. Big Nose – Wife of Mr. Big Nose
Something of a trophy wife, Mrs. Big Nose enjoys the trappings of wealth and dresses in fine robes and accoutrements.

Pontius Pilate – Pontius is not a pilot as they haven’t been invented yet, but a local Roman leader.
Living in utter luxury, Pontius dresses in the finest robes and sandals imported from Versaccius in Rome.

Uglius Sinnus – Ex-leper.
Cured by a local up-and-coming messiah, Uglius is now no longer ugly and is in fact very beautiful, if a little poorer now that her begging career is over!

Additional characters in the 8 player game:

Reggy – Rebel leader of the Front of the Judean People’s Party.
Tall, clean-shaven and wearing a black robe and scullcap – Reggy is a great pontificator.

Carole Cheveland – Actress on standby for use in this murder mystery.
Rather attractive and with a buxom figure, Carole is usually retained for the more sexy roles.

Additional characters in the 10 player game:

Mr. Cheeky – Well, he is very cheeky!
From a well-to-do family, Mr. Cheeky has stylish robes and sandals, but his pride and joy is his fabulous blue decorated skullcap.

Orletta/Dan – A very mixed up lady.
With an overwhelming urge to be a man rather than a woman, Orletta/Dan wears dark very masculine robes, butch sandals and a little fake moustache.

Additional characters in the 12 player game:

Ari Trotter – Hard working stall owner.
Dressed in slightly dusty but bright robes, Ari has a strong voice, always has his wares with him, and haggles constantly.

Joot – A medieval lady from Castle Anthrax, misplaced in time.
With flowing white robes, Joot is a little out of place, but it’s nothing that a good spanking won’t cure.

Never run a downloadable murder mystery before? Then don’t panic!There is no special acting required. Guests do not need to memorise any information, and everything they need to play their parts is provided to them in a handy printable booklet. The games are constructed so that everyone has to interact, and scripted dialogues are included to help break the ice and get everyone into character. Even total novices get into the swing of things quite quickly!

The game includes both sound files and a script for the inspector character who provides the setting, clues, and summaries for each round, as well as the final solution. This means as host you too can play and remain completely in the dark as to the culprit, or play the inspector yourself and invite an extra guest to the party!

Each downloadable dinner party game requires use of a printer, around 120 sheets of A4 paper (each character booklet is around 9 pages long), 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 purchase this kit you will download the following files:

  • How to use this game
  • Instructions for running the murder mystery
  • Making the most of your theme- ideas for decoration / activities.
  • Invitations
  • Character Booklets (available in single sided printer and double sided printer format)
  • Scripted for the inspector character (available in single sided printer and double sided printer format)
  • Solution script for the inspector character (needed when printing from the single sided copy)
  • MP3 files for the inspector character (dialogue and solution)
  • Hints and tips
  • Recipe suggestions
  • Money off voucher towards next purchase

When you purchase this kit as a printed kit you will receive through the post:

  • Instruction booklet (includes hints and tips)
  • Invitations and envelopes for all the guests
  • Character booklets
  • CD of the inspector
  • Inspector booklet in a sealed envelope so you don’t find out the solution by accident!
  • Making the most of your theme and recipe suggestions booklets.
  • Money off voucher towards next purchase (printed inside the booklets)

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.

  1. Hi! We did this game on Saturday evening, complete with SPAM as part of the menu and that game was a hoot! There are some brilliant Monty Python references so any Python fans out there will love this… Thanks for another great game. Also, my Deluxe packs have arrived in time for me to parcel them up as gifts for the family, so thanks for sorting these. They look amazing – great Christmas presents!

  2. The Death of Mr Big Nose – If you are a Monty Python fan then you’ll love this twist on a well loved Python story. We thoroughly enjoyed our mystery evening full of witty Pythonesque references. If you want to go the whole hog introduce Spam to your dinner menu and get into character – you will have a great fun night ! 5 /5

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!!!!!
