Welcome to MI 6, the home of Britain’s top secret agents.

Once again, it appears M is in trouble. G.H.O.U.L. (Greedy, Heinous, Oppressive, Uncontrollable, Lawbreakers) have hatched yet another devious plot.

Fortunately MI 6 is hot on their trail. The only question is – can the guests uncover their evil scheme in time to save the world (again)!

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 secret bomb plot to blow up the Statue of Liberty.

To run this game you need a minimum of two adults, one of which will play the host M (male or female ) and Q (male). Both should be prepared to do a little acting, but rote learning of scripts is not required.

This game is written for home use.

  1. We held this party on Saturday 9th May 2009 for my Daughter’s 10th Birthday. 5 of her friends came dressed in a 007 theme and had great fun. The Party was extremely straight forward, and easy to do/adapt if need be (which I had to). In total with food, this Party runs for 3 hours of pure puzzle solving, clue finding, secret agent fun. Highly recommend to any Mum thinking of something different to do for a Birthday Party. Go on – try it!

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.

We supply this kit as a downloadable version or as a printed set. We recommend you purchase the downloadable set unless you really struggle with printing – as this is the most cost effective way to run the game (as the games included are primarily constructed from household items – and the “instructions document” forms up most of what you need to know.

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!!!!!
