The Box Office Hit

It is the opening night of Hollywood’s latest blockbuster film “Undercover and Dangerous”.

The stars of the movie, directors and production team have gathered together at the cinema for the premiere screening of the film. Unfortunately midway through their glitzy cocktail reception disaster strikes! The promotional stunt goes horribly wrong!

Tom Spanks, the star of the movie, was scheduled to jump out from between the sheets of the mock double bed in the foyer waving his gun and quoting some lines from the film.

Instead the sheets twitch and then…. nothing. Tom fails to materialise. On investigation, the star is not just undercover – he’s dead as well! The question is: who killed him?

Sample

How it works:

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 in a handy 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 (MP3 with a download or CD with a boxed set) 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 “download and print at home” kit is provided as a zip file containing a set of PDF files for you to print at home, and a selection of MP3 files to use on the night.

Each dinner party game requires use of a printer and A4 paper (approx. 80 sheets for a 6 player kit – 240 sheets for a 20 player kit), 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 order the game you’ll be sent a link to download the files you need.  The file will be a zip file.  This can be opened with a zip compatible program on your computer.  If you struggle to open zip files – we can email you the game directly over several emails instead – just contact us after purchase to arrange this.

Characters in the game:

Antonio Bandana – Sound Man
With olive skin, tight dark trousers and a fantastic body (from holding up the boom) – Antonio is a real ladies man.

Meg Lyin – Actress
Blond and ditsy, Meg has a cute figure and always wears clothes that show it off.

Tom Fuse – Stunt Man
In jeans or leather trousers, Tom has a thing for living dangerously and has the scars to prove it.

Sandra Ballcock – Assistant Director
Busty and bossy – Sandra is always into cuts, low cuts, high cuts and cut aways – but don’t let her dresses fool you – she is not a girl to mess with!

Harris Enford – Animal Handler
Never without his trusty whip and leather hat, Harris is a real hunk of a man.

Judy Drench – 2nd assistant to the 3rd key grip
A lighting and rigging technician with formidable presence on the set, Judy is often in smart suits, and positively abhors sexist misogynist dinosaurs.

Customise this game

This game can be customised to fit your event for an additional fee.

It’s hard to give “ball park” figures for what different customisations would cost however we’ve attempted to HERE.  Please do contact us for a free quote if you would like any customisations on your game before purchase.

Remember… if you just need 1 extra person, or 1 less person, why not have someone play the inspector role?

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.
