Superhero Themed Murder Mystery

The Dangerous Despair of B-List Superheroes – Large group script

Not all superheroes are born with special powers to allow them to save the world.  Superman and Wonderwoman don’t know how lucky they are.  Who would Superman have been with a little less kryptonite?  Moderately Impressive Man?  Faster than a speeding tricycle?

No, some superheroes don’t make the news because they are blessed with special powers that are almost useless.  Worse still, others acquire powers which are a downright nuisance.

Tonight is one of those few occasions when such individuals can truly be themselves.  They have gathered together to share their secrets over a meal, conjoined by the special bond of just being different.

Unfortunately, even that has been brought to an unfortunate end by the untimely death of Bill Cody, a building contractor who has been found dead in the hotel where their gathering is taking place.  Perhaps our heroes can show their mettle by solving the riddle of his death….

Whats in the kit

How do these games kits work?

These games require 7-13 cast and involve the rest of the audience by getting them to ask pre-set questions – which are provided to them on paper by the inspector at the start of each round.

They run in a similar way to a dinner party, so are an ideal first choice for novice hosts and acing teams with little or no experience running large scale events.

These games work best as a sit down event with 6-12 tables of guests, with a suspect on each table.

As a rough guide these mysteries take approximately 2-3 hours to complete with a three course meal.

During the game the audience will listen to five short sets of dialogue from the cast and pose pre-scripted questions (which the cast answer with pre-scripted answers). There are three rounds which can be evenly spread throughout the night or, if preferred, the question and answer rounds can be bunched together into one large round.

At the end of the final round the guests are given time to decide who is the murderer, and once the guests have decided who did it, how and why (i.e. the murderer and motive) they will complete the answer sheet and hand it in.

How these games usually run.

Introductory Round: Introductions by the cast and the facilitator “inspector character”.
Rounds 1, 2 and 3: Scripted dialogue from the cast, followed by pre-set questions and answers.
Concluding Statements and solution: conclusions by the cast and denouement from the inspector.

There is one “inspector character” who acts as a facilitator during the event and is essential to the cast.

Reducing the cast size will reduce the length of time required to solve the mystery.

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.
