4 reviews for The Duke of Hazzards is Dead!

  1. Happy Customer

    I had never hosted a murder mystery party before but had the opportunity to participate in one and really enjoyed it so I decided to get a group of girls together and put one on myself. The Duke of Hazzards game could not have been a more perfect choice and my guests had the greatest time. The game was so well written and so much fun. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I am definitely looking forward to my next party where I will be including our husbands. I am so happy I discovered your website.

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:

Big Bertha Bogg – The bawdy, bodacious and buxom wife of Bubba “The Duke” Bogg. Always seen wearing expensive clothing and jewellery, Bertha probably carries more clout (and cash) than any other woman in Hazzards.

Bobbi Pynn – Bobbi is a gum chewing, friendly woman who runs a Beauty Salon out of her trailer in Hazzards. With up done hair, she is never seen without her blue eye shadow and red lipstick.

Cher Mee – Cher Mee is a lovely, French Cajun lady who waitresses at the Bogg Diner and is never seen without a deck of cards. Sometimes her clothing seems a little risqué to the women of Hazzards, but they accept it because she’s “French”.

Bella DeBall – A faded spinster and Southern Belle who lives at the edge of Hazzards. She is never seen outside of her home without full makeup, wearing a dress, holding her parasol, with her trademark fake rose in her hair.

Daisy Mae – A freckled faced farm girl who is perpetually 16 and wears her hair in pigtails, while donning her cut off jeans and plaid shirt.

Barrie Foote – Married when she was 15, Barrie sells her jellies and jams at Bogg’s grocery store. She wears her clothes a little tight and her hair a little big, but she is fun loving and never knows a stranger.

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.
