The Transylvanian, a popular nightclub in town, is holding its yearly anniversary party. Mike Hobb, the club owner has sent out invitations to only a handful of friends and social elite to attend the gala event and have a howling good time.

Unfortunately, poor Mike will never get to enjoy the party as he has been found dead at the bottom of the wine cellar stairs! Was his death due to natural causes… or was it murder?

Some things might prove to be a bit “twisted” at the Transylvanian… Help detective I.C. Moore and the other guests figure out what really happened.

Characters in the 6 player game:

John Wolfman – Disc Jockey.
With a wild mane of hair and a howling voice, John has earned himself the nickname “Wolf”. He’s never without a repertoire of tunes that might be requested.

Pam Pyre – Disco Dancer.
Never one to be out danced and the ultimate vamp; she flashes her elongated cuspids proudly while wearing her signature black dress and long scarf.

Mumford “Mummy” Clummsie – Security Doorman.
A bit of a bungler, especially when shaving. Mumford is usually seen with bits of tissue paper all over his face and body, which he uses as his disposable bandages. He carries a back up roll of tissue with him at all times.

Evva Reddy – Barmaid.
Familiar with just about any cocktail recipe, Evva can shake her shakers and swizzle a stick with ease. Her specialty drink is the “Zombie” and she dresses like one, too!

Frank N. Stein – Playboy.
Even with scars on his face and a permanent neck injury, Frank’s image as “a man about town” has not been dampened. He sports a flat top haircut and a dark coloured suit.

Ivanna Hunt – Safari guide.
Just back from the deepest part of Africa, Ivanna wears her traditional safari boots, jodhpurs and helmet, with a whip at her side and a watch on her wrist.

Additional characters in the 8 player game:

Casper White – Scientist.
Pale from years of being in the lab, Casper runs straight from the lab to events all dressed in white and carrying an array of scientific gadgets.

Lucy N. D’Skyes – Socialite.
Something of a “snob” and dripping with diamonds, Lucy always wears the latest fashions and only accepts the most exclusive party invitations.

Additional characters in the 10 player game:

Freddie Crewgear – Fireman.
The most awarded fireman on the force; Freddie has a few burn scars, but that doesn’t stop him from carrying his long hose proudly while wearing his favourite striped tee shirt and fireman’s hat.

Carrie Bloodsworth – Stockbroker
With her red hair, pink dress and demur demeanour, one would never guess her ruthless side on the floor of the Stock Market during business hours.

Additional characters in the 12 player game:

Jacques Rippiere – Surgeon.
An internationally famous plastic surgeon, he is one of the last remaining doctors who might make a house call. He always carries his surgery tools, a mirror and medical bag with him, “just in case”.

Elvira Ebony – Goth movie star.
Famous in many cult classics, her claim to fame is her black mullet hairstyle, black eye makeup, and quick wit.

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. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the extraordinary effort you put into the collation and distribution process for “Twisted at the Transylvanian”. I received the package on Wednesday, 21 July and was thrilled to sift through the pieces. You have made this new endeavor feel quite simple and the pre-planning for the event has already begun. Our dinner is scheduled for 21 October; I shall let you know how it all turned out.

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!!!!!
