The impending marriage of Joan Bollins, glamorous star of stage and screen to Valentine Cupid – a mere wedding singer, has been the talk of Hollywood for months.

The wedding plans are extravagant – lavish – unprecedented, with the most romantic venue, fabulous flowers, and an exquisite menu, all of which was booked at very short notice to make sure the wedding happened on the most romantic date in the year – St. Valentine’s Day!

With Joan Bollins firmly in control of the wedding the guests are ready for anything – anything that is except the groom arriving at the venue dead!

Characters in the 6 player game:

Joan Bollins – The bride to be
Once again it looks as though this diamond encrusted, glitzy star of stage and screen has failed in marriage.

Seymour Films
– Film Director
Taking a short break from filming his latest blockbluster, Seymour is happy to direct any activity with or without his loud hailer.

Lucinda Marbles – Crazy Aunt
Dragged out of her retirement home for the weekend Lucinda is thoroughly enjoying herself, and the gin.

Mike Dupp – Sound FX coordinator
There’s no better way to say it: this man’s a geek! But the noises he can make with the oddest things are truly amazing!

Chloe Zonanoff – Model
With beautiful tan, and a smile for every camera, Chloe is the life and soul of any party, and stunning on the catwalk.

Tony Deff – Gondolier
Tony cuts a fantastic figure in his striped traditional gondolier’s shirt, waistcoat and tight trousers. Just don’t ask him to sing – you’ll regret it!

Additional characters included in the 8 player game:

Zoë Prano – Wedding Singer
With a voice like an angel, Zoë dresses to match, wearing floating dresses and a serene expression.

Aaron Ageestring – Guitarist
With long hair and glasses Aaron seems to be a bit behind the times in flares and sandals; but he plays well enough.

Additional characters included in the 10 player game:

Ivor Kit – Drummer
Enthusiastic about drums, Ivor rarely wears anything that could be considered appropriate at a wedding, and in is often found tapping out an irritating beat on any available surface.

Iona Kamara – Photographer
With a camera around her neck, and in a business suit, weddings (or murders for that matter) are all simply business for Iona.

Additional characters included in the 12 player game:

Ben Aroundabit – The first of Joan Bollins’ many ex-husbands
In expensive tuxedo and waving currency at any passing waiter, it is easy to see how Ben managed to remarry so quickly.

Wanda Aroundabit
– Ben’s wife and Personal Assistant
In smart business suit or fancy gown, Wanda is totally devoted to Ben and caters for his every whim.

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.

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!!!!!
