Due to the wrong sort of cobbles on the turnpike, the mail coach makes an extended stay at The Highwayman’s Halt. Unfortunately, whilst the passengers are thus stranded, a long stay guest is murdered and a large sum of money goes missing.

Is it a fellow guest, a staff member or a passenger who is the murderer? Some days it just isn’t safe to see what’s come in the mail!

Characters in the 6 player game:

Ned Nickerley – Gentleman rogue.
An intelligent man of the world, Ned dresses solely but smartly in black and always seems to have money to spend or, if not money, then assorted valuables such as men’s pocket watches or ladies earrings.

Hubert Saggingsails – Jolly innkeeper.
Cap’n Hubert dresses and talks like the eye-patched, wooden-eared pirate he used to be before he decided to settle down on dry land.

Alfie Broadbum – Talkative coach driver.
The chatty Alfie wears tatty clothes and is constantly searching for more newspapers to push inside them as weatherproofing.

Miss Amelia Ravenblood – Bride to be.
Dressed to attract men, Amelia only has one requirement; that her men be perpendicular, male and still breathing.

Doris Thumplightly – Frumpy chaperone.
Bundled up in layers of clothing and covered in a cape, the ferocious Doris is a young ladies bodyguard and organiser.

Lady Panthea Katt – A refined woman.
With puffed sleeves, flowing dresses and plaited tresses, Lady Panthea Katt is somewhat out of place at the Highwayman’s Halt.


Additional characters in the 8 player game:

Mr Zackary Falsegoldsmith – New money businessman.
Zackary is a commoner posing as new middle class, a bread and dripping eater with very deep pockets.

Mrs Abbatissa Falsegoldsmith
– Ideas above her station wife.
Fiercely protective of her new place in society, Abbatissa has developed a very fine accent, wears lots of fake jewellery including a tiara, and carries an enormous handbag.

Additional characters in the 10 player game:

Capt Quentin Ramrod – Stiff upper lip, upper class military type.
A smart, be-medalled soldier, Ramrod is ever ready to take command in a crisis.

Dolores Saggingsails – Fierce tavern wench.
Dolores, the pirate-talking tavern wench, possibly illegally wed to Hubert, wears a fashion eye-patch even though it isn’t needed and shares his obsession with extracting money from paying guests.

Additional characters in the 12 player game:

Daft Sam– General helper at the Highwayman’s Halt.
With straw in his hair and holes in his clothes, Sam comes across as a bit dense but actually has hidden depths, evidenced by his copious note-taking.

Becky Pinchpenny – General maid.
A typical short-change expert serving wench with an eye for loose gold coins, Becky is quiet but observant, especially where unattended coins are concerned.

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.  

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!!!!!
