Get together online and solve a crime!
Red Herring Games stock a range of Murder Mystery games ideal for any virtual friend or family get together.
In this uncertain time of social isolation – there has become a need to socialise while keeping your distance. It seems weird. It seems strange. It’s certainly unprecedented – but as far as we’re concerned – the show must go on… and for us at least – the parties still can!
Heres how our murder mystery games work…
Pick the game you want to play and download it. Our clear ratings will ensure you get the right plot for your group, and we’re here to help you if you need an odd gender ratio of guests, or just have odd guests you need us to accommodate!
Email all your guests using our invitations which give them just enough information to prepare for their role and set and set the scene. Include information about which virtual software / app you will be using (see our hints and tips for more on this!).
Email character booklet files to guests, addressing the page their chosen character’s information starts from. It is recommended to send them a single sided print option for easier use on screen
Host your virtual party!
Everything you need is provided in a character booklet, which means everyone knows what they should be talking about at every stage of the party. The inspector’s dialogue can be played across the video call (via microphone), or simply read in person from the provided script.
