Easy & Fun Murder Mystery Party Games

Experience an exciting night of Mystery, Blackmail, Intrigue & Treachery!

Boxed Murder Mystery Party Game KitBoxed or downloaded Dinner and a Murder Mystery Games will provide you and your guests with a unique and memorable party experience. Whether you are hosting a dinner party, social event, theme night, or just getting together with friends; our games provide the perfect ice breaker. Even strangers will be talking, laughing and scheming like the best of friends in no time. Your party will be a stand out hit with your guests.

There are no scripts to read, with the exception of the Evidence Presentation and the Solution. The interactive mingle format allows more intimacy between your guests. You all become a part of the mystery, instead of feeling like you are just sitting around a table reading cards and playing a game. No dreaded party lulls! Be prepared to discover how cunning your friends REALLY are!

Unlike scripted games, you and your guests are allowed to determine your own fate. How will you handle your enemies? How will you achieve your goals and desires? Your decisions will have consequences! It is not just about solving the murder. You will find that you and your guests will all have their own agendas!

Our games are easy for you to play and host. The characters are well developed without being complicated. If you are new to hosting or participating in murder mystery games; I suggest reading our forum topic How to Host a Murder Mystery Party Game!

  • All is not serious doom & gloom. Your party will have some quirky, fun characters and hilarious situations, that will keep you and your guests thoroughly entertained.
  • Do not be surprised if there are more guests 'murdered' during your party. You will use Weapons Cards for this. There is also an optional Clue driven Scavenger Hunt! Don't worry, no guest will ever be left sitting on the sidelines.
  • We have games for 8-50+ guests to suit just about any party size and they do not require an exact number to be able to play.

  • Every game has its own comprehensive theme page, which will provide you and your guests everything you need to host the perfect party. Menus, recipes, decorations, costumes, accessories, party supplies, crafts, cakes and much more.
