Why a mystery dinner in Ashburton would be ideal.

Why don’t you try something different this time round and host or attend a mystery dinner party! This kind of party will attract people who love a good mystery. You and your guests will be placed in a fictitious murder scene where you support the detective to find shreds of evidence and clues. The truth will only be unveiled once all the pieces of evidence are combined. We guarantee you that your guests will have a wonderful time and will ask to be invited again! See the games below and find out who will be the best detective in the island!

I can see you have a Dinner Edition and a Premium Edition murder mystery game. Which should I get?

Premium Edition games are for events having between 2 to 120 guests. This could be your next team building, fundraiser, staff party – basically for any large event that you want to be amazing. The Dinner Edition is for party that can be hosted even on those lazy evenings on the weekends. You and your 8 friends can play these games over dinner in a relaxed casual manner. It easy to host and you do not need a professional to oversee the events of the game.

How do I choose a theme?

Role-playing characters from a different time period, background or geographical location is one of the most exciting elements of hosting a mystery party. Think of what your guests would enjoy and create that world for them. If they are sport lovers, you can get our NFL Assassination and use it for your team building event. Or, if they are into fashion, you can order our Hollywood Scandal which is by far our most popular murder mystery theme. If you want to continue researching possible themes, check out our selection above.
