What is a murder mystery dinner?
A murder mystery party is a themed dinner where attendees dress up to match a theme or assigned characters, and then work together to solve a fictitious murder which occurs during the party. The party guests not only have to investigate the murder, but they also become the suspects. By the end of the party, they must figure out who did it, how they did it, and why they did it. Role-playing characters from a different time period, background or geographical location is one of the most exciting elements of a mystery party.
WHAT DO DO? 要做些什么？
To solve the murder mystery, you’ll need to work with other guests to gather important clues. However, keep in mind that one of the guests will be the murderer. It’s important that you determine who your allies are early in the game. While some of the characters will help you, others will have been told to hinder your path toward the truth. Don’t be hurt if some of the guests act standoffish with you, it may just be because their character is hiding a secret they don’t want you to find out.
WHAT TO EXPECT?有什么可以期待的
No two murder mystery parties are the same, but there are some common elements that one can expect.
The first “Act” puts things in motion. It establishes the world in which the crime is going to take place. It introduces the main characters and some of their basic relationships with one another. The first “Investigation time” occurs. This is the first opportunity for the guests to start really digging into each others and work any provided goals.
When the second acts starts, the murder just happened, a scavenger hunt with specific clues about the death start, and some of the characters are interrogated for clues about themselves, their relationship to the deceased, and any reasons why they would, or would not have committed the crime.
The third act is the lineup. All of the primary suspects will be reviewed. Known clues will be revisited, as well as standout keys in their relationship to the deceased. The teams (or individuals) will have one last chance to ask the suspects public questions before having to solve the crime.
The guests will fill out a form with their final summary of who committed the crime, and why they had to go through with the heinous act. Once everyone has their guess logged, it's time for the revelation and the prizes
