Which is the best murder mystery party for you?

So you want to host a murder mystery dinner party. But which one is best for you?

Choosing a murder mystery might seem simple – you just pick one that sounds fun, right? – but the truth is there’s a little more to it than that. Not all murder mystery games are created equal. Some are easy to play out of the box while others require a little more effort. Some work better if your guests mingle, others are designed to be played around the dinner table. Some are serious, some are silly and others are downright rude!

Knowing what you want from your murder mystery game is the easiest way to ensure an enjoyable evening. So before you click off to buy the game with the nicest cover/silliest character names, take a look below to see which kit would suit you best.

You're not sure how many guests you'll have...

You need to entertain a large group...

A MURDER MYSTERY THEATRE game would be ideal. You just need 8 people to act out the mystery and an audience of any size to guess whodunit. You can also play these in your living room without an audience if you like.
