Flashback to the 1980s with this supercool murder mystery party! Who killed the boss? Everyone has stayed after work to attend Rupert Maxwells retirement party. Not because they like him, but because they want to make sure he is really going, once and for all. With no expense spared, his P.A. has organised a disco and the cheapest bubbly money can buy - but just as the party starts the bloated M.D. falls down dead. Host your own party to find out who made Maxwells party a real choker!

Murder in the Office lets you host a wild party with the minimum of fuss. The game contains everything you need to play from the host's guide and costume suggestions to recipes for a full three-course meal (it also plays well as a 'buffet-style' party). Here are a few other tips to help you host an unforgettable murder mystery night:
The 1980s were THE party years. If you're planning decorations, go for bright colours - especially neons - and lots of balloons, streamers, party poppers and banners.
This is an office party so that means plenty of paper plates and plastic cutlery to go with your sausage rolls and cheese sandwiches! Don't forget no office party is complete without some rude photocopies!
Murder in the Office comes with a full CD of background music. If you'd rather create your own playlist go for any 1980s compilation or look for the classic hits of the time from Madonna, Talking Heads, Michael Jackson and Wham!
No 80s themed party is complete without Sex on the Beach. Mix three parts vodka, orange juice and cranberry juice to one part peach schnapps. Shake well then strain into a highball glass with masses of ice. Garnish with fruit slices, colourful straws and those little umbrellas.
