No preparation required - just add friends!

Sir Richard Flyson is holding an exclusive garden party and barbeque at his summer residence to demonstrate his latest invention - a vacuum powered strimmer called the Vrimmer. But when Sir Flyson flicks the switch - well, let's just say the sausages aren't the only things that got burned. It looks like murder... but whodunit?

Simply Murder takes the hassle out of hosting with a pick-up-and-play kit that needs no preparation. You donít have to send out invitations or dress up (unless you want to). Just hand out the roles and let the fun begin!

Each player is given a character sheet containing a scripted introduction and key facts - there arenít any scripted questions or answers, leaving you completely free to improvise your role (acting tips are included)! Audio narration from Inspector Basset drives the game forward over three rounds, so you can play along with your friends - even the host doesnít know whodunit!

Simply Murderís relaxed format allows you to play the game at your own pace - finish it in an hour or stretch it over a lazy afternoon. Play in the garden or over dinner, at any time of the day or night...

16 invitations and costume suggestions (optional)
16 character sheets
16 whodunit cards
4 group evidence sheets
*audio evidence also available to download

Take the stress out of hosting with our bestselling brand!
* Play with ANY combination of 8-16 guests. No-one is 'bolted on', everyone's a suspect.
* The murderer is chosen on the night so the party still goes on if someone can't make it!
* No random guessing! Suspects have different stories if they're guilty, with important clues to help you solve whodunit.

Simply Murder at the Garden Party Reviews

Great Garden Party!!! Loved the fact that not difficult for guests to dress up with too much thought or cost. Looking forward to our next.Anon (2017)
It was fun to play but we were having an elegant dinner and the Inspector [on the cd] wanted a burger .... we had a lot of fun suspecting each other and it was good that we could all play as the murderer was a secret from everyone except themselves,Sarah (2016)
We had a great evening, everyone really enjoyed themselves. This was our second murder mystery we have purchased from you the other being murder at the manse. We look forward in hosting another in the future. Thanking you for supplying such great mysteries .Anon (2016)
We ordered this after going to the murder of moordoore, which all in costume was an absolute brilliant night. (can't remember much). So we ordered this one and made it with an authentic Swedish garden party food theme. Again everyone agreed it was an absolute brilliant evening. Oh I'm filling this in for my wife so not exactly we! All of us cannot wait until the next one.Yvette -Nigella Awesome 🍷 (2016)
We had a great time with the murder mystery set! Thank you for all the help you gave us.Louise Craigmyle (2016)
