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...

Printable contents :
16 invitations and costume suggestions (optional)
16 character sheets
16 whodunit cards
4 group evidence sheets
Audio mp3 files (optional, evidence can be read out instead)

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 [Download] Reviews

A flexible mystery which allowed us to drop a couple of characters and was still very enjoyable.David (2017)
We played the game as part of a weekend event for young women (all members of Girlguiding) we had a fab time, It worked well and our members had a great time. Thanks, would definitely recommend you! Helen B (2017)
we played it on a beachside resort over a barbeque lunch in Florida about a week ago....had 8 characters just think this game would work with a larger group of a dozen plus or so....was much fun and all came in costumes and stayed in roles as usual, nobody guessed the murderer..thanks....Joe D.Anon (2016)
We had a go and had 18 people arrive and all took part it was great fun and would love to do again. Sharna (2016)
We usually have a box for our murder mystery, but this download was fine and worked really well. The sun shone and we were able to have our party outside. The costume suggestions worked well and the only thing we would have preferred was a script. I know this way the murderer can change each time, but a couple of our guests were no good at improvising and so it made it hard. All in all a good time was had and we would use again, but scripted next time Sally (2015)
