Prepare the venue - a murder mystery dinner tends to include food. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative with the location and theme. This could be your home, office, hired venue or a train!

Send out the invitations in good time and remember to track RSVPs to make sure you have enough people for the party.

Prepare some killer meals. Dinner party food should feel a bit special – and you can definitely take cues from the theme that you choose. If hosting a Redneck Bride and the Billionaire, be sure to have a Death By Chocolate served – after all ‘til death do us part; Creepy eyeballs meatballs for dinner with our Haunted Horrors Murder Mystery Game. Get the drift?

Plan to decorate the venue using the party theme. You do not need to break the bank for this –adding small touches around the stage can add to the excitement and authenticity of the evening.

Dress accordingly, throw in some good music - you can use generic murder mystery-themed tunes – or use your party theme to choose music from that era.

And you are set!

Are your games like a Maggiano's murder mystery dinner?

In a way, except that you can have your own mystery dinner party anywhere!

Can you have a murder mystery dinner for kids?

Yes! With a mystery party, the children will play-act from a script or character clues, gather other clues, and attempt to solve a mystery.

What food suggestion do you have for a mystery dinner?

For small groups, simple meals like frankfurters and sauce for bloody fingers and Bloody Mary’s make the perfect cocktail. For groups larger than 15 the need to mingle often means that the game is best played before or after a meal. Otherwise cocktail style or finger food could be served.

Can the host play in the mystery dinner party?

If their hands are not full, yes they can – although they should not read the full clues lest the mystery is spoilt. Otherwise, they can leave themselves up for questions and guidance throughout the night.

I can see you have a Dinner Edition and a Premium Edition murder mystery game. Which should I get?

Dinner Edition is for 4 to 8 people while Premium Edition is for larger groups – 2 to 120 people.

Will my guests enjoy being dinner detectives?

If they don’t, change your circle!
