A Fete Worse Than Death! Virtual Murder Mystery Game
Murder strikes at a community fete, and you've got to use your detective skills to narrow down the suspects and catch the culprit before they get away. This murder mystery game is fabulous fun for a friends and family virtual get-together with plenty of twists, turns and laughs along the way.
We've adapted our successful live event of the same name to introduce a few new characters, a different plot and new motives to offer our fans a brand new Whodunnit to participate in & solve from home.
Looking after your mental health has never been more important, that's why we're donating 10% of each game's proceeds to Mind, the mental health charity.
The community fete is rocked when a glamorous heiress is killed by falling debris from the spire of the church. Two years later, plucky amateur detective Barbara Pinkerton investigates this 'tragic accident' and uncovers a tangled web of lies, deceit and betrayal. Now you and the fete committee must work out Whodunnit and Why before the killer strikes again!
Once you purchase the game, you'll receive an email with everything you need to host your party, including a Host Guide with tips on how to make the most of your murder mystery experience, and a script for each character (eight in total). Each script also contains clues, interactive questioning rounds and activity suggestions to bring the spirit of the Fete to your virtual get-together!
How to Play
You and your guests can play all the roles but don't worry! There is no special acting required. Guests do not need to memorise any information, and everything they need to play their parts is provided in their script which they can read from during the game. Each game will have an equal number of male & female roles available and we'd encourage gender fluid casting when the host is assigning roles to add to the light hearted fun.
The games are constructed so that everyone has to interact, and scripted dialogues are included to help break the ice and get everyone into character. Even total novices get into the swing of things quite quickly!
If you have fewer than eight guests, try encouraging a partner, flatmate or child of one of your guests to participate, or guests can play multiple roles with a simple costume change between characters! It all adds to the fun.
This game can be played via video call using whichever video software you are most comfortable and confident with - we'd suggest the Zoom app, Google Hangouts, Skype, Facetime or Facebook Messenger. We'll share some ideas on how to make the most of your murder mystery party, including costume & prop tips for each character, in your Host Guide.
Baking enthusiast Mary Cherry - has she indulged in whisk-taking behaviour?
Jasper Coombs-Tracey MP - will you elect this slippery snob as your number one suspect?
The mysterious Miss Fortune - Hold on, she's getting a vision, and it gives us a bad feeling in our chakras!
Reverend Jock Daniels - Jock wants to help his community flourish. If he can do it sober, it'll be nothing short of a miracle!
And many more!
