Time with friends and family is valuable, you get together, talk, cook or play together. Anyone who gets bored with the usual program looks for inspiration for new events. How about a murder mystery dinner? Here you can find out what you need to know about the murderous fun and what tips can be helpful for a smooth process.

A mystery dinner is an original game night at home where the host and guests role-play. In addition, we dine together so that dinner and play merge. The exact course of a crime dinner varies depending on the scenario chosen, so no two games are the same in terms of content and you can play it over and over again. As the host of a murder mystery dinner, you take on the organization. All players only receive an invitation to dinner in advance. In it, they learn what role they play in the game, receive suggestions for costumes and initial information about the murder as well as the place and time of the game night. This means that the preparation effort is very low, because the more detailed role books are only received on the evening of the game. Over the course of the evening, the criminal case gradually unfolds as the players start talking and reveal the background to each role. The clarification succeeds with the help of heated dialogues, hidden clues, treacherous letters, shocking photos and mysterious documents.
