3 Steps to Murder Mystery fun!

1) Order a murder mystery game for your group size.

2) Host the party yourself or hire a professional murder mystery host.

3) Have a murderous good time.









Setting: Welcome to the beautiful Hotel Kurrajong which opened in 1926 (true story). Our story is set in the year 1927, the first year of the new parliament in Canberra (true story).

Story: Prohibition was the brainchild of Minister of Home Affairs, King O’Malley in 1911 and ended a year after the bar in parliament house was opened and following a plebiscite in 1928 (true story). Tonight we will have a debate to decide if prohibition in the ACT should be ended.

Adult Themes: Murder of course. The murder of Walter Burley Griffin.

Costumes: You guests can come dressed as turn of the century types, farmers, police, politicians, protesters, Dame Edna Everage makes an appearance, any Australian stereotype.

How Do Costumes and Characters Work? To make the game as easy as possible to organise your guests do not need to dress as any particular character. The costume they wear does not affect the character they play in the murder mystery. You allocate the murder mystery characters on the night of the party. This means that if guests are sick and can't make it or extra friends want to come then there is no impact on running the game.

Normal Use: Fundraiser, kids 13+, teenage or adult party.

Group Size: 4 to 8, 2 to 15 or 2 to 60.

Canberra is a hotbed of debate and disagreement. Will you survive a night in the nation's capital?
