Eighties Extermination 1980s

Author: Murder Mystery  Date: 09 February 2024

Wax on, blood off!

Did you grow up during or live through the 1980s? This decade was filled with Heavy Metal Rock bands like Guns 'n' Roses and Mötley Crüe, as well as iconic movies like The Karate Kid, Sixteen Candles, Back to the Future, and Dirty Dancing. If you're looking for the ultimate party experience, Eighties Extermination is the perfect murder mystery game for you!


Ah, we have bought from you before, so that should work well! Good to see you making it available for online play. We did Serial killers and Tracy Gang. We will try the 80s game this time.


What an amazing trip back in time. It was like being a teenager all over again!

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.

The Story

Setting: The Eighties Extermination story involves characters at a generic event. The story involves a performance of Mötley Crüe. As a result you could set your party in a 1980s Disco, Prom, Concert, Party, Reunion or any other gathering of people where a band would play.

Story: We are gathering for the party of the decade. I hear a rumour that Mötley Crüe will be playing and Sixteen Candles are all it takes to bring this party Back to the Future. KITT loves Mötley Crüe and will do anything to meet them. This puts KITT in an embarrassing situation as Donkey Kong and Flashdance watch on.

Adult Themes: There are no specifically adult themes in this story. The murdered victim has to wear a girl's underpants (taken from Sixteen Candles) and there is mention of the antidepressant Prozac (invented in the 80s).

Costumes: Guests come as their favourite 1980s icon e.g. Tina Turner, Axl Rose, the Karate Kid.

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: Hens night, fundraiser or adult party.

Group Size: 2 to 15, 2 to 60, 60 to 120.

Will you take your DeLorean Back to the Future and survive a night in 1980?
