Hollywood Scandal is our most popular murder mystery theme. People love to dress as the actor or character they have always dreamed of becoming. Some people even have a glamour night with guests walking the red carpet in their black tie finest.
We chose the Hollywood Scandal murder mystery theme. The games and clues really helped guests to get involved and have fun.
Story: “The Star” has descended upon Hollywood and is determined to hit the big time. The only problem is that so have many other beautiful and handsome potential stars. “The Star” creates many enemies in their quest and ultimately this leads to a tragic death in the cellar. Many people are implicated but only one person is the true murderer. Unravel the story of the cellar, the dangers in the gazebo and the love affair that reaches its height just before the party.
Adult Themes: One character is The Plastic Surgeon.
Costumes: Guests come as their favourite Hollywood actor, personality or character.
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, kids 11+, teenage or adult party.
Group Size: 2 to 15, 2 to 60, 60 to 120.
