If you love kings, queens, epic battles, torture, medieval times and the dark ages then you will love Medieval Madness.
Regicide, noun, /ˈrɛdʒɪsʌɪd/ is the purposeful killing of a monarch or sovereign often associated with the usurpation of power. In this case, an evil queen, Queen Madge Estee has been horrible to her people and has to go.
Setting: The dark ages and the medieval period. The story starts on the battle field and ends in a castle.
Story: Two rival dynasties are at loggerheads but will the evil Queen Madge Estee win? After a full day of epic battle the victors have returned to the castle to feast and celebrate their win. However, things quickly turn sour as our Queen is poisoned and falls dead to the floor.
Adult Themes: Drinking of mead wine.
Costumes: Guests come dressed as knights, lords, ladies, peasants, jesters, kings, queens, soldiers, blacksmiths, donkey, horse, squires or any medieval 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 11+, teenage or adult party.
Group Size: 4 to 8, 2 to 15, 2 to 60, 60 to 120.
Will you survive a glorious battle in honour of your Queen?
