Love the outback of Australia? The dust, the long winding roads and the infinite number of places to bury a body? Don't be shy, pay us a visit in Wolfe Creek!
We had a Wolfe Creek party we had in the Jordanian desert - a great success and was really well received by all! We chose a beautiful little spot in Wadi Rum desert, had a bonfire, dressed as Australians (as best people knew how), and was watched the whole evening by rather bemused bedouin locals and a camel or two. It's not the first time I've organised a Murder Mystery party and they always prove incredibly popular!
Setting: Wolfe Creek Crater and places in the Western Australian and Northern Territory Outback.
Story: Where is everyone? We all wanted to work on a WA goldfield or in a bar but it seems that we have all been kidnapped and have woken up in some dark dingy cave. Sydney Harbour is a known kidnapper and killer but this time he has gone too far. He thinks he is smart, but he gets killed by one of his own victims. Will your guests be able to escape the depravity of Sydney Harbour and get out of Wolfe Creek?
Adult Themes: Backpacker abduction.
Costumes: Guests come dressed as a roustabout, truck driver, bar fly, barmaid, police officer, backpacker, serial killer or any other 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: This is only suitable for a 15+ audience. If you have seen the movie Wolf Creek you will know what I mean!
Group Size: 2 to 15, 2 to 60, 60 to 120.
Will your backpacker visa and the local police be enough to save you from Wolfe Creek?

What is the difference between Dinner Edition and Premium Edition Games?
Premium Edition games are the ultimate in interactive fun. They are a full night of entertainment and require a host (friend or hired) to run them. Your guests work in teams to solve the crime and there is heaps of mingling and sleuthing fun. If you want an amazing night your friends will remember for ever, Murder In A Box Premium Edition games are the way to go.
