Over the past 10 years, we have run this unique dinner party to great laughter and lasting memories! It’s been perfect for hen’s parties, birthdays, anniversaries and even corporate team building.
These parties require a minimum of 8 participants as we have 8 characters (4 females and 4 males). Set in various countries, eras and situations, these games are perfect to break the ice and get to know your friends or colleagues in a different light.
The game is played over 4 courses so part of the menu is served at each round. Each participant comes dressed up in character and assumes the character throughout the entire event. It takes anywhere from 3 to 4 hours to play this game as it depends on their speed and understanding of each situation. At each course, more and more clues are revealed and by the end of the 4 rounds, the players guess who they think killed the main character (the main character is not part of the 8 participants).
Are you excited? Here are some of the murder mystery games we currently hold at Palate Sensations:
