Who Shot Santa?
Every year the company Christmas party got worse and worse. The food was usually awful and the music was an earful, but no one ever expected this! Linda the new girl from accounting was in charge of the planning this year, and she decided to go with an 80's themed party. It was a bit wacky and wild- and everyone was really excited. There was tons of amazing food and lots of funny costumes. Of course she had to hire someone to play Santa. It was a tradition in the company; Santa would pass out the Christmas bonuses to all of the employees. Click Here to find out more.
White Christmas Colorado
The Hotkin’s Christmas party was legendary. There were always lots of food and music, and the most amazing apple tarts you have ever had in your life! Family and friends would gather in their large Aspen cabin for a night to sing carols and reconnect. With the children off at college, this year was particularly special. Now the family had its secrets, and there was no denying the tension that existed. Affairs, drugs, unplanned pregnancies, blackmail, and lying were only a few of the skeletons in the Hotkins closet. Many of the family members were estranged, and only saw each other on Christmas. They do their best to remain civilized for the few hours that they are together each year.

Out With The Old
The Bromley’s New Year’s Eve parties were legendary. Every year they picked a different theme and went out all. This year it was “Viva Las Vegas” and their home was decorated to the hilt. In the garage stood a craps table, the living room was the black jack den, poker was played in the dining room, and an authentic roulette wheel stood in the family room. They even hired an Elvis impersonator for the night! Click Here to find out more.
How Blue Murder Games Work
Blue Murder games are fully interactive and it is recommended that players are given the freedom to move around and chat to everyone involved in the game. To this end, if food is being served, then a buffet style set-up is probably the best - especially if large numbers are involved. The key to a successful party is communication between guests.

Murder Mystery GamesWith A Twist!
Blue Murder Games supply you with a plot, you add the party, the people and the fun.
These are murder mystery games with a difference -
solving the murder is only part of the game and depending on your character, may well be the least of your worries.
Imaginative settings, which range from 1970s Glam Rock to American high-society balls, provide the backdrop for your game. Throw in some dubious characters, blackmail, double-dealing, hidden identities and, of course, murder and the scene is set for your guests to pit their wits against each other as they race to complete their tasks, protect their secrets and solve the murder.
