Murder Mystery Group

Group Leader: Valerie T 01637 852162 /07889 660785 / vtnewquayu3a@gmail.com

Take part in a Murder Mystery Party Game held usually at the Lanherne in the restaurant. 6-12 part games available, therefore limited numbers for each session. Please contact the group leader if you are interested in taking part, or watching. The events will be organised at suitable intervals to be decided according to the mutual availability of the people who want to take part and the organiser.

If you have never played these games before, to give you an idea of what actually happens at these sessions, you will be assigned a part to play, then usually follow a script which will give you clues to solve the mystery of who the murderer/murderesss could be. It could be you! As an example, these are the parts in one of the Murder Mystery Games:

"Death by Chocolate"

It’s 15th April 1900, Easter Sunday, and Paris is the centre of world attention as millions of visitors arrive for the opening this weekend of the International Exposition.
Amongst them is an elite but diverse group of individuals staying at the Hotel Paradiso. As they gather for dinner, however, the peace of the hotel is rocked by an explosion. Billy Bonka, the foremost chocolate manufacturer in America, is found dead in his room, having apparently been killed by an exploding Easter Egg. Suspicion falls on the people around this table.
One, or more, of you is a murderer. Your task is to discover who that killer is. Fortunately the famous amateur detective Hercule McClue is on hand to assist your investigations.

The suspects are:-

‘CHOCOLATE’ BERTRAND – You are the greatest legend of the Belgian chocolate industry, debonair, but tough. Costume suggestion: Evening suit, elegant and understated.

MARCHIONESS DUCHAMP – You are an internationally notorious artist, whose work has scandalised two continents, and whose private life has done much the same. Costume suggestion: Dress in free-flowing, slightly exotic clothes in rich colours (purples, deep reds) with silver jewellery and a silk scarf.

MARIA VON SCHNAPPS – You are a young businesswoman who has just taken over as head of a long-established Swiss chocolate firm. Costume suggestion: A formal evening dress, suggesting quiet sophistication.

MIKE BISON – You are the rising star of American boxing, and you have come to Paris for the Olympic Games. Costume suggestion: Jeans and a white vest, with a plaid shirt worn open on top. A temporary tattoo or two would be useful, as would a black eye (using makeup).

DAME BARBARA CARTHORSE – You are the most celebrated beauty in England, as well as being a hugely popular romantic novelist. Costume suggestion: A very grand evening dress, complete with spectacular jewellery and a tiara. Nothing should be understated.

DR DORIS JOHNSON – You are an amateur archaeologist specialising in the Aztec culture, and something of an eccentric. Costume suggestion: A long velvet cloak and floppy hat with feathers in it. Reading glasses on a chain around your neck would be good – a pince-nez or monocle even better.

DR SIGMUND FRAUD – You are a controversial psychologist from Vienna, much distrusted by conventional society. Costume suggestion: Brown, three-piece suit with a bow tie. A beard would add considerably to the image, and a cigar (as a prop) would also help.

LITTLE FITZ – You are the star of the Music Halls of Europe, where your ventriloquist act (with your dummy, Ziggy) has proved very popular. Costume suggestion: A very loud check suit, preferably in brown, with a novelty bow tie. It is vital that you have a dummy with you. This can be anything from a genuine ventriloquist’s dummy to a glove puppet.

Corny or what? Yes, but great fun. Why not join us? You don't have to dress up, but we would love it if you do!
