Frequently Asked Questions

What is it?

What happens at your murder mystery events?

Murder for Hire events are ideal for parties of at least ten participating guests. Some of your guests will be the suspects, one which is the perpetrator of the murder which took place in time before the event. The guests will be given clues and encouraged to mingle and collect information about the suspects to solve the murder. Throughout the party, certain events will occur (maybe even another murder!) that will move the story along. When you book an event with us, we will provide a murder mystery host to make sure things go smoothly, answer any questions you may have, conduct the pacing of the event, and reveal the identity of the murderer at the party’s conclusion.

Can I be a suspect?

Yes! All of the suspects are played by guests, even the murderer! As a suspect, you will be questioned by the other participants about your relationship with the victim, your possible motive, and your whereabouts at the time of the crime.

Can I play a role without being a suspect?

Yes! Some characters are friends and acquaintances of the suspects, and have vital information about them that may be essential to solving the murder. These characters are encouraged to mingle with all the guests and divulge the information they have.

Do I have to play a role as a character?

Not if you don’t want to. You can interact with the characters as yourself, trying to solve the crime along with everyone else.

How long is an event?

Generally between three and four hours long.

Are your events appropriate for children?

The mystery scenarios contain a fair dose of murder and mayhem, including the possibility of secret affairs. We do encourage the participation of teenagers and young adults, but the event probably isn’t suitable for children under 13.

Do you provide the food and the venue?

Although we’d love to be a full-blown event planner, it’s up to you to provide the food and venue for your event. We will provide a great and funny mystery and a murder mystery host.
