In the quiet Scottish Island of Islayabout nothing ever happens. Life goes on, much as it has for countless years, springtime, tourist season, harvest, Hogmanay, Burns Night. Island life is tranquil and the islanders peaceable. At least they all thought they were.

This afternoon the whisky baron of Glen Frick Whisky distillery, Toby Mory, was found in a vat full of his finest Malt! And he wasn't treading water while he sampled the latest batch - oh no! He was dead - murdered no less!

Not only has the news of his death rocked the island, but it now appears one of the more colourful local residents could be the person responsible for Toby Mory's untimely demise. The question is: Which one is it?

Never run a murder mystery before? Then don't panic!

There is no special acting required. Guests do not need to memorise any information, and everything they need to play their parts is provided to them in a handy printable booklet. The games are constructed so that everyone has to interact, and scripted dialogues are included to help break the ice and get everyone into character. Even total novices get into the swing of things quite quickly!

The game includes the option of, either a sound file, or a script for Detective Inspector u.b. McNicked who provides the setting, clues, and summaries for each round, as well as the final solution. Which means as host, you too can play and remain completely in the dark as to the culprit. However, with a large group - it should be noted that the addition of a "real" inspector really helps the enquiry!

To try and create a game that doesn't last 5 hours, the witnesses included in this game (characters 13-20) only have one answer each round rather than two. 

Our murder mystery kits contain:

  • Instructions for running the murder mystery.
  • Making the most of your theme- ideas for decoration / activities.
  • Invitations.
  • Character Booklets.
  • Iinspector booklet
  • CD for Inspector (dialogue and solution).
  • Hints and tips.
  • Recipe suggestions.
  • Money off voucher towards next purchase.

  • Sexual Themes - Mild references to dating.

  • Crude Humour - Depictions or dialogue involving vulgar antics, including “bathroom” humour
