Dinner and a Murder {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Who doesn’t love a good murder mystery dinner?!  The perfect activity for a cold winter weekend with friends!  My family grew up on games of lying and role playing, like “Mafia”, and my brother actually directs the annual murder mystery event at BYU every year!  So ya, we’re murder-game enthusiasts :).

My husband and I were giddy with excitement about our murder mystery kit from Dinner and a Murder!  I pretty much squealed when I saw the box in our mail.  We got right to work inviting friends to the event.  A neat feature with Dinner and a Murder games is the ability to manage your game online.  I was able to email my guests their invitation, collect their RSVPs, and also email them their character backgrounds.  This was so helpful to keep organized, and it allowed everyone to prepare ahead of time.

This party kit was quite all-inclusive!  It contained character booklets, which gave everyone background information, instructions on how to participate in a murder mystery (which was helpful for a few of us who have never done a murder mystery before), and a guest list so that we could keep everyone else straight.

There was also a confidential booklet for each of us, full of more secrets to spill.  Weapon cards, a host guide, guest list worksheet, evidence presentation, full size evidence, whodunit cards, game money, name tags, solution, tribute, and even certificates for “Best Performer”, “Best Costume”, “Super Sleuth”, and “Wealthiest Player”.

At first I was a little overwhelmed with all the papers and things to read, assemble, and organize, but I’m glad there was so much material to make it a good story—enough to keep guests entertained with things to do and discover for a full 2-3 hours.  Nothing is worse than pinning the murderer 15 minutes into the game!

The night went so well!  We had some excellent actors in attendance, so there was plenty of entertaining moments, including a surprise murder!  What a night!

 Dinner and a Murder carries 8 different murder mystery kits.  We tried “A Killer Reunion“, and I so appreciated that it was a clean version, without affairs or the possibility of really offending a guest.  I’d say it would be appropriate for church groups, teenagers, and even family reunions.  Can’t you just imagine hosting your own murder mystery game?

One winner will receive a $39 eGift Certificate for one Dinner and a Murder game!  Happy Halloween!!

Last Friday night, our home was the scene of a crime.  We had one dead body, ten suspects, delicious food (appetizers, main course, and desserts), and a great time at our murder mystery dinner, courtesy of MerriMysteries.com Murder Mystery Dinner Kits!

I was sent the kit for the Celebrity Celebrations for a party of 8-15 people, and we loved that our characters were celebrities we already knew.  It was easy to dress as the celebrity characters, and we loved that we could watch YouTube videos beforehand to perfect our acting that night.  Here are the characters from that night:

Jimi Hendrix and Marilyn Monroe

Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire

Patsy Cline and John Wayne

Judy Garland and Elvis Presley

Janis Joplin

Hostess and Groucho Marx

My husband and I have done a number of murder mystery dinners in the past, but we both agreed that this kit from MerriMysteries.com had clues that flowed well and were easy-to-read if someone chose to read instead of ad-lib.  The clues were easy to follow but still provided enough of a challenge — only one person correctly guessed “whodunit” that night!

I loved that the kit was sent electronically, meaning that I don’t have to find a place to put the kit if we wanted to do this murder mystery dinner again.  Everything was explained well at the beginning, and it really did not take too much time, energy, or money to put the game together.

If you’re looking for a great time with a group of people (up to 100!), I’d suggest starting at MerriMysteries!
