Themes & Stories

What Will the Plot be for Your Murder Mystery?

Each theme was designed for a certain number of main characters or participants. To accommodate more participants, we can add investigators, witnesses, or distribute administrative duties [a guest(s) read pages with evidence or character introductions].

Perhaps you can’t decide on which theme is best. We can discuss the options with you based on your group. If more than one theme looks good, you could also book your next event with us to solve another themed mystery. 

If you do not find the theme that would be best for you, please let us know. We can discuss options based on your group, or we may be able to purchase an additional theme for your group’s needs.
