Finding a murder mystery party game and icebreaker my friends will love.

My friends and I had fun playing those games where we were each a character and one of us was the murderer. There were some things that frustrated them about those games though, so I decided to write my own.

These murder mystery games for 6-12 players draw you into the vivid world of a mystery where you can explore any avenue of clues, whenever you want, and can ask all sorts of questions of all the characters. The stories feel real and evoke emotions like jealousy, envy, greed and excitement and some players will lie.

Murder Happens games are deisgned to work like icebreakers . At the end of your murder mystery party you and your friends will either have solved the mystery, or feel like you came very close.

Would you like to put on this kind of immersive, intriguing game for you friends?

This group is having way too much fun. click to watch.

Hand crafted Murder Mystery party games you play at home for 8-12 players who dress up as their characters. One of them is the murderer and the others must figure out who that is. A great icebreaker you can play over dinner and snacks  with your friends.

These carefully written, unusual mysteries, are fun and easy to play, though challenging to solve. As the drama unfolds, the clues flow naturally as the story unfolds as you question the other characters.  The players end up acting their parts without even trying. There are romances, skeletons in closets, shady goings on, and everyone will laugh as the human comedy plays out. You will lie, make accusations, and follow the clues where they lead with no artificial game breaks or reveals, and only two easy rules to follow. Your friends will have a blast.

At the end of the game you will either solve the mystery, or feel like you almost did. Either way you will enjoy the story and the hunt. Your party will be an absolute success because it’s so easy to host.
