4-6 Players + 1 Host + Unlimited Investigators
You’ve been invited to a dinner party at the large estate of Lord Bramford - an aristocrat known for his famous soirées and his many mistresses - to celebrate his new union. You and the guests are enjoying the food and drink until you notice that the host himself has gone missing. Upon searching the manor you find Lord Bramford floating facedown in the pool! Was this an accident? Could he have slipped and fell? Or did one of the guests have a secret vendetta? It’s time to unravel the mystery behind the Dinner Party of Demise!
Dinner Party of Demise is an interrogation-based murder mystery. It can be played with 4 - 6 players + 1 host (for this game, we recommend that the host does not also attempt to play one of the roles). Have more than 6 players? Extra players can join as Investigators! The Investigators will be allowed to question any character of their choosing at the end of each round, and will also be able to vote for who they think committed the crime.

Dinner Party of Demise is perfect for anyone looking for an acting-based, investigative team activity!
🔴 Format: This murder mystery can either be played in-person or virtually.
🎭 Acting Requirement: In interrogation-based murder mysteries, players are required to ask open-ended questions to each other in order to uncover clues and inconsistencies in the character's stories. This style of murder mystery requires more acting ability than a script-based murder mystery (but it can also be more fun for the right audience!).
👪 Large Groups: Large groups can play this murder mystery by breaking up into groups of 4-6 Players + 1 Host. A group of 15, for example, could have one game of 8 (6 Players + 1 Host + 1 Investigator) and another of 7 (6 Players + 1 Host) running simultaneously. Otherwise, you could hire us to be the Host and let everyone play in either a Player or Investigator role. The possibilities are endless!
