8 Players + 1 Host + Unlimited Investigators
Welcome to an evening with Don Salvatore, a notorious mafioso who’s invited you to enjoy an evening of drinks, cards, and conversation at La Braceria, his personal bar. Suddenly his consigliere, Vinnie "Chuckles" Cacciatore, stiffened in his seat, made a choked gurgling noise, and fell over dead at the bar, clutching at his throat. Now it's up to all of you to figure out what happened to the Don's right hand man!
The Inside Job is a script-based murder mystery. It can be played with 8 Players + 1 Host (for this game, we recommend that the host does not also attempt to play one of the roles). Have more than 8 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.

The Inside Job is perfect for anyone looking for a dramatic, interrogative team activity!
🔴 Format: This murder mystery can either be played in-person or virtually.
🎭 Acting Requirement: In script-based murder mysteries, players simply need to read the script that has been provided to them and then use the clues provided to solve the murder. This style of murder mystery requires little to no acting ability and is ideal for those who have never played a murder mystery before.
👪 Large Groups: Large groups can play this murder mystery by breaking up into groups of 9 (8 Players + 1 Host). Groups of odd numbers, like 10 for example, could have 8 Players + 1 Host + 1 Investigator. Otherwise, you could hire us to be the Host and let everyone play in either a Player or Investigator role. The possibilities are endless!

We’ll then share the character information with each individual player a few days before the event to give everyone a chance to familiarize themselves with their character.
On the day of the event, our Host will join via video conference and will lead the activity from start to finish. Our goal is to make your overall experience as seamless and as fun as possible!

If you let us know at least 72 hours in advance, then we’ll be happy to reschedule for free (woohoo!). However, if you let us know less than 72 hours in advance, then a 20% rescheduling fee will apply because we’ll have to compensate our hosts for rescheduling their time (it’s just the right thing to do).
