Choose Your Murder Mystery Theme
You can choose from two different virtual murder mystery experiences for your event, both with the same structure but differing storylines.
Choose one option below:
Option 1 - Manor House Murder
Similar to a game of Cluedo, the Manor House Murder is a classic case of “Who Done It” in which your staff members will be the detectives. Our remote event manager will provide each group with a floor plan of Cadaver Manor and witness cards to help you find out who murdered internationally renowned lawyer, Laura Norder. Your groups will need to work together to rule out each “witness” and capture the killer before they leave the manor for good!
Option 2 - Murder of the Train
A pristine train travelling from Paris to Constantinople in the 1920s is the background of a shocking, grizzly murder! Your crew of detectives will board the train at Belgrade to start the investigation into who murdered the victim somewhere between Budapest and Belgrade. Gather evidence, clues and witness statements from other passengers before the murderer strikes again onboard.
