Choose Your Murder Mystery Theme

You can choose from three 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 on 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.

Option 3 - Murder on the Slopes (Festive)

While holiday makers take on the slopes, you're tasked with a gritty murder investigation with the clock ticking! Work together with your crew of investigators to sift through witness reports and hidden clues in the snowy setting. Will you be able to find the murderous culprit before your time runs out? There is more information on the Virtual Murder on the Slopes activity.

What is the Aim of the Virtual Murder Mystery?

The aim of the game is simple; piece together the evidence, catch a killer and solve the crime, all before you run out of time.

How Does the Virtual Murder Mystery Online Work?

The remote host starts with a virtual briefing explaining the background and setting the mood. Teams will then be confronted with a sequence of witness cards and a details depending on your chosen mystery theme.

From there, each participant will be able to use a simple app on their smartphone device to search for clues, challenges, and evidence by tapping on objects. Search the many different rooms and click on the witness cards to uncover more evidence.

After a year in which we experienced two of the inevitable lockdown quizzes and a couple of ‘virtual escape room’ experiences, the murder mystery experience was by far the best. Breaking down into teams and allowing people to use smartphones alongside chats made the game’s progress much smoother.
