ADULT MURDER MYSTERY GAMES (+18)

Curse of the Pharaoh

The Valley of the Kings, Luxor, Egypt. 23 April 1894. The excavation season will soon be over, as the baking sun makes digging unbearable, but the Oxford University archaeologists lead by Sir William Saville have made a startling discovery. Tonight, the team and their guests prepare to enjoy a slap-up dinner to celebrate the uncovering of the tomb of a previously unknown XVIth Dynasty pharaoh. But while the archaeologists make merry, dark clouds gather, internal tensions among the group burst to the surface and one of the local diggers is brutally murdered.

 

On the evening of the game the guests are met by the organizer, the archaeological team's native servant. They then receive their detailed backgrounds - including dark secrets, objectives and money. When everyone has arrived the servant announces that, with the corpse tidied away into the camel shed for safekeeping, dinner will now be served. The fun then begins as everyone questions, bribes and blackmails each other. As the evening progresses they may even try to murder one another! Depending on what the players choose to do, there are several different possible endings, but finally everyone finds out how they did, and what secrets everyone else was concealing.

Curse of the Pharaoh lasts for about four hours and is suited to an evening. It is often played over a meal -- a finger buffet if possible to allow guests to circulate and talk in private.

"I enjoyed it [Curse of the Pharaoh] very much and must say congrats to you for creating a great storyline."
Mark Doney, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom

Curse of the Pharaoh is now available in an expanded version for up to 19 players plus a host. Ideal for larger parties! This expanded version Costs just £25.00.

Curse of the Pharaoh is a dinner party murder mystery game for 6 to 9 guests (or up to 19 with the expansion pack) and a host.

Curse of the Pharaoh is one of our more complex and intricately plotted games, and we don't recommend it if you're new to this kind of murder mystery party game. On the other hand, if you're a veteran you should find it highly satisfying!

Casino Fatale

On the banks of the River Seine in Paris is the Hotel D'Etoile, with a casino named the Casino Fatale. Rumour has it that the casino is connected to the mysterious underworld character 'Mr X'. No one seems to know exactly who the elusive Mr X is, or what he looks like - and there are many people who would love to know. Among those trying to find Mr X are Interpol, the local police, the local organized crime family, and the agents of several countries in which Mr X is believed to operate. Tonight, however, a charity auction is being held at Casino Fatale and it has drawn all sorts to the casino - playboys, starlets, maybe even a jewel thief… Who will you play?

At Casino Fatale you will discover the following:

· Who is the 'Black Panther'?

· Why should you be very careful with your jewellery?

· Who killed scientist Dr Havelott, and where are his plans for a nuclear device?

· Who is the mysterious 'Mr X'?

· Can Donovan Jones really write poetry?

· ...and is the casino really up for sale?

Casino Fatale is a dinner party murder mystery game for 15 to 20 guests Costs £20.00 and one or two hosts, (or up to 30 with the expansion pack) and one or two hosts.

Casino Fatale lasts for about four hours and is suited to an evening. It is often played over a meal -- a finger buffet if possible to allow guests to circulate and talk in private.

"The [Casino Fatale] party was great -- thanks so much for your help! This was the first murder mystery I've hosted so I was anxious that it go well - anyway, fantastic night, definitely going to do another one!"
Daniel Hesford, Lancashire, United Kingdom

Casino Fatale is now available in an expanded version for up to 30 players plus one or two hosts. Ideal for larger parties! This expanded version costs just £30.00.

Casino Fatale is unlike many murder mystery games. Although the game starts with a murder, most of the characters have more important things to do than to investigate it. And the killing may not be over - it is unlikely that everyone will survive the remainder of the evening!

Casino Fatale is played just like a murder mystery game. You may be trying to solve the murder, but primarily you are (initially at least) concentrating on your own goals and objectives. Unlike most boxed murder mystery games, Casino Fatale lets you decide how to achieve your goals and thwart your enemies.

On the evening of the game the guests are met by the organizer, the Casino Events Manager. They then receive their detailed backgrounds - including dark secrets, objectives and caino gambling chips. When everyone has arrived the host announces that the glittering evening and charity auction will now proceed. The fun then begins as everyone questions, bribes and blackmails each other. As the evening progresses they may even try to murder one another! Depending on what the players choose to do, there are several different possible endings, but finally everyone finds out how they did, and what secrets everyone else was concealing.

Although we recommend looking first at the games for kids' parties, plenty of people have run the other games for their kids anyway, sometimes with a bit of adaptation!
