The Program. Your participants guide to the mystery providing the basic plot of the mystery, the primary suspect list and the “rules” of the game – all the info they need will be right in front of them at all times. Click here for a sample.
The Detective’s Evidence Record (solution sheet). They’ll fill this out as the mystery progresses and hand it in at the end of the mystery before the killer is revealed.
Secondary Suspect Instructions (optional). EVERYONE will be actively involved in this mystery because it will be their job to solve the case and because you’ll be encouraging them to come in costume and in character. Use any or all of the secondary suspects included with each mystery game if you have “extra” cast members you want to use or if you have some guests who want to take on a character but not take on the full responsibility of a primary suspect.
Additional Character Names (optional). For guests not assigned as a primary or secondary suspect. They can have fun creating their own character (and costume) from the name you give them. Their primary role will be that of detective.
