Murder Mystery Party Game for Adults

Read this post on your language:

Host a Murder Mystery game in your party mansion, and let the amateur detectives figure out whodunit.

Materials Needed:
  • Simple mystery based on ideas from two-minute mystery books or mystery games
  • Clues and red herrings to ho with the mystery
  • Paper
  • Pencils, 1 for each player
Play this one of the most popular party games for adults for 30-45 minutes.

How to Play:

1. Concoct a simple mystery using ideas found in puzzle books or mystery games. For example: There is a dead body in the library, he has bled to death, but there are no murder weapons, only a pool of water beneath the body. How did he die?

2. Set up a crime scene to go with your mystery. For example: Make a body outline with masking tape, and give some clues (a puddle of water) and red herrings ( a half-eaten chocolate, a note to a lover, a check made out to a blackmailer, and so on). Close off the crime scene with yellow crepe paper.

3. When the players arrive, assign them detective identities, such as Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot, Nancy Drew, Joe Hardy, Cordelia Grey, Sherlock Holmes, Kinsey Milhone, Sam Spade, and so on.

4. Give the players paper and pencils, and let them study the scene.

5. Tell everyone to write down the murderer, weapon, method, and motive.

6. Then have the detectives read their answers aloud (many will be humorous) and see who came closest to solving the mystery.


Stage a live-action sequence during which someone suddenly drops dead. Then have the players solve the murder.
