Every event can be a little different depending on the amount of people, venue, etc...but the general idea is this. You and your friends/coworkers/whoever get together at a place. It will be set up like a social gathering, usually at a restaurant or private meeting room, so it feels social. You all get drinks, food, whatever you want, and CR Mystery Dinners handles the timeline of events.
Each attendee will be given a character assignment. Basically you get a little info about the person you are playing. One character will be told they are the murderer on their card, but KEEP IT A SECRET!
At predetermined intervals your host will announce things...someone has been murdered...or maybe pieces of evidence have just been found.
You will socialize with the other characters over drinks and/or food until you have figured out who the culprit is. Many events also have a money element where you can bribe the other guests to get information about their character's whereabouts during the murder.
The best part about these events is that you can do and say whatever you want. Be who you want, make things up, lie, cheat, and steal your way to find...or covering up the truth. The best events are the ones where people have no idea what to say, but just get in their character's role and roll with it.
That is really up to you! We can do Wild West themes for 10-20 people and we have a 1920's theme for 10-50 people. The real thing to know is that these events are customizable, and we have the storylines, and character assignments for you. All you have to do is tell us what you want, how many people you have, and we can find something that works.
The cost can vary depending on your event...but if you want everyone to pay for their own food and drinks with the venue directly...tickets for the event are usually $25 per person.
We can customize events if you prefer as well with food or drink included. For more info...
