Murder Mystery Meal

It's the 1920's and a group of socialites are on a winter train journey. All is well until the train is delayed by a snowdrift and worse still one of the passengers is found murdered. It's up to remaining 9 guests to find the culprit before they make their escape.

I intend to run a murder mystery game for 8 people where we solve a case over a 3 course dinner. I have contacted the pub and they are happy to provide vegi and vegan options to our group in addition to the main menu. The food is good quality pub grub and three courses should set up back no more than 20 pounds. You are feel to order what you like if you don't want 3 courses. We have the table booked all night so we can follow the dinner with some drinks.

The game is easy to play. Those interested must pick one of the following characters ( first come first served ), they will play this character all night and there are rounds where each character has clues to reveal and evidence to give which will allow the murderer to be brought to justice. Characters: 4 men -upper class nitwit,middle/eastern merchant, irish gambler, scottish gentleman and 4 women -party girl,american journalist, snobbish lady and nun. All characters are wild sterotypes and should be easy and fun to play,cross dressing allowed. Dressing as the character is very much encouraged. RSVP but email me with your address and character choice and I will send you a booklet which outlines the rules and some details about you. I will update as characters filled.

The game needs at least 6 players to go ahead. One of you will be the murderer and will discover this during the game. My email [masked]. We will eat at 7 after a cocktail and introductions. I expect the game will last around 2 hours. Please only RSVP if you are certain you can commit to attend. Email questions if you like.

      Thanks Steve. It's a massive shame as I had such an enjoyable evening and the food was lovely. I do feel better today thanks and managed to go to work today but I was so ill all day yesterday. Tbh it might not have been the pork itself but definitely something on that dish as lots of carrot and brocalli came back up! Anyway thank you for hosting - it honestly was brilliant. If you pm me your address I'll get my friend Katy to post you the character profile. She was really sorry she couldn't come but her car got towed away

    Hello all, i am just getting to ready to go. i will be at the venue from 5.30 if anybody wants to meet for a drink before hand. If you don't know me I will be dressed for dinner and at the bar. Kathryn, sorry i couln't scan over docs, techinical problem. It won't make any difference you can read up the necessary just before we start. I intend to take seats for meal at 7 or if everybody is earlier then when ever everybody is ready. We don't need to rush and can stay at the table all night If we like. see you all soon.

    Travel to venue. For those needing advice the venue is well served with buses. The indigo, no4, I4, rainbow, 36 and most buses to aspley stop almost just about outside, ask for canning circus. It's a 10 min walk from the council hse or vic centre and about 15 from the rail station or broadmarsh ( all uphill on the way sadly). It would be pretty much minimum fare for a taxi from the city centre ranks.
