Dinner with Murder is an experience that allows you to combine gastronomy with an interactive, fun and, above all, highly engaging game. A kind of the evolution of the classic dinner show that directly involves participants.
It all revolves around solving a murder mystery, examining clues and evidence that will lead to a final winner: the one who first, through his or her own intuition and investigations, will be able to identify the culprit of the terrible murder.
Definitely an evening out of the imagination, sparkling and fun. An opportunity to get to know and interact with others in a course that can engage from the first beat and to the last second. Let’s see if we succeed in stimulating your imagination as well as your appetite!
How does a murder mystery dinner take place?
Some restaurants organize these events through the collaboration of theater companies, while others choose to put Agatha Christie ‘s works into practice by following a specific pattern.
Everything is taken care of in detail, from the characters to the environments, creating real scripts. You don’t need to be an actor to get into the part: it will be a direct involvement. A detective story that will start with the discovery of a fictional murder.
Each present embodies a figure or is part of a group such as the team of policemen and detectives who must ask the questions. Unmissable is the presence of a narrator who explains the story and guides participants throughout the game with details, through a narrative path that leads the various teams to get to the heart of the matter and find the killer, reconstructing the entire plot.
In fact, the murder mystery dinner not only aims to track down the murderer, but also to construct all the details along the way, like a kind of puzzle. This is precisely what makes it so compelling: it is a real enigma.
Why participate in a murder mystery dinner?
Murder dinners are not only a winning idea for lovers of murder mysteries and thrillers, but also engaging evenings for those who feel like attending a murder party, typically English. All participants are involved, the investigation is done in first person so it is both an intellectual challenge and an engaging game.
One must focus on deductive reasoning to solve the puzzle: players, therefore, play a very specific and active role just like Live Action Role Playing.
To make the evening compelling you need a worthy plot, but also a special setting.
It is possible to participate in the Classic Mystery, or Agatha Christie style, where everything focuses on the plot of the story or the Historical Mystery which is marked more by a framework that retraces Umberto Eco and a genre where the moment in which everything takes place is decisive.
The evening always opens with a murder that has been committed: then participants are brought up to speed with the case files, witnesses, all the details of the case, and the material that is provided. At that point it is necessary to define the crime well to understand when it happened and put the pieces together.
The victim must be investigated , who he was and what he did. Then make a list of suspects and then figure out who the culprit is and what the motive is.
Questions and one’s own intuition will be crucial in figuring out who committed the murder. The final moment will be amusing, even if it is not realized firsthand who did it. An intellectual challenge, a time of conviviality that combines the pleasure of the table with play, a way to work together and come to identify what happened and who did it.
Murder dinners are always by reservation: you can attend individually or book with a group of friends and relatives.
Since it is a nice way to meet new people, it is also fun to participate on your own so you can be included in some groups.
The menu can be in line with the theme of the evening or retrace a specific historical period; in general it will always relate to the delicacies of the region.
The game takes place seated, but there can also be traveling dinners or otherwise involving the audience in some action. In this case it will always take place between courses without disturbing the dinner anyway. The actors eat with the audience in the same room: so the timing is the same.
On average, the murder mystery dinner is held with a variable number of participants, between 30 and 150 always divided into groups. The room is decorated with a theme, and the music is light so as not to disturb and, most importantly, to allow everyone to get a clear understanding of what to do. There is always a prize up for grabs, this can be a gadget, a gift voucher or a coupon.
