murder mystery party 05.
1920's theme. i wrote the whole game thing cause we're too cheap to buy a kit. we played like this: everyone got an invitation (that my friend kevin insisted on charring beyond readablity) and in the invite they were given a brief character description and ideas for attire.  then at the party people mingled, and then- oh horror- someone was killed. in the treehouse out back. and there were some clues at the scene. so neil (the corpse) was a good sport and layed in the tree house for two hours while we figured out who did it.  and i had hidden clues all over the room and you had to find them but not obviously hunt for them? and you still had to mingle around.  alliances were formed and it was terrific. in the end, the mystery was solved and we jumped on a trampoline.

not the best pictures...just a group shot (cause we had good costumes) and the stack of plastic glasses haha. it was just a fun party.

if anyone wants the clues and more info i'd be happy to email it to them Grin


personal swaps please!

In my high school American Lit class, a friend and I had no idea what to do our final Gatsby project on... the night before it was due, we still had nothing.  So we started making brownies.  Then we decided that we could have a murder mystery party!

We didn't plan a damn thing, we brought fake champagne, brownies and plastic champagne flutes, dressed up and pulled it off without any thought.  Our teacher had us come to the other AmLit class to do the same thing.  We got an A plus extra credit for that.

It was fun, though.. plus I got out of chemistry for it.  Score.

God, that feels like it was so long ago... eight years isn't that long, is it?

Sounds like you had a lot of fun. I would love the clues.  Did you serve food?

I've been wanting to have a murder mystery party for so long.  It sounds like yours was a blast!  I wouldn't mind seeing the clues and all that to see how you made it yourself.
