1. What if I want to have more than 8 people attend my mystery party?

1. What if I want to have more than 8 people attend my mystery party?

The mystery parties work very successfully with larger parties too. Many clubs and other groups have done them with as many as 50-80 attending. Guests that do not have roles to play can still enjoy the humor and antics of the role playing characters. They can ask questions, ad-lib remarks, etc. At the end of the party, everyone gets to vote as to who they think is the “culprit.” Everyone gets involved.

I personally attended a ladies golf club luncheon when they did one of the mysteries. All the “characters” arrived at once, making a grand entrance. They paraded into the dining room, in costumes and wigs, causing quite a sensation. The Hostess set the stage for the mystery, and one by one at various times during the luncheon, the “characters” came up to the microphone and told their story. Then at the end, everyone voted. It was very successful.

Another way to do it for a very large group is to have the role players sit at various tables scattered throughout the dining room. Then at the appropriate time, they stand and give their story from their table. They stay “in character” all the time they are at their table, answering questions from the other guests.

3. How long does a party last?

The mysteries are designed to take place during the serving of a tea party or lunch. We suggest 3 parts to be given during scones or salad, 3 during the main entrée, and 2 during desert, followed by the voting. This usually takes about one and a half hours.
