Two murder mystery games to try out at your Halloween party

By Sherry Dryja

With Halloween around the corner, many of you may be looking for an excuse to throw a costume party. Why not add a layer of hilarity by making it a murder mystery party too? For tips on hosting a murder mystery party, check out my article about FreeForm Games.

Murder Mystery parties can bring out the flapper in everyone–even the dog! (Excuse the red-eye!)

If you’re looking for a game more centered around a dinner table, but which gets your guests in costume and character, try Daggerville games. Although I have not tested these games myself, they do look like fun and they appear to be fairly easy to organize.

Also, if you’re a blogger, and you’re interested in doing a review for Daggerville, email Martin at
