    Of course! Assuming you can give us a heads up, a specialist can email you a few extra parts. You can call 1.206.414.0453 or email info@host-a-murder.com

    **We do our best to accomodate last minute requests assuming we are near a computer and have internet access.

  • What do i do if a guest cancels before the event?

    No problem! If someone cancels before your murder mystery event just open your "critcal character" card. It will tell you the people that "must" play in your mystery. If the missing guest is listed on that page you will want to be sure that you have another "non critical" person fill in and play that role.

  • How long should the party last?

    The more people you have the longer it will last. A party of 12 will last an hour / a party of 60 will last for three hours. The length of time is also determined by your schedule. People tend to play for the amount of time provided to them-- we call it the rule of procrastination.

If you would rather not lift a finger in the execution of your mystery and want one of our On-Site Host's to be there the evening of your party.

  • Can a host play in the mystery?

    A:  Of the course the host can play! Any critical information is concealed in sealed envelopes so you can play a role just like everyone else and NOT know who the murderer is.
