It’s the night before the murder mystery party and you have your costume ready to go, but you’re not quite sure what to do once you get there. Thankfully, the costume idea card (or character username and password) given to you by the host is there to help guide you through the basics until you arrive at the mystery.
Near the bottom of the costume idea card is the link for your guest account, which pulls up your character bio along with the setting and crime for the mystery game. Although it’s helpful to know what you’re getting into ahead of time, it isn’t required to play the murder mystery as your host will explain the rules in at the event.
The three personality traits shown in the character’s profile page are there as suggested ways to act while in character. These traits are in no way necessary for having a good time, and can be adjusted however you see fit to make the character more enjoyable during gameplay.
In addition to character traits, the costume suggestions are ideas we came up with that seem to best fit your character. If you have an idea for a better look for your character, feel free to shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org along with a picture of you dressed as the character to help our editors!
Once you arrive at the party you’ll receive the following items: character information card, notepad and pencil, and a name tag that makes you easily recognizable among the other guests.
You’ll know when the murder mystery game has begun, as the host will simulate the sound of a gunshot to startle you and bring your attention to her.
Are you ready to discover the murderer in your group?
