In March 2020 MurderedforMoney began to entertain audiences in the virtual world with great success. If your guests are unable to come together in one location why not bring them together online.
How do virtual murder mystery events work?
Prior to the event
Your guests will receive three sets of video footage, clues and puzzles relating to the crime. These can be viewed at a time convenient to individuals or at a set time agreed by yourself. Usually the emails are sent out one per day for the three days immediately prior to the interrogation event, however this can be adjusted depending on the preferences of your guests.
The day of the event
On the day of the live interrogation your guests will join the detective and suspects live, via Zoom video conferencing, to solve the crime.
You and your guests will be welcomed into the Zoom conference by the detective who will explain the format of the event. If you are playing in teams, your host will then place each teams in a separate virtual meeting rooms to discuss clues, initial theories and prepare lines of questioning. (approx 20-30 minutes)
After this preparation time, you have two options.
Option 1: Your host will bring everyone back into the main interrogation room where you will be joined by the detective and suspects. You will have up to 45 minutes to interrogate the suspects.
Option 2: Suspects will rotate individually or in pairs between the breakout rooms so they can be interrogated by smaller groups of guests
Whichever approach you choose:
- Be sure to watch and listen very carefully:
- Use skillful questioning to reveal more clues and break or confirm alibis
- Observe the body language for clues as to who may be lying
Following the interrogation your guests/teams will have between 20 and 30 minutes to discuss what they have heard and to agree and submit their answer to the question(s) who-dunnit and why.!
When all solutions are in, all will be revealed and the winners announced.
Time commitment: Approximately two hours
Preparation: Due to the complexity of our mysteries, we recommend team members get together online/phone prior to the interrogation event to discuss their thoughts and theories.
