A detective adventure…

On Sunday, November 23, the Vermont police received a panicked call from someone who had been staying at the Thompson’s Manor on the occasion of their wedding anniversary.
Mrs Thompson was found dead in her room and the cause of death is unknown. There are no signs of forced entry, but there are many elements to be analysed in order to solve this mystery.

What does the Escape Kit “The Mysterious Murder” contain?

MURDER PARTY ESCAPE ROOM AT HOME_ESCAPE KIT
detective

Small or large group, The mysterious murder is suitable for all situations

Birthdays, team-building, evening with friends, bachelorette party...

Whether it’s a birthday party, an evening with friends or even a team-building event, our Escape Kit can be played with 2 or with dozens of participants.

Team-building activities, our Escape Rooms, require constant communication between players and challenge them to a healthy and fun confrontation.

The Mysterious Murder, offers a fun and competitive environment where players compete simultaneously as a team to achieve final victory.

Initially designed for 2 to 6 players, the Escape Room can be easily adapted (and at no extra cost) to large groups of more than 6 players, in a joyful team competition.

Here are some tips for playing with larger groups :​

Divide the large group into teams of two to five players who will try to be the first to finish the game.

Put one group per room (bathroom, kitchen...).
If your place allows it, put the groups in different places but be careful that the groups don't mix up the puzzles.

Read the story to all the teams and start the clock.
It's up to the groups to come to you if they need a clue. For every clue that is revealed, you can give a token (ex: two extra minutes on the time, do push-ups…).

Create an atmosphere of expectation around the revelation of the winning team, as this will be one of the highlights of the challenge.

Great concept! "Who Killed Mrs. Duroy" tested for my birthday party with 15 people, it was great! And with a bit of imagination, you can create a whole atmosphere around the game 🙂 The Escape Kit team on the phone! Many thanks

We tested "The Mysterious Murder" with my daughter and her friends (14 years old) on her birthday. A kit super complete, and the girls were caught in the game, the puzzles are neither too simple nor too complex (with the clues, it's perfect) and the music playlist is just perfect to set the mood. I recommend ++++++++

Yesterday we played The Mysterious Murder with 14, 16 and 13 years old. The little one was a little rough around the edges at his age, but the older ones were in the thick of it. Thank you very much. We had a great time. And thank you to the people who respond quickly in messenger when we need... See you soon.

Great experiment with the Mysterious Murder kit. 22 adults divided into 5 groups were caught up in the game for an hour ... it allowed everyone to get to know each other and start the evening well. Doing it again was great, everyone enjoyed it.
