Being part of a murder mystery party is something I have always wanted to do, so I was totally excited when my friend said she was going to do one to celebrate her birthday. She chose Host a Murder and got a discount as she picked on of their preferred venues, Mickey's Cafe in Paddington.

Before the event, my friend was sent out all the pre-information to distribute. A week before the event, we all received an email with information about our character, the other characters and the murder we had just stumbled upon. We were not told if we are innocent or guilty. The pre-information also gave us some costume ideas if we decided to dress up.

When the party date arrived, we entered a private room at Mickey's Cafe. There was a host from the company, who guided us along and made sure we stayed on track. All the players were given a booklet which we read sections of. As we played, the waiters brought in our starters, mains and desserts. It is recommended to get the set menu, so the food ordering doesn't disrupt the flow of the game.

I won't give away too much of what happened in the game as not to spoil it, but it was a totally fun and unique experience where we all got to play Nancy Drew, piecing together a number of different clues and trying to identify red herrings. That evening, I met a lot of the people there for the first time and the game was a great ice breaker.

Now this is something different, it would definitely give the party a mystery and something for everyone to talk about.
