There's something about murder mystery games that intrigues people; murder mystery dinner train rides operate across the country and Clue is a mainstay in any family game chest. Murder mystery games are popular for play in large group settings such as at dinner parties and sleepovers. A cabin camping experience provides an ideal setting for a murder mystery game and can turn your next family reunion or work or church group retreat into an opportunity for problem solving, brain-bending entertainment.

Haley Productions

Haley Productions is a company that's been creating murder mystery games for groups and work groups since 1988. It offers many different murder mysteries available for download online. Popular mysteries like "Next of Kin, "Murder at the Midnight Tower" and "Murder on Maui" can be ordered in a standard or team-building format. All games include scripts, gameplay guidelines, evidence records, invitations, award certificates, thank you notes, name tags, costume suggestions and the opportunity to communicate with the game's designer with any questions about adapting the game to fit your group.

Host Party

Host Party is similar to Haley Productions in that it offers a variety of murder mysteries that can be downloaded online and tailored to fit either a friends and family group or corporate team-building activity. The games are designed for anywhere from 15 to 99 guests to play, and samples of games, storylines and character descriptions can be viewed prior to purchase.

Merri Mysteries

Merri Mysteries offers two versions of murder mystery games tailored to Christian youth groups. The games are intended to be used on youth camping trips and are designed to work with groups from eight to 99 people. A "mystery not murder" version removes the gory details from the experience and puts participants on a quest for the "truth," while the "murder" version offers a murder mystery that's billed as family-friendly.

The Murder Mystery Company

The Murder Mystery Company is a travelling mystery troupe with operations out of Michigan, Ohio, Chicago and Los Angeles. A cast of characters from the company can be hired to put on a murder mystery show anywhere, including at a cabin in the woods. This option costs considerably more than the "do it yourself" options, but is professionally done and involves group members without requiring them to put on the show themselves. If you're looking more for entertainment and less for team-building, this may be best option for you.
