One of the best party ideas that is quickly becoming popular today is hosting your own murder mystery party. Once you successfully pull off one of these parties, there is a very good chance that your guests ask for seconds that can turn into a weekly or monthly source of entertainment. In fact, murder mystery nights are not only held exclusively in households, some banquet halls and party venues hold an event like this every so often because it is simply that enjoyable.

The very first decision you will have to make is the kind of murder mystery game you will ask your guests to play. An important factor you should consider here is the number of guests that will be present. Ensure that you have enough guests for each character. For instance if you choose to do a role play of Cluedo then you should have enough guests to take the role of Miss Scarlett, Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White, The Reverend Green, Mrs. Peacock and Professor Plum. Of course, the number of guests can always exceed the number of characters. Extra guests can always participate in solving the crime.

Once you have decided which game to play cast you actors ahead of time and send them their brief character biographies in advance if you like. This gives them the time to memorise their scripts if there are any and can also ask them to come to the party in attire that match their roles. The last thing you want is to have one of your characters cancel out on the last minute which can be quite tricky to resolve.
