Murder and Intrigue Murder Mysteries is pleased to announce a unique and convenient opportunity for consumers who want to throw a last minute Halloween party on a budget—host a murder mystery!

Murder and Intrigue Murder Mysteries is a Texas based company selling murder mystery game packets that offer party planners in any location a fun alternative to the standard cocktail party. Event coordinators to stay-at-home moms who want a more creative Halloween experience can choose to host a true “whodunit” party, where one of the participants commits the “crime” and everyone is involved in solving it. Games are available in a variety of themes and sold as downloadable Adobe PDF files, giving purchasers the ability to quickly and easily print and prepare a party with minimum fuss and delay. In addition, Murder and Intrigue is offering 25% off through the end of October, making a game a fun option even for consumers on a tight budget.

Murder and Intrigue provides unscripted, interactive games that allow a host or hostess to present and solve a “murder.” Each participant is assigned a specific character and arrives the night of the party dressed in costume. The party-goers make accusations directed at other characters, discuss the facts of the crime, review clues, and guess the identity of the murderer by the end of the party. Packets include a crime scene map, accusations, clues, decorating tips, suggested menus, and a host guide for preparing the game.

Writer and creator, Amanda Craig, encourages anyone new to murder mysteries to avoid feeling intimidated at the thought of hosting a party last minute. The games are designed for both experienced players and those new to the genre, and the packet materials walk the host and characters through the process. "I had previously participated in a couple of murder mystery-style dinners, but nothing of this caliber. I was pleasantly surprised, and so comfortable that it was easy to get into my role!" offered Sandra G. of Austin, TX.
