Downloadable Murder Mystery Games are Eco-Friendly and Convenient

Very Eco-Friendly

Our downloadable murder mysteries are kind to the environment as they use no packaging. The audio introduction and solution can be downloaded directly to your device without the need for a plastic memory stick or disc. And they do not need to be posted. You can choose whether to print the party materials or whether to make the game print-free if guests display party booklets and clues on a mobile or iPad. (If you use double-sided printing, then games need a minimum of 5 pieces of A4 paper per customer, plus 6-9 clues per game and any optional extras you wish to print.)

Very Convenient

Your whodunnit game is available for downloading as soon as PayPal completes. Therefore you do not need to wait for the mystery to be posted and then delivered; you do not need to pay for postage. The downloads are divided into logical zip files: host instructions, pre-party materials, party materials, audio introduction, audio solution, optional decorations and optional place setting and menu cards. Each zip file is then divided into logical folders to make it easy to understand - for example, the Pre-party and Party materials have a folder for Essential Players and another folder for Optional Players. 

Your Downloads Give  EVERYTHING You Need to Host a Great Murder Mystery Party

Downloads include party invitations and pre-party character bios with costume suggestions and ideas about how to add fun mannerisms. There are also party booklets and separate clues. An audio introduction gets your whodunnit game off to a great start; the audio solution gives detailed evidence against the dastardly killer or killers. (There is also a printable backup.)

Optionally, there are lots of theme-specific printouts for each party with a comprehensive set of decoration and menu ideas on the mystery page of our website. The host instructions and game instructions are both easy to follow.

How Do I Download My Murder Mystery Game?

Once PayPal has completed, there are three ways of downloading your files.

 

1 From the "Checkout Then Download" Page

Once PayPal completes, the system should automatically take you back to the "Checkout Then Download" Page.  The top image on this page remains the same but the information below this image will have changed. Rather than fields requesting your information and giving details of your order, there is now a message in bold saying to scroll down to download your files.

If you scroll down you will see the 7 links in the illustration. Click on the right-hand link to download the file.

 

2 From the Confirmation Email

The system will send you an email with a purple box at the top saying "Thank You for Your Purchase; Downloads and Receipt are Below".

There will be seven files with clickable links to each file.

 

Links sent in email confirmation

3 From "My Account" Page

On the top menu line, select the "My Account "option. On the "My Account" page, log-in (if you are not already logged in), then select the Download tab and scroll down to get the same seven downloadable files as with the other two options.

 

Do All Files Need to be Downloaded?

We recommend that you download the first three zip files (Host Instructions and Materials, Pre-Party Files and Party Files) and also the two audio files. The last two zip files (Decoration Pack and Menu and Place Cards) are optional.

Please see our Murder Mystery Kit page for more information.

A Few Kind Customer Comments

Flapper and gangster

"Purchased this and played for my 25th birthday over Zoom; we had 14 players and everyone had the best fun!! Our first murder mystery party. Haven’t laughed as much in a long time!
Really really easy to organize and set up with fantastic resources, really clear instructions and really easy to follow once you get into it.
So much fun for something different during lockdown - we couldn’t face another Zoom quiz haha everyone dressed up and really got into character which was hilarious. And no one guessed the murderer!
Couldn’t recommend more for some fun during Lockdown and we’re all really keen to try one in person too (whenever that may be allowed!!). Thanks for a great night!"

"I’m so glad I found Maple Mystery Games when I was looking for what to do for my 40th birthday in Lockdown. It was so comprehensive to organise as the host and you had thought of everything in the character details and party booklets. Everyone got into character, and none of us expected the outcome although the clues meant it was possible to guess. I’d definitely recommend doing a virtual murder mystery and would love to do another one as it was so much fun!"

Joan Tyrrell 

Did ‘Murder in the 90s’ with some friends via Zoom in Lockdown 1 (May 2020). Enjoyed it so much we are planning to do another one in Lockdown 3 (Jan 2021). Everything is organised and provided for you in the pack. The script and character bios with a bit of ad-libbing here and there, really made it a great laugh. This honestly was a great way to spend a couple of hours with friends (even if we couldn’t all be in the same place).

Daniel Anderton 

"This is the second time we have purchased a virtual murder mystery for my family who are dotted all over the UK.
They are easy to set up, simple to follow and great fun for the whole family! I couldn’t recommend more, especially when usual get-togethers can’t happen in the current climate; these have provided so much entertainment!"
