Examples of printouts and some game photos

Your murder mystery party or dinner party game is printable as soon as you have downloaded it.

All of our murder mysteries are great fun to play and are also ideal for home printing as they are attractively formatted without being ink-heavy. 

All come with a very good range of theme-specific printouts that can be used to decorate your dinner table and party space.

Some hosts use their home printer - others email the pre-party and party documents to their guests for each person to print their own. (Alternatively, some guests choose to view party materials electronically.)

A Few Kind Customer Reviews

"A fantastic evening had by all! Fantastically written! The plot was creative with a few red herrings thrown in for good measure. This was our first murder mystery and after this I will definitely be doing another."

How Do I Print My Murdering Mystery Game?

Party materials such as the invitations and clues are just printed as normal.

The Host Instructions, Pre-Party Booklet and Party Booklets can all be easily printed to make neat, easy-to-hold booklets.  ALL booklets have been designed to print two pages of content per physical sheet of paper. (This halves the amount of paper you need when printing!)

Booklets are best printed double-sided but single-sided printers can also be used. Alternatively, if required, booklets can be viewed electronically on iPads etc.

The printing instructions (below) are all given as part of your party kit.

1 Printing Double-Sided Booklets

For printers that support double-sided printing, it's easy-peasy to print the host instructions, pre-party and party booklets:

1 Select Booklet

2 Open Properties Tab 

From within the Properties tab, select:

3 Two-sided (Duplex) Printing

4 With the "Print on Both Sides" dropdown, select "Yes, Flip Over". With some printers, this is not available so select the "Flip on Short Edge" dropdown.

Septs 3 and 4 for double-sided printing

5 Click OK to close the Properties tab and then click "Print". The printer will now arrange the pages to be in the correct order once the booklets are folded.

6 Once printed, staple twice down the middle and fold down the middle.

That's it! Very easy. No cutting and pasting required!

Tip: to save time, we often set all pre-party and party booklets to print and then staple and fold them one by one at the end.

2 Printing Single-Sided (Easiest Method)

Many customers just print on A4 paper without trying to make a booklet. (American and Canadian customers use Letter paper or P4 paper.) The end result is not as neat - but it is the quickest and easiest solution.

Important Tip: our Party Booklets, Pre-Party Booklets and Host Booklets have all been designed to print TWO pages of content per physical sheet of paper. Simply selecting the print options below will halve the amount of paper you need!

1 Use Multiple setting.

2 With the Pages per sheet dropdown, select 2.

3 With the Orientation radio buttons, select Portrait.

4 Click Print.

5 Staple

Optionally, you may cut into A5 sheets and then staple into an A5 booklet.

 

 

3 Printing Single-Sided Booklets (Best Method for Neat Booklets)

For single-sided printers, you can still create neat booklets for host instructions, pre-party booklets and party booklets by performing a couple of extra steps. 

1 Select booklet

2 For the "booklet subset" dropdown, select the "Back side only" dropdown

 

 

 

 

Single-sided printing - steps 1 and 2

3 Print and then - keeping pages printed side up but in reverse order (page 4, 3, 2 and then 1) - place pages back in printer.

4 Select Booklet.

5 For the "booklet subset" dropdown, select the "Front side only" dropdown.

6 Click "Print".

7 Once printed, staple twice down the middle and fold down the middle. 

Tip: printing the back side of the sheets then the front side means they end up in the right order to be stapled.

 

Party Printables for Each Murder Mystery Game

For each murder game, your party pack has optional theme-specific printables so that you have some easy decorations for your party space and table. Examples include themed:

  • Posters
  • Slang relating to the murder mystery
  • Other theme-specific printouts such as crate labels (for a speakeasy) or record labels (Swinging Sixties and 70s Disco)
  • Wine labels
  • Internal room signs
  • External signs
  • Dinner table place settings
  • Menus

All are designed to be attractive without having large swatches of bold, saturated colours that will guzzle your ink. For example, we reduce the amount of ink needed by lightening the backgrounds of some printouts or using a white background with a small border.

All printouts will print onto A4 paper; some themes also offer an additional version of menus and invitations in a smaller A5 size.
