Simply Murder takes the hassle out of hosting with a pick-up-and-play kit that needs no preparation. You don’t have to send out invitations or dress up (unless you want to). Just hand out the roles and let the fun begin!

Each player is given a character sheet containing a scripted introduction and key facts - there aren’t any scripted questions or answers, leaving you completely free to improvise your role (acting tips are included)! Audio narration from Inspector Basset drives the game forward over three rounds, so you can play along with your friends - even the host doesn’t know whodunit!

Simply Murder’s relaxed format allows you to play the game at your own pace - finish it in an hour or stretch it over a cosy afternoon. Play with a buffet or over dinner, at any time of the day or night...

Take the stress out of hosting with our bestselling brand!
* Play with ANY combination of 8-16 guests. No-one is 'bolted on', everyone's a suspect.
* The murderer is chosen on the night so the party still goes on if someone can't make it!
* No random guessing! Suspects have different stories if they're guilty, with important clues to help you solve whodunit.
