ABOUT MURDER MYSTERY

The lights suddenly the lights go out and you hear the loud sound of a gunshot. When the light comes back on there is a dead man lying on the floor close to you. Looking around you see some very unsavory characters. One of them must be the murderer, but which one is it?

This may sound like a movie, but in fact, it is nothing of the sort. You are part of an exciting murder mystery party game.

Murder Mystery Dinner Parties and events have become a popular entertainment choice for team building events, private parties or for anyone looking for a unique experience to offer their guests.

Murder mystery games have been very popular throughout the world for the past 2 decades. Recently, there has been a huge growth of interest for murder mystery events in Cape Town.

Our company is the pioneer and have been facilitating murder mystery dinner parties, murder mystery events and murder mystery scripted games in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, and Durban for the past 7 years.  In fact, we have even performed murder mystery events as fundraising events.

Different companies offer various ways of running and facilitating Murder Mystery Games. The way we as VirtuoSA run our events is what is called Interactive murder mystery games.

Other operators offer a murder mystery where solving the murder is the sole purpose of the game. Our events are not strictly scripted. In VirtuoSA, the characters receive detailed backgrounds, which describe their fictional relationships with other characters at the event. These other characters have secrets of their own, which may have nothing to do with the murder that occurs. Participants take on their character’s persona.

Once the murder has happened, the characters they learn details of the crime through evidence, eavesdropping, and questioning other characters. Some of our themes include fake money, which can be used for buying information, blackmailing, and other devious schemes. All of this leads to extensive social interaction which adds to the effectiveness of the event.

Most of our murder mystery themes are based upon South African storyline’s and locations and across different timelines. We offer a turn-key solution that includes costumes and props. There is nothing that you would need to do except arrive at the location, which VirtuoSA can also assist with. We have a network of a wide variety of murder mystery friendly venues in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, and Durban.
