Virtual Murder Mystery Party
Staying home this weekend? That doesn’t have to be as boring as it sounds. Whether your pals are on the same street or across the globe, you can still host a virtual murder mystery party online with your friends!
What Is An Online Murder Mystery Party?
Before discussing what a virtual murder mystery party is (aka, an online murder mystery party), let’s make sure you know what a murder mystery party is. Essentially, it’s a party that follows a specific theme, and every guest gets assigned a character. During the party, a “murder” occurs, and it’s up to the attendees to figure out who did it!
So how does that translate to the virtual world?
Easy! Instead of meeting in person, everyone logs onto a video call and connects with each other remotely. Each person is still assigned a character and sent their role and backstory ahead of time. Just like pants, costumes are encouraged but not required – it’s all about getting into character and having fun.
Once everyone is settled in, the murder takes place (virtually, of course). The victim’s body is found, and it’s up to the virtual team to work together to solve the crime. Clues are sent out via email or chat, and everyone has to put their detective skills to the test to figure out who did it.
But the challenge is different in a virtual murder mystery party. Everyone is in a different location, so communication is key! You’ll need to collaborate and share information with your teammates in order to piece together the mystery. Plus, there may be some technical challenges to overcome, like internet glitches or video call delays, that make the investigation even more challenging. (Or, is that just the murderer playing a clever trick…?)
