Sometimes it is a theatrical production with actors play their roles and give the clues, while you watch and
try to figure out who committed the crime. Sometimes it is
a small group of friends who take on the roles of the various
characters in the story, giving clues and improvising the action.
When it is all over, everyone guesses the murderer.
There are many opportunities for adventure, the
professional mystery weekends at bed and breakfasts, or mystery dinner theater
productions, mystery trains, cruise ships. For the do-it-yourself-er there are boxed games, complete with all the clues
and instructions you need. These games are available at toy and book stores and
online. There are even games you can download on your computer and
print out. You could design your own game or hire someone to design a game especially for you. That is what my heroine,
Gwen Wilson, does. She is a novelist and a mystery game designer.
Based on my experience creating mystery games, I detailed
step-by-step how to design and write your own mystery game.
