What is a Halloween murder mystery party?

A Halloween murder mystery party is well... a murder mystery with a Halloween theme!

Like other murder mysteries, groups of friends gather together to solve a fictitious murder. The game is interactive, as players take turns to read from their scripts, and takes place other several rounds – until the players work out, who committed the murder, how and why they did it – and the mystery is solved!

With a Halloween-themed murder mystery game – the concept is the same, but the whole game is customized to be extra spooky!

So dust off your witch's hat and sharpen your pumpkin carving knives – the You Dunnit personalized murder mystery game builder will help make this the best Halloween party ever (online or in real life!).
