Product Info

Murder at Ridlestone Manor is a PRINTABLE Murder Mystery Party game for avid SHERLOCK HOLMES fans and mystery novices alike. The game is afoot! (*Revised Version!)

Setting: The Murder at Ridlestone Manor Mystery Dinner Party game is set in 1889 in an English countryside Estate. However, hosts may adapt the game to reflect a modern adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes stories.

Synopsis: You are cordially invited to attend Lady Murdoch’s birthday celebration at the luxurious Ridlestone Manor. Tragically, Lord Charles Alfred Murdoch will not be joining the party on account of being murdered by one of the guests! Over dinner you will have opportunity to utilize your deductive powers to discover whodunit. Perhaps the murderer is YOU!

The game is broken into four 15 minute rounds presented as Acts 1-4. It is best played with 8 characters (4 men and 4 women). During each round, characters will read or ad-lib from their character booklets which reveal clues and shocking accusations!

This is a fun party game to play in anticipation of upcoming Sherlock films and episodes or for any kind of celebration! The host will set the pace of the game which can last from 1-3 hours. It is not necessary to play the game over a meal, however this is the recommended setting.
