Murder Mystery Party: A Taste for Wine and Murder

Murder Mystery Party Game

Whodunnit? Take a Stab at It!

A Taste for Wine and Murder is a perfect murder mystery theme for your next Halloween dinner party. Murder is on the menu, and everyone is a suspect.

The victim is California vineyard owner Barry Underwood, whose body is found hidden beneath his wine cellar. The other characters are played by six to eight adults, one of whom is the murderer. But which one?

Each guest is encouraged to arrive in costume and act out their respective role with the aid of a booklet that describes their character's background and motivation.

The murder mystery party boxed set also includes eight party invitations and envelopes, place cards, secret clues, and a compact disc that introduces the game and later reveals the solution to the crime.

A Word of Caution
One mystery party host accidentally played the message in its entirety and spoiled the fun for his guests.

Menu by Sandra Gluck
A wine and cheese menu is well-suited to this murder mystery party theme. However, the game includes a suggested menu, featuring recipes by cookbook author Sandra Gluck. Here's another fun idea--some hosts have printed special "Underwood Winery" labels to create wine bottle props for the buffet table.
