How It Works

Public (ticketed) Events

 

The first step in participating in a Maid to Order Mysteries event is to purchase a ticket. We have limited spaces for each event so your ticket reserves your space.

 

-Shortly after you’ve completed your purchase, you will receive an email from us confirming your reservation. This email also includes a personality questionnaire specific to the event. (See sample questionnaire HERE.) The questionnaire helps us determine which character in the game will fit you best. The sooner you email back your answers, the better the match will be!

 

-At least one week prior to the event we will email you your Character Assignment along with costume suggestions. Costumes are never mandatory, but they are encouraged! There will be “Best Dressed” prizes awarded at the event.

 

- A few days before the event you will be sent another email with specific information about your character and how he/she fits into this murder mystery storyline. There will also be general details about the event (where to park, what food/beverages will be available, etc.)

 

At the Event

 

- When you arrive at the event, you will be presented with an envelope containing rules of the game, your clues, a suspect/guest list, and blank ballots for you to vote for who you think the murderer is (accusation ballots) and who you think deserves the “Best Dressed” award (costume ballots). You’ll also receive a writing utensil and a drink ticket.

 

- Shortly after a welcome speech signifying the start of the event, a murder will occur. You will have approximately 90 minutes to interrogate your fellow suspects/guests, find clues, and vote for who you think “dunnit.” 

 

- Whoever receives the most murder accusation votes will be eliminated from the game. If that person is not the murderer, you will have one more opportunity to try to solve the crime... but not before the murderer gets to strike again...

 

- At the end of the second round of voting, the solution to the mystery will be explained and prizes awarded to either the first successful sleuth... or to the criminal who got away with murder.

 

 

- If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at maidtoordermysteries@gmail.com!

 

 

 

- The first step in planning your mystery party is to choose a date. We recommend allowing at least three to four weeks to put the party together, but the more time, the better.

- Choose a theme! You can either choose one of our previous themes or we will custom build a theme for you. 1920’s Prohibition Star Wars? You got it! 80’s time travel mash up? Why not?!

-Choose a venue! You can host at home or in a rented space, we can handle venue rentals for you. Prices for venues will be added to the overall amount charged or price per head.

 

Before the Event

 

-Prepare your guest list and provide us with the email address for each guest. They will then be sent an official invitation and a questionnaire to help us cast them in the perfect role! You can see samples of our questionnaire HERE

 

-As soon as we receive the questionnaires from all attending guests, we will email them their character assignments along with costume suggestions. We send these as quickly as possible so that your guests will have time to prepare their costumes and props. Costumes are never mandatory, but they are encouraged! There will be a “Best Dressed” prize awarded at the party. 

 

- In our next consultation, we will walk you through how to host a successful party and answer any questions you may have. We also create a Pinterest board with great links for recipes, decorations, character costumes and more to help with the ambience of your party.

 

- A few days before the event your guests will be sent another email with private information/clues about the murder mystery story that they should not share with other guests.

 

At the Event

 

-When your guests arrive, they will be presented with an envelope containing rules of the game, their clues, a suspect/guest list, and blank ballots for them to vote for who they think the murderer is (accusation ballots) and who they think deserves the “Best Dressed” award (costume ballots). They’ll also receive a writing utensil.

 

- We will give a welcome speech to your guests and explain the rules (either in person or via pre-recorded video if you ordered a remote event). Shortly after, we will notify the group when the murder takes place.

 

- Whoever receives the most murder accusation votes will be eliminated from the game. If that person is not the murderer, you and your remaining guests will have one more opportunity to try to solve the crime... but not before the murderer gets to strike again...

 

- At the end of the second round of voting (should it be needed), the solution to the mystery will be explained and prizes awarded to either the first successful sleuth... or to the criminal who got away with murder.
