A little party never killed nobody....but did it? With these fun murder mystery party ideas you and your guests will have a killer good time.

There are so many fun themes for these murder mystery parties. We just completed one for our Christmas party and it was a blast. Each guest will be a character in the mystery game. I do recommend sending the character info before hand if you are crunched on time. That way the guests can get familiar with their character and dress like them if they want!

You can also download this file to print envelopes to place each guests' character information in. You can print on plain paper, sticker paper or directly onto a 5x7 sized white envelope. These were a hit at my party! Just click here to download the file.

The Royal Casino, one of the most famous casinos in Vegas, was having a special casino night for all of the rich and famous celebrities and clientele. It was a very exclusive invite-only event thrown by Royal Capone, and the guest list was very specially curated. Those invited were some of the most famous and influential people in the country, ranging from singers to actors to billionaires. Yet when an uninvited guest snuck into the casino, someone must have found him because he was later found dead.
