A Bloody Dickens Christmas

Dickens-mad Murder Party guests

A unique Dickensian party

This is fun way to pass an afternoon or evening; it’s a Murder Mystery game which features some of your favourite Dickens’ characters…

Miss Havisham was left at the altar by her fiancé 23 years ago.

Miss. Havisham, dismayedHer mansion is now in ruins and Havisham’s days are spent in a haze of madness. She continues to wear her wedding dress.

But something has occurred that has summoned a moment of clarity. A skeleton has been dug up on the property. A mutilated, murdered corpse, that at least for Miss Havisham must be her lost fiancé.

Is it possible that after all these years she wasn’t in fact jilted? But who committed this atrocity? A plan is set forth, as the very guests that were present on her wedding day 23 years ago receive invitations to spend Christmas Eve at the Satis Manor, and within the Christmas merriment a murderer will be uncovered.

This is a wonderfully dark / humorous role-playing dinner party game, hosted by the Murder Master.

Play as one of Charles Dickens’ most beloved characters as you unravel the mysterious murder at Satis Manor all the while proclaiming your innocence! A Christmas Eve like no other, as you discover the horrors of each of the dinner guests, and their alibis.

Along with a few morbid Christmas Carols, this is one evening you won’t soon forget!

Bloody Dickens Christmas is a game for 10 people, each of whom play one of these characters…

When and Where?

Anytime, although very popular as a Christmas-in-July / Yulefest or Christmas party.

Sometime ago, I was contacted by the president of the NSW Dickens Society... she loved the idea of a Murder Mystery featuring some of Dickens' wonderful characters.

Visit their website... they have some terrific events.
