New Game! Murder At Royal Ascot

Murder Mystery Game - Murder at Royal AscotI’ve long since been a fan of horse racing and racing related outings. At this time of year, I love reading about the style guide suggested by the highlight of the flat racing calendar. What a magnificent show of pageantry, fashion, frivolity and sportmanship! It struck me that those who like to get their gladrags on for racing would be prime candidates for hosting a murder mystery, hence this latest game, Murder At Royal Ascot! I’ve thrown some time travelling in there, so this game is set in the 1950s!

Format: Unlike my other games, which are flexible, this game has a very certain killer. Having a set killer can change the game dynamic considerably, but it is still suitable to be played by beginners but will add something fresh for those well-versed in playing murder mystery games.


Get your eyeliner flicks ready and dust off your morning suit for a fun 1950s party! Inspired by the wonderful vintage glory of Royal Ascot and The Crown, this printable pack contains everything you need to create an unforgettable British vintage murder mystery event that your guests will never forget, if they live to tell the tale!

Great for a garden party, or to make your special event stand out.

Suitable for 12 – 16 players.
– A comprehensive host guide
– Invitations 
– Character scripts x 16
– Evidence guidelines
– Guilty or innocent cards 
– Interrogation guide
– Evidence
