Christmas begins on November 1st, right? Well maybe for Mariah Carey and those tasked with organising the office Christmas party. In fact, many tables will have been booked at the end of the summer!
Office parties are as varied as the workplaces and staff who throw them, but here are some top tips for hosting a murder mystery party this Christmas holiday season!
Whether you have some time penciled in during the day to have the team bond together, or you are looking for interesting entertainment options, a murder mystery can be a great idea.
- Escape the norm: Allow your staff and colleagues a break from reality as they assume the identity of an undercover spy, a famous opera singer or even a Disney princess. This escapism can bring introverted employees out of their shells, and lets everyone blow off some steam.
- Problem-solving & critical thinking: Assessing all that evidence and the other player’s alibis gets the brain juices flowing as each player must critically assess what happens in the game, working as a team to find who the killer is.
- Customisable to your event: Whether it’s over a daytime hot chocolate or a boozy-all night dancing sort of party, organising your own murder mystery gives you the freedom to create a fun and engaging activity that suits your team, time and budget.
