With those words, your murder mystery escape room game has begun! But how do you solve a murder mystery like Sherlock Holmes?
But before you go donning a deerstalker hat and grabbing your magnifying glass, there's something you need to know about murder mysteries - they're not always as simple as they seem. In fact, many of them are downright difficult! And our Envy Murder Mystery Escape Room kit is no exception. It's a tough one and will test even the most experienced detective.
So, if you haven't already grabbed your copy of our murder mystery escape room kit, now is the time! It comes with everything you need to get started, including a detailed murder mystery scenario, clues, and suspect cards.
Now that you're armed with our murder mystery escape room kit, let's take a look at how you can solve a murder mystery like Sherlock Holmes.
The first thing you need to do when solving a murder mystery is to start investigating the scene of the crime. This means taking a good look around the room for any clues or evidence that could help you solve the case.
In our murder mystery escape room kit, the murder takes place in a speakeasy, so you'll need to search the room for clues that will help you identify the murderer. Look for things like bloodstains, weapons, or anything out of place.
Once you've had a good look around the room, it's time to start making deductions. This is where your Sherlock Holmes-like powers of deduction come in!
Solving a murder mystery is all about understanding the Holy Trinity of murder mysteries: means, opportunity, and motive.
The final piece of the puzzle is understanding why the murder was committed. What was the murderer's motive? Was it money? Love? Revenge? Jealousy? There are many reasons why someone would commit murder, and it's up to you to figure out which one applies in this case.
Start by questioning who would have the most to gain from the victim's death. Look at the victim's belongings and try to figure out what they were worth. And if the motive is not immediately apparent, talk to the other guests at the murder mystery party. Someone is bound to know something that could help you solve the case.
With these three pieces of the puzzle, you should be able to solve any murder mystery. Just remember to use your powers of deduction and pay attention to the clues!
One final tip: be careful of red herrings! These are clues that appear to be important but are actually just distractions. They can be used to throw you off the scent or to make the murder mystery more difficult to solve.
We've included a few red herrings in our murder mystery escape room kit to make things more challenging. But don't let them lead you astray! Pay attention to the clues that matter, and you'll be able to solve the case in no time.
Solving a murder mystery is all about using your powers of deduction. Pay attention to the clues and use your brain to put together the pieces of the puzzle. And if you ever get stuck, just remember to ask yourself: what would Sherlock do? You can also rely on your sidekick Dr. Watson to help you out! With a little bit of effort, you'll be able to solve any murder mystery like Sherlock Holmes!
