Over the last few years I have been to several Murder Mystery nights and days and I have to say, it is really easy to get hooked on them. It is like acting out Cluedo with copious amounts of wine, posh food and the company of great friends, what's not to love? Yesterday I was invited to Posh Flooring's blogger event at the Leeds City Hilton called 'Murder on The Posh Floor'. The event was full to the brim with some of the best bloggers in Yorkshire and ended up being such a success, it was trending locally for the three hours we were there.
If you haven't been to a Murder Mystery event before and you're intrigued and want to know what happens, the game is simple. You're there to solve a murder and you have several means of testing and interviewing all the suspects. This includes criminal record requests, Forensic examinations, interview sheets and many clues along the way. The scene is usually acted out right in front of you with Sherlock being your port of call for any questions or answers.
The more extravagant Murder Mystery events will have a three course meal while you conspire with your allies and resolve the enquiry. Our meal was provided courtesy of the Hilton and consisted of three course meal starting with Butternut Squash soup, followed by a Red Onion and Goat's Cheese tart for the vegetarian's such as myself and finished with a Strawberry Chocolate mousse.
Murder Mystery's can be quite difficult to solve, but the key to is to ask as many questions as possible in the time allocated and after that, it makes it a lot easier to narrow down the suspects. Luckily for us, it was our team that won yesterday. After several debates and lots of teamwork, we finally figured out the culprit and as a reward were treated to a lovely bottle of Champagne to toast our success.
I have to say Murder on the Posh Floor was probably one of the best blogger events I have to been to in a while and the perfect way to start 2016.
