What is a Freeform Murder Mystery team building activity ?
A Freeform Murder Mystery team building activity is an interactive party where each guest has a character and a role in a story that will be played out over the course of three hours or so. Usually one person is the murderer and their job is to escape detection and put the blame onto someone else.
As well as solving the murder, in a Freeform murder mystery, everyone has other goals – maybe to find hidden pirate treasure, or to blackmail a rival, win another’s heart or maybe just make as much money as possible.
One person is the Host, and acts as organizer and co-ordinator, responsible for making sure everything runs smoothly and that all the guests have the information they need. They also act as referee should an impartial decision be required.
