How to play the Murder Mystery quiz?


Our murder mystery quizzes are split into two parts. Each section consists of nine quiz questions and riddles, but part two has an optional tiebreaker question if teams draw. There are also extra points to gather in with some key questions! Quizmasters will hand out answer sheets at the beginning of the murder mystery quiz.






Part One 

Part one will focus on:


The time of the murder (questions 1-3)

The scene where the murder took place (questions 4-6)

The victim of the awful crime (questions 7-9)


As the quiz master asks each question, individuals or teams may be confident with their answers, giving them the option to double is triple their points (at each specific question). Players can do so by selecting the X2 or 3X option next to each answer. However, if players take this risk and find out that their answer is wrong, they will lose points. So be careful with your answers detectives!





Part two 

Part two has an extra tiebreaker question, and will focus on:


The murder weapon (questions 10-12)

The suspect of the murder (questions 13-15)

The motives behind the crime  (questions 16-18) 


As with part 1, individuals or teams have the option to double or triple their points (at specific questions) by selecting the X2 or X3 option next to each answer.


If players correctly guess answers to ALL THREE of the key questions (9, 15, and 18), an extra 4 points can be awarded to their final score.

The winner is the team or individual that gets the most points in total.


The Story 

The right answers unfold the Murder story. For example, when asking the Murder time, the answers (1-3) could be the year 1942, the Month of January, and the second day.  In this case, the story would unfold: “The murder happened on the second day of January in the year 1942”

All Murder Mystery quiz -stories are fictional and the answers can create quite unusual stories in some cases. Also, notice that the answers are not always logically connected together. For example, the right answer for the year could be 1942 and the suspect still could be Michael Jackson, even he isn’t even yet born in real life.

 The Answers Sheet and Point Scoring


Write your team name at the top of the sheet

Use the answer boxes to write down your answers to each question

(Each correct answer awards one point)

Use the key question answer boxes for answers to questions 9, 15 and 18

Choose if you’d like to take the risk of doubling or tripling your points

The highest-scoring team wins. If a draw is reached between two or more teams, the tiebreaker question will be used. The team with the closest correct answer to the tiebreaker question will be the winner
