DO-IT-YOURSELF Events: Mystery Playbooks

Mystery Playbooks Make Do-It-Yourself Events EASY!

Mysteries are just like real life – rich in variety and as individual as you are. Do-It-Yourself  events combine your wishes and desires with our expertise to create an unforgettable  occasion that is uniquely yours.


Working together we will create a MYSTERY History MysteryPLAYBOOK. You decide on the mystery that must be solved. We can provide a list of motives if you need help. The mystery doesn’t have to be a crime – but it usually is. Adult mysteries are most often murders and children’s mysteries are most often thefts.  You pick four to six colourful, crazy characters as suspects. We can help with over-the-top suggestions. Quirky habits and fun accessories will make a suspect memorable. Together we will make some easy but tricky clues so that your detectives can figure out whodunnit.  We will make sure you know how much time the set-up will take, what easy to find props are needed and how to run the timelines. A mystery playbook lets you host your very own spectacular mystery event. Good for special interest groups of any size.

Whether you want certain circumstances or special people you want to play a leading role or just need a little help smoothing out the rough edges. Sometimes you just want to do-it-yourself.

  1. Thank you so much for working with my on Kim’s Surprise Party! The crowd loved the performance and had a lot of fun playing along. Your script was so well put together and easy to follow! I can’t thank you enough!

    1. Thanks Maria! It was fun plotting together. And I can’t help but wonder what pasta with cocoa powder would taste like… but not enough to try it. : )

  2. I would like to host a mystery party for 4 girls aged 11, and it is possible to include myself in the game. Do you have anything that I can use for their parts, instructions on how to let the game play out?
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Shira – sorry for taking so long to get back to you. It’s fairly simple to come up with something but long to explain it. Can I call you? Email me your number.
