Murder Under the Big Top is bringing “whodunnit” mystery fun to the world of a three-ring circus, with a fun game kit that’s playable by up to 20 people.
Become a party legend by hosting this circus-themed Murder Mystery party for your next office event, game night, birthday, or gathering! Make memories with this ready-to-print kit playable by 4-20 people! Virtual rules are included to play on Zoom or your favorite video chat app! It’s 1952, and P. U. Barnhum’s world-famous three-ring circus has come to Podunk! The town is overwhelmed by the excitement, the lights, the animals, and the— dead body of the ringmaster. Yes, there lies Rhett Coate, shot to death right in the center ring. The circus owner, P. U. Barnhum, is in a tizzy. Was the murderer a fellow circus performer, like Malcolm Laff the clown, or the trapeze act Jess Fling/Ann Ketch? Was it one of the carnival attractions, like Christa Bawle the fortuneteller or Isalotta Herr the bearded lady? Or maybe it was a member of the audience like Arlo Kell, someone with cause to dread the reappearance of a Podunkian who ran off to join the circus… But hold onto your popcorn — the murderer may be YOU!
