About us

Hello and thank you for visiting!

The Murder Mystery Store is owned and run by Tim and Lynda Cowles. We're based just outside Wisbech, in the Cambridgeshire Fens, and we love murder mystery! What could be more fun than dressing up with your friends, pretending to be from a different time and place, all while trying to solve a murder?



You can trust us with your party…



Over the last few years, with the huge growth in online retail, a lot of companies have sprung up offering downloadable (and sometimes boxed) murder mystery kits but we still believe we're unbeatable for quality, value and service.

We've been making and selling murder mystery party games since 2004, when we approached BV Leisure to include DVDs films and music CDs in their hugely successful range of Murder Mystery Party games (which previously only included audio cassettes).



These DVD-enhanced games were so popular that the second best-selling brand quickly followed suit. We wrote and produced their next 14 games, which sold thousands of copies in high street stores such as John Lewis, Debenhams, Argos, Toys R Us, WHSmiths - and the Murder Mystery Store, where we've been selling our own games alongside many other brands for over 12 years.

What drives us is hearing how much fun our customers have had playing our murder mysteries so we're always looking for more ways to make fun, easy-to-host games.

Since those early days, we've designed a wide range of different games including the Murder Mystery Flexi Party brand which - thanks to its headache-free hosting format - is now the best-selling range of murder mystery games both on our website and Amazon.co.uk.

Need advice?

We know there's no such thing as a 'one-size-fits-all' murder mystery dinner party so we stock a wide range of boxed and instant download games from established and experienced writers. And as we've played, studied and sold murder mystery games since 2004, we know a lot about what works and what doesn't.
