"Murder at Radio City Music Hall": In interactive murder mystery games the guests are provided with character backgrounds and confidential information. Unlike scripted games, there are many sub-plots and the goal isn't just to solve the murder. Guests are given license to interrogate or perform actions or activities with the other guests which will help them solve the case or accomplish their own characters goals. Interactive games do allow for ad libbing and allow a person to take their character in the direction they want to go. Some games will allow the murderer to know upfront that they are the killer, and others will keep it a secret until the rest of the group is told during a solution round. This game will require our participants to sign up well in advance so that we can email you the information required to make the game a success. So please sign up ASAP.

The host describes the song and tells the basic story of the song. The host then asks the group if anyone can name the song and if they can, in how many notes they can properly name the song. The challenger who states that they can name the song in the least number of notes gets the first guess. The artist then plays the designated number of notes from the melody of a song and the participant tries to guess first. If that challenger does not guess, anyone else in the group can guess. The game is won by the first person to guess the title after an additional note is added to the melody.
