These differences innovated the entire murder mystery party industry. Even today, this difference is what makes our mystery parties so special. All of your materials are designed to make things easier on you, the host, so you can spend your party enjoying the time you have with your guests – and focus on solving the mystery yourself and having a great time with the people who matter to you most – no silly stunts to arrange, no embarrassing lines to make your friends perform… a classic whodunit investigation stripped of all of the things people hate about murder mystery “games”. Simply download the mystery of your choice, email the suspect guides to your guests (or print and deliver to your guests, if you’re more traditional) and get ready to prove how clever you and your guests really are!
Despite the fact we are now a corporation, Leigh still writes each and every mystery and designs each variation, host guide, suspect guide, ending and alternate ending herself, by hand. As a writer, Leigh’s passion for storytelling still runs deep, and her love of leaving clues for people to solve is only evolving as SHOT grows. Evening events, weekend mystery experiences, escape room design, all of these things keep Leigh inspired.
2020 was a big year for SHOT. In spite of the pandemic (and that suddenly, no one in the world could host a party!), we helped our clients transition to online, virtual mysteries so everyone could still connect, make memories and share laughter, in a time when we all needed it most! We will continue supporting our clients with virtual mysteries going forward, so you can connect and sleuth no matter where your favourite people are in the world!
Also in 2020, SHOT launched our clothing line, sleuth. wear – Clothing for Mystery Lovers and we threw our first Mystery Film Festival and short film competition with a fantastic response, which has now become an annual event. We can wait to expand more and explore and promote the love of solving mysteries in all their forms!
