It is the 1920's and nobody in living memory has ever known Myddlemoor Abbey as anything other than a ruin. The only building in the former grounds of the Abbey is the Abbott's house, which was still lived in up until about 20 years ago. Since then it has also been empty.

Aubrey Smyth is a new-comer to Myddlemoor and took a fancy to the old Abbott's house, but had a nasty shock in store while carrying out renovations...the house was haunted by the spirits of the Abbey.

Aubrey calls in the help of two ghost-hunting investigators, and also invites any interested locals, for a weekend of Ghost Hunting.

The intrepid gang of supernatural detectives get more than they bargained for when one of the guests, Amber Moller, turns up dead in the hallway.

Did Amber, the local District Nurse, fall prey to spirits from the other side?

How To Play A Mix & Mingle Murder Mystery

Our mix & mingle party games are designed to be played by the combination of players listed on the game. Some require a specific number of male and female players, some have interchangeable players. There is also a minimum and maximum number of players listed for each game, but you can use the same version of game for any number of players. This gives you maximum flexibility when choosing your game and guest list.

What Is Included In Your Download

Your download should include a ZIP file with which once un-zipped you should have the following folders and files.

  • Character Sheets/booklets
  • Confessions
  • Solution
  • Instructions
  • Player Rules
  • Invitations
  • Nametags
  • Scavenger Objects

How To Use The Game

Produce Invitations

Within the files downloaded is the 'Invitation' for you to print out and send to your guests. The invitation is double sided giving the information need for those participating in the game before they arrive. Once printed all you need to do is put the guests name on the front, and indicate which character they are playing, that way if they choose to dress up for the event they know what to look out for in the way of costume. (Please be aware that this file shows the invitation in Landscape view – you need to adjust your print settings accordingly).

Character Sheets

The Character Script pages are designed for double side printing, and should be printed then folded. If your printer does not have the facility to double side print, just print the 'even' pages and this will give your what you need, fold these in half and write the character name and round number on each.


The Confessions are for the guest (or guests) that ultimately get arrested at the end of the game. The confessions explain if they actually committed the crime or not. If they did not commit the crime the confession does not give the solution. These should be printed out and folded as the Character Scripts.

The Solution

The Solution is similar to the Confessions except that it gives the name of the Guilty Party at the top, so take care when printing this so you don't see who did it too early.

Scavenger Hunt

The Mix & Mingle Mysteries include an optional scavenger hunt which can reveal additional clues and 2 weapons that players can use once against each other. If you use these weapons then you can also try to solve those murders as well, even though they don't directly affect the main story. The Scavenger Hunt takes place just before Round 3. Any murdered players can continue to ask questions as an "Investigator" but can not answer questions about their former character.

Making The Most Of Your Theme

Where and how you run your game can make a real difference to its feel. All the mix & mingle games are set at some type of party, usually with a buffet, but decorating your house or garden to match the setting can be fun and add to the atmosphere. Each Mix & Mingle Murder/Mystery has it's own Pinterest page with ideas and suggestions to help you with food and decoration.
