Murder Mystery Set on the Orient Express
Murder Mystery Set on the Orient Express
A murder mystery game that lasts about an hour (with suitable acting skills!). We played with this brownies (aged 7+) but it is a 'proper' murder style mystery with slightly adult themes. 7 year olds who watch programs like Eastenders would have no difficulty with the themes. You do however need older girls to lead each group. If playing with a single age group I would not expect 7 year olds to cope.
Flags of France, Italy, Greece and Germany (fuse beads)
