The best mystery dinner games to play at home 🕵️🍽 2024

Looking for a really good mystery dinner game to play at home 🕵️🍽? We have compared and listed the best German mystery dinner games.

What is a mystery dinner?

The guests of a crime dinner (also dinner crime) meet for a usually multi-course dinner. In the process, a criminal framework is created in which fictitious perpetrators murder fictitious victims - crime dinners are therefore role-playing games. The participants' task is to solve the case like the investigator in a detective story.

Provider On-site or at home

There are event providers who offer this as a bookable experience in a restaurant. And there are providers that offer these experiences as a purchasable game box. We have listed the latter here.

Degree of interaction varies

The degree of interaction varies depending on the provider: in some cases, the guests of the mystery dinner are very much integrated into the game (i.e. like main actors), in others they are more of a spectator.

Thriller even without dinner?

There are also mystery games that do not involve a specific meal in the plot. We have created a separate list for mystery games: The best mystery board games.
