Murder at Sea

It is 1914 and the First World War has just broken out. On an American cruise ship in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, diplomats, dignitaries and the crew must grapple with not only the outbreak of war but also the murder of Captain Bayard.

Who killed Captain Bayard – and why? Find out in Murder at Sea.

Murder at Sea lasts for about four hours and is suited to an evening. It is often played over a meal – a finger buffet if possible to allow guests to circulate and talk in private.

"I really enjoyed All at Sea and thought that your materials were extremely well done. "

How Freeform Games Murder Mysteries Work

Murder at Sea is unlike many murder mystery games. Although the game starts with a murder, most of the characters have more important things to do than to investigate it. And the killing may not be over – it is unlikely that everyone will survive the remainder of the journey!

Murder at Sea is played just like a murder mystery game. You may be trying to solve the murder, but primarily you are (initially at least) concentrating on your own goals and objectives. Unlike most boxed murder mystery games, Murder at Sea lets you decide how to achieve your goals and thwart your enemies.

"Many of the people who came to play All at Sea were new to freeform games. We had a great time! Thanks!"
Melanie Westbrook, Oregon, United States

On the evening of the game the guests are met by the organizer. They then receive their detailed backgrounds - including dark secrets, objectives and money. When everyone has arrived Captain Bayard makes his introduction - then the lights go out and when they come back up Captain Bayard is dead!. The fun then begins as everyone questions, bribes and blackmails each other. As the evening progresses they may even try to murder one another! Finally, the Libertania arrives at its destination and everyone finds out how they did, and what secrets everyone else was concealing.

Extra characters

Sometimes you have too many guests and you need more characters. So we've written a free extra character for each of our games that you can add in, and some of our customers have created their own characters for their parties and are kindly willing to share them.

Please note that we haven't always tested these – and they may not tie in exactly with our games.
