The Food is to Die For

At The Food is to Die For, Pierre Baudelaire's restaurant changes names faster than playboys change girlfriends. Nobody cares though, because the man's a genius, and makes food that is absolutely to die for. Everyone just called the restaurant "That place at the end of Maple" for years, until Pierre decided the joke was hilarious, and changed the restaurant's name, formally, to At the End of Maple.

Whatever the name, this is THE restaurant in town – where anyone who's anyone is seen dining. Celebrities, politicians, philanthropists, foodies, they all wait and wait for than chance to get a table. Tonight is a special night – C.J. Charles, the most discerning and respected restaurant critic in the business, is dining here and will write a review.

Most of the staff came in at 10 this morning to make sure all the preparations were in order, and took a break between 2 and 6pm, in time for the dinner service to start.

When they arrive though, Pierre is sprawled on the floor of his kitchen, in a puddle of beet soup and blood. Pierre was a gifted chef, but he made enemies. Who hated him enough to kill?

Get ready for an evening of delicious food, scandals started and revealed, and murder – and join us at The Food is to Die For!

The Food is to Die For 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.

How Freeform Games Murder Mysteries Work

The Food is to Die For 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 evening!

The Food is to Die For 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, The Food is to Die For lets you decide how to achieve your goals and thwart your enemies.

On the evening of the game the guests are met by the organizer and welcomed to At the End of Maple. They then receive their detailed backgrounds – including dark secrets, objectives and money. The fun then begins as they form alliances, blackmail each other, steal items and maybe even try to murder one another! Along the way they may uncover some of the mysteries of The Food is to Die For. Who is working for the Mob? Who is here under a false identity? Who is stealing wine, and who is defrauding the restaurant accounts? And, of course, who killed Pierre Baudelaire? Depending on what the players choose to do, there are several different possible endings, but finally 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.
