The Reality is Murder

It is 2003 and Tribal is Network 123's reality show where 12 people live on Moko Shanti, a beautiful tropical island for up to 40 days. Every few days, contestants vote each other off the island during Tribal Meetings. Now, only three contestants are left, and tonight is Tribal's finale.

Tonight, everyone has returned to the beach where the final Tribal Meeting will be broadcast live and the winner of the $1,000,000 prize will be decided.

Unfortunately, all is not well. Jeff Thompson, Tribal's creator and director, has been found dead on the beach – a machete embedded in his chest… Find out who killed Jeff Thompson in The Reality is Murder.

The Reality is Murder 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.

"Overall, players (experienced and new) had a really good time."

How Freeform Games Murder Mysteries Work

The Reality is Murder 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 Reality is Murder 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 Reality is Murder lets you decide how to achieve your goals and thwart your enemies.

"Keep up the good work … no one makes scripts like yours."
Nicole Brownlee, USA

On the evening of the game the guests are met by the organizer, the Events Manager, and welcomed to Moko Shanti. 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 Reality is Murder. Who will win Tribal? Who are ANTHRO? And of course, how did Jeff Thompson die? 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.
