The Plot

Valentine's Dasy Murder Mystery Party Kit: Love Writes as Deadly VerseLove is in the air at the Valentine's Day meeting of The Poets Turntable as this group of amateur and professional writers focuses on amore, liebe - yes, LOVE.

Romance abounds when each member rises, in turn, to thrill the audience with similes, metaphors and word pictures that make even the coldest hearts beat faster. 

But, in the middle of this memorable assemblage, one of the poets staggers to the stage, and, after uttering a few cryptic words, is overtaken by death. Someone has done in a fellow Turntable member in the midst of one of the year's most sentimental events.

But, it's time for poetic justice as everyone gathers to investigate the death and to find the culprit who turned Valentine's Day into a bad rhyme.


The Suspects
One of these poets will die. You'll have to buy the kit to find out which one.


Rose Prettel 
Florist and flower expert. Her verse has a certain air about it. Some people would call it an odor.

Harriet Heartly 
President of The Poets Turntable. She feels that some of the members aren't serious enough about their craft. 

Perry Sharpe 
The president of Sharpe Letter Openers. He's thinking of selling the family business to seek his fame as a full-time poet. 

Wilma Woolly 
Knitter and clothes designer. Her elaborate sweaters are sold to tourists for top dollar. She includes a personalized poem in every sale.

Seymour Lee 
The owner of Won Tun Tree's, the most popular Cantonese restaurant in the city. He's been known to recite his poetry to customers between courses.

Ben Tameter 
The poet laureate of the state. He was appointed by the governor to write verse and rhymes for official events.

Charity Homes 
Acclaimed poetess. Her works have been published in seven foreign countries. She's achieved more fame overseas than she has in her own backyard. 

Jonah Sweeps 
The custodian at City Hall. He has access to all sorts of official records when no one else is around. They are the inspiration for much of his poetry.

Sue P. Cooper 
The head baker at The Arrow Bakery. She has all of the ingredients to become a noteworthy poet.

Sherry Yujest 
A budding comedienne. Her works take a humorous look at life and love among the people she knows.  

Arpy Emms 
Mechanic and part-time chauffeur. He's been driving people crazy with his unusual rhymes.


You'll get everything you need, including . . .
  • Complete instructions on how to conduct the investigation. The investigation takes place on the day after the death. Your guests will be assembling to remember the life of the deceased poet and to recite the same poems they read on the night of the crime.
  • An account in The Open Book, the local newspaper, will describe what happened at the meeting of The Poets Turntable that occurred on the previous night.
  • Roles for all suspects that include family backgrounds and recollections of events surrounding the murder.
  • An invitation to the event.
  • Instructions for an Undercover Agent on how to facilitate the investigation. (With only 10 people, one of the suspects can do this.)
  • A series of written clues that can be exchanged or revealed.
  • Key supporting information.
  • "The Denouement" that is revealed at the end of the investigation and ties the event together. Remember: MOTIVE, MEANS and OPPORTUNITY will point to the guilty party.

Everyone who went absolutely loved it. Attendance increased each night, so we're sure that members of the audience were spreading the word and encouraging people not to miss it. It was a big hit, and we will most certainly have a crime mystery of some kind at least once a year.
