Black Ink Mysteries™

A Black Ink Mysteries™ party or event are live-action role playing experiences where YOU become the characters who are suspects, witnesses, legal eagles or sleuths!

We offer bookcase mysteries, dinner games and large fundraising events where EVERY participant is a character in an original mystery created by Black Ink Mysteries.

Clever, delightful. Fun. Unique. No moving parts. No buttons, dials. Like art. MOMA. Coveting the thing. Tactile.
