Catalog of Scripts
Homicide: The Game currently offers the following scripts:
Term Limits Strictly Enforced
Homicide: The Game - Term Limits Strictly Enforced allows participants to attend a reception held by Senator John Brash and be present at his official announcement of intent to seek re-election.
After the Senator is killed (in front of the audience), audience members are encouraged to assist in questioning the suspects in order to find out who pulled the trigger and who helped plan the murder.
For organizations with advanced multimedia capabilities, the endgame script may be performed with the assistance of video.
Singer Waxed at Terror Trax
Homicide: The Game - Singer Waxed at Terror Trax is a competitive murder mystery where teams attempt to solve the murder of almost music star Raychel Taurus.
Each team is allowed to question suspects, request police and crime lab reports, exchange information with other teams, search a suspect's premises, and arrest and assist in the prosecution of a suspect in a court of law.
If no one solves the murder, an endgame script is performed to show how the murder was committed.
