Join us in a civilized evening of espionage, code-breaking, backstabbing, and graduating with honours. You will be in the middle of the action and it will be up to you to wheel and deal with the other guests. Can you achieve your goals, keep your secrets hidden and survive The Spy Who Killed Me? It's up to you.
Welcome to Maudlin College, an institution with prestigious roots and an even more promising future. As we are nearing the end of the last term of the year, it is time to celebrate a hard year's work -- in the lab, the library, and on the water -- at the glorious Summer Ball. Maudlin College's best and brightest have gathered for a evening of celebration recognizing the recipients of prestigious research grants, and academic as well as athletic scholarships, which will be renewed -- or not -- this evening.
It should be cause for celebration -- but the evening is more sedate than planned; as the musicians arrived this evening, the Head Porter announced that Beth Garnet, one of this evening's student honorees, was found dead in her room. There are whispers about that Beth lost her life because of her involvement in espionage -- if that is true, she cannot be the only secret agent in the college.
The Spy Who Killed Me is for 14-18 players plus a host, and it was written to be suitable for adults or for kids down to the age of 15.

The Spy Who Killed Me 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 Spy Who Killed Me 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 Spy Who Killed Me 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, the Head Porter, and welcomed to Maudlin College. 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 Spy Who Killed Me. Who is a double agent? Who leads the secretive Holly and Oak Society? Who is a professional assassin, and who is the mysterious 'Elsie'? What is the secret of the cryptogram? 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.
