Interactive entertainment has never been more popular than it is today. Many forms of interactive entertainment are enjoying a wave of newfound popularity that seems on the precipice of even more growth. The reasons for this are up for discussion. Perhaps it is a reaction to the increase time we spend in front of screens. Almost all of our entertainment comes from a screen in some form, whether it’s the movie theater, your television screen, your computer, or phone. With so much time in front of screens, it is no wonder that many humans are seeking out old fashioned entertainment like plays, musicals and classical music concerts. And this reaction to screen-based entertainment is taking the more innovative form of interactive entertainment as well. Board games are being developed that are more involved, interactive and unique than ever before. Another of these interactive entertainment options is the murder mystery dinner. Murder mystery dinners involve a unique combination of aspects that are found singularly in other forms of entertainment. Of course, the dinner that is provided is usually delicious and that is something everyone can get behind. The mystery aspect is where the interactive entertainment comes in. It gives everyone an opportunity to exercise their problem solving skills in a relaxed, group setting. People are attending murder mystery dinners for a variety of occasions.
