Cudham Riding Club
Downloadable Murder Mystery Game for Fourteen to Forty People
Skulduggery, adultery, coercion and death set amongst the horsey set of Rural England. Saddle up for a murder!
A plot with as many twists, turns and tangles as the best of Jilly Cooper, Joanna Trollope and Dick Francis. In this gripping detective game, everyone plays a character connected in some way to an awfully English riding club. Its Chairwoman has died after falling off her horse. The police suspect foul play but no one seems to have a reason for wanting her dead.
Besides unriddling who or what killed her, characters have other important club business to attend to: electing a new Chairwoman, buying and selling horses, trying to prevent anyone finding out what they are really getting up to. Bets are taken, too, on the Isle of Man Handicap. This is a race for horses owned by club members which takes place before the mystery ends.
Apart from making lots of money and not being shamed or arrested, everyone’s main aim is to identify the murderer. Unless, of course, you did it - in which case you’ll try to put the blame on someone (or something) else.
Homicide, horse-trading and horrid goings-on: this is a murder mystery in which it’s not just the horses which get taken for a ride!
When is this whodunit set?
You can choose. Cudham Riding Club has a timeless feel about it which makes it fit pretty much any era you fancy. There are a couple of modern-day references in it, but these can easily be explained away on the night. It lends itself particularly well to being re-set any time in the early-to-mid Twentieth Century.

Age Rating/Content Rating
The behaviour of some of the characters in “Cudham Riding Club” is appalling: they take drugs, they gamble, they cheat on their partners, they kill. As a result, we consider the plot to be suitable only for people aged 15 and over.
