“Play The Detective” is a question answer game.  You will need to have guests gather in a certain area so that everyone can hear the story you are about to tell.  Once you have read the story, the guests can only ask “yes” or “no” questions. Once they think that they know the answer they can solve it.  If they are right, they win, if not, they are out of the game and will have to just watch. Here is the murder:

A man was found murdered one Sunday morning.

His wife immediately called the police.

The police questioned the wife and staff and was given these alibis:

The Wife said she was in bed reading a book.
The Cook claimed she cooking breakfast.
The Gardener claimed he was planting seeds.
The Maid claimed she was getting the mail.
The Butler claimed he polishing the silver.

The police instantly arrested the murdered. Who did it and how did they know?

Answer: It was the maid.  She said that she went to check the mail but there is no mail on Sundays.
