The games on this page are all published by Peaky Games, a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting freeform style games – very similar to our murder mystery games. The main differences between these and our games is:
- They often don’t have a murder.
- They often use nerd/geek tropes.
- These games assume that you have some experience in running and playing them – and the instructions aren’t as comprehensive as ours.
- Support for these games isn’t provided by Freeform Games, it’s provided by Peaky Games. (Although as both Mo and Steve belong to Peaky Games and have co-written some of the games, there is quite a bit of overlap).
- The games aren’t as flexible for the numbers of players as our regular games.
- They often don’t have rules, and expect the GMs to use their judgement. (That’s another reason why we suggest you play one of our games first – and you can use our standard rules if you want to.)
But with the right group the Peaky Games are a lot of fun, and we’re delighted to bring them to you.
The Peaky Games freeforms

- The Day the Music Died: Set at Radio Rebecca, the grooviest radio station in the English Channel in 1965. The Day the Music Died is for 10 guests plus a host, aged 12+
- Small Town Folks: Macy, Nebraska, in 1962 is a small town like any other. But when the hurricane approaches, twelve people are trapped by a storm. Tensions rise, secrets spill, and long-buried rivalries erupt… Small Town Folks is for 12 guests plus a host, aged 15+.
Our kids’ party games, Pirate Island, Trick or Treat and Monster Mash were also written by Peaky Games, although published by us.
