Get everyone sat in a circle. Choose a “detective” to go out of the room. Amongst everyone remaining choose a “murderer.” Call the detective back in and get them to stand in the middle of the circle. The murderer then has to wink at people in the circle, without the detective noticing. When the “victims” are winked at, they have to do an elaborate death and fall over onto their backs. Once murdered, the student must stay dead for the entire game.
After each murder has occurred, the detective is allowed ONE guess as to who the murderer is. If the detective is wrong three times in a row (in other words, three different murders have taken place), the murderer wins the game. If the detective guesses correctly within the three rounds, the detective wins.
Instead of playing games that are based on three rounds, you can simply play until the detective guesses the murderer, or until the murderer murders the whole group.
