Jury Duty - Virtual Murder Mystery
Your team has been summoned as a remote juror for an online trial. Can you crack the case?
A man was found dead. You have been summoned as remote jurors for an online trial. Is the accused guilty or has he been framed? Find out if there’s more to this case than meets the eye. The clock is ticking and you have only 105 minutes to crack this case.
This online crime-solving experience is a surefire way to foster collaboration among peers and enhance problem-solving skills. The game is hosted via Zoom and is hosted by a facilitator who provides participants with the storyline and then sends them to breakout rooms where they examine clues, interact with each other, and exchange ideas to solve the mystery.
A day before the event, participants will receive a court summary and a link to Zoom where the activity will take place online. Teams will have a set of interactive evidence including a “police database”. You may also receive a phone call with additional clues to help you out!
Jury Duty is a collaborative ‘whodunnit’ that’s highly recommended for team-building activities such as brainstorming sessions, icebreaker exercises, and some much-needed remote office fun! Jury Duty is one of those murder mysteries that combines creativity and logical thinking for a truly memorable office party.

Jury Duty is a complex and engaging game that requires your team to collaborate and solve riddles together. Jury Duty is about finding the truth. Teams are split into two groups and work together to examine interactive evidence, including a police database. You’ll get to question the accused who is played by a professional actor and they may even receive a phone call for additional clues during the event. The event requires remote teams to get their brains working. Such events are great for getting everyone to share their opinions. If you’re looking for a more relaxed and fun option, we recommend taking a look at our list of virtual team-building activities.
Invite all your team members to the event at least two weeks before the event to finalize the number of participants. We recommend asking participants to turn on their cameras for a more intimate experience. We’ll also need a list of all the participants along with their email addresses and phone numbers at least 4 days before the event. ( The information provided is used for the purpose of the game only.)
Your team will simply need their laptops or PCs, a stable internet connection, the latest version of Google Chrome, headphones, and Zoom to participate. Remember to coordinate with the whole team when picking a suitable time for your team, particularly if they are located in different parts of the world.
Yes! Since we’ll need the list of participants prior to the event, you can pre-arrange the two teams, if you want specific members to be part of a certain team. This is a perfect way to make sure that current employees get to know the new joiners. Since the game can accommodate 8-20 players, this is a great team-building experience to fully engage remote employees.
