I did this with a group of 8 people and we had SUCH a fun time! I was worried about whether or not people would get into character, but with everything this product provided, it was hard not to! We had a really great time and learned a lot... we definitely want to do another one again!
I will mention, I had a friend who couldn't come do a lot of the organizing of the cards in envelopes for me. I was really thankful for that, because it would have been difficult to cut out and place each person's round 2 and 3 cards in their envelopes without anything being ruined. If the host is planning on playing, I recommend finding someone to do this for you! Stephanie on Jan 5th 2021
I hosted my first murder mystery party with a bunch of friends and family.. it was 20 people so all of the characters were played. I’m honestly surprised at how much fun everyone had. I sent out the character roles 2 days prior to the party and I told everyone it was optional to dress in character but the majority of my guests dressed up which was awesome. Everyone really got into the game and played they’re characters well. I was nervous about making someone a victim but the person who played the victim really loved it. I hosted it but I also played a character. I will be purchasing another game because I have a lot of people telling me how they want to do this again. Joy on Nov 10th 2020
We threw this together in about 24 hours - It still worked out great. We even did the pre -game Texts. That was so fun because we had things to talk about as the guests arrived from the second I opened the door as the host. We did the block party in the winter but still did Hamburgers and Block party type food and stated that due to the inclement weather we had to move the party inside. We decorated Tiki Bar type decorations. I feel like it is super important to set the stage and stay in character. It made all the difference. The game is super easy to follow and clear and concise directions. I was the host and still played - I did not look at any of the cards and I had no idea who the murderer was~! I would do this again and buy another game for sure! Kellyin L Molinari on Jan 6th 2020
These are put together very well, which makes it easy to host a mystery. We have had nothing but great comments from attendees. Thomas Weiland on Dec 12th 2019
