    1. Great

      The content was fun and we loved the theme. on Jan 4th 2019

    2. Best birthday ever!

      Hosted the 80s murder mystery for my daughters 14th birthday, and from her mouth “best birthday party ever” I was so happily surprised at how all the kids really got into character and they ALL had a blast, boys and girls! Will definitely do another one!
      Tips: definitely watch the how to host video and plan ahead if you are preparing the kit yourself, it’s not hard at all, directions were clear and concise

    3. Great for a Birthday Party

      This was a great game that was easy to host and handle. We used the game and the first expansion pack for a 30th birthday with 28 guests. Highly recommend. on Jan 22nd 2018

    4. Easy to implement and very customizable

      I ordered this game for a birthday party (there are four of us with October birthdays, and I love the 80s, so this was perfect). I thought an unscripted double blind mystery might be challenging, but it actually went quite smoothly. The unscripted nature (where each character has certain goals to accomplish in each round) allowed people to express themselves and get creative, and I think we had far more laughs than we would have with a purely scripted event. The additional games are fun to help fill out the evening, and I did take advantage of a couple of the included recipes (two of the drinks, in particular). The players not knowing who the victim was until the appropriate time and who the murderer was until the end kept everyone involved and thinking. The person who ended up being the victim was given another role to play after their death so they could continue to participate. Even the people attending who did not want roles actually became quite involved in the banter. The outcome of the game was logical and not terribly difficult to figure out when examining means motive, and opportunity (with some games, the murderer makes no sense). The flexibility of this game also made it easy to do some last minute cast changes, as two guests had a family emergency and were unable to attend. We thoroughly enjoyed this game and I would order another from this website. on Oct 26th 2017
