'80s Murder Mystery Game
Like, totally! Hosting this super silly, in-person (face-to-face traditional mingling format) '80s murder mystery party will result in a hilarious evening for 8-18+ players, ages 14+. 40 unique players with both expansion packs (17F, 20M, 3E), can be expanded to over 70 guests (see below for how to host a large party with this game). This is the instant download upon purchase version of the game - no waiting, download instantly, and there's nothing to ship, so you avoid shipping fees! Easy to host, easy to prepare. For the boxed version, scroll down to the link below 'helpful links,' and let our staff prepare your game kit for you.
For a night of glam rock, pop icons, Mogwai scandals, vampire bats, and Rubik's cubes, this is the game for you! Warning: this game is lighthearted and not to be taken seriously, as it's all about the Radical Eighties with a fun spin on things to make your players laugh all night!
There multiple files to download - host instructions, printables, and a solution key. You're also able to download the free invitation below under 'helpful links,' and it will also be listed with the downloads. You will also have an optional download for the expandable team.

I love all the murder mysteries I have bought They are a lot of fun, and I love all the different characters. I host these at work when we do an employee day and everyone has so much fun. It is nice to see co-workers enjoying their day, laughing and sharing with each other. Great office party idea.
This game is fun, easy to host, and gets all of the guests involved.
We had a great time playing this game. This is our second murder mystery party from this company and we were just as pleased with this set.
Threw this one for my office party and it was an instant hit!! We had participants of all age ranges 17 to 55 and everyone fit in perfectly. The night flowed smoothly and everyone left super stoked for another one! Would highly recommend!
I cannot say enough about this product. The day before our daughter’s 12th birthday party (a sleepover) the forecast changed to 100% rain all day. Our plan had been swimming, bonfire and outdoor movie for 14 preteens. You can imagine I was stressed when the plans changed. I purchased the download from the site, read all the materials and made name tags. I was worried that the girls wouldn’t know who the characters were, so I printed images and attached it to the name tags. This was 3 hrs of solid entertainment! We didn’t play games between because they couldn’t wait to get to the next part. I can’t wait to order another version and use all the extras that are provided for pre-party.
We had an amazing time with this game! One thing I would suggest is to make sure all guests are following the solution cards appropriately. Some of our guests revealed the murder too soon, however we still had an amazing time!!!!!
Everyone loved it, the characters were great. This was my first time hosting and it was very easy. We can't wait to play another one!!
We loved it! We were able to mingle and move around while talking and gathering clues, It helped that everyone came in character and got into it! It was great!
We had a wonderful time solving this 80's themed mystery. It was a group of 12 high school students and they loved dressing up, bringing popular 80's foods, a totally rad playlist, and the fun bonus games kept the party rolling. Thanks for a great event!
