  • Product Description

    Like, totally! Hosting this super silly '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!

    Note: this game was revised on 9/6/18 to remove the Wee Pee Vermon character and replace with Dave Bouie.  The new version is available on your account if you have purchased the game within the last year. If you are playing the previous version, it will not be seamless with the new version's expansion packs. If you already have the game and need the old version's invite with Wee Pee Vermon, click here

    1. So much Fun and Easy to play!

      We did this for my wife’s birthday and had a blast!
      It was really fun and easy to follow along. Even the guests we didn’t expect to get into character, Really got into it! I can’t say enough how much fun it was! My wife loved it and so did all of our friends!

    2. Fun Party

      We hosted this party for my daughter's 16th birthday. Everyone had a blast! on Jul 14th 2020

    3. Great activity!

      We were looking for an exciting family activity for my daughter's birthday, which unfortunately occurred during quarantine. This was perfect. Would have been better with more people (we were limited to family only) but everyone enjoyed it. They all dressed up and got into it. It's a great theme and a lot of fun. Now that I've done it, I would be able to do another one easily and it would be even better! on Jun 11th 2020

    4. My Sister’s 40th Birthday

      My sister-in-law turned 40 this month, and unfortunately, the country is in the midst of a public health crisis which makes going all out to celebrate nearly impossible. Nonetheless, the family came together and thought this going back to the 80s and trying something she has always wanted to try, a murder mystery party, would be a good way to both celebrate her and get our mind off the pandemic.

      The term success is an understatement, when it comes to this game. My family had so much fun getting into and staying in character, playing their roles, and trying to figure out whodunit. It was a great game filled with both mystery and comedy. We have two preteens in our family, and the fact that they were able to participate in the clean and funny humor was a definite bonus. As the host, I loved the detailed instructions and organization of the game. I followed the outline and timeline which made the evening go smoothly. My family also enjoyed the bonus games. I went off script a bit with the bonus games, with incentives such as; the winner gets to make their dinner plate or choose their dessert first.

      This was exactly what we needed during such a trying time. We cannot wait to try more games the site has to offer, but I would definitely recommend playing this game.
