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.

    Great activity!

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 11th 2020

    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!

    My Sister’s 40th Birthday

    Posted by Sydnee on May 16th 2020

    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.

    Best 40th Birthday Ever!

    Posted by Becky Buzzi on Jan 29th 2020

    I was amazed how much fun this was to do! I chose to do the 80's murder mystery for my 40th birthday, cause like duh, I was born in 1980! I had 31 people participate and I have to say everyone took their characters very seriously! I printed off the packages and gave them all to my friend to organize, I didn't want to know anything about what was going to happen. She contacted everyone about a month before the party, I would say a month seemed like a decent amount of time for everyone to plan their characters. A week before the party she sent out the pre game so everyone had to contact a character, this was fun because there were total strangers bashing each other! I decorated the tables in 80's candy, pink popcorn, nerds, runts ect everyone loved having snacks and grown adults got to take loot bags home! I am so sad all the hype is over...but so happy that it was an amazing night! I will be doing many more of these! I wish I could post pictures!

    Like, We Loved It!

    Posted by Polly Abdool on Dec 16th 2019

    I got this package for my husband's 31st birthday party (he was born in the 80s), and we all had so much fun! A week out, everyone started enjoying putting their costumes together and completing the easy, optional pre-game tasks. At the party, the game flowed easily and my friends & family had fun getting into character! Even the people who weren't as excited to do a Murder Mystery Party (compared to the people who were LOVING the idea) told me they had so much fun! We had a group of 14, and very few people in the group had spent quality time together before - this was totally fine, and a fun way for people in our life to bond!

    Awesome time

    Posted by Brent Chapman on Dec 9th 2019

    We did this one for my daughters 16th birthday. She had 10 friends over. We had 9 females and 1 male, but we made it work. They were a little apprehensive about everything at first, but once they got going, my wife and I sat back and watched them and it was hilarious to watch. The only thing I wish is that the male and female roles were a little more flexible for something like this but it definitely didn’t hinder the fun everyone had.

    Great time!

    We purchased the 80’s murder mystery party for a evening with friends! Everyone really got into character and it was a very fun night! Easy scripts to follow and the evening flowed well by following the suggested timeline. This is our 4th party and we can’t wait to plan the next one!
