'80s Murder Mystery Party
Like, totally! Hosting this super silly '80s murder mystery party (face-to-face traditional mingling format) will result in a hilarious evening for a minimum of 8 players, ages 14+. There are seven kit sizes for this game, so you can invite up to 70 players with the largest kit size. If you want a silly 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 twist!
Spoil yourself, and choose the party ready option above, and our dedicated staff will fold and slip your clue cards for rounds one, two, and three into the envelopes to prevent you from seeing spoilers on the round cards. Without the party ready option selected, you will have some assembly required with your kit and there will be spoilers upon opening the kit and viewing the rounds 2 and 3 clue cards.
Note: The download version is a different product and does not come with the party pack, as they are not seamless and materials should not be used together.

Was much better than we expected. Everyone was engaged and stayed in character for most of the night. It was great for people who did not know each other to break the ice and many new friends were had. We all can't wait to do another.
Fab time had by my group.
Ha ha ha ha ha - that's what we did all night. Fab time had by my group.
Definitely get the kit
I'm a long time host with this company and this game was fantastic (as always - the mysteries are all so different and fun). I'd suggest getting the kit - I've always elected for the download and DIY, but it seems like a lot of cash to give up for this, but it's worth it.
