Paranormal fans! This will be a night to remember for 6-13 players, ages 15+. Each outrageous character is inspired from one of the thirteen spooky short stories in the new book by our award winning author, Dr. Bon Blossman, and Zakk Myer - A Book of Creeps & Haunts. The game includes YA horror content, including ghosts, demons, witches, aliens, zombies, black magic. However, like the rest of our games, there is no foul language, sexual content, highly-inappropriate content, or drug references. This is the instant download version of the game - no shipping fees, no waiting, no hassle. This game takes approximately 2 hours to play.

The town of Amity Hill has been plagued with supernatural activity recently, and the residents have decided to band together and fight the unseen forces. Reports of alien invasions, evil ghosts, and other paranormal entities, have spread around town. The epicenter of the incidents has predominantly been in the neighborhood of Dreadthorn Oaks. Bartholomew Mugwort, the infamous founder of Mugwort, Inc., has agreed to host the gathering at his estate. You are one of the unfortunate individuals who have been overwhelmed by unnatural happenings of late. You have a regretful history with Mr. Mugwort, but you will put it aside and attend this meeting with bells on. This is where your story begins.
|Minimum age:||15 for horror content (ghosts, demons, witches, aliens, zombies, black magic). However, like the rest of our games, there is no foul language, sexual content, or drug references.|
|Number of players:||6-13 (can be played with 4-5, but you'll need to have the packets available for the missing required players.)|
|Gender:||6 required players (3 either gender, 3 female) and 7 optional (4 female, 3 male).|
|Expandable or Expansion pack?:||No, 13 is the max for this game. Have others play as creepy Mugwort Staff if you need more. The optimal number of characters in a virtual game is 10 or less.|
We played the mystery via zoom between 10 family members in 6 different households. Most of us had paired up to cover the primary characters and one person took the role of one of the secondary characters. We had a blast! Everyone was prepared and really got into their characters, including costumes. Everyone also got into the pre-game portion, which went on all day prior to the evening when we played game. We got so involved in the game that after 2.5 hours we ran out of time to do the alternate endings. Everyone liked the fact that no one knew who the murderer was. We definitely plan doing another one in the near future and we highly recommend it.

We played as part of a "together, apart" team building event and had a blast playing! Everyone got really into it. We learned a member of our team can do a wicked Jersey accent! The puzzles were challenging, but not impossible. You really needed to work as a team to figure them out. No one was able to do all of them by themselves, which was cool.
Getting started was a little confusing, but I think that'd be inherent in any game the first time around. The primary storyline is tight; some of the secondary ones felt like they really came out of left field, but were hilarious because of that when they were revealed!
You really do need at least two screens to play though. One to see everyone and one to view the player packets or host packet and any side chatting you need/want to do. If you don't have multi-screens or devices, would definitely recommend printing things out. Unknown on Aug 11th 2020
We loved this murder mystery party pack. The mix of visual and printed materials was great. The time allotment was accurate. As the host, I loved having the checklist and timeline that were included. Only negative is that we wanted to play again! But this pack was a once and done. Be prepared with printer ink as each player has a packet of materials 14 pages long.
From MMP Staff:
For the virtual games - no printing is needed. If your players have access to two devices - one for viewing the PDF and the other for the video chat (i.e. Zoom) - they do not need to print anything. Most people use a phone or iPad to view and their laptop or PC to video chat. We are so glad you had a blast! Veronica StanleyHooper on Jul 6th 2020
I've participated in over 10 murder mystery parties, and run at least 7.
This was the first one I did virtually, and I think it was by far one of the best mystery parties I've ever experienced.
Virtual games take much less prep time - no printing/prepping clues/etc.
The videos/virtual backgrounds help set the scene with no extra money spent on decorations.
People were way more comfortable fully embracing their characters when they were not interacting face to face in person.
The riddles and solution were very well done. Solved by most, but not all.
I LOVED IT. Thank you so much! Nicole on Jun 6th 2020
