I bought this pack for my 24th birthday party and it was a hit! I was glad you could download it right away because I only planned a week ahead. The instructions were easy to follow. I bought the expansion pack. We had about 25 players. Everyone had a blast! Good for all ages. The masquerade theme was so fun because everyone dressed the part! I would highly recommend this party.
We had a party of 20, plus two hosts. It was very easy to manage a somewhat fluid guest list right up to the day of the party. The most awesome thing was that no one had figured out who did it until only three people were left to confess. Well done!
Great time for friends and family. Started the guests off with a few drinks to loosen them up and let the fun begin.
Our group had a smashing success. Easy to follow instructions and great mystery.
I got this product and was able to put it together quickly and it gave me step by step instructions. Thank you!!
