    1. Great way to spend New Year’s Eve!

      We hosted this party with 10 guests,ages ranging from 13-70. Everyone arrived to the party in character ready to play. Each round of play was very easy to navigate through and the game went extremely smooth. Everyone had so much fun trying to solve the murder. I would highly recommend this party! on Jan 8th 2022

    2. NYE 2020 was one to remember!

      We absolutely loved this game!! 8 of us played for NYE and we had the best night. Everyone loved their role / character and had so much fun getting into character. We all dressed up and that made the night even more fun. I was the host and it only required a hour or so of preparation. We had such a fun night and will be doing another game again soon!! we only had 8 players and it worked out but I think having the recommended 12 players would make it even better but overall was great, 10/10 recommend!!!! good for all ages. We had a group of 3 teens, 3 college age and 2 adults. on Jan 11th 2021

      Good, clean, fun. My family and I participated in the murder mystery game "As The Ball Drops, In Time Square" as a new years celebration. All of us had a great time participating in the game. It was very well detailed and easy to follow for a first time murder mystery players. Would highly recommend. on Jan 7th 2021

    4. So much fun!

      We did this for New Year this year with 2 families. There were 5 kids ages ranging from 12-16 and four adults. We had so much fun. It was so well organized! We can’t wait to try another one! on Jan 5th 2021
