    1. Lots of fun, tricky on zoom

      We hosted this for our New Years party and everyone seemed to enjoy it. It was tricky to facilitate, talk about clues, and reveal the murder over zoom. It was also much faster virtually since there was less mingling and some optional games didn't apply.
      We do agree that it would be tricky on a video chat, as this is not a virtually formatted game. We're glad you pulled it off, but it's best if you stick with the virtual games here: Thank you for your feedback! Great to know it's possible to pull off!

    2. Best New Years Eve Party

      The event was a great hit, so many compliments for our guests. They are already talking about and planning for next year. on Jan 7th 2020

    3. Great New Year's Eve Murder Mystery

      This was my second Murder Mystery and we recently did it for NYE. It was fun, on the easy side so a great game for beginners. As far as New Year's Eve themed, it wasn't super "As the Ball Drops" but that was fine. I'd recommend to new crowds trying to do a murder mystery on NYE. on Jan 6th 2020

    4. Very clear instructions

      We have never done a murder mystery party and so not sure what to expect. Everyone came in costume and kept their characters for the most part of the evening. All in all, everyone had a great time and I would definitely do another one. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. on Jan 2nd 2020
