A hilarious family Christmas non murder mystery party game set in the North Pole! A fun Christmas-spirited (non-murder) mystery party for 8-16+ guests, ages 12 to 112! There is an expandable Elf character that can be expanded to as many optional characters as you need! This is the instant download upon purchase version of the game - no waiting, no shipping fees! Easy to host, easy to prepare.
If you have done the T'was the Night Before Murder game, this game will be too similar - as this is the 'non-murder' version of the T'was the Night 'murder' game. This is the traditional in-person, mingling format. If you need a virtual game for Christmas to play on Zoom or other video chat platform - we got your back. Click here for the virtual selection. At this time, we do have a murder and non-murder virtual Christmas game.
It’s time for the annual pre-Christmas meeting at Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus’s home in the North Pole. This is the bustling time of the year when Christmas workers need to stop working for a moment and come together to discuss how Christmas is unraveling. The meeting attendees are set to arrive at Santa’s holiday-spirited home. In true Christmas spirit, they will enjoy delicious appetizers and engage in fun Christmas party games before the meeting kicks off. Mrs. Claus will serve a scrumptious holiday dinner—nobody in the North Pole would want to miss that! Rudy the Rosy-nosed reindeer has been in rare form this season. Suspicious things have been happening around town, but with the hustling and bustling – nobody has the time to investigate what’s going on! Hopefully, Rudy will show up to the meeting and all will go as planned. There’s not a minute to spare this time of the year so the children on the nice list can get their presents on Christmas morning! Unexpected drama could be disastrous! This is where your story begins.
Invite the following guests to play the roles below:
When you use an expandable team, you will assign each team member to the lead character on the character list. For example, invite 16 members to play the role of Gab the Elf. When the guests arrive, they are to assemble into a team and select a lead character. One player will actually play the role during the game and the rest of the members will play along as Gab the Elf's crew. The expandable players will receive duplicate materials to their team during the game. They will mingle about and play just like everybody else, but they will not have unique clues to their character, but rather to their team leader. These roles are great to expand the guest list while giving everybody a role in the game. Assign the most outgoing players to the unique players and the more shy/reserved guests to the expandable players.

We had a family mystery party with 8 people ranging in age from 12 to 71. We used the game as an evening activity. Since we were all family we did not use the ice-breaker trivia questions in Round 1. But we did share a few and found them to be very entertaining. We also did not do the word scramble from Round 2 due to time constraints. We all loved the evening and would definitely like to try another mystery game. Unknown on Jan 1st 2020
I was looking for something new to do and I think I found it. This was so much fun, my adult children loved it. What a great day! Melissa Grassmann on Dec 12th 2017
