Mystery Synopsis


An official Doomsday announcement was made by NASA scientists that an unexpected group of asteroids will strike Earth in only ten days, leading to mass devastation around the globe. Top astrophysicists have exhausted all efforts to prevent the collisions, and the outlook for the planet is quite grim.

The Vampire, Sorcerer, and Werewolf Factions have formally announced their existence to the humans and have arranged a meeting to form an alliance and strategize against this cluster of cosmic boulders to save the world. They believe with their combined skills; they will be able to ban together and stop this catastrophe in the nick of time. That is, if this unprecedented gathering goes well.

The Factions have agreed to meet at the former house of horrors of New Orleans, Louisiana—Dauphine Place, a legendary residence of the French Quarter. This will be the first time in history that supernatural beings have met with the humans.  Will the alliance save the world, or start the apocalypse early?

This is where your story begins.

    Everyone had a blast!

    We wanted to host a different kind of Halloween party, so we decided to try a murder mystery dinner night. Everything was sent for a successful evening! All details were well thought out. It was such a fun night! Everyone got right into character and acted their parts. Costumes were unbelievable! The decor consisted of skulls, cobwebs, eerie floating candles with color themes in black, white and purple (Definitely New Orleans style) I would recommend this game! The only disappointment was that it didn't conclude whether or not we saved the earth (which was the ultimate purpose of our gathering) Great night otherwise! We will purchase another game in the future! ------------------------------------ My Mystery Party: thank you for your valuable feedback. We have taken your advice and tightened up the story ending for this game. We always strive to improve and we are glad you had a blast!

    Awesome Halloween themed party

    This one was so much fun. We have more men that play so not many are happy playing female roles. Still, everyone enjoyed themselves.

    Great time had by all. The costumes were phenomenal, the story was intriguing and everything went smoothly. Due to time constraints, we couldn't play the bonus games, but they looked like fun and we plan to play later.
