This is an expansion pack including 8+ additional characters for the 'Gravestone...a Wild West Murder Mystery' Murder Mystery Party (see the character list below).
This document should be printed in addition to the original Gravestone Murder Mystery Party kit. This is not a complete 'stand alone' game - it is only to be purchased if you are needing up to 8 additional characters for the 'Gravestone...A Wild West Murder Mystery' murder mystery game.
Note: this expansion pack must be played before adding expansion pack #2. Do not purchase expansion pack #2 without purchasing expansion pack #1.
There is an expandable player (Dom Horn) in this kit that can be expanded up to 15 additional team players to play as Pinkertoon Detectives. This will be a separate file for you to download with this purchase - simply disregard this file if you don't need to use the expandable team. This is the Electronic version - immediate download via a pdf file.
Instructions were helpful as to how to integrate expansion with basic kit characters.
We played this for a party of 15 for my husbands birthday. We did a facebook invite to assign characters and I was thrilled to see the effort everyone put into their costumes. The character roles really engaged everyone and the mystery aspect kept people intrigued and involved. There is so much that goes along with this theme for decorating and costumes and food that make it really easy to host as well. This was our second murder mystery party! The prep work is a thing but well worth it for the fun memories.
This was our second Mystery Party experience. All 18 of us (age range from 15-80) had a grand time. I am amazed by how much effort our guests put into their costumes and developing their character. I did my part by transforming our home into a Wild West Saloon and serving up the kinda grub that would make a rancher grin - we even had s'mores! It's true that there is a lot of prep that goes into hosting a party like this, but it's so worth it. We will most likely be making this an annual event!
We used the expansion pack for a party of 14 and it worked great!
I'm a Youth Pastor at a local church and I have a bunch of actors that attend my youth group. So I thought I would try out a Murder Mystery. We invited just the high school students and had about 15 people join us. We purchased the expansion to accommodate everyone. Below are the positives and negatives. Positives - Really easy to work through the evening (I have never done this before and it went very smoothly) - Really easy for teenagers to understand the point of each round. (I had one or two that struggled, but they weren't putting in much effort) - Easy instructions for set up. Negatives - It did take a while to divide clue's into envelopes, cut maps, and plan evening. But it was just me, and they offer to do it all for you for a fee. So just know you will have some work on your hands. (About 3 - 4 hours) Although it was my first time, next time I bet it goes much quicker. We plan on doing this again. I don't think I've heard that much laughter in a long time. What a great event.
This was a great murder game. I got this and the expansion pack because we had 24 people and it really added to the fun of dressing up. Even though the expansion people weren't the main characters, they didn't know it. The scripts were written in a way where it could have been anyone in the whole group. A very fun time and I will recommend this to anyone who wants to host their own Murder mystery dinner. Instructions and very detailed scripts were very easy to follow and helped make this a night to remember. Thank you!
