The Shade Hallow Manor is a 17th-century mansion in Dark Cloud, which is an isolated town covered in dense fog. Built in 1670 by a legendary author named Shade Hallow, the estate is now an unkempt eyesore. In his day, Mr. Hallow was beloved and treated as royalty, as his literary works were loved by all.
Shade Hallow Manor has elegant architectural features, albeit they have been weathered throughout the years. Weeds have replaced the flowering shrubs and ornamental trees that once adorned the property. The final members of the Hallow lineage passed away in the early 1700’s, leaving Shade's estate in the hands of the townspeople. The people have neglected the place, mostly due to the legend that Shade Hallow’s ghost roams the corridors at night.
A majority of the townspeople have banned together and hope to remodel and reinstate the property as a historical bed and breakfast. They believe the old estate can generate tourism and income for Dark Cloud. Most people stand behind the idea, although a few are adamantly against the pursuit – claiming the manor’s haunted and should be left alone.
Most of the dusty cobwebs have been swept away, and the Halloween bash is underway. You live in Dark Cloud and are on the fence with whether or not you support the idea of hosting an event there. You have been invited to attend, and this is where your story begins…

I threw this murder mystery party for my husband birthday and we had a blast! The game was organized and very easy to follow, which I loved! I loved the idea suggestions! None of my guest had ever experienced a party like this so they were a little skeptical at first but once everyone got into it it was so much fun! I am about to order my second game for the kids for Halloween! Definitely a repeat customer here! Shannon on Oct 30th 2020
Played with 7 kids—12 to 15... everyone had fun. The clues kept us guessing and the characters were really all very fun. Loved the unisex characters — maximum flexibility. We will buy another. Sara on Oct 22nd 2020
We did this Dark Cloud mystery party for my birthday! It was fun and detailed. The whole family ebjoyed dressing up and getting into character. I am glad we started a week out because everyone had time to make their character their own. We will be doing this again! Rachael on Sep 6th 2020
My friends and I enjoy a good murder mystery. We all dress up and really get into it. This was a great story and had a lot of us fooled til the very end. It was so easy to order this game online and then download the information for the parts, characters, costumes and narratives. Pretty easy to follow. The company will assist you if you have trouble with part of the story. We didn't need any assistance. But there were lots of fun and laughs! We decorated the house, but you don't have to. I will look to the company again for our next one! Thanks! Deb on Oct 28th 2019
