Mystery Synopsis - If you loved the Bloodwood Masquerade Ball, this is volume 2!
The neighborhood socialites have touted the Hatter’s Ball as the bash of the year in the isolated town of Bloodworth Falls. Mayor Riley White has organized the event in the old Bloodwood Castle as a diversion from the scandals that have plagued the town in recent months. Of course, it’s no coincidence the ball is scheduled right before the upcoming mayoral election.
The mayor posted the invite list online, and your adversaries have already sent in their RSVPs. You’re intrigued and have decided you cannot miss an opportune moment to seek revenge on those who have crossed you in the past. Now, you are on a hunt for the perfect hat.
This is where your story begins.

My 15 year old daughter did this party for 8 girls. They all dressed up and wore hats and had a great time. It was simple to follow and everyone loved that someone died in the second act. We have purchased other murder mysteries parties but this one was by far the least complicated and easiest to follow. The plot line was easy to follow but still left room for the characters to put their own flare to it. Would highly recommend I especially for first time party goers and large groups (but was just as much fun for a small group)!
First impressions were just awesome - Nancy was very helpful with my sluggish decisions and tons of questions. They have excellent customer service. Second, the game was amazing - me and my friends had the best time. SO sticking with these guys - customer for life.
My guests went ALL OUT with this party and we had a blast figuring out whodunit! Now all of my friends think they're Sherlock Holmes ;-) Thanks for putting together such a wonderful party. Rita from Houston
