You’ve received your invitation to Holly’s party. This is where your story begins.
For example, there are 10 character roles on the character list available with the main game. Assign all 10 players to these roles first. The game can be hosted with up to 10 players playing unique character roles, solving 5 mysteries. The players can solve the mysteries as individuals, or as one big team (suggested for younger groups). If you add the 4 character expansion pack, you are adding 4 unique players and 4 more mysteries to solve in the game. The game can be played with 14 players solving 9 mysteries.
For large parties: to add players, add up to 9 additional players on each of the first 5 required character roles, totaling 50 players, 5 teams of 10 guests. For large parties, it is not necessary to play the 5 optional players on the main game unless you want to.
Instruct the 5 teams to play as a team with an elected leader during the game. During the game, they will work together to solve the mysteries and the teams will compete to solve the mysteries first. For more than 5 mysteries to solve, purchase the 4 character expansion pack. To further your guest list beyond 50 players, the game can be expanded even further by assigning an additional 40 players to the expansion pack in four teams. This would make 90 players in the party with 9 mysteries to solve.
