Mystery Synopsis:

Holly O. Wene is famous for her exciting Halloween celebrations. Year after year people flock to their mailboxes during the month of October in hopes of finding an invitation to her bash. Halloween’s around the corner and the who’s who of Pumpkin Town will be soon be arriving to Holly’s mansion wearing the most creative Halloween attire, and ready to play fun Halloween party games, and dine on delicious spooky snacks. The town’s pumpkin patch owner, Mrs. Polly Pumpkin, plans to make a special announcement this year at Holly’s bash. The town gossips are dying to find out what Mrs. Pumpkin has to say!

Polly Pumpkin’s Pumpkin Patch is the preeminent spot to pick out your Halloween pumpkin in the entire world. Rumor has it that Mrs. Pumpkin plans to retire and is seeking an heir to carry on the family business. Sources closest to Mrs. Pumpkin say there may be challenging mysteries to tackle and scavenger hunts to endure before she selects a grand prize winner. A lot is at stake and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity!

You’ve received your invitation to Holly’s party. This is where your story begins. 

How to Host a Large Party:

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.

    Perfect for ages 5-adult!

    We played this game for Halloween, quarantine style this year. It was very well organized and had a lot of fun twists and activities for the kids. They all had fun, even adults! For “Polly’s Pumpkin Patch” I got one of those plastic pumpkins that are popular to trick or treat with and filled it with everything from pumpkin pie filling to pumpkin seeds and pumpkin candy and a pumpkin cup. It was a fun, real “pumpkin patch” our winner won! I’d highly recommend for your next kid friendly Halloween party!

    Takes time but worth it!

    It took quite a bit of time to put it together, but it accomplished all the things I was hoping for. Our party of 10 children 7-12 years of age, really mingled well, shared jokes and clues and had such a great time. Glad I bought it!
