This is a challenging, interactive murder mystery game for 6 -16 gender flexible players, ages 15 and up for difficulty (not for novices). This game is unique, as you can make up to 16 players required to the game if you wish. There are four expansion packs available (all purchased separately) to equal 56 unique players. With the game and all expansion packs, the game is expandable to over 300 players with expandable teams that come with the expansion pack #1 purchase. This is the instant download version of the game. No shipping fees, no waiting, and you can download upon purchase - print & play! You'll have everything you need to play the game at the click of a button once you purchase the game. For the boxed kit (party pack), see below under 'Helpful Links.' 

Unlike our other mystery games, this one does not have a victim in the cast of players - the victim is disclosed upfront (Hunter Bentley). This game will cover the optional players seamlessly, so they will never know they were optional to the game.

This game has required video content. There are two required videos to play during the game and one that's available on the YourMysteryParty.com pregame guest site. Players should consider everything evidence, so your guests can start sleuthing before the party ever begins! No way to play videos for the guests? No worries, we'll give you backup script/transcript files for the required videos. However, you can download the videos before the game - so no Wi-Fi is needed to host the game. You will have multiple items to download with this main game purchase: host instruction file, printable file, solution file, backup transcripts, an optional alternate endings file, and a free invitation that is optional (also available below under 'Helpful Links'). 

Your players will have a website for sleuthing for more clues (www.hemloxx.com), and our free pregame website at Your Mystery Party (www.yourmysteryparty.com/bentley) includes expanded character bios, the game trailer video, personal costume suggestions for each character role, and more. In addition, the players can read about their character, as well as study up on others that will be at the party, if they desire. 

8 out of 10 murder mystery rating difficulty.   THERE IS A LOT OF INFORMATION TO REVIEW IN THIS CASE, GIVEN THE 8/10 DIFFICULTY LEVEL.

 Synopsis:  

Two days ago, Hunter Bentley's body was discovered face down in the front courtyard of his estate. Given the chaotic scene, the coroner's first impression was that a series of unfortunate accidents had caused Hunter's death. Since the dearly departed was the CEO of Hemloxx, Incorporated, thousands of livelihoods were on the line. Within the hour, Hunter's sibling became his replacement. Unfortunately, many relatives have now flocked to the sprawling mansion, staking unfounded claims on his possessions. Unsurprisingly, those squatting inside the property within the affluent neighborhood of Rumson Waterloo Estates have started feuding. This morning, Hunter Bentley's death was declared a homicide, sending worldwide shockwaves. Hunter's attorney must make short-term decisions for his possessions, obligations, estate management, and anything else that needs attention before the probate attorneys settle the estate. All family members received a notice of a mandatory meeting at Hunter's estate. The local news anchor requested that anyone who believes they might be mentioned in Hunter's last will attend this meeting. You found that to be peculiar, but you think there is a chance the Last Will could include you. You plan to attend. This is where your story begins.
