Not for novices - this is a challenging, interactive murder mystery game for 6-16 gender flexible players, ages 15 and up for difficulty. Players can start investigating before the party with the websites - there are a lot of materials to investigate, so this game is not for beginning sleuths or hosts who want a casual game. This game is unique, as you can make up to 16 players required to the game, but is expandable to over 300 players. 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 is the instant download version of the game.

Murder Mystery 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.

    Excellent Detail but Needs Careful Timing

    Posted by Katie on Dec 30th 2023

    The detail in the kit is excellent. Thorough evidence, company website, videos, etc… A few useful tips for running it however; It needs a special page or warning on how to know when to change rounds as that part is different from the other My Mystery Party kits. For round one it was a normal ‘when about half the people start looking around without a conversation partner’. For starting the envelope turn in however, I triggered that as half my players were no longer studying the evidence and looked ready to guess. Unfortunately that made those who gave up to pressure those still piecing together evidence to turn in before sure if their guess so no one solved it. As typical of a My Mystery Party kit, I always play the trailer and have everyone use cutout strips of the character bios to introduce themselves. It can be a tad awkward converting 3rd to 1st person, but it smooths over ‘who are you?’ part. Also, I convert the optional ending ideas to be linked to the player actions. So the murderer chooses between persuading everyone not to turn him in to running away. Then I link success and failure for each option they choose to the closest to plausible ending for that result (best endings for their character on success, worst on failure.) Overall, there’s things I would change in running it as a botched the timing bad enough that my players enjoyed the previous games I’ve run more, but the kit is 5 star quality. Absolutely would recommend do would keep the pacing in mind. Plan for a much longer time studying evidence than any other kit as too much of the solution is in the evidence to not go over every detail.

    Here's my review

    Posted by LP on Oct 17th 2023

    Had an absolutely amazing time with my 13 friends! The best part was that the game was so adaptable - we could easily add more friends or remove some if they couldn't come. The pre-game texting really got everyone excited and involved right from the start. The case files provided so much information that we were fully immersed in the game. Hosting was a breeze and didn't require much setup time - just follow the instructions and you're good to go! What made it even better was that I was able to set up without knowing who the murderer was, so it kept the suspense alive. It was so funny to see how even those who weren't initially interested got so invested in the game by the end. One memorable moment was when Kirby mistakenly thought a nail given to him by Lucky was a clue - so he was obsessed with it the entire night but didn’t tell us. Even though it was Sherlock level we were able to solve it even though it was our first time ever doing a murder mystery! Everyone is already planning to do it again! It was so much fun and I highly recommend it if you're looking for an enjoyable and stress-free murder mystery party. The price is definitely worth it considering everything that's included!

    Absolute Blast

    Posted by Josh on Dec 28th 2022

    First, was blown away by the friendly, responsive, and genuinely thoughtful customer service. Nancy helped me pick the perfect game for my party based on my customized event. We ultimately decided to move forward with The Last Will of Hunter Bentley. The materials that were available to hype the party really brought an elevated vibe to the event. Information drops helped the guests familiarize themselves with the storyline and the characters--including their own. The event itself was a great night! The host guide makes the party simple to host, but it comes with plenty of flexibility for additional customization. Our guests brought their A games with costumes and really got into the game flow. The pre-recorded videos helped set the tone for the event. The mystery was difficult to solve, especially for a group our size---but we still had a few that were able to crack the code. My only reservation on this game was the amount of information available. The hide/share information for each character contained a trove of information. Beyond that there were 2 drops for case files that were full of INTENSE detail! A few of our guests spent more time analyzing the case files than mingling. All in all, this is an incredibly written and thought out game. This company is a leader in their industry, and we will 100% be returning customers soon!!
