Hawaiian Mystery Party Synopsis
The Oceanside Palace Hotel of Maui was hosting their nightly luau on Sunset Beach. Exciting Polynesian spirit filled the air as the guests were greeted with festive Hawaiian leis. Everybody mingled while enjoying delicious appetizers. The celebration kicked off with fun party games, but it became apparent that some guests didn’t get along and others were hiding scandalous secrets. The party forged on with a delicious Hawaiian dinner while the guests enjoyed a fun challenge. With stuffed bellies, the luau partygoers gossiped and laughed, and to everyone’s horror, a dead body was discovered! The guests rallied together and underwent a thorough investigation including a fiber analysis provided by the local police department. Taking short breaks to relieve the stress of the investigation, they engaged in more exciting party games. They took turns accusing the suspects they believed were guilty, and everyone came clean with their involvement in the crime. Backed into a corner, the murderer confessed! After a brave escape attempt by the killer, the guests enjoyed a delectable dessert and reflected on the evening’s exciting events! It was a luau that the guests will remember forever!

This was really a great time and well organized! I opted to order all of the character cards prepped and spoiler-free and it was WELL WORTH IT! There are a lot of materials and I would have felt overwhelmed had I opted to download and print it all on my own. It shipped quickly and arrived in a secure package. There is a bit of pre-game material that I was unaware of so it may be helpful for a host to open the package a day or two ahead of time just to familiarize themself with the game structure. It was truly so much fun. We had 9 guests for this game which works for 6-10 guests. We are already discussing what out next game should be! Thank you.
I've hosted 4 parties from this company and by far, they are the best. if you go anywhere else, you'll regret it. This mystery was different from the rest with plot/story and murder and I appreciate that - so my friends keep guessing what's next. (I've done others in the past from the cheap boxed set companies and the plots were too alike - never again!) HIGHLY recommend. Also, I've used the download versions and this was my first boxed set and again, I highly recommend, it's worth the money.
