    Mardi Gras Fun

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 17th 2019

    This was our first murder mystery- we had a lot of fun- and learned a lot. The story line was great. The group that played was unsure but ended up really enjoying. The instructions are great, and explain how the evening should go. I purchased the pre-made option because I wanted to play also. IT IS worth the extra money, to not have to print and stuff all the envelopes and prepare all the information. Thank you for a fun evening.
