A masquerade ball murder mystery party game for 8-18+ guests, ages 14 and up due to difficulty. 

Spoil yourself, and choose the spoiler-free option above, and our staff will fold and slip your clue cards for rounds one, two, and three into the envelopes to prevent you from seeing spoilers on the round cards. Without the spoiler-free option selected, you will have some assembly required with your kit and there will be spoilers upon opening the kit and viewing the rounds 2 and 3 clue cards. 

The download version is a different product and does not come with the party pack, as they are not seamless and materials should not be used together.

Mystery Synopsis:

Bloodworth Falls is an isolated town plagued with scandals. The townsfolk bicker in the streets, and many believe the local government is corrupt. Nevertheless, the mayor is hosting a mysterious masquerade ball in the old Bloodwood Castle. The tickets to the event have sold out in record time. The townspeople are curious to discover why the mayor would put effort into doing something positive in this hopeless town of gloom. Anticipation for the event hangs thickly in the air, and many are already hunting for the perfect mask.
You are worried about what will happen when toxic people come together this night. You are alarmed, as you didn't purchase your ticket - somebody placed it in your mailbox in an unmarked envelope. Somebody wants you there, but you're unsure why. This is where your story begins.

  • A: 8-18 players is the main game
  • B: 8-24 players is the main game and expansion pack#1
  • C: 8-32 players is the main game, expansion pack #1 and the first 8 on expansion pack #2

    This was my first time hosting a party like this. I am so incredibly happy with the kit and will definitely be hosting more parties in the future. Everything came in great packaging with detailed instructions, plus extra items such as menu suggestions and games. I am thoroughly impressed with the detail that the kit provided. Thank you!

    SO much fun!

    We hosted a murder mystery party for my birthday last year! I have never had so much fun! I have to admit I was nervous at first but by the 2nd round everyone got into it. We all had a blast. It is going to be a new tradition that we do every year!

    Great Game!

    I purchased this game for my 30th birthday celebration and it was perfect! We probably had too many people (35) but the game came all packed in envelopes so as the host we were able to play the game too! So fun and easy to play!

    Ravenwood Masquerade Mystery Party

    I was very pleased with the quality of the items I received in my pre-packaged murder mystery party pack. I just wish there were some 'save the date' cards to send to my invitees.

    I was pleasantly surprised on the quality of the kit! The instructions are very detailed, but simple. The invites and envelopes are really really nice. Great quality paper used! Everything is packaged according to the rounds of the game. I also ordered the certificate awards. Worth the purchase!

    Loved it

    Posted by Kim on Jan 6th 2017

    9 people did this for New Year's Eve party A lot of fun. Costumes were not too crazy. Some people did over the top costumes and some were minimal. It all worked. Good story line and we added a few mini games to mix things up. Fun
