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 find out 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 what will happen on this night when toxic people come together. You are alarmed, as you didn't purchase your ticket - it was placed in your mailbox in an unmarked envelope. Somebody wants you there, but you don't know why. This is where your story begins.

So impressed with the game pack I received. The quality of the resources and the amount of information provided to help us host the party is outstanding.
Ordered this for my daughter's sweet 16 in august. But after reading through the kit( I ordered the box one.) this is going to be so much fun. they give you everything you need and the details are not as difficult as I had thought they would be.
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!
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!
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!
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!
We had a blast!
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
