The historical Anonville Manor closed for business years ago because of a desperate need for restoration and daft rumors of ghost hauntings. The previous owners abandoned the rundown property, never turning back.
A secretive entrepreneur purchased the old bed & breakfast. The property has undergone renovations, and the owner announced to the media that the manor is free of paranormal activity, and has been restored to the pristine caliber of the good ole’ days when the estate was frequented by the rich and famous. The proprietor has chosen to remain anonymous, but the townsfolk have found that choice to be quite mysterious. An exclusive group of guests have received invitations to the grand opening dinner party to be held in the legendary Majestic Ballroom of the estate. You are on the guest list. You are intrigued, but apprehensive, as not everybody on the invite list gets along well, and sparks could fly. This is where your story begins.

This is a great deal! Everything was prepared and all I had to do was print the pages that I needed. All the information needed was given. There were recipe suggestions if you wanted to use them but again I used my own meal planning. The package also lays out a time frame for the entire evening so you know you are on the right track. I chose to read the entire mystery before assigning characters so that I would pick the best person for each. As a host, I also gave myself a character but I was very selective about it in order to accommodate my hosting expectations...
Thanks for giving us a great party. We're already planning our next one from you!
This is the 4th party we've ordered from my mystery party and they've all been great. This was for my 15 year old daughters birthday with 10 kids - both girls and boys. I was looking for something challenging because she and her friends love puzzles and games and a good challenge. They had so much fun. The only thing I changed was the word scramble. I knew that would be too easy for them. Instead I made a list of phobias and definitions. In teams they had to match the phobia word with the rIght definition. We played all of the other optional games except charades. This game is great for teens and would be fun for adults as well.
We had 20 guests for the Anonville Manor murder mystery dinner party. The guests had a blast. No one 'guessed' the murderers identy early. It took me a few hours to set up the game. If your short on time it would be worth having the vendor send you a ready to go kit.
Our daughter did the Ravenswood mystery party last year and this year her friends wanted her to have another mystery birthday party so it was nice to find one that had so many players and could add more from the expansion pack too to include 21 friends.
