The Devonshire Manor is an 18th century mansion on the outskirts of the town of Pinehorn. It was once owned by the wealthy Devonshire family and is a legendary estate to the citizens of Pinehorn. In their day, the Devonshires were beloved, treated as royalty, as they owned more than half of the businesses in town. The Devonshire Manor has exquisite architectural features, albeit weathered throughout the years. Weeds and high grass have long since replaced the flowering shrubs and ornamental trees that adorned the property in its day. The remaining Devonshire lineage passed away in the early 1900’s, leaving their estate in the hands of the town of Pinehorn. The townspeople have neglected to keep up with the place, mostly due to the legend that the Devonshires still roam the corridors at night. The mayor of Pinehorn has made it her quest to remodel and reinstate the Devonshire Manor as a historical bed and breakfast. She believes that the old estate can generate tourism and an income for the town of Pinehorn. Most of the townspeople stand behind her, although a few people are adamantly against her pursuit – stating that the place is haunted and should be left alone. The mayor cleaned up the dusty cobwebs and is hosting a fundraiser bash for the townspeople of Pinehorn. She hopes to raise enough funds for her remodeling endeavors. You have been invited to attend the event and this is where your story begins…

I hosted this for friends from church. Our group included adults and teens/preteens. I paired up my youngest players with the characters that allowed for extra characters. That worked perfectly! This was everyone's first time to do a murder mystery, so we were a little unsure of ourselves, but the character cards were clear on what to say.
My only advice to future hosts would be to make it very clear at the beginning of the game, or murder round, that the victim must allow enough time before becoming the victim.
I ordered the downloadable version and had a friend that was not coming to the party cut everything out and put it in envelopes that I provided. It did not take her long to do, and it was easy for her to understand.
The folks at MyMysteryParty.com want you to have a successful party! I emailed them multiple times with questions, and they were ALWAYS quick to answer and very helpful.
I also LOVED that I did not have to worry about questionable (adult) topics coming up during the party. Thank you for that! I will be a repeat customer for sure!

Our university Cooperative house used this kit as a fundraiser and everyone had a fantastic time! The characters were amusing and the game kept everyone on their toes! Our house is actually called Devonshire, so this kit was perfect! Unknown on Jul 1st 2018
This is the Second Mystery Party we have ordered from here. First one was great. We have not done this last purchase yet. We are gathering a lot of props for this one. They make for a great party. You can put as little work into it with what they provide or as much work as you choose. They are great fun either way. Our goal for this Mystery Party , we want to have a lot of surprises lurking around each corner. Doty Stephens on Feb 3rd 2018
We had 7 of us all required and it was a blast. We had some drinks while reviewing everyone's roles. We played for about 3 hours and it was a loads of fun. Everyone wants to do it again.
Since it was our first time, I was a little worried that it would be difficult but it went super smooth and was lots of fun. Brad on Jan 23rd 2018
