    Costume Ball Mystery Synopsis 

    It is time again for the annual Skull Manor Costume Ball! Skull Manor is an old estate in the heart of Spider City known for its captivating architecture, mysterious ambiance and unspeakable history. The townspeople have been scurrying about the streets to get ready for the big night of great food, inspiring conversations and, of course, outrageous gossip. This has been a daunting year of dissension and discord among many of the residents of Spider City. Rumors of blackmail, thievery, and scandalous controversies have been circulating throughout the town’s grapevines. We all hope everybody can put aside their differences for a night of fun. If not, there may be misfortune on the horizon. This is where your story begins.

    1. SO MUCH FUN!

      This was our first Murder Mystery Party and our friends came through with costumes & getting into character! We had a blast! Word got around and everyone wants to come to our next one! Highly recommend! on Aug 5th 2018

    2. First time murder party

      It was an awesome game. It was our first time hosting a murder mystery party and the box made it really easy. Highly recommend this one. Also, there isn't really anything in it ,asking it PG13. on Aug 27th 2017

    3. Loved this party!

      The guests were engaged the whole time and screamed for more once the killer confessed. Can't wait to host another party! on Nov 6th 2016

    4. Most fun I've ever had!

      I hosted this party last Halloween (hence, why I'm shopping in the Halloween section in June), and my friends are still talking about how much fun they had at this party. They are forcing me to host another one.
      Be aware - once you host one of these parties, your friends will make you keep doing it. But that's okay, they're so much fun and easy to host.

      The kit was well organized, the mystery was fun to investigate and only a handful got it right! I loved everything about this.
