Current Stock:

A fun Halloween murder mystery party for 8-12 guests, ages 13+ due to difficulty. 45 unique character roles with all three expansion packs and main game. Expansion packs will expand to accommodate 225 guests (see outline on how to host a large party below). Select the party ready option above, and our staff will fold and slip the clue cards for rounds one, two, and three into the envelopes to prevent you from seeing spoilers on the round cards. If you do not select this option, you will have some assembly required with your kit. 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. 

Five out of ten for difficulty.

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.
