Current Stock:

A fun all-female pop star album release party murder mystery game (face-to-face traditional mingling format) for 7-12 female guests, ages 13 and up due to difficulty. There is an expansion pack available for this game that includes another 12 female characters, with one paparazzi character that is expandable to another 10 players.

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.

Four out of ten for difficulty.

Murder Mystery Synopsis:

K. C. Hailstorm is hosting a VIP album release party for her debut album Tainted Cupcakes. This record is predicted to be the album of the year as it is stacked with potential chart-topping hits. K. C. has invited the who’s who of the music industry to the uber-exclusive Beverly Hills Posh Club for a night of great music and delicious food. The red carpet is ready to greet the biggest names in the industry.

On another note, the blood-sucking paparazzi members are armed and ready to capture the drama of the night, as it's nearly impossible to have big egos and outlandish personalities in the same space. However, K.C. hopes everything goes smoothly, as she definitely doesn't want any drama on her big day.

You've received your invitation and your personal stylist is working full time on what you’ll wear to this epic event. You have a poisoned history with a few of the other stars, so it is important that you are in the limelight – and not them. This is where your story begins.
