This is a unique, one-of-a-kind large event game for 50-150 guests! There are ten suspects (CEOs) in this game. You are to assign the 10 CEOs, who are all nominees for the first annual Midas Award by Fordes Magazine, with a team of up to 14 players each to play the role of the supporting friends, family, and colleagues of the CEO. You can invite 300+ guests if you use the main game and expansion packs 1-2 (purchased separately). 

This game is designed for a large group event, particularly held in a ballroom where there will be a seated dinner / buffet. Each CEO will head a table of up to 14 additional players as supporting members seated with them. Important: there is a minimum of 50 players for this game. 

The victim is not an assigned guest, as with most of our games. This is the instant download upon purchase version of the game - no waiting, no shipping fees, as there is nothing that needs to be shipped, you'll have everything you need in the game file! Easy to host, easy to prepare. 

Note: this game is not able to be expanded any further and the custom character option is not available.  There are 20 available CEOs with the main game and expansion packs 1-2 (purchased separately) and this expands your game to over 300 players.

    So much fun...even in a pandemic

    Posted by Robyn on Dec 17th 2020

    My office hosted a murder mystery for our students that needed it to be compliant with covid regulations. The staff at Mystery Party was so helpful and responsive and suggested a way we could have a murder mystery party that would still be engaging and fun. The kit comes with all the details you need to have a successful party and our students had a blast! Thank you so much for helping us have a safe social gathering during these difficult times. I would highly recommend your company to anyone looking to try this.
