You have received an invitation to a raven party at the Poe Mansion in the gloomy crime-ridden city of Wraith’s Cove. The town gossips are chattering about the disreputable people on Eddie Poe’s guest list. What could Eddie be thinking? Could it be that Eddie has finally gone mad? It appears that at least the Poe Mansion’s in dire need of assistance. Ever since Eddie’s housekeeper quit, the estate is in shambles.

We used this theme for my daughters 17th birthday party. We had 18 kids participate and everyone had so much fun. They dressed up and played their parts wonderfully. At the end of the night most were asking when we would be hosting the next one! Unknown on Jul 11th 2021
We had 25 people participate and get SO into this murder mystery at our Halloween party this weekend. Everyone had a blast & got so much energy from playing. We didn’t have folks dress for their characters, they were assigned as they walked in, but it still worked wonderfully. A strong emcee helped guide the mystery and another helped plant the costume cards stealthily. Getting rave reviews still from people! Caroline on Nov 4th 2019
We ordered this game for my husband's 40th birthday party. It was so much freakin fun. We invited 17 guests and it turned out perfect. The timeline provided in the game was the perfect amount of time to play out the event. I wanted to be part of the game so I didn't read everything for the third round so assigning the 2nd victim was a little confusing but still turned out great! We served cornished hens "ravens" for our meal so it was a great addition to the party. Although if you're pressed for time cook something quick that can be easily dished up and served. Make sure to leave time between the 2nd and 3rd rounds to let your guests guess whodunit before passing out the Round 3 cards. You are assured to have a blast! Donna Manning on Nov 3rd 2019
Had 14 people for a party and this kit made it easy and smooth. Everyone had a great time and we will be talking about this for a while. Can’t wait to try another game. Unknown on Oct 29th 2019
