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.
Nevertheless, you are intrigued by the thought of a Gothic dinner party held in honor of a fiendish bird – even if the group of ruffians may cause chaos. Chaos can be fun sometimes, right? This is where your story begins.

It was the first time I was hosting a murder mystery party and because I knew a lot of the guests were really into this kind of topics I choose to go for a more difficult level. We used all 18 players and it took us around 3.5 hrs for the 3 rounds (we didnt use any of the bonus activities). I had no idea about the killer nor the victims so it was fun to play along, although it was also a bit hard being the hostess since you are also trying to get everyone drinks and food in the meantime...nevertheless, possible. I didnt want to ruin any of the surprises so I asked a non-attending friend to look into the solution key to write down the second victims name and I would just look at it when it was time....she didnt look properly and gave me the name of the killer....which was very funny because it threw everyone off ...however, it didnt affect the end result as everyone had guessed differently...it was a lot of fun!

We used the Raven Party as part of our dinner networking event for our management development program. Everyone absolutely loved it and got into and stayed in character the whole time. It was an excellent way for people to further their connections at work and have fun at the same time. Jennifer S on Aug 8th 2018
