Murder Mystery Synopsis:

St. Patrick's Day is around the corner. The Shakin' Shamrock Pub in the quaint town of Old Lacken is about to be rockin' and rollin' with a packed house of intriguing Irish gents and ladies. The celebration will include festive music, tasty Irish delicacies, exciting party games, and engaging conversations. But this party's story could take a dark turn.

So many townsfolk are rivals who can't seem to exist in the same space for more than a few seconds without causing mayhem. The past year, Old Lacken has been riddled with dreadful scandals popping up from every direction. Longstanding feuds have heated from lukewarm to bubbles boiling over the brim. The Shakin' Shamrock management has acknowledged the issue and promises to keep the party going without incident.

You scored a ticket to the St. Paddy's bash and are dying to attend. This is where your story begins.

    Hey there! This was our first go round with a murder mystery. It was easy to follow and had all materials included. We had a lot of fun with it! I think we had a bit of operator error in timing etc. I think that gets better with the following mystery party. Looking forward :-)
