Murder Mystery Synopsis:

The Stratford Castle Ball is a premier social event hosted by the Kilmore Preservation Society. The society is comprised of many diverse individuals who have a passion to preserve historical landmarks like the Stratford Castle. The members come from all walks of life such as astronauts, artifact dealers, and medical researchers.  

This year, there have been many obstacles with planning the event due to a rising number of scandals between the members. In addition, nobody in the town of Kilmore feels safe to leave their home with a serial killer on the loose.  You are a member of the preservation society and must attend this event. This is where your story begins.

    Excited to see this play-out

    Bought this to play with a group, but party date is a few weeks away. My wife and I have both read thru everything in the package, and it looks AWESOME! The group is excited to participate and dress up like the characters mentioned. This may become a recurring event.

    We had a team build at work and used this party pack. We had 22 people and it worked out great. Everything was easy to use and understand. I had one question that I emailed about and got a response right away. We had a great time.
