The Toadwart Inn is a historical place within the magical community where magical folk gather safely away from the snurbs (i.e. non-magical part of society) to have a wonderful and relaxing time. Magical beings anticipate the yearly Witch’s Brew Social sponsored by the inn, as the who’s who of the supernatural world will certainly be in attendance.
This event will be the ultimate opportunity for magical beings to taste all of the latest flavors of witch’s brew and catch up on juicy gossip. The guests are set to arrive at the gathering riding the most outlandish and expensive models of brooms. Cameras will flash as the Merlin’s Daily and Merlin Morning Timesreporters capture the guests donning this season’s most fashionable hats, robes, and wands.
Get ready for magical challenges, delectable dishes, and merriment with your magical friends! This is where your story begins.

Just had my daughters birthday party and it worked like a dream. Girls had a fantastic time. Timings worked perfectly. All easy to follow and understand. Highly recommend.
As an owner of my own murder mystery business, I always love getting to experience a murder mystery that I haven't crafted myself. So often I do not get to play along with everyone because I know all the answers. So I loved getting the opportunity to enjoy the evening and solve the murder along with everyone else! The setup is as simple or complex as you want it to be. I had everything ready to go within a day (it was a last minute decision to do with visiting family.) But the story was funny and the characters are easy to become especially in a group of people willing to let their inhibitions go. It really embraces the ideas of the events and makes people talk because there is crucial evidence that has to be discussed so that everyone has an opportunity to solve the mystery. And I loved the reveal of the killer and their motives. Everyone was soooooo close to figuring out everything. Some people figured out the killer but the motive was wrong, while others pegged the wrong killer but had valid motives to support their accusations! The entire event was simply a blast and a half!!!!
We downloaded the game for a stuck-at-home birthday party. The materials were terrific and we all had a wonderful time.
I had a good mixture of outgoing people and introverts. I was surprised by how into it the introverts got! Fun excuse to dress up. It was a blast.
We plan on using this at work in a three act skit for Halloween. This is the 11th time we've done this and each time it's been a huge success! This mystery has all the elements of a great time!
This is our first party and not our last for sure! It was a huge hit! We used the expansion kit and the guests were ages 12-15 and it was not too difficult for them. They had tons of fun! I added two more “in party games”and an award ceremony and the party was about 4 hours total. I hosted but did not participate so I read all the clues prior which I felt helped me as the host. Obviously if you’re hosting and participating, DO NOT read any clues! We liked this game because it was fun and had funny moments as well.
We used this for our Harry Potter themed Halloween party last year and it was a great hit! We have already purchased from them again for this year. The games are well put together.
This is the second game I've purchased from here. I love them
I organized this murder mystery party for my family. We played it the day after Thanksgiving. Everyone loved it, especially because we all love Harry Potter. I would recommend this to any family or group of friends that wants to have a fun evening.
