               Murder Mystery Party Game Synopsis

The Snowflake Lodge is hosting an ugly Christmas sweater party again this year. The townspeople of Snow Falls are excited about the holiday celebration, as the lodge is where the who's who of society will flock to show off their not-so-fashionable holiday attire.

Unfortunately, sparks have flown between some of the guests lately with rumors of blackmail, greed, and revenge.  However, everyone has high hopes that the holiday spirit will be enough to quench the scandals - at least long enough for everybody to have a good time at the party.

You've received your ticket to the party. Now it's time to hunt for the tackiest holiday sweater you can find.  

This is where your story begins.

    Perfect Office party

    Posted by Holly Spooner on Dec 28th 2022

    This was the perfect office party game. Everyone came in their ugly sweaters and the game was easy to follow. All participated and had a great time. I recommend for parties where you may not know everyone. I found that people really got into it!

    Murder at the ugly Christmas sweater party

    Posted by Sheila on Dec 19th 2022

    It was very reasonably priced and the directions were easy to follow and getting things ready was simple and didn't break the bank. We are doing this mystery on Christmas eve and all invited can't wait for everything to play out. Others I have told about it are very interested in having a party too and the best thing is I can organize all of it for them to enjoy too. Can't wait to try other ones!

    Great fun with students!

    Posted by Amanda on Dec 5th 2022

    To provide something fun for my students to write and argumentative essay, I decided to try this mystery out. It was so much fun! The kids had a blast and even dressed in ugly sweaters. It was a great way to get them to write.

    My holiday office party was a blast

    Posted by Courtney on Dec 20th 2021

    I ordered the Party Ready Pack for my office holiday party this year and everyone had a blast! We had 20 people so it was the perfect number. I would recommend the host go over the forensic report a few times before the party and just give a summary to your guests because it's a lot to take in at first. About half our group guessed the murderer so it wasn't too easy or too hard

    We just might make this a holiday tradition. Our small group and our significant others had a great time at the Snowflake Lodge!

    Absolutely Perfect

    Posted by Taylor B on Dec 16th 2021

    I was nervous hosting my first murder mystery party but this company helped me pull off an amazing event for my birthday!! Everything was so easy to plan and facilitate. I had about 20 guests and they all came ready to play with ugly sweaters and suggested props. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone even considering it. I wish I had used the pre-game feature, but everything was perfect even without it. I chose to do appetizers throughout the night instead of a sit down dinner and that too worked out really well. Only one person was actually able to solve the mystery. Overall the game was excellent and we all had a great time!

    So much fun!! More than expected!!

    Posted by DeDee Quinn on Dec 13th 2021

    We had 27 players. I purchased the expansion kit as well. I only assigned 2 players to the news crew from the base game. You could have more but based on my group this worked best. Also you don’t have to use all of them. I selected the best characters to match what fit my group. The ages ranged from 18-52. We had adults and adult kids. It was harder to solve than I thought. Only three people out of group guessed correctly- adding this information to let you know it’s not cheesy and easy!! Lol. Everyone wants to make this an annual event. We loved it’n

    10 Birthday Party Success!

    Posted by Melissa on Dec 13th 2021

    This was so much fun. I was a little worried that is was going to be a bit much for 9,10 and 11 year olds... but they did amazing! They got into it and loved all the gossiping and really sat down and tried to figure out who did it! I would recommend this to anyone who has an out going bunch of people. Loved every minute of this!
