Murder Mystery 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.

    The murder mystery was a fun time for my family and friends. Printing and putting the items together took some time but it was well worth it.

    We had a lot of fun. I loved how the murderer didn’t even know it was them until the end. Would purchase another one.

    This was our first murder mystery party. Everything was provided and all we had to do was print, cut and organise. Loved every minute and so did our guests. This is the start of something very exciting!!

    Great for family!

    This murder mystery game was actually really fun. I have never done one before, let alone, planned one for others. Everyone got into it and some people caught into the killer. Even the kids were interested in the game. We did a cute cat walk after the game to show off our ugly Christmas sweaters.

    Fun night

    I would order another mystery murder package. We had 18 people from age 18-90. There were any laughs! Everyone got into their characters! We did take breaks between the rounds to eat and just chat. The package is well laid out. Do read through it a few times before the night and assign your characters a few days before so they can read up on them and prepare. That makes it fun!

    This was the first murder mystery my family has ever done. I planned the party also a first. I must say it was very easy to pull together and everyone had a lot of fun. I would recommend this game to anyone. We loved it.

    8 teens had a great time

    We kept it simple and with 8 girls it went much quicker than the given time line. It was a success and the murderer was found:-) I have organized several mysteries. This one was straight forward and easy to follow.
