I was worried not everyone would play along, but they really did! Everyone got into character and had fun making accusations. Now we have to throw a mystery party every year! Unknown on Oct 29th 2019
My daughter and 13of her friends enjoyed the game very much. Tiring for the mum though. Sandra on Mar 20th 2018
This was the first Murder Mystery party I have planned , it Was very easy orchestrate the party with the PDF instructions provided. The characters were so much fun and everyone had a great night!!
When it was time for the victim to die it was a little confusing , with the north, south directions and no one knew to turn out the lights until after the victim died in front of everyone, then people moved in the dark, but it was just a little hiccup and the game was still great fun!!
I would definitely purchase again!
From MMP Staff:
The lights on/off is just in the story - there was no need to recreate anything involving the crime (that's why we don't tell you to do it in the host instructions) - but we're glad you had fun! Can't wait for you to try another game!
