We were away for the weekend with 4 families. 8 kids 10-17yrs plus 6 adults. It was very last minute, we bought the kit online the night prior to the party and handed out the characters the morning of. The kids were so excited, practicing their characters during the day before we started. It was so much fun and was talked about for days. We peeked at the round 1 clues and picked an easy character for the 10year old and she really surprised us, she didn’t need any help and got right into it. Great fun for the whole family.

This was our first time hosting a mystery party so we weren't sure how it would go. It was the first time for most of our guests to be involved in something like this also. There were a couple of hiccups, but we just rolled with it, we had 22 people in attendance and everyone had a great time. The host directions were very clear and easy to understand. With the feedback from our guests we will now be making this an annual affair, can't wait to find out which one of our friends is murdered next! The Woodshed on Oct 31st 2020

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
