HIGHLY SUGGESTED: Send your guests to: www.yourmysteryparty.com/1985murder for more information including the game trailer video, and more.
YOU WILL RECEIVE:
- Host instruction file
- 6 character packets (PDF files) to send to your players in advance of the party. They include instructions, a character bio, suspect list, and three rounds of game play (optional pre-game, round one materials, round two materials).
- Editable text field player contact sheet for pre-game
- Free invitation (optional to use)
- Free pre-game website (optional, but suggested)
- Spectator file so you can add more non-suspect players to the game as members of the LAPD. You'll send the same spectator file to any non-suspect/non-character players (unlimited #, but only include as many as you'd want to manage on Zoom or other video chat).

great way to expand game to more players. everyone will still suspect everyone!
Honestly so much fun to do with friends on zoom. However, if you have a big group with friends that are used to creating characters, a big group using the expansions may cause you to play this game for longer than you thought! But it honestly the most fun we’ve had during the pandemic
Loved these additional characters, they all had their own storylines and all the characters had no idea that they were 'add ons' my sister played one of these characters and believed she was an essential character in the game. It was really easy to add them in and it all ran smoothly. The only part I would change is to add them to the solution key at the end. My friends wanted to see the solution key and the 6 add on characters do not have an explanation as to why they are not the murderer. That is the only time that I would say the extra characters may not feel as involved. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FROM MMP STAFF: We are super glad you had a blast! We love to hear of success stories. The solution key is only used if you have questions, it's not really meant to be read to the group. That's why we have the solution video where the detective explains what happened. The answer key is just used for questions, and given that the expansion pack characters have more than one piece that rules them out - they weren't needed on the answer key. Nevertheless, I'll shoot this feedback to the author and it could be added soon. Thank you for your feedback!
similar to main packet, easy, clear and fun
I was so nervous about doing this because I have never played or attended a murder mystery and to add more pressure over Zoom. I work for a senior center and had so much fun! I suggest doing the pre-game email so everyone is familiar with the characters. Definitely going to do this again!
The Expansion pack added enough characters for our full party. I would say if you are hosting the party for 12 or 13 year olds it may be better to stick to the original pack so the group isn't too large.
