An intriguing murder mystery game for 4-10 players, ages 13+ to be played at home or in a virtual setting. This game takes about two hours to play. This is the instant download version of the game - no waiting, no shipping fees - download and play - no printing is needed. The game can be played in two ways - at home with a group or via a video-chat service of your choice. If you don't intend on playing it face-to-face, you'll need to arrange a video chat, such as Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp, Google Hangouts, Google Duo, ooVoo, Facetime or any other tele-conferencing software you may have access to. Note: we are unable to set up nor assist with technical support for the video chat service - for advice on how to use a video chat, you'll need to contact whatever program's tech service you plan to use - if you are not already familiar. Also, at least one player will need internet access to be able to search for information.
Leota Xavier was the most despised lady in the town of Dreary Hollow. With a sharp tongue and scowls galore, this spinster managed to make more enemies than friends during her miserable lifetime. A five-time widow with more money than good sense, she had retired from being the headmistress at Dark Harbor Preparatory School long ago. She lived alone in a mansion on the outer edge of town with nine cats and terrorized the townsfolk when her butler drove her into town. To nobody’s surprise, Leota’s body was discovered in her front yard early this morning. The Dreary Hollow Police have summoned you. You either have the missing pieces of the puzzle needed to solve the case, or you are a prime suspect. This is where your story begins.
Used this game for my daughter who turned 13. This was may be a little bit too difficult for a group of 12-13 yo girls playing this type of game for the first time. They still enjoyed it and had fun. Sylvain on May 21st 2020
My friends and I had a blast doing this murder mystery party! We did it virtually, using Zoom, and it was nice that our friends in another country were able to play with us. Everyone got really into character and played it up. Only two of the nine playing were able to figure out who the murderer was. Great mystery!
As a reference, because I wasn't sure what age was the target audience for these when looking through previous reviews...we're all in our early 30's and everyone had a great time. Taryn on May 18th 2020
We played Murder in Dreary Hollow over zoom with each character played by a pair.
Everyone had a blast and we even had 3 groups guess the murderer correctly in the end.
Really fun night and worked fine playing virtually. We have also played a different murder mystery off the site in person and felt that the experience was still there for the virtual version.
Get way to spend my iso birthday. Siobhan on May 13th 2020
A group of friends who usually gather for board games and breakout rooms opted for this virtual murder mystery party over Zoom. The instructions are SO thorough and I felt very comfortable as "host" leading the group through the mystery. The tips from previous hosts were very helpful as well. This was our first time using My Mystery Party, but won't be our last! Salamanda on May 12th 2020
