Current Stock:

An exciting escape room murder mystery party for 6-10 guests or 6-16 guests (all either gender), ages 15+ for difficulty. Note: you will need to set up a DIY escape room as part of this game. However, we give you detailed instructions on how to set this up on a separate website that you will have access to with your purchase. You can set up an escape room in any room in your home with printable and common household items - no outside purchase is necessary.

If you wish for us to prepare your printed materials for the escape room portion of this game, you'll need to select the option in the drop down box above. However, if you wish to be more elaborate with your escape room, we will provide you with instructions on DIY on the site (you'll receive the link and password with the kit in the mail).

Spoil yourself, and choose the party ready option above, and our dedicated staff will fold and slip your clue cards for rounds one, two, and three into the envelopes to prevent you from seeing spoilers on the round cards. Without the party ready option selected, you will have some assembly required with your kit and there will be spoilers upon opening the kit and viewing the rounds 2 and 3 clue cards.

Mystery Synopsis:

You received a mysterious invitation to an escape room party. The party address is a leased vacation home, so the host could be anyone in the fog-covered town of Noxhelm’s Crossing. You have no idea who invited you, but you are familiar with everyone on the guest list. The invitation says you will work as a team to escape the room before time runs out. You’ve always wanted to challenge yourself by solving a timed mystery in a room filled with puzzles, riddles, and codes. 

You are intrigued by the host's choice of guests, as these are the most ambitious yet scandalous people in town. Putting this combination of powerful personalities into an intense scenario may have deadly consequences. 

Nevertheless, you’ve always considered yourself a daring person who loves a challenge. You have decided to attend this adventure. This is where your story begins.
