Non-murder mystery party in a celebrity awards banquet theme for 8-16 female guests, ages 11 to adult (albeit it is an easier sleuth than our other adult games, given the minimum age). This party may be hosted in a home. The case involves a stolen award trophy.
There is an 8 player (6F, 2M) expansion pack available. This is the instant download upon purchase version of the game. There's nothing to be shipped, as you'll have everything you need with the download - no waiting, no shipping fees! Easy to host, easy to prepare.
It’s time to experience the glitz and glam of Hollywood at the 100th Annual Oster Awards. This year, this uber-exclusive awards banquet will be held in the historical Beverly Hills mansion of the legendary icon - Merry Monroe. A-listers are set to arrive on the red carpet wearing the crème de la crème of designer fashion. This will be a night of caviar and glitter as the nominees wait with anticipation for the big reveal of this year’s Oster Awards!
This is where your story begins.
|Minimum age:||11 years and up|
|Number of players in the main game:||16 females|
|Expansion packs?:||8 players (6F, 2M)|
My daughter turned 12 and wanted a sleep over party. That was out of the question. I hunted down something unique and that will keep kids off their phones. This was amazing. We (daughter and I) decided less than a week before, so I purchased the digital download. Make sure you single page print it out, not double sided.
The party was laid out and easy to plan and decorate, there are plenty of "Awards night themes" at the party stores. I really enjoyed the sample timeline that was available.
We told the girls to dress up according to their character.
We served sparkling apple cider in champagne flutes as a welcome and intro to the game. We had different snacks to separate the rounds.
The girls enjoyed being in character, however they might not have gotten the gist of "mingling" to find out information. It was a loud loud party.
The bonus games helped spread out the time and give them a chance to come out of character.
Everyone enjoyed themselves and no one was on a phone! I will probably do this again in a few years. Tammy on Sep 29th 2020
Mystery at the oster awards was awesome for my daughter's 13th birthday party. 10 girls participated and they all had a blast. The instructions were simple and easy to follow so things ran very smoothly. Stephanie Darveau on Dec 5th 2019
Just wanted to let you know that I have been doing your mystery parties here at LHS for years. Just did this one back in March and we had a wonderful time. Had to condense Rounds 1 and 2 together for times sake but overall it was very well received. Looking forward to doing more in the future. troy on May 3rd 2019
To echo what a previous reviewer said, the host should absolutely read through the entire instructional packet and use the bullet list/party timeline for each round and activity. This will help with game flow (you won't have to search through the big instructional packet during the game) and if you follow your party timeline it will ensure you don't go too fast or too slow through any round or activity.
Just like any other event, the more prepared the host is, the better the event will flow. Make sure to cut out all of the clue cards, evidence cards, police report, etc. in advance so all of that stuff is ready to go for the party. I even did a dry run as the host the day before to make sure it would all make sense to a bunch of 12 year olds. Paul on Feb 26th 2019
