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.

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
Our daughter was looking to do something unique & different for her 12th birthday party. She loves mysteries and clue-type games so when I suggested a "mystery party" she was all-in. The "Oster Award" theme worked perfectly as her party was on the same day as the actual Oscar Awards! We had 12 girls at the party between the ages of 11-13 and they all loved pretending to be hollywood starlets and trying to figure out all the clues to the mystery. We held her party in a room at our local community center and decorated it in full hollywood glamour, including a red-carpet entrance and hollywood star walk with each of their names on a star (great party favors). The game was the perfect difficulty level for their age - if you're paying attention and taking good notes it's relatively straight-forward to figure out whodunit (process of elimination).
