Old Doom Mansion mystery party
An entertaining clue-based murder mystery party for 6-10 guests ages 13 & up in a traditional old mansion setting. The game may be played as co-ed or all female (see the character list link below). In this game, the victim is not a cast member. It's Dr. Doom and is somewhat known prior to the game - and is not a guest at the party. This game is a ‘starter’ mystery for beginning sleuths or sleuths who just want a light, entertaining mystery.
Select the party ready option above, and our staff will fold and slip the clue cards for rounds one, two, and three into the envelopes to prevent you from seeing spoilers on the round cards. If you do not select this option, you will have some assembly required with your kit.
Dr. Larry Doom - the heir of the Doom estate and famous chemist - led a troublesome life full of misery, lies, and deceitful practices. After receiving some bad news from his doctor that he wasn't as healthy as a horse anymore, he reflected upon the past and of all of the evil things he had done to those close to him over the years. In a fit of regret, he begged Miss Crimson - his niece and the only one left in his good graces - to host a dinner for him at the Doom Mansion so he could resolve all the differences with those he had wronged in the past.
The guests accepted the invitation and the colorful cast of characters arrived at the mansion in style and ready to enjoy a delectable dining experience and to hear what Dr. Doom had to say. However, to everyone's shock, Dr. Doom was found murdered and the guests quickly rallied together to investigate whodunit, their motive, and how they did it before the police arrived. The guests did take a few breaks from the investigation to dine on a tasty dinner and play some amusing games as investigations are hard work!
Then, while relaxing and savoring some yummy hot chocolate and desserts, they came to a final conclusion of the mysterious death of Dr. Doom. It appeared to the group that Dr. Doom probably should have made amends with at least one of the guests long ago. The moral of the story is...never waste time turning your enemies into friends as it could end up being a deadly mistake!
