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.

4 out of 10 star difficulty.

Mystery Synopsis: 

Dr. Larry Doom, heir to the Doom estate and a renowned chemist, has led a life mired in misery, lies, and deceit. After receiving troubling news from his doctor that he wasn't as healthy as he believed, he reflected on all the evil deeds he had committed against those closest to him. In a fit of regret, he pleaded with his niece, Miss Crimson, the only one still in his good graces, to host a dinner at Doom Mansion so he has a chance to reconcile with those he had wronged.

The guests will undoubtedly arrive at the mansion in style, anticipating an intriguing and mysterious evening. Dr. Doom has planned a glamorous night filled with sumptuous food, engaging conversations, exciting party games, and his long-awaited and highly anticipated apologies to everyone on the guest list.

You’ve received an invitation from Dr. Doom, who wishes to make amends. You hope the night holds nothing more than apologies. Dr. Doom isn’t known for his honesty, so you worry this could be a setup full of secrets, lies, and danger. This is where your story begins.

    We did the Doom mansion mystery for Christmas this year with the family and had a great time. Everyone enjoyed it. We bought the party ready package. Everything was ready to go and easy to set up! Great fun for everyone!
