Once upon a time, there was a faraway land called the Enchanted Realm. The people of the land got along harmoniously for many centuries...that is, until Queen Black gained control of the Silver Tree Forest. It was not long before happy endings turned into nightmares, as the ruling Kingdom of Gullyshire suffered repeated attacks, and the villains began to gain control. The mystic mountains filled with nefarious monsters and were no longer safe, and wicked witches took over the charmed forest. Queen Black has shocked the realm and has invited all of the territories to the Dark Castle of the Silver Tree Forest to sign a peace treaty. She may have evil intentions, but nonetheless, you have been invited by Queen Black, and this is where your story begins.

My 6th grader just did the Once Upon a Murder party last night for her birthday. The kids ranged from 10-12 and had an absolute blast! They all got into their characters and loved every second. It made for a memorable birthday for sure! The photos are so great!!!! Plus, everything was spelled out and done for me. I just had to print and cut which made it easy to Focus on all the touches to make it special. Kacey on Nov 4th 2018
We used this mystery package for birthday party for my 13 year old daughter. They really enjoyed themselves! We avoided using the costume tips or photos, because we didn't want anyone to feel like they had to buy anything. I am glad we did, because the girls were very creative about putting together their own versions of their characters. The instructions were clear and helpful. Compared with other activity based party options, this is a great value! I hope there are more kid friendly mysteries on this site, because the girls are already talking about how much they want to do this again next year. May we suggest a Harry Potterish or Star Wars-like theme? Unknown on May 22nd 2018
8 eleven- and twelve-year old girls had an awesome time with these characters! We laughed all night and added unicorn punch and unicorn cake to the mix. The storyline, etc. was a little much for the younger kids, so agree with the publisher that this is probably for 13-14 year olds. They needed a little help with reading and big words. BUT, would love to see there be more 'junior' level mysteries for younger audiences - Fairytale would be perfect to 'juniorize'! Leigh O on Apr 22nd 2018
We used this game with the Expansion pack for more boy character parts.
My group of 14 8th graders performed this game to an audience at a school spaghetti dinner.
This was the first time trying a Murder Mystery for all of them.
We found it easy to follow and lots of fun! Diners made a donation for our dinner/theater as a fundraiser to raise money to send the kids on a future D.C. trip.
Might become an annual!
Please write more teen-family friendly mysteries! Annette Vola Hansen on Jan 28th 2018
