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.

I ordered this game for my 11-year-old's birthday dinner party. Everyone had a blast dressing up and playing their roles. Our party consisted of adults and children and it was a lot of fun. I would recommend giving your first round cards out to your guests before they arrive so they can study their characters. The recipes in the book were great and I found some fun cocktail drinks for both adults and kids online that spiced things up. If I had one criticism, I would say that the note cards for the characters had very small writing and some of our older players, Grandpas and Grandmas, had a hard time reading the print. Overall, everyone had a blast and this family recommends the "Once Upon a Murder Mystery Game." Wendy Niemczak on Aug 3rd 2020
Fabulous. I. Love. It. Well written, thought out. Instructions were simple. Mystery was challenging enough but not too challenging to where we lost interests. My guests totally got into character and I admit, I didn't think they would!
Would host another...soon... becuase my friends are demanding it. Fruitie Fly 354 on Jul 13th 2016
