I was worried that this party would be too simple for a group of 14-15 year old girls, but they ended up having a fantastic time. The mysteries were just hard enough to keep them interested without being boring.
I used this for our Girl Scout troop and it was well-received. They were able to solve the clues and final mystery and really enjoyed it. However, I wish it was set up for virtual parties. If each character's clues were in separate documents, I could have emailed a packet to each participant. As the mystery package was designed for in-person, at each new level, I emailed each person their new clues or put it in a private Zoom chat.
We loved the Mystery Party for my daughter’s 13th bday celebration because 1) I’m a last minute planner and it only took me about 1.5 hours to cut everything out/have everything planned and ready to go 2) kids can dress up easily (no extra purchase) 3) it was just the right amount of challenge for this age group
We played this as a virtual party game, and it was a great success!!! We printed and delivered the clue cards along with the pre-party activities that was part of the game pack, and I hosted the session with 14 girls who dialed in via zoom. Lots of laughter and fun while we were all safe in isolation.
The kit contains all you need to throw a pretty thought provoking mystery party. If you can - try to begin with the pre party work; that was my one regret. Next time!!
The girls (11 of them) had a great time! My only thought was that it could have been a more difficult mystery, but that was probably my fault because my girls were all 13.
The instructions were clear and user-friendly. Everything we needed was in the downloadable packet. The characters were fun and easy to assign. The mystery had just enough turns and twists to keep the girls wondering who was the jokester. I am so thankfully for a friendly mystery party with no "bad guys"!
