Murder Mystery Party Game Synopsis
In the town of Sun Valley, Sunny Shinewell is famous for having the most awesome pool parties. She invited the usual suspects who all arrived on the scene in their most fabulous poolside attire - ready for a day of fun in the sun. The guests arrived and enjoyed some yummy summer appetizers and fun party drinks while engaging in fun party games by the pool. The partiers settled down to enjoy a delicious dinner while relaxing in the shade.
Out of the blue, a guest collapsed to their death! The facts pointed to murder, so the guests quickly rallied together and commenced a thorough investigation to figure out whodunit. They took a few breaks to relieve the stress of the investigation and played fun party challenges. As they neared a conclusion of whodunit, Sunny served a to die for dessert. The suspects came clean with their involvement, if any, with the murder and to everybody’s surprise, the murderer confessed! After an exciting escape attempt by the guilty party, the guests topped off the party with another fun challenge in the summer sun.

Pandemonium at the Poolside
Hosted this at our local swimming pool. Kids aged 11-16 attended. They had a great time. Will definitely try another!
Best Work Party Event Ever
Our team is still raving about the fun they had. I received a lot of credit for throwing the BEST PARTY EVER, although MMP deserves all of the credit. The characters were a blast and everyone really got into the game. Our pre-party communication really got everyone excited to come in costume and play out their characters. We will be talking about this party for a long time. Everyone is already asking when the next one is and they are taking a survey to pick the next theme
Super easy to host, so much fun!
Amazing time was had by all. I found it simple to host and was able to play along with my friends. Will definitely do another one soon! Thanks!
Great pool party!
Everyone had a great time, getting into character was made easy by the self-explanatory materials. The only downfall was that there was so much reading required for the host. Truly a great time was had by all. Thank you for making this creative entertainment so easy to carry out. We had dramatic players as well as more reserved personalities and the varied characters accommodated everyone.
