Bloodworth Falls is an isolated town plagued with scandals. The townsfolk bicker in the streets, and many believe the local government is corrupt. Nevertheless, the mayor is hosting a mysterious masquerade ball in the old Ravenwood Castle. The tickets to the event have sold out in record time. The townspeople are curious to find out why the mayor would put effort into doing something positive in this hopeless town of gloom. Anticipation for the event hangs thickly in the air, and many are already hunting for the perfect mask. You are worried what will happen on this night when toxic people come together. You are alarmed, as you didn't purchase your ticket - it was placed in your mailbox in an unmarked envelope. Somebody wants you there, but you don't know why. This is where your story begins.
This instantly downloadable game accommodates 40 unique players by using both expansion packs and an additional yet optional ability to expand to over ~130+ guests by using teams (duplicate players) with expansion pack #1. View the character list of expansion pack #1 for further details. The game may expand above 200, but not much further than that.

This event was such a hit with my friends they have asked that I throw one every year. I invited old friends, new friends, co-workers, and friends of friends. Everyone got into their characters and had a ball acting out each part of the party. We played the pregame and it just helped get everyone excited for the events that followed. As the host of the party, the best part was how I was able to be involved in the game without knowing who did what. Thank you My Mystery Parties for making my Halloween celebration a real treat for everyone involved! Unknown on Oct 27th 2018

This was the first time myself or my friends attempted to do a murder mystery dinner, but I had been anxious to host one since I was a young child. And this game pack gave us the opportunity to do so- while allowing me to be creative and in charge. Everyone had such a great time and walked away from the experience eager to try again, or to host their own. Keep up the great work! Haley Charles on Aug 3rd 2018
I bought this at the last minute the evening before heading off to a family reunion. It was fabulous that I could buy a well conceived murder mystery story and have the instant gratification of downloading it immediately to prepare for the party. If I had had to wait for a snail mail delivery, my family and I wouldn't have had such a blast playing this game! At first I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of pages I had to print out... but truthfully the instructions for preparing the game were explained so well that I was able to put it together in record time. And if I had purchased the game sooner, there were so many suggestions that I might have acted on to make the experience even more immersive. All in all my entire family would rate this game with all of our thumbs up, amid much laughter and joy. Thank you! Deirdre Heck on Jul 27th 2018
